This is really strange. Last night my dog was talking in its sleep. Usually I'd just call in a priest to do an exorcism or something, but due to the context I considered posting it here incase anyone could help.

"I'm new to posting here and to begin I would like to say thank you. Though you have never answered a question I have posted before, I have done much lurking and found nearly all the answers I need, no matter how minute the detail or topic.

As of now I have, much to my disgust, innoculated two myco bags. These were used as I had some sort of huge fear I would get contams (never though about how even 60% of my jars being contamed would still leave me more then enough, nor how much verm and flour I could buy) and are now struggling along. To quit the useless talk I'll get down to the questions:

1. I am going to do the Karo Water tech, but am lacking a glove box. Is this a problem/any suggestions?

2. I have a sonic humidifier but will first try perlite. How damp should the perlite be/how do you tell when it is drying and when to spray (I have some as of now).

Also, I have never shroomed before. Recently I saw someone catching some flak for a number of things, one being he had never shroomed which seemed suspicious. My reasoning is that I prefer to have a place in the cultivation with something that seems as powerful as these. In addition I would prefer my friends and I stay healthy and not get amanita or cooking shrooms w/ acid."

Anyone have any idea what it was talking about? I know this really isn't the place for this stuff, but I don't want to get my dog being unjustly hassled due to its knowledge like fanaticus.

1. whatis the Karo water tek? link?

2. if you really want to use perlite go for a two inch depth with an inch of water, the "dry" perlite on top will wick up the water!
however I would have thought a sonic humidifier would have been better :confused:

I asked a friend and they said it was something like the honey tek.

Just nuke the room with lysol and work quickly yet don't make any sudden movements.

Have you ever tried PF Tek ?
Newbies should start with the basic stuff first.
BTW, this is the right place to make this kind of questions.

I didn't do the pf tek yet. Also I forgot to add I am planning on fruiting the myco bags in a 10 gal terrarium w/ the perlite.

As long as they are fully colonized and without contamination you're ok. Just work as sterile as you can and clean evereything you'll be using.
Use the perlite as referred before and fan 3-4 times a day.
You can cut the bag or transfer the mycelium to an aluminum pan, add a 50/50 top layer and place it inside the terrarium.
