Hi all, so I started in the world of mushroom cultivation about two weeks ago with a PF Tek of some B+ And wanted to show a picture of one of ten jars so I could get some feedback and advice as to when to birth them. All jars look pretty much like this one except one that has colonized half way the BRF. No jars show signs of contamination. Yay!
Thanks for any advice!

I would suggest that you stick with the "Tek" for your first try!  Page 16-17 in Chapter 3 of the "PF Tek". The original.

After the substrate turns white with the mycelium (2 to 4 weeks after inoculation), the jars are left to sit in

indirect light. The mycelium will continue to infiltrate the substrate until it gets enough food to trigger the
fruiting cycle. In less than a week to a few weeks after surface colonization of the cake (cake appears all
white), tiny white "pin" like structures begin to appear. This is called pinning. This is the beginning of the
fruiting cycle. Soon after that, within the week, small round fungus growths appear that soon begin to turn
The best time to remove the fungus cake from the jar is when the primordia (tiny worm like structures with
reddish heads) appear on the cake while still in the jar. Be careful not to damage them in handling. The rule is
to handle with care.
