RIGHT THEN........
    #2931648 - 07/27/04 09:38 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

On spending the morning reading through the FAQ's and talking to 1 or 2 very helpful people i have just about all the info i need i believe to make my growkit a success, i do however have one question i am hoping some kind person will answer for me  :wink:  i have learnt the light distribution required and that before this the container with sibstrate in it is to be kept in the dark while the mycelium forms, however should the container be INSIDE my terranium (clingfilm covered bucket)  whilst in a dark cupboard or would that be too humid??  i am quite positive the answer is yes, but i'd like this to be confirmed as im very new to this subject.

thanks
kev

No it doesn't need to be kept in your terrarium while it's colonising.

just keep it as close to 86F as you can.

Actually 82-84 is perfect, then colonizing jar inside is 2 degree higher FYI making it that optimum 86 :wink:. Just some to keep in mind especially when ya have a incubator full of jars :wink: Humidity isn't necessary during colonization but if using bags w/filter patches or jars with larger holes and Tyvek humidity is necessary to keep the it from drying out adjacent to the filters. hope this gives you a little more insight to the world of mycology! :laugh:
Asd far as the top being covered, YES it is always important to keep things as clean (contam spore free) as possible! :wink: GL Kev and welcome!!!

cheers dycans nice 1 m8!!
im actually just using a simple kit (basically like a chinese takeaway container) with substrate in it, at the mo theres a little bitta mycelium forming but it aint in the dark like, so im thinkin i may just leave it in the terranium as not to fuck about with it + risk contamination plus put in a dark cupboard then tranfer it to under a window once the mycelium is formed, should this be ok or will leaving in terranium in dark cause me problems mate?? lol as u can tell this is very new to me!!

The reason ya leave it in the dark is #1 IMO it's (the lights) trigger affect. #2 not as important is myc likes it dark although I seen it grow with no problem in light. #2 is just for the peeps that would argue #1 :wink: As #1 IS the most important factor bye far IMHO :wink:
No don't pierce it keep co2 high until your ready to fruit that my friend is #2 FAE (fresh air exchange) and is another important trigger used in pinsetting along with a drop in temp, as little as 8-12 degrees will make all the difference! Remember it's the coincidence (all at once) of this factors that will give you the best flush possible!!! :wink: :laugh:

No need for fresh air you'll rob yourself of one of your valuable triggers! (FAE)

NO thats fine thats beneficial to keep it at "near saturation" now lighty mist it is cool the co2 will build back up quickly once covered back up. just make sure that when ya see myc poking thru the casing surface to stop misting until pins are set, and that will be when ya start seeing little brown/red spots on those fine little knots! It's always better to finely mist several times than to heavy mist once (bad). GL
