Is red dye #3 the one thats antifungal? I remember reading somewhere that red dye # something wasnt good to use for agar but I cannot find the bloody thread I read that from anywhere.
Does anyone know about this red dye business and if its true or not?

The Potential Negative Effects of Erythrosine (Red#3) on Mycelium

I've got 999 shroom problems but adding red#3 ain't 1.

Another question, firing them off like a 6 shooter rn lol

I stepped away from my PC for abt 15mins and when I came by the rocker wasn't a rockin but my gauge is still at 16psi, if the rocker stopped for a moment shld I restart my cooking time? Or does the gauge still being over 15psi mean I'm good?

I personally go by the pressure gauge.
As long as you didn't adjust the heat you should be good.

The giant bag of verm and perlite I bought are my biggest regrets so far in this hobby. Never touched the perlite, hardly put a dent in the verm and don't plan on using it ever again if I get decent results in my bulk grows without it.

I dont plan on buying a bag of perlite anytime soon, I don't use it. But I do use a decent amount of verm for my Coir verm bulk substrate

I have been working with Mexicana lately. I didn't use verm in the substrate because I don't want it winding up stuck in the stones. So just coir. I add some gypsum and coffee to the water as it boils before using it to hydrate the coir. I left the verm out and nothing changed. Everything went fine.

So...I started cutting it out of other grows. And no change. So, I am not going to stand up here and tell people verm doesn't work. But depending on your situation it may not be necessary. And why bother with unnecessary shit? If you aren't using it and everything stays hydrated properly, maybe you don't need it. Needless complication?

Your rocker doesn`t need to rattle the whole time.
A few rattles here and there is enough, after dialing down the stove.
I don`t rely on the pressure gauge, cause my presto is without :biggrin:
So i only dial in the rocker (unmodified) and go for full 2 hours.
I always recommend to go for 2 hours, even if you pc at 18 psi.
Somebody may take an extra risk with only going 90min, i won`t.
To each his own :wink:

Do these plates look good to you guys? I think theyre fine and am about to do a transfer of all these plates but I wanted to make sure they look okay to you folx first. These are all from spore prints knocked up with an inoculation loop

They look clean :shrug: but I trust a germination plate. I never trust them till I at least take one transfer.

Once you take transfers from those they will get a lot more organized. Germ plates are kinda crazy looking most of the time. Exactly how those look in fact!
