Questions about sterility and growing
    #1140688 - 12/14/02 11:29 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

1.  When steaming jars or what have you in a kitchen area, how sterilized does it have to be?  This kitchen has tons of cats walking through it, so what precautions should I take, or is it safe to say the kitchen is too contaminated already to sterilize effectively?

2.  Should I buy a new terrarium or will a used one work if it's cleaned well, and what would be the best (easiest) way to clean one?

3.  Once the environment is all prepared would it be safe to keep it hidden in a box of some sort or wrapped up in something so it cant be seen?

:tongue:

Just from my friends limited experience:

1.  The general area should be clean, possiably spray the room down with lysol if your worried. 

2.  My friend used a old rubbermaid storage conatiner, used for storage!  (imagine that) and cleaned it with bleach/water solution, then sprayed with lysol, worked like a charm  :laugh:

3.  Yes, and actually its recomended to keep the substrate jars, once incubated, out of light, and rotating air.

my monkey bleaches every thing! he likes clorox clean up works good. if u bleach your terraium it should be fine. make sure though that what ever you bleach rinse it off with water if it going to come in contact(terraium/jars/etc.) with mycilium. cuase it dont like bleach at all.

How do you prepare something like that?
I haven't really gone over the PF Tek too closely, but I would really like to know some effective alternatives to terrariums.
