Simple and easy way to reduce contams
    #2104158 - 11/14/03 01:30 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

A buddy of mine grew mushrooms many times and NEVER got any contams, and he grew 4 times with six jars each time. All he did was put his jars into a tupperware to colonize, simple as that , a lot of people leave their jars out in the middle of a room or in a cupboard, but if you kep them in a sterile tupperware the risk of contams is reduced significantly. Every other day or so you just let some fresh air in and spray a mist of lysol into the container. Currently, even with a rotting mouse corpse somewhere VERY near (can smell but can't find :wink:) his six jars are doing fine. hoped this helped some of you new to this hobby, peace.

I have mine in a tub-in-a-tub with a heater at 84F and a small container of water with 3 splashes of H2O2. No contams in all 12 jars and they are all fully colonized.
