This is a fan I use in my room. The blue circle is a UV light. I don't know how if it's available everywhere, but since I started using it I haven't had any Trich. I used to have a problem with my casings contaminating.



Another thing I've been doing is using paper pellets and transferring colonised popcorn to it. The paper pellets are kitty litter and prepared according to Rush Wayne's "10 minute no autoclave sawdust spawn". Cubies do grow on it. I use it to spawn poo. One half pint of popcorn goes a very long way.

The advantage of this is that the transfer can be done in the open air and I haven't had any contams yet. Growth is initally rather slow though, because of the peroxide.

Okay I've wondered this myself is it possible to grow mycelium on cadboard or some other lignin containing substance?

About the fan... For what pourpose is that fan sold for? Also, is the fan placed in relation to your growing chamber?

After the SARS scare there was a whole floof of air purifiers released. It sterilizes the are as it moves past the UV light. It's designed for bacteria and virusses, but apparantly also works for mold. Unfortunately the manual is in Chinese.

I put the fan between 2 open windows. Air is drawn into the room and also blown out.

Here are 2 pics of the kitty litter colonising. Not very clear though.
