All of this is incredibly great and very mindful and thought out. Really fantastic and right on track. We don?t really have any other suggestions, you?ve pretty much covered it in your plan for what to do- and it looks great!
As for alerts, many mushrooms are fragile- you know this- so just be mindful of that! They will respond differently than your dried samples 🙂
If you get into Downtown SF at the Ferry Building our friends at Far West Fungi I know just brought in some beautiful boletus- so it depends what you are working on for odor, but start having her practice with real mushrooms if you can and you?ll find out pretty quick what works and what doesn?t.
