First time growing question
    #2795518 - 06/15/04 04:59 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Ok, this is my first attempt at growing and I just have a few questions before I start. I am using the PF tek and it seas use "professional" grade masking tape and when I went to lows to get some they didn?t have any is it talking about painters tape? My next question is about the water my tap water has a high calcium content would it be better just to use distilled water? And my final question is does the needle hole have to be made with a ? sharpened 3 penny nail? cause that is the closest to the needle size? Can I use a little bigger size nail and could u give me some examples of what you use.
Thanks for your help.

He's right, and even if the calcium sticks around in the water during cooking, it wont hurt anything. You will be surprised how much this organism can tolerate. It wasnt been around millions of years by giving in THAT easy from subtle changes like that  :wink:

Whatever hole you use, and everything, just make sure the incubator is nice a sterile. Always have something covering your mouth and nose, and always spray the air a little bit with lysol in the area you handle the jars in...oh, and always wash your hands! An easy way to keep your hands clean, and I dont know if im the only one who invented this, is to keep a small spray bottle of alcohol within reach. So that after you handle anythjing, you can spray a shot in your palms and rub your hands together all around like it was some kind of lotion...

OK, good luck

tap water is unpredictable, in some places the water prevents pinning from happening at all... go with stoe bought spring water, it has some nice minerals in it and the mushies love it...

you don't need to tape the holes, just cover the jars with foil...

a 1/16" drill bit will make a hole just big enough for an 18g needle...

I always shower before with a good scrubbing. And do the procedure naked with latex gloves and mask. Sometimes I will wrap a towel around so it doesnt look like a fetish feast. Lots of lysol everywhere. spill alchohol on the table. no contams.
