sterilizing fruiting chamber?
    #3424907 - 11/29/04 09:44 PM (12 years, 6 days ago)

whats up shroomery?
okay so im getting close to birthing my cakes, and all has gone well thus far, other than my jars taking their damn time to colonize, heh...im guessing by this weekend they will be ready to play in my PMP, but i was wondering, is there any precautions i should take as far as sterilizing the chamber? i.e. sterilizing the geolite, wiping the inside down with bleach? ive taken many precautions on this first grow, so i figured better safe than sorry...
thanks in advance, long live the shroomery  :scrambled:

Do everything you can to sterilize the fruiting chamber, yes.  You aren't going to get it perfect as it will be exposed to outside air (opening the lid, etc) but the more sterile your fruiting environment, the better your chances of success are, logically. :goodluck:

I don't think you need to worry about sterilizing geolite, because geolite is just rocks and I've never seen mold growing on rocks. Even if the jars are 100% colonized by this weekend i would let them sit a couple day, I seem to get bigger flushes that way or maybe i'm just crazy.

No problem, I'm not familiar with geolite but back when I used perilite I prepared that by putting it a baking pan, covering with alum foil and baking at 150-200 for 20 mins or so. Maybe geolite can be sterilized in the oven this same way.

I just rinsed the Geolite really well. I cleaned the inside of the PmP with Alchohol and filled it with the Geolite and a 1 to 10 ratio of water and H202. Worked great. You could boil or bake the Geolite if you really want to make sure its clean.
