Hey so this is my first time. It's been 22 days since inoculation. I have 7 jars, 5 of them are colonizing.  1 jar is almost done but seems the others are far behind. Please give me any feedback, excited to learn new things. Here are pics of the jars. How do they look?

Those are looking great, good job on your first try!

Have you started putting together a fruiting chamber yet? While you’re waiting for the jars to finish colonizing it’s the perfect time to get the next steps figured out.

I havnt started making it yet, but have my plans figured out already. I will need to get started soon because I think within a week that the first jar will be ready.

Once the jar is fully colonized (at least as it looks from the outside of the jar) let it sit another week before putting into fruiting condition. It may take longer to colonize all the way through to the center of the cake. Sometimes it’ll start pinning while still in the jar...at that point you can go ahead and move to the next steps.

on my first couple BRF cake grows I tried a SGFC, but never really worked well for me. In the end I set up a tub with wet perlite in the bottom, then drilled FAE holes with polyfill just like you would do for a monotub.

The picture of the first jar is almost completely covered now. There are a couple of areas that look differnt.  I'M posting 2 pictures of what I'm talking about. Does this look ok?

Yes.   As mycelium grows it produces metabolites which is the yellow you see.   It also sometimes will grow little pins, or other forms as the mycelium matures before starting to fruit.    What you will see will be cool.   They look good.   Got a ways to go though.

So one of my cakes are ready and it's in the sgfc. Can anyone tell me if coloring is normal?

How difficult was it to remove from the jar? It looks a little bruised or possibly dry. It may be difficult but I would try to keep rH high between your evaporative fannings.

That's what I was thinking, it wasn't to hard to get out, had to tap and shake it some . Also I did dunk it for 24hours it's been about 3 days since then. I've been misting the walls and the lid and perlite 4-5 times a day. Should I be misting the cake aswell?

Looks like bruising to me. If it was contamination, you will generally  see the tam change quickly too.

are you gonna roll your following cakes in vermiculite after the dunk?

No I didn't roll this one, but when the others get ready I plan to roll them, just wanted to experiment to see which way works best, there's alot of mixed opinions lol

Is this normal? I don't see any pins yet, but the myc seems to be getting thicker? And growing some on the foil

You really should have some vermiculite between the foil and the cake to provide drainage and some holes in the foil.   I use one of my jar rings as a mold and wrap heavy duty aluminum foil around it for a base, poke 4 holes in it. and fill it with verm.  As your other cakes mature you might consider adding a drainage layer and coating the cake in verm to help hold the moisture in the cake after misting to prevent them from drying out.

Do you have light from the top? Mush grow towards light and fresh air.

They still look healthy

They are in a room which has natural light,  the sgfc is clear other than the top that is a solid white color

It sounds like they're doing exactly what they're supposed to do. Grow towards light and fresh air

I just went to mist and noticed one had a different color. So I went ahead and picked it. Is this  bad?

      I've got mine fruiting next to my GTs hopefully they come just as beautiful!! How long did it take you to see pins on the albino? I've had mine in fruiting conditions for 3 days got some hyphal knots going but no pins yet! Good job on yours! You are now the object of my envy haha
    • Tigerlily
      Hmmm... that makes sense. Wishful thinking I guess lol
    • Mush Zombie
      No. By breeding homozygous penis envy x homozygous penis envy would result in 100% homozygous penis envy. By breeding homozygous penis envy x  anything else would result in 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% anything else, as long as anything else was dominant. If it was homozygous co-dominant or homozygous recessive then it would be 100% heterozygous penis envy and 100% heterozygous anything else. You would not see the mutation again until you produce more homozygous penis envy. Breeding them back to each other to strengthen it is not a real thing in genetics. 
    • Tigerlily
      See? I was thinking the same thing. If you could somehow breed or grow the genetics back to each other to where they both have it then take a baby from them wouldnt it no longer be recessive in the offspring? It should by logic strengthen it and cause it to become common. Then couldn't you take that gene and make it stronger until it becomes dominant?
    • Mush Zombie
      Any homozygous mutation is still a mutation. I’m not sure how to answer your second question.
