Hey, i know during incubation the jars are supposed to be kept in a dark place but just how much negative effect does light have on them during early periods of mycelium growth?. I have been inspecting them daily for contamination growth for less than 2 minutes. Btw, im using pf-tek in half pint jars in a tub in tub incubation method. Temp is at almost perfect 86 degrees but for some reason growth has only started on just one side of the jar on 3 of my 5 jars which i inoculated on all 4 sides.
Not my first grow either, but i have never had a fast colonization for some reason.

Daily checking really isn't going to be a problem. You'll realize this after a few grows, especially if you try invitro. It takes a whole lot of time for pinning to occur, and just occasional checking won't effect it at all. Don't worry about the growth, it's all in time bro. Good luck.

today was the first time i put my jars in a controlled climate. i bumped it up from the house temperature of 76-78 to 84-86. How much of an influence does the temperature have on the colonization speed of the jars?
