my gro kit is in trouble! pls help!
    #1344406 - 03/01/03 07:18 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

hi everybody
i recently got 2 grkits from kingbong, a uk headshop. they were only colonised on the sides and not the top. i thought id let them colonise for a while so i put them in an incubator at about 72-82 f. i also took off the plastic lids and covered the casings with 2 layers of (disinfected) foil with holes to provide air circulation.

they are now half colonised on the top, but i am going away for 15 days in about a week. what do i do with the casings? is it ok if i put the plastic lids back on, wrap them in several layers of foil to make them light proof and put them in the fridge for 3 weeks>?
or should i let them incubate in the incubator for one more week and then put them in the fridge for 2 weeks?

will putting them in the fridge help at all to preserve them? and what happens if i leave them in the incubator for 3 wks, will the mycelia just colonise it all, and then die off due to lack of food?

pls help me out here... thanks guys
peace
lk

Longest I've tried it for is 3 days, so I too am unsure if this would have detrimental effects.

Perhaps find a friend you trust that you could give your house key to so that he/she could tend to your mycology, and also have few house parties?

No house parties?  Consider it a tax :wink:  :blush:

I'm sure there is at least 1 person you can trust, if he is lazy, motivate him with a little bit of $$$, or the fruits of yours and his labor :wink:
