Ok, my jars are nearing completion (and I'm getting more and more excited). I'm planning on growing invitro this time around for stealth reasons.
When they hit 100% should I drop the temp to initiate fruting, or is that not needed? They've gotten lots of light (I usually check them 2x a day). Do I really need a light bulb or anything in there? T hanks

By invitro I take it you're talking about leaving them in the 1/2 pints. As for temps you should drop them to around the mid 70's, the pins will start before you drop the temp but they will grow faster and the cakes will retain more moisture at a lower temp. As for light, indirect light will be fine, it only initiates pinning and guides the growth direction of the shrooms but yours will be crawling around the sides of the jar anyhow. Hope that helps. Keep us informed.

Vitro being latin for glass, thus "in glass"

But thank you for your response.
