My KISS Plan For The Summer...
    #2703513 - 05/20/04 12:10 AM (14 years, 6 days ago)

Hey fellow shroomers,
Here?s my Keep It Simple, Stupid plan for the summer, let me know what you think, possible problems, how to make it better, etc?
At first, I was looking into all these different additives, teks, strains etc?, but have decided that for my first major outdoor operation I?m going to keep it simple.
I innoc 4 1 quart karo jars with equadorian spores, allow it to colonize. After karo colonization, 48 1 quart WBS jars are innoced with the karo and placed within 2 incubators (24 WBS jars and 2 karo jars in each) that consist of the jars and a thermometer within a rubbermaid, inside another rubbermaid that has water in it, with an electric mat under it.
When all the jars have become colonized, 36 are used to create spawn in outdoor patches (straw/soil/manure), while the remaining 12 are used to create another 36 (for a total of 48) WBS jars through Grain-to-grain transfers. When all those become fully colonized, this cycle begins again. I?m thinking with some decent incubation and G2G transfers, there should be 48 fully colonized new 1 quart jars every week, 36 (72 pints of colonized WBS) of which go into new outdoor patches.
To prevent genetic problems, a new set of karo will be made with the spores of a patch, and for one cycle another karo innoc will be used as opposed to G2G.
I have a question as well, if there was 2 weeks where I couldn?t attend to my incubator (out of city), would there be a potential fire hazard? Does it matter if I have a special powerbar with grounds and surge protection? If this can cause a problem, what countermeasures or alternatives can I take?
So there?s my plan, what do you think?

why not turn it off for two weeks that way there will be less of a hazard and growth will slow a bit but if this container gets no air it will stall anyway
two weeks is a long time!

When you say growth stalls without air, couldnt the lid simply be taken off the container or would this invite contams? And as for air exchange, would an air pump in there rememdy that?

Dont use an electric mat either.. they blow.. put a fishtank heater in a glass container of some kind.. Fruitopia comes to mind..

They are much safer and come in many differnt sizes
