30% of the time, some form of contam. (doesnt bother me)

But my last grow it was 99% Gah! I tried to be as sterlie as possible.

Going back to my lazy ways, chuck the glove box in the bin.

That is DEPENENT on YOU.

If you are conscientious about using STERILE procedures.

If you use a GOOD glove box.

If you use a HEPA filtered FLOW HOOD.

If you use a PC properly.

My foaf has all the bells & whistles & suffers about a 3 to 5% contam rate.

Most of that is either sloppy G2G, or after casing a colonized bulk substrate.

Cactus dont contaminate
-I disagree. Various molds and root rot, things like that affect cacti. I know, i've had problems with them before. :smile:

I'm careful and don't contam much. I think your contam rate is really up to how careful you are in your procedures.

It all just depends on how sterile you are. Practice good techniques, and 0-30% loss can be expected.
