    Well it's been 2 weeks today, so I'm about there. But it did take my cake a month before I even saw the first signs of mycelium growth and a month and a half total for full colonization. I am not a patient person so it feels like it's been forever. Haha

    can take between 10 and 14 Days, but theyll come. You dont need to have the airstone, but I guess it cant hurt either.

    I took out the airstone but now I'm a bit worried about my cake. Does it look ok? The bruising (or at least what I think is bruising) and the cracks are from when it took the hard tumble. Lots of pics but all just the one cake. A few I had to turn up the brightness bc it's so dark in the room. The indirect sunlight it gets isn't the best for pictures.

    Looks like bruising to me.
    From my view either way all you can do is wait right?

    I hate waiting. Lol. They've been in the SGFC for 15 days now. I really hope they fruit soon. If they do, will the bruising affect the potency?

    Hate to say it but this hobby is all about waiting until you have multiple projects all going at the same time.

    I can't say definitively on potency but I'm willing to say no, the genetics cover that.
