Im about to case
    #3761962 - 02/10/05 03:21 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

So...Ive read all of the TEKs...
I'm going to use the mini terrarium TEK with the plastic cups
Now my spawn is coming from a grow bag, not a jar....whats this about dunking??? Should I just break the spawn in the bag, and case?
1.So what I'm trying to ask is do I have to "dunk" and/or cold shock?
2. Jiffy mix... how much do I use and would sterilizing it in a microwave fuck it up?

Life is but a dream.......

Don't dunk. Just break up the spawn and case. Leave the dunking to the people with cakes.

I don't know what jiffy mix is. I assume it is potting soil. If so, you shouldn't use it as soil and other mediums with nutrients and/or organic material creates a haven for contams to get a foothold. You want to use a non-nutritious medium like coco coir and vermiculite, or if you can't find coir and must case immediately, you can use pure vermiculite. If you can get some coco coir, mix 60% coir to 40% verm and add some Bandini agricultural lime (optional) to adjust the ph to alkaline envirnment. Contams hate an alkaline environment but love acidic ones. You can skip the lime though. Once you mix the verm and coir, nuke it for about 5 to 10 minutes depending how much there is. let it cool and nuke it again.
