First timer. Heres the plan, any suggestions?

Hey everybody. My friend decided recently to attempt to start cultivating mushrooms. He ordered two 10cc syringes of the PES Amazonian strain from sporeworks and his spores should arrive in several days. He will be using the magic mushroom growers guide (based on the PF tek) and implementing presterilization of substrate ingredients in the oven, top and bottom vermiculite layers in the jars, as well as a vermiculite resevoir in the center of the cakes to inject with sterile water during fruiting. He will be sterilizing his jars by covering with foil and boiling. He wants to take any precautions necessary to insure that minimal jars will be lost to contams, and would greatly appreciate any tips from experienced growers. Also, is bottled water necessarily sterile?

Thanks. Also, Is incubation of the jars while colonizing all that necessary?, if so, how would you recommend going about it. And what is your experience if any with the Amazonian strain?

make the poor mans pod....easier than you think, i just built mine....2 plastic shoe boxes (60 cents each) and a 100 watt submersable heater (20-30$)got my temps at a steady 84.3 my heater even came with suction cups...so i just pushed it in, filled with water and pluged it in. (you dont need a therm. either, the thermostat on the heater is good. just turn it up a few degrees above 85)
EDIT: sorry not the poor mans pod....its in the FAQs though....youll see it

yes incubating greatly increases your chances for success, go with what KuSsH said about the tek and reservoir (ditch it). The two verm layers are a very good idea, I started doing the verm layers a couple batches ago and noticed great imporvement with thorough colonization.
