Welcome to Mycotopia, Harpua !
The waiting is the hardest part. ;)

Great idea using the heat mats with the ceramic tiles

Just saw some mycelium starting in my last jar. It’s been 9 days since inoculation.
So far so good

I see it both ways and I’m not sure which is better.

I think with the help of everyone here I’m only a few weeks away from harvest.

I'm pretty much following the Magic for the Masses guide....out of 12 jars only one doesn't have growth after a week
That's fucking awesome!
I think I just found the answer. No holes!
I included a no-holes method in MFTM because it is the simplest way, but if you do it then you want to be really sure to fan those babies well about four times a day. Also, it's definitely good to get some light in there. Does your tub let any light in? I've had good luck replacing the lid on opaque tubs with plastic sheeting, like a piece of shower curtain. You could also cut a hole in the lid and glue plastic over the hole to let light in.

The mushroom smell was amazing. The only thing that scared me was what looked like cobweb mold on the top of the contamination barrier. I carefully scraped it off and rinsed. The hardest part was trying to keep them under water for the dunk.

Yeah, it's common for a whispy layer to grow up through the verm barrier. No worries. Rinse it off well and dunk. :)

Half my jars took longer because I forgot to shake the syringe between holes.

I’v been growing plants of all kinds for over 20 years and I always thought growing mushrooms was way too complicated. Following the Magic for the Masses made this simple enough to get me going and now I’m hooked.

I woke up at 4:20 am and harvested about 40 grams. Ate 2 to celebrate: )
The cake on the bottom was a little blue so it’s dunking now
