Wow ok first off I'd say go with the kit with SOME of your syringe not too much and follow the guidleines seen in the instructions and see what happens.
You dont wanna just throw away money.
You might succed in your growth but i wouldnt know ive never even looked at a kit before so i dont know what they come with or look like.
Make sure you hold onto at least 1 full syringe incase something goes wrong in the growing process.
And for keeping syringes just store them in say a ziplock bag in a safe place that wont freeze and they will be fine to use at a later date in time.

grow media sounds good to go to me for jars.
He would probably be better off doing casings then cakes cause cakes need high rh for fruiting unlike casings.
Casings pretty much give off the correct rh needed for them to fruit but a little added rh here and there never hurts.
So just leave the kit as is and case it.
But your friend might want to do what he wants and not what i would do.

just use two different chambers, one for colonizing the cakes and another for fruiting. Best colonization is at 86 degrees and fruiting is about ten degrees cooler, about 70-76. As far as using the media grow bag, just go to the grocery and buy brown rice. Put it in a coffee grinder and blender to make your own brf. Follow the PF tek, its the best for first timers.

go to wal mart or lowes if you have one and pick up some verm or go to a pet store and get bed a beast aka coco coir.all in all 8 bucks max.
take your colonized cakes and cold shock in fridge for 24 hours or less.
Break the cakes up in a 1 gallon ziplock bag place the broken cake pieces into you terrarium and then place your casing layer over top your cake pieces.
Dont forget to sterilize the casing layer before putting it on the cake pieces.

that kit is suggesting that a lysolled aquarium and some stuff in a bag is a sterile growing environment. i wouldn't trust it.

if you have a syringe of spores, put the stuff in jars, sterilise it, then inject the spores in there. far more sterile. then when it's all white, you have a cake. :thumbup: and you're halfway there.

step 1 - growing myc
step 2 - fruiting myc

If hes using perlite then know he shouldnt need a heater in a small terraruim.
Use the lids of the jars to place the cakes onto or just place them on the perlite but watch for shrooms growing into they will rot and cause contams.

Friend,

No offense, but you sound a bit hyper, which is somewhat out of tune with buying a grow kit and leaving it in the pantry for a year and a half.  :lol:

I'll just go ahead and assume it's the initial excitement of discovering The Shroomery.  :wink:

Here's my advice:
Follow the simple and sage offerings of Shirley Knott.
i.e. Use the substrate (grow media) that came with the kit, but do it ala PF Tek in jars.  Get a pressure cooker and sterilize these jars, then inoculate (inject) as described in the tek.

Decide if you can keep these jars warm enough (upper 70's to mid 80's) while they colonize, or whether you need to explore an incubator.

VVVV ...and Here's the hook VVVV

Now you're underway and have several weeks to relax and read and study and hang at the board and ask questions and take the occasional tranq and decide what your fruiting plan will be and what you will need next.

Slow down...breathe...find your happy place, bra.

Welcome to the board and good luck!!
