Cacti compatability
    #1618361 - 06/08/03 02:44 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

To germinate, San Pedro cacti seeds need high humidity levels (so it would be most convenient to bung them into my terrarium along with my cakes). Would putting a pot of cacti compost into my terrarium with fully colonized fruiting cakes pose a serious contamination risk?

Yes! I would try to keep a cactus out of my terrarium all time. Nasty bastards always try to get in. :smile:

Not if you sterilize everything in a PC first.  Well, except the seeds, of course.  :wink:

Theoretically you're absolutely right Sev. But I consider everything in a terrarium except shrooms (and perlite, and verm needed to grow them of course) a contamination risk.

If you want to do things right, use a seperate terrarium for shrooms and cacti. This needn't be expensive or a lot of work, a terrarium can consist of only a fairly large jar or plastic bottle with some wet perlite on the bottom.

Thanks, that sounds sensible. Your right of course, I'll just take another output from my humidifyer into a large plastic coke bottle. Cheers
