Help a noob
    #3336543 - 11/09/04 11:14 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Hey guys.

A buddy and I are planning on trying to grow some shrooms at the end of this month. The only place we will be able to grow them is in a closet. I've read a few posts of people doing so, but I have a question about it.

Should the closet be air tight? I don't think it should be because wouldn't they need "fresh air"? But if it wasn't, wouldn't it get contaminated from all of the crap in the air from the room?

Thanks in advance for you help  :mushroom2:

dosent need to be airtight. You will need to fan the mushies 2-3 times a day.

myc is pretty resistant to contams when it has fully colonized its substrate.

Kramer says that you could fit a few  poor man's pods in your closet and that is all you should need :wink:

Kramer speaks the truth.

I don't know. I used to know, but I forgot. I looked for it, too.. but no labels... I fit 8 cakes in there with 2" space in between, though. My cakes are fairly large and not tall.

I grow in a closet. :thumbup:

I also have two tupperware tubs in there, have not had ANY contams from unsterile growing conditions.

I also have a smaller tupperware that fits nice under my bed and fits two casings comfortably and another tupperware in my desk cupboard that I use to incubate my jars. :lol:

Actually my tubs are made by sterlite, and the ones I use in my closet I believe are 50 gal. tubs.  I can fit 8 cakes as well in my tub comfortably and have went up as high as 10 at one time with no noticeable problems other than one cake grew too many mushrooms and fell over and had it's mushrooms tangled with the other cake for a couple hours. :lol:

The tubs aren't even air tight.  As was said earlier 100% colonized cakes are very contam resistant (until 3rd flush or past).

You will do fine in your closet I think.  Just make sure there are no dirty clothes or any other disgusting things like dirty underwear, old fungus covered dinner plates, etc in there. :thumbup:

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Sorry, silven... I have 3 in each closet.  Camera angle only allowed for two to be in the picture. :wink:
