Here is the "incubator" setup right now. You can see a portion of the CFL dome to the left.
It is an empty shelf of a cabinet in my office.

It will be several weeks (or months) before I see any protocorm development if it was a success. However, I am keeping an eye on the flasks for the first month since that is most likely when any signs of contamination would occur.

Hi, any further udaptes....
