This is my first time cultivating mushrooms. I think I have almost everything for the basic PF tek, but i'm not in the best of circumstances for sterility. I got some store brand disinfectant spray; will this do for air born as well as table top use? Can i use a hotpot instead of a regular pot to boil the cans in? And finally, can i get Vermiculite at KMart or Walmart or some store like that?:mushroom2:

Yes, but you should get some alcohol and bleach too for disinfecting.

I don't know what a hotpot is.

And it depends. Some have it some don't... If you don't want to waste time guessing, go to a garden shop/nursery and they will definately have it plus many other things you can use. Plus it's better for your local economy.

Regarding the hotpot... No idea what it is. If it gets the jars at a higher temperture though then that would be the better way to go. The main reason why people use pressure cookers is because the steem is presurized in the pot making the temperature raise beond the normal boiling point temp. So whatever gets the jars hotter, do.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.

the only time you really have to worry about sterility is during the injection process. but really dont sweat it. flame the needle tip, let it cool and inject the jars quickly, the less time the needle is in the open air the better. i never rub an alchohol swab over the needle after injection and never had problems. do it in still air to. im not big on sterillity when it comes to cubensis, they always take car of themselfs. im also not affraid to touch the cakes with my bare hands, most people think the pf cake will spontaniously explode if you do, but i still have all my fingers.

A hotpot is basically a little mini oven type thing that you put water into and it boils it. But I went out today and got a big pot to put all the jars into, so nevermind on that question. But thanks guys, good info. :mushroom2:
