tyvek, tyvek, tyvek...
    #3305189 - 11/01/04 04:35 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

hey, i now have almost a dozen grows under my belt some more successful then others, and two of them included using tyvek in which was two of the more successfully ones. but i am still new to growing and even newer to using tyvek but i plan to use it exclusively from now on in addition to the dry layer of verm. my question is should i been sterilizing it in any way. or just use it how it is. i used it how it was the first two times but i was thinking of wiping it down with something or nuking it for a min. to help decrease the chances of contams.

Using Tyvek numerous times I have never ran into any problems. Though, the dry verm layer suggests that your doing PF tek? Really Tyvek is more of an issue with grains, where there is no verm layer. But its not like its going to hurt you any, just a little redundant.  :stoned:

yeah, im always a little parinoid about contams seeing how they took out my first to grows, and yes im using the pftek but im casing the cakes with 50/50+ and i also have a straw grow going with pf jars. i figured that yvek wouldnt hurt but instead lower my risk of contams i know its probaly not needed for brf jars but it helps me sleep at night. thanks for the reply.

When you sterilize the jars the tyvek should be on them and they'll get sterilized with the jars.

I must appologize, If i would have thought more on the subject i would have remembered that it does go in the pc with the jar to sterilize everything. but i was mainly talking about a pre cleaning as i do with the jars, even though ill be pc'ing them i always clean them out first with a bleach sloution and them with hot water. but i got it, the pc'ing is enough to not have to worry about it. thanks guys
