Newbie Growing Questions (filter discs, colonization, etc).?
    #2456760 - 03/21/04 10:14 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

How do synthetic filter discs work? Can I leave them on while the jars are being sterilized in a pressure cooker? Can the lid be fully sealed if there is a filter disc present? Is tin foil necessary with the filter disc present?

How can you tell when the substrate being used is fully colonized and ready for fruiting?

If I were to use Drierite as my desiccant, would it be placed in the container with the fungi (touching it?)? How much should be used?

In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion.

scrap all those thoughts and keep it simple, lose the tops and use tin foil as the top. Once the cake it made put another 1/2 inch of vermaculite on the top (this helps prevent contam) then close it up with tin foil. Pressure cook these jars or simply boil them on a pot. Inoculate and then quickly put another layer of foil to cover the holes you made from the needle.
