Sterile question
    #3338496 - 11/09/04 08:02 PM (12 years, 30 days ago)

Will lysol hurt incubating cakes or mushrooms in the fruiting chamber?
Is it a good idea to spray a little around now and then to help fight off contam?

A little... like a quick spray over the area by pressing the button down and releasing it as fast as you can? Or a three second spray?

i wouldn't spray right over your growing cakes no but in the general area with a quick press of the bottom and other than that you can wipe down all the surfaces with a 1/10 bleach solution or alcohol. or just buy a hepa for the closet or space your growing in, i got one two weeks ago and it has drastically cut down on contams happening after i put stuff into the fruiting chamber.

Ah. What's a hepa?
I'll be growing with a TnT and a PMP inside one of those old black trunks.

a hepa is a type a air purification filter, they sell hepa towers at any large store like wal mart or target or mijers. it sucks in the air in the area and pushes it back out with far less bacteria spores in it. just simply place it in the general growing area were the trunk will be and run it 24/7 it will help contams stop falling in the trunk when it is opened.

Definitely adding that to the shopping list. Running around town getting all this stuff is going to be such a pain without a car. heheh.

Lysol around mycelium=bad. HEPA=good.
