"So I’m getting frustrated. I’ve spent time and money on the clay pots and soybeans etc. i asked a question last week with no reply. Has anyone out there had it where there was no fungi of any color on the meju block? Mine are so dry and I’ve had them in the heated box for 3 weeks. Do I just hang longer and put in the brine solution? Do I wet them and put in the heated box with straw to try and get fungi longer? How important is it to get noticeable fungi? I’d be grateful if you or someone who knows would reply to this."

"So I have let the Meju dry for the 6 weeks and I put them in the heated box with some straw.(wheat straw) After almost 10 days I have no fungus of any kind on the blocks. They smell good but no color. Is that ok? Do I use alfalfa hay or wheat straw as I have no rice straw? Thanks."

"Hello. I just hung the blocks after 3 days. I’m in Idaho the temperature at this time of year is 0 degrees up to about 35 degrees. Is it best to do all of this inside during winter? Once I put it into the brine doe it work if the temperature is cold? Thanks for the great food videos."
