pfcake half colinized
    #1160057 - 12/21/02 12:14 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

well it has been a month and a half since innoculating 8 pf 1/2pint jars B+(SporeLab).
Sterilized in a pot with boiling water(2 hours, thinking it may have been to long now) and left overnight before innoculating.
Now I through 3 jars out , had no growth at all, birthed 2 a couple days ago, still have 3 left (2 at 80-95% colonized, 1 at 50%) The 50% one has shown no more growth in quite awhile?? I have been useing a icubator keeping it at around 80 (fish tank heater in a glass pitcher of water in a rubbermaid type contaner)
Should I just turf the 50% one or could something be done with it?
Also when useing H2O2 does it have to be food grade or just the regular stuff?
and one last newbie question, when misting fruiting chamber, can one use regular tap water or should it be boiled first or bottled water?

sounds like it dried out.

what's food lab grade? 100%? Well that's like acid, and will kill everything. Just your regular 3% solution from any old store works. But even that is too high of a concentration.

You can use any of them, but you should at least mix it with 1 part peroxide, 10 parts water, or 1 part water, like 100 parts bleach.
