will myc growth slow down if you take the jars out to check on them say... twice a day? once in the morning and once at night?

There's no reason to check them twice a day, or even once a day. It's just risking contamination. You probably won't contaminate them, but why even take the risk? I doubt it'd be any noticeable difference if you choose to check on them, but you could just check on them by looking at them in the incubator, you don't have to touch the jars.

It is an interesting process, but you won't notice any difference in your jar's growth if you check it so often. When I say just look, I mean take off the lid to your incubator and look down into it. If the incubator is only 12-18 inches deep, you should be able to see the sides of the jars without having to touch them.

Best thing to do IMO is try forgetting the jars while
incubating... :biggrin: I know it's somehow difficult, but
as MMerletto is sayin', you'll just improve the risks
for a contamination :thumbdown:

I say check em as much as you want if it seems fun to you.  don't worry about anything.

Someday, when you'll be inoculating your 350th jar, you won't feel the need to check em more than once a week. :wink:
