First time grower!!!

I have a friend who is growing some South Africa Transkei (has anyone ever cultivated that strain before?) and wants some advice on it. His setup is pretty straitforeward, has an enclosed fruiting chamber, thats inside of another box.
The fruiting chamber is being warmed with a heating pad, with damp parlite proposed to be at the bottom of the chamber(just inoculated today). He is cultivating 5 jars, of which will be about 1 inch apart from each other in the chamber, with about an inch and a half away from the edges of the box.
there are no other additives to this, unless there is something that I forgot to mention.
The jars are 1/2 pint (i hear thats a popular size), and have 4 holes in the lids for innoc.
The inoculation procedure I hear was very rudementary, ghettofied everything except jars and syringe (used dagger to cut holes in the lids, and a small jar and peice of toilet paper as alchohol lamp. But he told me that he is pretty sure nothing bad happened, that it should be sterile for the spores to take hold undisturbed.

Can anyone give me any idea on the procedure? He is growing the South Africa Transkei strain, that strain I particularly want to know about because I've never heard of anyone growing it.

Your set up sounds fine for PF style cakes.

Are you going to use a heating pad for your incubator?
Look around at the posts that are talking about a TIT(tub in Tub) incubator.

You might also consider using a bubbler for better humidity and air exchange.

I have grown the South Africa Transkei strain...many times.

It's one of my favorites...and my friends like it very much.
They are always asking when I'm going to grow more African's.

This is a great strain...very potent.
I've seen people trip their mind on 2 to 3 dry grams of African's.
One guy was screaming for 4 hours and we couldn't shut his ass up.
Another guy layed on a couch and said "I'm so happy..I just wanna die".

Now you know why African's wear bones in their nose's!!!!

I see a problem with the setup youre talking about. The distance between cakes is only 1 inch. I cant imagine cakes have enough space to grow two cakes worth of mushrooms with only one inch. If i were you would give them a few more inches to grow out.
