yes you can keep the LC at room temp but you dont want to store it there for more than a month or 2 IMO. After a month of being in an incubator or at room temp i always put them in the fridge. Putting your lc's in the fridge for long time storage is the best way, it slows the the growth of MYC so it wont use up the nutrients as fast as it would at room or any other temp :D

While the above suggestions are correct and accurate, I can tell you that I've maintained liquid cultures for over a year at room temperature, and even exposed to light. In my experience then, they are often seen to form a 'mat' of mycellium over the top of the liquid culture, and are even known to fruit (cubensis, shiitake, oyster, lions mane, etc.), but are solid and good.I would also HIGHLY suggest that you use honey as the sugar source as the growth is always better than with Karo Syrup, even with nutrient yeast addition.

      Peeked again today.   3 of the 10 Corumba jars appear to be 100% colonized or real close and may be ready for the fruiting chamber in 7-10 days.   4 of them have some, a failed to pack area, near the glass side and I am assuming that was due to me not wanting to pack them to tight while loading them.   The one I missed a noc point on is the farthest behind obviously and I'm hoping it doesn't stall out before fully colonizing.   The A+ are coming along slowly.   No signs of tam.   Next Sunday I'll know more at the 3 week point.   So far so good.

      Only one way to find out for sure.   Mix it with a good substrate and see if it colonizes cleanly.   If so case it and put it into fruiting conditions.

      Yum, the bottom looks like it's full of bacteria hence the gooey looking grains, and if it takes 2 months to get to that weak looking myc then something is wrong. With GT it should look more like a big cotton ball.

      It looks ok to me. I would proceed to the next step of your tek. I assume you're going to mix with a bulk substrate.

      So I bought two grain spawn bags (from shroom supply). They took forever to grew the mycelium (almost two months). The first one was very weird so I just threw it away (sadly). The Second one is weird so I'm not sure if I should proceed with it.    There's white all over it but it doesn't look like mycelium but it doesn't look like mold either.    Can you guys help me please?
