whats up? hey i need some advice please
    #1727697 - 07/18/03 03:10 PM (17 years, 7 months ago)

ok i have high grade vermiculture, high grade brown rice flower, and myco bags.

i mixed 1/4 brf + 1/2 Verm. with 4 tbl spoons water. nice and moist.

i then put the mixture into a zip lock bag. i then put the zip lock bag into a pot of boiling water for 5 min. put the mixture into a myco bag. i then boiled the mix in the myco bag for 5 min. put in a sterile area and am awaiting spores.

now will this work for sterilsation?

ive got no pc, or jars. and moneys tight.

if this wont work please help this poor man with a way i can do it without them. thanks greatly.

You're supposed to boil the jars for a good hour for sterilization so I'd be a bit worried about a a quick 5 minute boil. Maybe you could sterilize the substrate by using the microwave. I've done this with my casing and had no problems with contams, but I don't know if it'd work with substrate. I see no reason as to why it wouldn't.

I have considered such matters.

5 mins boiling is not enough there is a tek out there that tell you how to boil for a hour or so then the next day do it again i think it's calls multi stage boiling/strilize and i really don't think it would work that great and i asked the guy who made the tek up and he said he won't buy a PC because they are too much money and that he uses that tek all the time and never had any contams with it.I looked for the tek for you but i couldn't find it sorry.but you have to becaefull when trying to strilize substrate with out a PC that you don't get contams and like Smoker for peace said there is a microwave tek out there to you can use so i would try to find them so you get thr steps and times right before trying them.

good luck

A pc is your best and cheapest bet for sterilization of substrate.
You just gonna have to save that money and buy one.

Boil the jars in a covered pot with little water for 90 minutes.

dued go to wal-mart and where they keep all the canning jars they have some canners that are really cheap 12 dollars to be exact.this is what i use to sterlize my 1\2 pint jars. turn water to boil set what you need sterlized in there don't fill water too high! don't let whatever your sterlizing float. cover turn down to lowest setting on your stove leave for an hour. one thing ive learned about this hobby is nothing can be done quickly! you have to have patience and knowledge to get anywhere. and with the myco bags screw them if there not already pre sterlized save them for when you do get a pc. go get you some jars. faster more reliable !!!!just follow the link above me the better pf tek.
