Just how dangerous is rubbing alcohol to mushrooms?
    #24991027 - 02/13/18 12:40 PM (4 months, 3 days ago)

Hey all,

Lately I have been lightly spraying 70% isopropyl alcohol on the floor and various shelf spaces of my grow room, being careful as to keep it as far from my enclosed fruiting chambers as possible. The reason for doing this lately is because I have been allowing a cool mist humidifier to fog up the room overnight, and by morning there are little droplets (in other words, bacterial breeding grounds) that have collected on a couple of my shelves, which I promptly clean up.

I have included a few pictures to give an idea of the room I'm cultivating in, hopefully it provides better context. Please let me know if further detail is needed in order to sufficiently examine my predicament.

Thanks again, you guys. :smile:

You shouldn't need a humidifier when working with sgfc I think you are over thinking it brother.

Just stick to the mist bottle for now.

Thanks for the feedback you guys. I think I'll retire the humidifier for a bit.

Oh, one other thing - What about the 70% iso. alcohol spray? Dangerous to spray in proximity of the chambers, or not really?

I heard once that a bleach combination could potentially be safer but I have not heard enough about it to make the switch yet.

70% in proximity is fine, although there's no need to.

My grow roam used to reek of alcohol fumes whenever i would do a lot of work. Didn't seem to cause any problems.

Used to also wipe the lids of fruiting chambers down.

In fact we'd wipe down just about everything in that room once in a while.
