Contamination Growkits
    #11382431 - 11/04/09 11:25 AM (8 years, 20 days ago)

Hello fellow growers.
I have a question about grow-kits.
I took of the plastic bag yesterday and placed the 2 kits in a plastic box instead.
Before the box contained alot of aroma therapy oils and incenses.
I cleaned the box very solid and also swabbed it after with 70% alcohol solution.
And now when i open the box i can still smell the incense and oil that it contained before.
Would this moderate smell in someway affect the mushrooms ?  Should i go back to the plastic bags?
The reason why i placed it in the box is to get higher humidity and also to allow more space when they are growing.

Help please

The smell won't matter. Most of us aren't fans of the kits, it's better and cheaper to do it yourself.
But welcome and good luck!

Yeah i know but i bought these 3 kits for a total 40 Euros so i am very happy with my purchase :smile:
Also i had 1 grow in the past which resulted in many great experiences :laugh:
More opinions please? Just so i know that i am safe to grow in a smelly cherry box!

Unless the smell is a chemical that is harmful or you, or harmful to pets, it's not going to harm the mycelium.
It might be a problem if you shot the stuff into the bag- but just being in a smelly box is not a problem.

And three kits for 40 Euro is not bad!

No it is not i bet Vermiculite + Perlite would be moree expensive.
So as long as i have this great supplier i would go for the kits! would you do the same? :laugh:
Also i should mention that i own a company selling SmartDrugs so i cut out the middle hands and buying directly from the source.

to be fair, big bags of perlite and vermiculite are about 5euro each, brown rice flour  another 3euro or so.

Growkits are an expensive way to grow mushrooms....although for a fast small lot of mushrooms you cant really go wrong.

Certainly if you are planning on buying more kits, you should look into spending the money on pf tek  kit and grow yourself.

I would start to find my own ingredients locally and do it myself. Really no need to buy more kits, unless that really is the best way for your situation.
