Question about the my fruiting area...
    #2712498 - 05/21/04 08:29 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

So I've made a PMP and had it running for a few days now without any cakes. This is going to be my first batch and I only really had one question.

Right now I'm running about 3 inches of water in a 50 gal rubbermaid PMP, with about 4 inches of rock.

I've thrown in about a capful of H2o2 and a capful of bleach and am currently letting the airstones distribute it throughout the tank. I don't think my cakes will be ready to birth until mid next week anyway, so I wanted to take this time to make sure everything was cool.

I PC'd the lava rocks for about an hour before putting them in the rubbermaid container, but I forgot to do anything to sterilize the container itself.

Am I doing the right thing here? Will the capful of bleach and capful of h2o2 be okay to leave in there through the fruiting process, or should I put in fresh water for that?


I've attached a pic of my PMP so you all can see. by the way, Thanks Magash, wether you know it or not, you've been a massive help to me over the past 30 days. You rock dude. =)

Voodoochile, Im not sure about the bleach but I think that the cap full probably wont hurt anything. Hopefully someone will answer that knows more about that one. As far as the h2o2 you need alot more than a capfull. You need about half a cup for every gallon IMHO.

Your pod looks like it is functioning perfectly to me!! You will be very happy with the results.


Welcome to the land of the Shroomerites!

  GOOD LUCK

Magash is the shit, isnt he! A lot of people owe him thanks for all of his help including myself. :jamming:

I don't think you needed to PC the rocks.  Just clean the real good with bleach.  But more can't hurt. :laugh:

I saw a few mentions in the PMP thread by Magash of boiling the rock before using it and I had a PC lying around anyway, so I figured it couldn't hurt.

There are a dozen jars that are almost fully colonizing, so I'll have the first test jar very soon. =)

Should I take any other precautions with this PMP? I've seen some people are wiping down the sides with something (Don't remember what), and some people are putting stuff in the water. I just want to make sure I don't kill my babies!

The two chemicals will neutralize each other. Pick one or the other, go easy if you choose bleach, peroxide you can be liberal with (to an extent).
