you're missing out on a lot of shrooms,
dunking boosts yields by anywhere

should i put these jars in the fridge? if so, should i do it now or when they are fully colonized?
or will they be ok if i just keep them in the incubater?

One good tip I got from Hippie though - when you refrigerate the spawn make sure it is sealed so it doesn't dry out.

It didn't stop after it was taken out of the fridge, it happened while it was in the fridge.
Its colonizing fine now, it just put me a little more behind schedule than I had planned.

I'm thinking it may be better to use a filter patch of some sort than poking holes in the oven bags...if you've contam issues, could they not enter through the holes? Be ruthless man!

From what I've been told the more fresh air the better as far as contams go, the container is what you might call a mini-LB (dehydration may be a problem)

and actually it was 2 jars.. and they were used to make 2 pesa straw nugs... they fruited well... even got a second flush and a few monster out of them..
if it hasn't gotten the mean green it might just be the lucky one to make it.. make sure to fan often.. trich loves stail air... but other then that as long as it seems to be doing alright just let her go.. good luck :)

Aside from that....spawn that is several weeks past full colonization is still ok to use. Its fine to go ahead and hydrate the substrate further as you did.

Some people say that bacteria will set in after a month or so but it hasnt happened to me yet

but probably more of a concern is this:
the spawn wouldn't be fresh.. you've handled
it some, and it's been exposed to plenty of nasties..
if you break it up and introduce new stuff
for it to colonize, mold spores and stuff that've
landed on it may take over on the straw.
the risk of contam would be significantly higher, probably.
