Vacations
    #11223498 - 10/10/09 11:47 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

If you plan on going on vacation or out of town for a week or so, how do you handle things?  For instance, over the week of thanksgiving if you were to be out of town do you just make sure nothing is colonizing/fruiting/whatever during that time?  Is there a point at which things could be stalled or "paused" during the whole growing cycle?

colonizing jars can be stalled just let them sit there even if they are fully colonized or you can toss them in the fridge..

Fridges, monotubs, jars, or more elaborate automated setups.

So letting a colonized jar just sit colonized is cool?  How long can they sit before stuff dies and is unusable?

And nobody I know has any idea how touchy this stuff is and how easy it is to fuck up.  I am quite certain they would be tempted to look, open, pick, poke, prod, you name it.  Not to mention I'm not telling anyone cuz word of mouth is a real bitch lol.

....and no, this is my only account (was that question directed at me?)

Well my master grain jars sit for 4-6 months before I end up using them and they still work.. So a vacation is not going to hurt them

It's just ironic that there is a user here, pftek, who asked pretty much the same question in the link I provided, not too long ago. And then a newer user, yourself(Pffff), is asking a strikingly similar question. You have to wonder...

Yeah, plenty of stuff can be left on the go while you're away.  Everyone's always stressing patience, sometimes what that means is that you get to leave for a bit while your project runs itself.

The only time you don't want to leave your project alone is when there are fruits growing, because normally they are full grow in a couple days and drop spores all over the damn place.  So if you do your tub or greenhouse or whatever will be blackened with spores.. Always a fun mess to clean up.

Oh...ok well no, it's just me lol.  I'm going out of state over Thanksgiving week.  I'm a complete noob at this, so I didn't want to start playing around when in 5-6 weeks I'll be unable to take care of things.  If jars can sit, I'm cool with that.  Being my first try, it would suck to have it go well and have to trash things.

Good advice from everyone though, thanks a million!

You know, I've been wondering about this.  What's the big deal with letting fruits sporulate? I've never found the mess to be un-managable.  But maybe I'm missing something.

It's not unmanageable, but just a pain in the ass some times.. It really sucks when your polyfill falls out and then your fan blows spores all over the fucking room !!!  LOADS OF FUN

Spores were everywhere. The rinse water was going down the drain as purple as Kool Aid.

That looks like the problem alright.  Hasn't really applied to me yet in any serious way given the setups I have used though.
