Hello, Ive got a few begginer questions I couldnt find in the FAQ. AFOAF is waiting on his first syringes of CUbensis B+ , has the Pressure Cooker, 1/2 Pint Shoulderless Kerr Jars, Verm, BRF and so on. The Procedure is explained pretty well but what about prior to innoculation? I know well enough to bleach clean my carpet in the grow room (large closet) and lysol it real good, is there anything else can I put some sort of plastic seal on the closet when not in use? Is smoking cigarettes and having a pet cat in my living room going to effect whats growing in the closet of my bedroom? If so I could kill the cat and give up smoking lol. I use lightly powdered latex gloves at work....will it be ok to use these during innoculation using the oven tek? And is it ok that my Pressure Cooker is an antique bought at a flea market..should I sterilize the hell out of it? Sorry for so many dumb questions and thanks in advance for answers if anyone has some

Any phisical barrier would be helpful.  Kinda depends on how the door closes and how you're doing things in there.

Don't know about smoking . . .cigarettes :whistling:

The pet cat definitely needs a lab coat.

The latex gloves might be overkill for PF inocs, but couldn't hurt. 

I think you should innoculate 1/2 of your jars on the kitchen counter and 1/2 with the oven tek.  Keep track of which is which and see if it's helpful. 

The PC [basically] sterilizes itself.  It would be a very good idea to lysol the outside surfaces, handles, gauge, etc.  15 PSI is 15 PSI. . .give grandma a chance.

Good luck
