Come ALL and criticize my growing chest before i use it
    #1401201 - 03/22/03 06:47 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

hello
i couldnt sleep waiting for my spore print to come so i built my terraium and icubator and the chest to stash it in. i want all comments good and bad about it so i know what i should fix before i use it.

well here it is



to the unknown eye its a regluar closet with a chest in it





but open it up and find a plastic tray for some casing a strafome cooler trimmed to fit with 6 pint jars in it with a heating pad inside to keep them heated right...still dont kno if i should put the pad on 1 ... 2 ... or 3?..but thats what ur for....i could also use this cooler to birth a cake to have some casing and cake split it up so hopefully something works... then i have the black light up top being held in by nails and some good old electric tape.....





last but not least a hole in the side so the electric cables can come out...

so please hit me up with all the comments bad or good on what i should do to improve this...

also how many syringes can i make from a print from the hawks eye


thanks alot...

Just get yourself an aquarium thermometer and see how high the temp gets after about a day - if you get around 82-86 degrees, you're on it. Start with lower temps - as long as it doesn't get very cold, it's better to just have it not quite warm enough than have it overheat and kill your babies.

Looks good, though.

no room for a aquarium heater plus no more money...the aquarium heater would get messy and it all has to be conceled in that chest

So your incubater and fruiting chamber share the same air space?

You should go back and read through the FAQ again.You will see that not one of the teks advise a incubater/fruiting chamber combo.The contamination problems will drive you insane.You dont want to waste good spores if your broke.Go with the teks that are here.After you learn all the basics then you can try to build your own.Remember that there is nothing new under the sun.

Your previous post was a bit unclear. :confused: Try not to be rude, and aim for specifics. Every part matters. The responses you get largely depend on attitude and how much info your getting.

Regardless, if the temp's ok you should be alright. Since your not incubating jars while trying to fruit you should be ok.

Few question, whats the material on the inside of the chest? I know your not fruiting it directly on the bottom, but on trays. The type of material and how sterile it is could lead to contamination. Also, any ideas on how your going to do air exchange? Just hand fan?

If you plan on using the trunk to case in how will u maintain humidity, tempratures, and contamination? The press board on the top of your container 'trunk' will soak up moisture and retain it...leaving a huge risk on contams.It would really suck to get a cake(s) going only to lose it in the fruiting process. :mad:

A wooden lined trunk is a bad idea!! Moisture and wood could lead to contams.

stay kool!

my friend eric  :laugh: ('flat') looked at your pics and read your story. he remembered encountering the same thrills and fears the first time he tried.
this is what he said: > > > > > > > > > > > >


"i'd suggest dumping the heating pad, and seeing what the temps are at various times in the day - the overall range. if it's always in the 70s, i'd just leave out a heat source altogether. slower, but less chance of failure and much safer electric-wise.

i'd suggest replacing the black light (said to do funny things to mycelium) and replace it with a cheap ($3) string of christmas lights, taped to the roof of your fruiting chamber.

i agree with others here, that you don't have a viable fruiting chamber yet. better to grow some jars to 100%, and think about the design while they're growing. what could you do? you could use the space around the styro to store your colonising jars for the next batch.  let's hear your ideas for preparing the styro-terrarium ?"


eric enjoyed writing that down (he just smoked some rather strong herbs  :grin: ) and hopes he helped.

:tongue:shirl

duct tape is not water proof. You might be able to coat it with a layer of polyeurothane.

Officer Jurk had a eriely simuliar setup when he started and it didnt bring much success heating pad neads to be replaced with an aquarium heater thats the main thing that needs to be done, also all your jars dont finish at the same time ever.

Mr. Jurk told me the following:
"
Oh yea and your question with the syringes, If used conservitaly you can make 10-15 syringes from one print, I like to make a 'vile' of sporewater, I use a 4 ounce jar with sterilized water, with sterile hands rub the print togather when its folded in half to break all the spores free of the paper and drop them off the paper into the water a small hole is on the top of the jar to poke the syringe through and suck up water into a sterilized syringe, shaking the water back and forth of course to disturb spores, a small not very dark print will even be sufficient, the jar can be stored and syringes filled when nessecary, the jar is labelled, you can get 10-15 syringes from a 4 ounce jar although i have never realy counted"

Yes heatpads are generally a bad idea... Duct tape would just be a mess.
