Would it make sense to move the incubator out of the grow area? Though I use a solution of bleach and water in the bottom section I am sure many do not. I believe that the incubator is probably the least maintained item, which could be harboring quite a few contams just waiting to eat your cakes/casings. Possible???
And on another note, how many use wood shelving in their grow rooms? I ask because I am trying to rule out everything as to why I keep getting green in my shittake cultures. I am leaning on tossing the shelves out for metal ones very soon. My room is sealed nicely with plastic sheating, which the only opening is the doorway which gets sealed off with velcro and polyfill. I do have a large industrial HEPA on the way, which will help with airflow, but before I get that running, should I just empy out the room, toss the wood out, move the incubator, and nuke the room with a bleach/water mix? I can rule out that it is a pasteurization issue, because the fourth casing I left sealed in its bag, and it shows no contamination at all.
Thanks for your time reading this, and please share any comments.
