quick questions
    #11357514 - 10/31/09 03:12 PM (8 years, 23 days ago)

my first question is, i have a few 1 pint cakes im am currently cold shocking waiting to birth into my mini 2 liter soda bottle terrariums, but the problem is all i have is vermiculite so i am going to use that as a bedding for the cakes, how much water should i mix in with the verm. to fruit the cakes, same as pf tek ration for the verm and water?

and my second question is, i just recently ordered some brazilian cubes from ralphsterspores, and a light malt extract lc jar from mycopath and was obv. planning on using liquid culture this time around, and read the description of the lc jar on mycopath, and it brings up an airport syringe, what is this? i will be manually agitating the jars a few times a day as i do not have magnetic stir bars

if you are growing p. cubensis then you shouldnt be cold shocking. there is no specific mixture if youre trying to use vermiculite for humidification. ive seen people do it but it is not ideal. i wouldnt use the same amount as pf tek..use less.

p. cubensis is tropical so cold is not recommended.
