whatever works man...as long as you can keep the jars in the dark at around 86F mycelium should grow...the jars should retain enough moisture to sustain the mycelium...if you're worried about them drying out you could always tape up the holes...

The PF Tek...it's a piece of cake (the BRF kind :cool: )

The jars are in the light. You need them in darkness or they will pin in the jars, possibly prematurely. And if that light is too bright, it can actually harm the mycelium (like sunburn to humans) or inhibit germination completely. Put them in a dark container in that room instead of out in the open.

Some say to leave the tape off, and flip the jars upside down. I never did this when I used the PF tek and they colonized fine. I would leave the lids screwed on snug unless they stall. But it is said this helps also, but I always view it as more of a risk than a benefit. I suggest you try using poly-fill or Tyvek for your future experiments.

Yep. Sorry, I thought the picture was the actual picture of your setup. It will work fine.

As long as you keep the lids on the jars, they won't dry out. Seems to me you've got a good setup there. If the bulb ensures the right temperature, there's nothing wrong with it IMO. A bit of creativity doesn't hurt in this hobby :smile:

94F is a bit on the high side IMO. Try lowering it a bit by turning the big-ass bulb off for some time...
