im Waiting for the growing process, want to see a fully develop mushroom and take a spore print.  keep a collection of strains for future projects, this is a very cool hobby i picked up from being curious about magic mushroom and how to identify them if I went out picking. I didnt want to take my chance and end up eating a poisonous mushroom and die, and didnt know you can grow this, always thought you had to go pick em out of cow shit...from what I was told before I did my research. 

when its fully colonized is it all white where I cant see the mix, or will it be a lil transparent?

With BRF most wait for a few pins to show before birthing.
100% colonization mycelium will be dominate.

You can dunk it.
You don't have to wait for any pins if you don't want to.
The pic was more to show what 100% colonization looks like.

so its not necessary to dunk it 24 hours? I thought you had to dunk it to create the shock for birthing and to rehydrate the cake.

I dunk mine for 12 hrs.

"I thought you had to dunk it to create the shock for birthing and to rehydrate the cake."

The purpose of dunking is to (re)hydrate the substrate.
Shocking is when people place them in the refrigarator while dunking and it's is not needed IMO.

Just dunk them for at least 12 hrs, then roll in verm and place in FC and await fruiting :)

Sterilizing the Verm. when rolling is unnecessary.

Hey I've got a question.  Once a jar is birthed, I know that I need to microwave some verm and then dunk the cakes for 12-24 hrs like Baph suggests, and then place them in my fruiting chamber w/ the damp perlite etc. My question is that once birthed do I simply not have to worry that much about my cakes getting contaminated?  I don't understand what keeps the cakes "clean" when we're washing, dunking, and handling these cakes. And also what keeps them "safe" when they are fruiting?

-thanks

All 4 are tasmanian strain, and the 1 jar behind the clock/temp is the hawaii strain.

Colonization spreading under the jars...so far so good

Hawaii strain and tasmanian strain...good mycelium.

keepin fingers cross I get a good harvest and no contams.
