I fixed the problem with the popcorn. I just needed to boil longer (1 hr) and used less popcorn and made sure they were split. The jars were colonized in 10 days .
ok, so I cased them with coir and vermiculite( pasteurized) last Monday almost a week ago. Here are some pictures. Out of 6 jars only one ran mycelium up through the soil and you can see the fingers of mycelium in the picture . The other jars the mycelium is not as aggressive. Still no contamination.
oh and one jar has tiny mushrooms growing three inches down .
I covered in foil to block light and i spritz the jars twice a day .
How long until mushrooms come out the top?
And I missing something ? Patience for sure lol
Days, if you see primordial then it won't be long
