Warnings and tips!
    #1631201 - 06/13/03 01:35 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Things a new guy should be aware of before starting this hobby!:

1- when you spray lysol in your glove box, don't light any flame until the alcohol evaporates.. you will burn yourself badly!

2- Know your pressure cooker.. and how to use it properly!

3- You canot be too clean in this hobby! just more clean.

4- Javex will ruin clothes and make red turn pink.. wear white clothes.

I'd like to add that you should remember that no matter how easy the Tek says something is, realize that you're going to have to adapt to your specific conditions before things will work properly. This board can only point you in a direction, you need to tailor solutions to fit your own needs sometimes.

When you cut hard plastic ie: bins, heat it up with a hair blower to prevent accidental knife cuts!!!

When you are ready to make a casing, crack the lids on your jars before you get going...

this way you don't end up with all the materials ready to go and have to fight with a fucking lid and contam everything!!!!

if lysol touches your mushrooms or your casings, you will have deformed fruits!
ie: rosecombs..

Cover your incubator with a heavy blanket to keep in the heat,,,saves on power and easier to maintain consistent temps.

general tips for construction of anything:

Use a soldering iron to cut plastic, it smokes and creates a little stench, but it's a lot more accurate than a knife. (if you don't have a jig saw)

Put a small nail in the tubetip in silicone or glue tubes to keep it open.

Lay out your tools and materials BEFORE doing anything.

Read the faqs again and again.  Also, read the grow logs to see different adaptations of the teks.  Write down what u plan to do first, especially if you blaze often :smirk:

If you feel that time is of the essence and you're not sure if you can do all stuff that you want, then leave it till later when you have the time if you can.

Respect your parents and/or the people you live with.

I.e. No extempore construntions in the middle of the night or with some people, No Illegal activity if this isn't something that all of you have agreed on.

Jesus fucking christ, the stories that I could tell of people who have no consideration to anyone else than themselves.
