Need advice on fruiting a bag o' white stuff
    #1453657 - 04/12/03 11:01 PM (14 years, 16 days ago)

So this chinchilla that I often talk about is at it again, and he told my friend to tell me to ask this question:

The chinchilla has several ziploc bags of WBS almost fully colonized.  He is going to add a casing layer on top of 60/40 coir/verm.  His question is how to go about doing this.  Should he:

1) leave the colonized substrate in the bag, cut the top of the bag off, and add a casing layer?  (He would then place the bag in an opaque container of some sort to keep pins from forming on the bottom) 

OR...

2) Take the whole colony out of the bag, place in a new opaque container with a bottom casing layer and then add a top casing layer too?

He is leaning towards option 1 because he feels there would be less risk of contams.  He just wonders if the flush would be better with option 2?  All suggestions are very welcome!  The chinchilla thanks you  :wink:

You don't have to worry about contams if it's all colonized.

Do #2!!!! My friend had no contam problems with a bottom casing layer. Just swipe the container and utensils down with alcohol, and nuke the casing material for 7 minutes.
