Worried about going away over Xmas.
    #1159392 - 12/21/02 04:23 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Hi guys, hope you're all having a contam-free Xmas so far :smile:  Anyway, I'll be going away for a few days to stay with my family, and I'm worried about the effect this will have on my grow.

I've got 3 cakes in poor mans terrariums at the minute, and two casings which are gonna be birthed into an aquarium later today, with a tiny little bit of bleach in the perlite to help sterilise it (Can't get out to get peroxide as I have a broken leg).  I'm worried that everything will contam if it doesn't get fanned for a few days, what is your opinion on this?  Is there anything I can do to stop my cakes and casings rotting?  Should I add a little bit of bleach to all my perlite?

Last week I went to my sisters for 3 or 4 days, and when I got back my PR cake had fucking flies crawling on it.  I attribute this to the lack of fanning,,,presumably stagnant air will cause contams.  Am I right in this assumption?

the best would be to leave your stuff to a friend who could do this job responsible

Unfortunately that's not possible, as my friends have kids etc.

I'm wondering how long I could go away for before everything starts to contam. When I was away at my sisters for 3 or 4 days last week, as I say, I came back and found one of my cakes had flies crawling over it. However, the other cakes were fine, and had actually grown really well, with some massive shrooms (which clued me in to the fact that I had my humidity too high).

I could possibly transport a couple of the cakes to my sisters house, but I'm worried about the casing. Also, I'll be using the saran warp tek for one of my casings as I'm out of aquarium space. I believe that one will be fine, as there will be air flow.

The top of my aquariam has a big hole in it which I cover with saran wrap. Could I poke some small holes in there to get air exchange going while I'm gone, or would that be an open invitation to contams?

You can put the casings in a bag and in a fridge for several weeks (even months...)
