Smelly incubator
    #3888642 - 03/08/05 07:31 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Ok, I use a tub in tub for my fruiting chamber and to incubate casings. Last grow I did a casing contammed after the third flush, so I tossed it. The second casing in the chamber did fine for a few days then got contammed as well, so I tossed it. After that I scrubbed down the inside of the tub with bleach, then washed it. Then let it sit overnight and sprayed the hell out of it with Lysol. The smell went away for a little bit, but now it's back. It's faint, but I can still tell it's there. Does this mean that the contam may still be in there? I have a casing fruiting right now but it's looking healthy and smells healthy and will probably pin in a couple of days. Should I pull the casing out and re-clean the tub, or am I safe?

The contams are dead if you cleaned well with bleach. There are always contam spores around though so always a chance for contams.
