Question
    #3540174 - 12/24/04 08:39 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

hf is humidity right? i thought that's what you call it. right now I'm to the point where i have 10 jars in a small fridge that has been turned off. i put a heating pad in the fridge to make the temp about 85 F . i don't think i should put a cup of water for humidity because i was told contamination can grow on the outside of the jars. I'm going to keep the humidity low in till i birth the cakes. i was going to try and use an old army foot locker to birth the cakes into. is there anything I'm doing wrong? is there something I'm not doing? what will happen if i inject 2 different kinds of spores into one jar? thanks for the help.

No, you're not doing anything wrong. You got the right idea; while in inncubation, your jars should be between 82-86 F. Also, no water is necessary until birth of cakes.

Yes, dunking them helps a lot. Just remove the cap after 100% colonization, scrape off the top layer of dry verm, and pour some 10:1 water:peroxide mix into the jar and put them in fridge over night.

Not to sure about the hf thing or injecting two diff kind of spores. Just do one specific strain per jar for starters.

Well, I can't answer em all...but to start with, are you talking about RH? (Relative Humidity) - Yes thats your humidity scale.

I believe multi-strain injections do not lead to the "superstrain" growth, but rather the strains battle it out and one of them takes over. I think I might have read that it is possible for two strains to grow on the same substrate, but since they aren't working together they are competeing - leading to smaller flushes and overall health. Do a search :smile:...there is Lots on this one I think

I know what strikes me as odd about this. It is totally unnatural. The whole idea is just totally backwards.

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.

I ONLY STUDY legal, edible mushrooms and mycology. Any mention of any other kind of mushroom is purely fictional, and pictures are ripped from the internet. I do not grow mushrooms!

that helps. so you dont dunk right after you take them from the jar? or do you just stick them in a foot locker, wait for your first grow, then dunk them.

I would have to agree with you on that one ADoobie.. injecting 2 strains is not a good idea..
