Are you going to wait until all the spores have arrived to begin so they'll all be knocked up on the same day?

Yea I heard that 1cc was enough per jar, even though i used 3-4 per jar lmao.
And yea the syringes should be good, i've been told they can last a good 6 months in the fridge.
The longest I kept them in personally was a week. But i'm about to put one or two up for my next grow also.

are you using room temp to colonize? I dont know yet if I should use the incubator as there seems to be differing views

at first they were room temp, but then seeing how it was getting in the low 70s at night, we put them in a styrofoam cooler with the heating pad the kit came with wrapped around it. then the lid is halfway on to allow air exchange, but keep i heat at the same time. It stays about 75F in there

Hey guys, I have used this kit in the past, as my first time growing.  I agree it's decent for a first time grower, and yea I do make my own jars myself now and still use Midwest for the Rye bags, those I could not get right.  Every time I followed the instructions the bags exploded in my pressure cooker, I gave up.

I still use the Mega kit as my incubator and most of the stuff I got still works! Just toss the lights that come with it out, they would go through batteries in hours, I just use my room light and have had mushies galore.  Not sure why they even include them.

Obviously using a kit in general is the lazy mans thing but I'd recommend it for the money and their jars and bags are really good!

Good luck and happy shroomin!

I started using the incubator today since we're supposed to be getting a few nights of low temps.

@rkmate the incubator works fine for you? I put the jars in there, put the lid on, then put something on top of it.
It's got the heating pad underneath it with a thin blanket separating it from the tub. It stays about 76-80F in there.
Do you think I should open up the lid every know and then, or just leave it on for a few days until I want to check on them?

Hey, I'd recommend opening up the lid every few days to let some fresh air in. Although while still in the jars they don't need a lot of fresh air, proper gas exchange has been tested to help speed colonization.  But as far as temps you are right in the perfect ball park.  I like 78 as my ideal incubating temp.  Some people like it warmer but I've had my best success At 76-79

Also you can keep the foil on the jars but just loosely. 

Cheers

If I were you I would spend 15 bucks on a clear plastic tub drill holes on all sides 2 inches apart and fill with 4 inches of perlite. As this sgfc will give you far better results than the old outdated unnecisarily complicated humidifier and air pump system :thumbup:
