Cleanliness During Spawning
    #11385642 - 11/04/09 06:46 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

*Yes I already tried searching*

This morning I just spawned my first monotub following the large_dose tek. Afterwards I noticed that monstermitches tek includes spraying oust in and around the tub before loading the substrate.

How crucial is this step? It seems like this would be a very vulnerable time to get contams. Of course, my substrate was fully pasteurized and my jars were at 100% and spawned at a 1:4 ratio.

Thanks

EC

As long as your work space is clean and your substrate is properly prepared not much can go wrong.

Contamination happens before you even spawn.

as long as you worked quickly and you yourself were clean and not coughing in your tub you should be good.:stoned:

Just try to be cleaner in the future. Every time you wipe / spray with disinfectants when necessary you'll have a greater chance of success.

Keep 'shroomin :mushroom2:

When you go to one of paul stamets' seminars, he builds a straw bulk substrate outdoors on an open table, and I don't remember ever seeing him wash his hands immediately prior.  They also nearly always fruit normally.  However, taking extra steps to be clean never hurts.  When I'm mixing up substrates, I usually run the flowhood.  It isn't 'necessary' but certainly doesn't hurt.
