Jars sterile, but what about terrarium?
    #2535480 - 04/07/04 04:04 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

There are an infinite number of posts and FAQ questions dedicated to sterilizing the jars, but what about the terrarium pre-fruiting? Once constructed, what should I do to sterilize the setup before putting the cakes in there (I have an ultrasonic humidifier running through pop bottles, so how should I sterilize the chamber, dripshield, and popbottles/tubing?) THanks board.

you do not (really) have to.

The idea behind this is that the colonized cakes or casings can fight off any contamination. I ussually spray it down with a h202 solution though.

One could always rub the terrarium and parts with a swab dampened with rubbing alcohol.  :whoa:

What about the tubing? Should I just dilute some hydrogen peroxide and run it through the bottles/tubing?

A terrarium can never be "sterile", but having it clean is certainly a good idea. A glug of hydrogen peroxide in your ultra sonic humidifier tank should do the trick (don't overdo it though). As long as your terrarium is clean (soap and water is fine, alchohol if you really want to overkill) the colonised substrate should fend for itself. One word of warning: disinfectants such as lysol should be kept away from your terrarium, or at least used very sparingly, as they can lead to mutations in your mushrooms (the mutations are harmless but annoying)
