Dusty Grow Room/Attic
    #1420959 - 04/01/03 03:57 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Does all dust carry contams and pose a threat to mycelium? Someone has placed his incubation rubbermaids in the attic recently. He knows that fiberglass and cellulose insulation is treated with chemicals to make it uninhabitable by molds, but does the dust it kicks up still pose a threat to his jars? If not, he is considering birthing them in that same rubbermaid with added humidity teks and just letting them fend for themselves a little bit to minimize the amount of checkups and therefore insulation, on the substrates. Has anyone ever grown in an attic before?

well dude, this guy you speak of, is kinda in the same boat I am. In the aspect that we need each of our tanks to fit snuggly away where checkups can be minimal for whatever reason.

well dude, bob is kinda in the same boat I am. In the aspect that we need each of our tanks to fit snuggly away where checkups can be minimal for whatever reason.

My suggestion to bob is, to use sealable rubbermaid for his terrarium, and if new oxy and heat is a concern, just be creative, use an incubator type setup with a clear *SEAL TIGHT* lid and a couple fish tank bubblers, With his concern for dust, which does carry bacteria, its gonna be hard to check up on the progression of the mycelium without letting some of that fiberglass partical to get inside your terrarium or in the general atmosphere. Is there anychance you could like, make a little cubical with some black trash bags and some thumb tacs using the rafters? Make a little dust bearier, then bob might be able to go up there with a bottle of lysol, soak it down some, come back up with a face mask and do whatever needs to be done.

Since my terrarium isnt in a position to be played with much, I use an "auxilary" terririum. Its generally just a decent sized sterile rubbermaid container that can be light and air tight (air tight, very important) which i have been using to transport the materials to a more suitable environment to case, birth, dunk, what have you.... If you use a big enough auxilary tank, you can just kinda spray the atmosphere outside the rubbermaid, open it up and spray alittle, given your hands are clean and sterile (I reccomend using some Purell hand sanitizer), you can do alot of stuff safely in that little semi sterile atmosphere. Its worked for me.....

Back to the issue of bob's terrarium in the attic, Just using common sense, it wouldnt be too bad of an idea to spend a couple minutes setting up a little cubical for it to trive in, or some sort of isolation from the fiberglass and the insulation.

I dunno, dont listen to me, im stupid

HEPA Filter. Flowhoods. Keep those two words in mind if you need mad air exchange. Certain cirumstances make cultivation a little more expensive :\
