grokits
    #1301392 - 02/12/03 04:34 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

hi guys
just got 2 grokits from kingbong. they look nicely colonized on the sides but havent broken through the verm barrier on top. the kits sat in the post office for about a week before i got hold of them.
i have currently taken off the plastic lids, and put 2 layers of tinfoil on top. i sprayed both the pieces of foil with a dilute bleach solution and poked holes in both layers of foil with a sharp penknife.
the kits are now in my incubator with my dungbag, the temps are 75-82 f, and the humidity is 90-100%.

do i need to patch the top of the kit with more verm or should i leave them? also, is it ok to spray the casing with dilute bleach solution? will it not kill the mycelia?
thanks
lk

Why not use h2o2 ie: Hydrogen peroxide!!! ???

You said that mycelium has not poped thru the surface yet.. so no need to patch.

Bleach can be used, but i'd stay away from it unless you are fighting a visible contam!!!

good luck1!

ps: why buy a kit!! all the info in the world is available on here anyways.
