To Use? or not to use? that is the question...(incubation chamber)
    #11170470 - 10/02/09 05:11 PM (8 years, 22 days ago)

So, Here is my dilemma. I am debating on whether to make an incubation chamber for the basic PF Tek cakes. I have read numerous places that making the double plastic totes and a submersible aquarium heater makes a nice incubation chamber and many people seem to use it. I was all up and for it, due to the many claims of it helping the mycelium colonize the jars faster. Then, I read in an old school mushroom growing guide that incubation chambers are not a good idea because the bacteria and molds that compete with the mycelium grow faster than the mycelium and will up the chances of contamination greatly.
Is safer to just let them colonize at room temp and just wait longer?

:pm: me if you have questions about lasers

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

I generally don't use an IC, but I think if you use sterile procedures when you prepare the jars you should eliminate a lot of contaminates. But if you can spare a few cakes then you may as well speed up the process.:tongue2:

i converted an old egg incubator to use for mycology and it is set at 78 deg F

it helps on my g2g ...i get 4 day col. times.

so its up to you and every one says the same as you about contam growing faster. for me i would like to see any contam asap so i can dump the jar and replace it. so the key is sterile tech if you got it then use a incubator.

put half of your jars in the IC and leave half out and see what happens
