If I were you, I'd dunk in the fridge over night and birth them in a terrarium. Dunking/cold shocking is pretty standard practice. Do a basic run through this go round and try some of the other stuff, such as injecting, in the future if you wish.

Maybe.  It is the most common. Also arguably the easiest. With injecting you have to worry a bit more about contams. Its all about experience.  If I were you, since this is my first grow, I would use the scientific method... experiement! say you have 6 cakes of each strain. Dunk 2, Inject 2, and double end case 2.  This way you will gain valuable practice, not only that, you will descover which method works best for you ! There are always variables between mycologists, thus something that works well for one person doesn't always have the same results for others. Experiment, be careful, have fun!  :grin:

Sounds like an idea.. but i have 11 jars... 1 maz.. 3 mystery.. 3 EQ's. 2 GT and 2 PR... so since each strain will be different.. it wont be as easy for me to make observations of which are better methods.. thanks for the tips though.. i probably will experiment.. just don't wanna lose any cakes :smile:
