HI, I will be growing mushies soon I am almost ready but I am wondering about having to expose cakes that are not finished colonizing to light

I have to check the cakes while the mycellnium(spelling?) grows
but light makes growth start
??????
will just the little bit of light of me looking at them cause them to grow early?


and should I use and old dirty fish tank as a fruiting chamber as long as I wash it out with say... iso alc and water maybe soap?

I plan to grow about 12 cakes at the bottom of a tank using perlite for mosisture and a tray to keep the mushies above the perlite

Let it finish colonizing.

Mycelium.

That sounds fine. Put the cakes on a plate or something that will separate it from the perlite. Also add some H2O2 to the perlite to keep down the contams. Like 50/50 mix.

No
but don't expose them to too much light...try and keep them in the dark til you birth them.
just check them every so often....like every 2 or 3 days.
I know the tempation of looking....but you are better off not looking.

You should clean the old fish tank out with whatever it takes to clean it out nice....then use a bleachy water mix to kill off any contams that might be left.

good luck with your grow!

I agree with RoadKill
No, a little bit of light from checking on them will not cause pinning. Just check them like every 2-3 days. I noticed if you check on the jars too much it seems to slow colonization.

Also, you should be fine using an old fish tank as long as you sterilize it properly.
