If I want to grow a small quantity to eat & to learn more...
    #2188254 - 12/18/03 05:43 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

i need a:
-smaller less noticeable incubator
-incubator that doesnt have to be planted in an extremely sterile location(but a well cleaned room)

are there any types of incubators any of you know about that i could build that would help create a more sterile growing environment so that i would be able to grow these in my living space.. i wouldnt mind only doing like 4 cakes i just wanna learn and have some shrooms to eat, and its really hard right now because i am running short on places where i can do this.. if anyone can link me to any good teks for this or can just post a decent idea i would be very thankful.

thanks guys

what about a soft pack like six pack cooler with zipper? you could add a jar of hot water a few times a day?

they can be incubated in a box in the utility closet or your bedroom closet, you may want to consider a stealth terrarium, growbags are great for that and one bag can produce as much as 4 cakes

Are you looking for somthing to heat and incubate them at say 85 degrees? or are you just looking for somthing to store the jars in no matter what temp?

Maybe I misunderstood - incubator (where you put your jars/casings while they're colonizing) or terrarium (where you put your cakes/casings while you pray to the fungal gods?
If you're talking about a terrarium, are you trying to hide it? If not, the answer is simple. Just a rubbermaid or sterilite container. Many have had success with a few cakes and perlite - you don't have to build anything. Sounds like you just want to try it out without going to any great lengths and decide if you want to take it any further. If I'm wrong, lmk.

You don't really need an incubator at all, and you can fruit them in a cardboard box with a garbage bag liner. Drape another garbage bag on top of it to keep in moisture. A little perlite in the bottom might be a good idea.

Use the small white trash bags so some light can get through.

I incubated my jars in the box they came in with a heating pad set to low. I stuck a small thermometer in there and kept and eye on the temp and didnt let it get too high. I have also placed the box with the jars in it on top of my water heater.

If you are just incubating some PF teks, most will colonize at room temperature in about a month. Or maybe a little more (its winter)  :rolleyes: If you are getting a whole syringe, and only want a couple of jars, use extra spore solution. That should speed up colonization. :syringe: Not to much though, under 2 cc. Once syringes get opened from the vendor, they should be used up as soon as possible, dont save it, use it!  :stoned:

i used to fruit pint jars in one of those tiny buckets that have like patch concrete or cement in them. line the bottom with soaked perilite, keep it near some light, exchange air as often as possible, and dont expect large fruits. i also upgraded my bucket with a filter patch on the side... i swear it helped tremendously.


and if your too lazy for a bucket you can al ways fruit in vitro take of the lid of your jar and cover it with plastic wrap.

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."

they will still be fine,there is no reason whatsoever for using them straight away,store them in a cool dark place,they'll be good for atleast a year.
