 :mellow: The secret ingredient to the pftek success is patience. With the first inoc it's really difficult to let the spores do their thing in the dark. I've had good luck so far and it is a fairly forgiving protocol. Keep your hands clean and don't check on progress more than every 3-4 days during the mycelium growth stage. Good luck and take pics.

In the begining I was checking everyday for the progress and it was ok. Only if it's a couple of minutes 2-3. You should be okay for june, 2 months is enough if everything goes well.

good job. It can take a couple of weeks for the cakes to become completely colonized. It depends on temperatures. It's all listed in the tek. Pics when you think they are ready.
