Looks like your off to a great start.  Studying beforehand was the best way to start off.  Now hopeful you already have a grasp on the basics of how they grow, and what it entails.

You said you received your spores from 2 different site vendors, I'm only familiar with s.o.s as the site vendor. May I ask  what the other site was and who referred you to them?  Was it a 'ology  member?

SOS is the only sponsor of this site, promoting any other spore vendor is not allowed. It's one of the few rules here. Thanks.

That's who I used.  I got GT and Albino Penis Envy from them.  I said that wrong in the first post.   Two different types of spore syringes from the sponsors of this site.  Would have doubled the cost of my order in shipping charges alone ordering from two different vendors and I'm a broke ass college student as it is.

Hey great job man!! I started last month, got tons of help from this site as well.. 6 of my jars are fruiting, I’ve got a bunch of threads on here. Just keep doin what you’re doing, and if you wanna get into any new methods this site is the most helpful one.. by the way, your verm layer dropping down is totally normal from what I can tell, the whole cake shrinks considerably inside the jar and at this point I’m convinced you can’t avoid it. Sending good vibes.

That's why I was asking, I wanted clarification and to be sure new members are not promoting or being led astray.:fluffy:

I know it's been kind of quick but I birthed 4 of my cakes today.  The 4 that seemed to colonize the fastest.  I did this because one of them started pinning and I had noticed that the colonization worked from the outside in on all four of these jars.  Basically the very middle in the bottom covered up about 4 maybe 5 days ago.  The first cake was beautiful.  The second as I started getting the dry verm layer off I saw green.  there was about a quarter sized "green mold" I'm guessing at the top of the cake.  I moved it away and broke it open out of curiosity.  The colonization was complete all the way through this cake found it's way into the ditch.  The 3rd and 4th cakes looked great though.  So I dunked 3 out of 4 and still have two that took the longest to colonize sitting for at least a couple more days in the incubator.  I built my Fruiting Chamber and I'm ready to case tomorrow.  I'll take pics tomorrow of the process and will upload them then or this weekend some time.  

One other thing.  I was so surprised to smell that lovely mushroom smell when I birthed my jars.  I wasn't expecting that until the fruiting phase.  It's so pleasant to find something so familiar when doing something new.

      Hi I’ve recently just joined and I’m looking to start up growing some golden teachers I’m first off getting the grow kits but they seem abit to simple so after that I want to move on to something abit more complex and I just had a question, can you innoculate steralised grain bags and use a expandable twin chamber mushroom growing system? I understand they come with jars but I hear that it’s easy to contaminate and you don’t get a good enough yield so I was hoping to find a way to you the sterilised grain bags and to use the twin chamber but I’m unsure on how this could work and I can’t see anything on YouTube about it

      Oh awsome man! This has to be one of the coolest mushrooms I've ever seen out of a pot. Looks so yellow and fake I thought someone was playing a joke on me.
