Jars VS Aquariums
    #1094316 - 11/28/02 06:12 PM (15 years, 16 days ago)

In past years I'd tried to grow mushrooms using the aquarium method wherein I simply inoculated it and let it happen. I wasn't successfull as contamination occurred..

Now I've decided to try again and I see lots of people using glass jars to start things off-- what is the advantage of this over simply using the aquarium? It seems like much more work!

wow use the aquarium as your jar? i'd say that was a low spore to substrate amount. but with jars thats lowered so mycellium has a easier time running thru before contam does.

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

How can you sterilize the substrate inside an aquarium ?
How can you transfer sterilized substrate to an aquarium without contaminating ?

TYM, you innoculated or spawned?
i'm a little lost but if you meant the first then it's no wonder it contamed.
if you you meant the latter, i'd like to hear an account of your process(es), sub, spawn material, etc.
