1. well you are talking about a mycodome or something to that effect. well you have to have humidity and light both for growth but yes these conditions can be great for molds/bacteria to grow as well. once your myc has established itself during colonization it somewhat becomes resistant to contamination.

2. here are a couple of good reads on that subject:

3. cakes don't give super yields but you can learn alot about the cycles of life for the myc by doing cakes. teks for maximum yields are going to be bulk substrates like compost or h poo. i would suggest going with the pf cakes and see how things go with colonization. after that you can try your hand at fruiting some cakes and/or spawning some to a bulk substrate and casing and/or just crumbling some cakes and casing them. there are so many options for you, read read read and then decide what would be best under your current situation.

best of luck

May the force be with you.            Just do all the reading you can on the subject. I had to give up weed growing when I moved into an Apt.

Buy some good spores from one of the sponsers of this web site.

if you want big yeilds you'll have to start reading the death out of bulk grow teks and spawning. growing cakes is the best way to begin growing to understand how it works and grows.

I would also recommend starting with cakes just to get a feel of how everything works, then moving on to casing for higher yields. Just my two cents.
