How sensitive is bulk to contams like trich?
    #11263467 - 10/17/09 02:39 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

I just did a sucessful PFTek run with 6 cakes and was planning on doing more. The only thing to stop me from going to bulk set up (WBS to coir) is the fear of contams. I have a terrible trich problem where I live, it is a basement with rugs. Now I grow for fun and a hobby so I am not modifying my living quarters to eliminate or reduce the trich. (IE plastic the carpet, rip up the rugs ets) So please do not even suggest that.

My question is, during the substrate colonizing phase, how likely am I to get trich? I am going to try it as I have about 4 qt's of WBS goin right now but I am thinking of doing like 30 PFtek jars soon before the temps drop too low to grow so I have some for the winter.

well myc should be able for the most part hold its ground when colonizing the Sub we give it a helping hand by pasteurizing. If you know you have a trich infected place do all you can to clean it up make it hospitable for mushrooms. I would give it a shot and see how it goes

clean everything real good disinfectant spray is your friend.

no ones going to be able to tell you the probability of contams.. who knows... maybe maybe not.. your best bet is just get to work and be as clean as possible given your current situation.

I'll tell you what boy! My first mono just got trich yesterday. Did a couple things wrong. No thermo in sub so I know it wasn't pasturized correctly, Also sub was too wet. At dat 14 cobweb and trich took over. It's easy to over wet your sub. Gonna give another go but with a 1:2 ratio this time. GL

As your substrate flushes more and loses nutrients to produce fruits it will become weaker and weaker.  I've had cakes go 5 flushes before and just literally stop working and sit for weeks and not contam.  But monotubs for me always end up fruiting and fruiting anf fruiting andf eventually after the 3rd flush they contam and I gotta pick the remaining pins off and toss the rest.

the only reason I am sure I have tons of trich is no matter how i prepare the PF tek jars. If there is an exposed hole, even with a 1/2 inch verm barrier the shit gets trich. If I put tape over the holes after I am 100% fine.

Anywho, I am going to try it. I may try and clean up my room.

-Wash walls with 10% bleach
-Saturate rug in some type of cleaner (not sure yet) I can vacuum excess moisture out with my shopvac.
-Wipe/spray everything with disifectant like lysol or alcohol

Then I am put some pickling lime on my carpet or salt and grind it in. Maybe do this every so often as long as it doesnt stink my room up.
