Newbie Questions...
    #1838899 - 08/21/03 11:11 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I am having difficulty finding answers to a couple of questions.

1. What do hepa filters run for? I mean the actual filter itself. I want to attatch it to a fan blowing into a glovebox. Where can I buy these filters?

2. If I am using casing, can I still use perlite to distribute moisture? Would I just put the casing on top of it? Would the perlite last through all of the flushes?

3. Can I transfer mycellium from pf tek cakes to a liquid culture assuming I have that glovebox built? How would I go about doing that exactly?

4. I am using plastic jars and the verm/BRF shrunk away from the sides. Some sort of white crap is appearing on the OUTSIDE of the jars, but it comes when I rub it with my finger. Its pretty annoying and making it hard to tell if there is mycellium or not. Did anyone ever have this problem or know what this stuff is? Should I use glass jars next time?

Thanks a lot in advance, and I tried the search already..

Hepa-Target $19.99

Perlite-Do you mean for humidity in your terrarium? Casings don't require as high humidity,(90%) as cakes(95%-100%) but you might need a little perlite to help keep the RH up.

I believe you can transfer myc from PF cakes but I don't know much about it.

White stuff growing on the outside??  :oogle:

1.) for what you want around 10-12 u.s.$
2.) use verm., perlite does the wrong thing with water
3.)yes....search for the teks
4.)is this condensation? plastic melting? no idea shrinking is understandable

Hepa filters range in cost from 20 or more depending on size and shape.. check your local hardware stores in the furnace filter sections.

don't use perline INSIDE the casing but on the bottom of your terrarium ie: outer rubbermaid container... you don't really need to do this however... waste of time and money.. simply mist the walls and such.

You could inject a pf cake with a sterile syringe of water scrape the inside of the cake with the needle suck back the water as much as possible, hopefully you don't clog the needle! use a big gauge... and inject more jars with that syringe... but good luck!!!!

The jars...?????? condensation? don't know.. got a pic?

How would I be able to use even a little bit of perlite (or verm) if the casing needs to be there? Do I just put the casing on top of it?

forget about it... truse me.. you don't need it! just put your casing inside the outer bin and mist the walls down... much easier to clean and nothing to throw away and contam!

edit: i'm refering to the perlite and verm question1....

wouldn't misting the walls create water droplets?

Isn't standing water in large droplets very prone to contamination?

water is water... as long as your container is clean.. there are no contams to be contaminating..!!

Clean the bin with lysol... rub it down with a clean paper towel.. spray it again and leave the lid loose for they lysol to evaporate.

then insert casing.. mist down walls .. place lid on loose again. and fan once a day!! twice if you have time!

Once a day? In my friends experience, he finds that it is important to fan at least 3 times a day, if not more for healthy mushies
