Need sharing and approval.

Yesterday I got home from work and took a look at my 4 little babies, which seemed to have been 100% colonized for a couple of days now but not exactly a week. To My surprise, one of my jar was showing primordia and the other 3 were starting to colonize the dry verm barrier on top. I decided it was time for them to go in the terrarium. Should I wait for a couple of days and if nothing happens dunk them? Also I posted yesterday regarding the hours of light needed in the terrarium and it seems no one can give me a straigth answer as to what is the best light/darkness timing to use, could someone help me out? I can't wait to get one of those smurf's house in my stomach.

They sound ready to birth deffinatelly.
as far as light goes for the first few days I`d suggest 6hrs or so to be sufficient to initiate fruiting.
After mushrooms begin to form, you can drop the light to as little as 1 hr or even less if necessary.

I've tended to keep my cakes and casing sitting out on my warm kitchen during the day meaning they get many hours of indirect light, but a recent thread showed that shrooms seem to grow faster with less light, so I might start warming up my cupboards!

That's the best answer I got yet, Muchos Gracias Derrayld. Quick question also. There is one of my cake that has a blueish spot on it, I know I shouln't worry about it because it as probably been bruised since I manipulated my jars alot but should I keep an eye on it? Is there more chance for contam to get a foot hold on that specific spot?

No bruising is just a sign of oxidation.
Contamination will set in anywhere it can get a foot-hold.
Don`t worry, but for safety reasons keep an eye on the spot.
Are you planning on casing or fruiting them as cakes??
I would suggest casing them or spawning them to a bulk substrate of dung/straw.
In my opinion bulk substrates are just as easy as casing except naturally for the extra steps.
Good Luck

do you have no way of organising some coir or verm??
I can tell you now if you work properly casings will be easier than cakes.

Like a mixture of soil and verm? I have no idea what coir is, it's like dog food or something?

same amount of room.
Just get some coir and verm, mix them 50/50 and hydrate the mixture so it is moist but not dripping.
Break up your cakes into marble sized pieces, lay them down evenly in a casing tray and cover with an 1" or so of the mixture.

Coir is coconut or palm husks, broken up and compacted into a brick.
just add water to hydrate it.
If you can`t find that try finding sphagnum moss or even Jiffy Mix if you are in the US.

You are the men for the job Derrayld, thanks for the advice. By the way I posted something regarding liquid growth Mycelium. Have you ever tried that?
