Sweat and Contamination
    #1003784 - 10/29/02 06:53 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Hi, hope this hasn't been posted before but I searched and couldn't find anything on it. I live in an apartment and have my own room where i plan to grow for the first time. My roomate and I pretty much ignore each other so I'm not comfortable enough to grow in the living room or anything so my room is pretty much the only place I can grow. I also use an exercise bike in this room for about 45 minutes a day and by the time I'm done I'm sweaty as hell. After I'm done, I hang my clothes to dry in my closet and go shower. I also wipe down the bike with a diluted clorox spray. Ok, sorry for the long intro but here's the question. Do you think that me exercising in the same room puts me at a higher risk for contamination? Any thoughts on this would be appreciated, thanks.

You living in the same room increases the risk of contamination. Anything you bring into the room increases the risk of contamination. Just keep the shrooms in an area of low traffic and you should be fine. Also don't leave sweaty clothes laying around to harbor fungus and molds. Anything wet increases the risk. I had my appartment flood and since then I lose at least 20% of anything I try to grow. So just do more jars if you have a problem to increase your chances.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - C.S. Lewis
