That's pretty sweet!  My only thought is that I'd probably want to use those jars again before the cakes were done fruiting.

For sure and I’ve run into that problem a couple times where I want to start another project with cakes and all my jars are being used for testers. But I really need to get the short 1/2 pints for cakes lol. Without fail I run into the problem of the bottom of the cakes taking a long time to colonize.. just happens with the tall guys

Maybe I missed it, but what's in those test jars for substrate?.

I like the idea. And might have to try something similar.



Oh yeah. I peeked in the top of the cardboard box and my sub in the zip lock is colonizing great for 2 days in

Nice!

It’s about 1/3 cup grain spawn to 2/3 cup coir/verm. I’ll either shoot spores to that amount of grain or I’ll clone to that grain and either use it for grain liquid culture or just spawn it to those tester jars

They give you a good idea of how a culture is going to perform on larger subs or if I want to get clone material or a spore print.

Sweet. I've got a few clone samples colonizing. I'm gonna try to do grain to grain with part of each half filled quart jar and then try a couple tester jars like that. Then if they're looking good I will have a couple full grain jars ready to rock.

I can only hope they grow half as good as yours. Those last ones were beauties.
