Thnx for previous help, but i have a question
    #1873042 - 09/02/03 02:14 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

My iguana wantd to thank all the people in this forum that has helped her out in the past. she has a question that needs an answer. Her first grows have been successful But as her cakes were dying and she was tossing them, they became contamed. She put her grow set up out in the barn for storage. She has pulled it back out, and is planning on doing a good bleach assisted cleaning. When she grew previously, she used air stones in quart jars full of water and H2O2 for humidity. She is wondering if it is possible to use a solution of bleach water instead of peroxide water in said quart jar foggers? If so what would the proportions be? I was thinking that maybe the chlorine would be attached to some of the water molecules and could harm the mycelium or mushrooms. Then again, the concetration could be so low that it wouldn't matter. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, BTW she is using 4 inches perlite and 2 inches water for main humidity. She also would like to stick to her old grow method as far as grow chamber, because it worked! :smile:

you dont need 4 inches of perlite. try 1 and a half inch perlite and half inch water. it wont contaminate as easy. you dont want standing water on bottom just make sure top layer of perlite is wet.

My perlite is just fine. she is only interested in the effects of bleach on the developing mycelium, primordia, and mushrooms. thanks for trying to help, but my iguana says she has tried lower perlite levels and she has the combo that works for her desired results. your climate may vary.

BTW, the contams came from squeezing 4-6 flushes from a cake, via straw resivoir tek, dunk tek, double end case tek, not from standing water. as you know aging mycelium does not have the strength to fight contams.

I don't think the bleach would pose a big problem, a lot of growers utilize a bleach dunk tek for cakes and that's direct contact with diluted bleach. Search the forum for the bleach dunk tek and use those proportions, I suppose you can use hydrogen peroxide as well.
