My Cleanroom setup (suggestions, puh-leeeeeze)

Howdy, you'uns.
Here is a description of my setup. Although I am not yet growing any fungus but that on my toes, I am a firm believer in pre-pre-preparation. I have a closet that is shaped kinda like this:
(This diagram won't work on the posting program)

I have lined the inside surfaces with utility-grade plastic (the kind used for the shell of greenhouses) and secured it with Duct-tape. But not before I liberally sprayed lysol over every square centimeter. I did this to make the room easily-sterilised.

Here are my materials:

2 Sterilite tubs (56 qts. each") for the fruiting chambers. Each can hold 8 cakes.

1 Rubbermaid tub (45 quart) for an incubation chamber.

2 heating pads

1 Daz cool-moisture humidifier (not sure if this will suffice)

36 1/2-pint widemouth ball jars

1 ungodly heaping of lids and seals

2 small casing containers (for after I have experience of if I feel lucky)

500 yds of excess greenhouse plastic (fruiting chamber covers, and maybe to apply small squares to the jars after innoculation to prevent contams)

1-5 screens for drying

2 bags vermiculite (8.8 liters each)

2 bags perlite (.8 liters each)

2 bags BRF (2 lbs each- roughly enough for27 jars each)

My closet setup as of now:

1: Sterilite containers (fruiting Chamber)
2: Rubbermaid Container (incubator)
3: cool-mist humidifier (for incubator and overall room humidity)
4: Heating Pad (insulated by a towel)
(I made a diagram, but it won't work, either)

I have a different room for drying. Hopefully, I will post some pictures of my operation soon.

Any tips and criticizms (constructive, of course) would be immensely appreciated.
If I'm going down the wrong road on any points of growing, please alert me.

You don't need to humidify the incubator or the room. Just
the fruiting chamber. Your humidifier may be enough to provide
proper humidity for and air exchange both terrariums. So, you
may not need the perlite until you decide to try casings.

Hope that helps, Good luck! :peace:
