Next steps???
    #25907982 - 03/31/19 04:27 PM (1 year, 10 months ago)

Thanks to all the help that I've gotten on this form (thank you ALL) so much, I'm now in the position of having 9 jars that I think are pretty much fully colonized.  I can't fully tell, because I think some of the dry verm layer has dripped down the sides of the jars making them look not fully colonized.  Does this happen?  Is that a thing?

I've read enough of the posts on this forum to now understand that there are many different ways to fruit and that this is a much-discussed topic.  I'm feeling overwhelmed with my options and could us a little direction.

I built a full-size SGFC because that was the first tek that I really read about and embraced.  I have perlite standing by, and I'm ready to go with that.  But then I read about the Humidity Chamber idea, and now I'm wondering if HC is a better way to go since I'm at work all day and can't mist the SGFC that often.

I have several smaller totes and coir on-hand, so I could try that, too.  I could put a few jars in each to see which works better for me.  Help!  I'm over-thinking it, I know.  Just don't want all these weeks of waiting on the colonization to be lost in a failed fruiting. 

Anyone have a strong push for me in one direction or the other?

Thanks again for all the help!

Sgfc literally was made for people who work 12 hour days. And might be gone 2-3 day stints at a time
The guy made it lived in the dry cold ass mountains of Washington state and worked 12+ hour days. It's made so you mist your cakes once or twice a day. It's less work than brushing your teeth

Cool!  I’ve read how much there is to learn doing the SGFC, so I’ll start there and see what I can do.  Thanks for the advice!

If you are doing BRF cakes, then a SGFC is just what you need.

Mist and fan in the morning

Mist and fan in the evening.

Good luck man.
