    #4029090 - 04/08/05 01:10 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Ok well for those of you who read my last post about the fish tank heater im getting a new one.. Anyway i was supposed to get my spores today from spore source, 24 hour policy, so i mixed up all the content put it in half pint jars and sterlized them.. well the spores never came so im storeing them in my incubator, hopefully they'll come tomarow. Is it safe to store them there, i also smelled it, it and it has a smell to it not a horrible smell, just a bit of a smell(LOL). were is a safe place to put the jars? for short storage

You sound crazy! I'm not trying to flame you, but please tell me you didn't take of the lid to smell your jars. Also what is this '24 hour policy' I've never heard of it.

wait, if you smelled your incubator (you refer to "it") then, your incubator should not smell like anything, except maybe a hospital! If it smells, it's probably not very clean/sterile.

hey crazy boy.. Obviously i did not open my jars up and smell them.. (context clues my friend), and jtk you are absolutely correct I'm going to stick them in the box.. and once again from the peanut gallery, shroomdr, if you read the shipping disclaimer you would also see that all syringe's and print are shipped within twenty four hours, and if that's not good enough, go to the home link on spore source.com and click home, and you will read We take pride in our quick delivery, all syringes are sent in priority mail and will be shipped within twenty four hours.. By the way I'm not trying to flame you either just informing the uninformed.. thanks

The incubator is probably the last place you want to store the jars. The best thing you could have done is probably leave the jars in your pressure cooker without opening it. For some reason though, I have a feeling you didn't use a pressure cooker. You should let your jars cool overnight after you sterilize them anyway. The incubator is a bad idea though. It is meant to promote growth, and considering you don't have any spores in there, it isn't going to promote the growth of anything positive...

They guarantee that they will ship within 24 hours. The only thing that means is that your package leaves their store within 24 hours of them receiving your order. That does not take into account the time it takes for it to reach you, which is probably going to be 2-5 days.

Listen the reason i put it in the incubator is because theres no water in there currently and the fish tank heater is out due to the fact its none sub.. but i most likely did not properly clean the containers and i will do so and store them in a box.. And your intuition is indeed correct i steamed them for an hour and a half..At one point in time i thought that i had a pressure cooker but i was wrong.. So i put the stove top on high low medium for an hour and a half with a inch of water at the bottom.. i used 1/4cup of bfr for each cake and 2/3rds of verm,ect,ect,ect.. Thanks

The cost of BRF and vermiculite is quite cheap compared to the cost of a wasted syringe and your wasted time if you get a contam. I would empty the contents of those jars and just start over when you have your syringes.

if my spore's get here tomarrow and i re do the all the jars.. how long should i let them cool aftwards.. on more thing i have 9 jars and i put in 12 * 2/3rds cup of verm, and 12 * 1/4 cup of bfr.. Is this the right ratio.. i also had a trouble with knowing how much water is enough.. i know they say when its well blended but, its kinda hard to tell unless you feel it up with to much water..funny thing about the nine cups is i wanted twelve but that ratio up there only filled up 9 cups lol?

I let my jars cool for 10 hours before I opened my pressure cooker, and even then they still felt somewhat warm to the touch so I let them cool for another couple hours before inoculation.

As far as your ratios are concerned, I followed this TEK exactly and everything is going better than I expected.

thats the same tek ive been useing note my jars are 330 ml and i think thats the reason why just alittle more than a half pint.. And how long would you cooke your jars if you werent able to use a pressure cooke.. would you only cook them for 1.5 like the tek says or longer, the tek also dosent specify if i should let the jars in regular pots cool over night, im gusseing i should though.. and inculate on saturday... If all goes as planned

I poured 840ml vermiculite into a bowl and then added water to field capacity.  I then added 240ml of BRF to the bowl and mixed thoroughly.  This gave me enough substrate for 8 jars, which works out perfectly when your PC can hold 24 jars :wink:

I'm not going to tell you how to sterilize jars without a PC because I have never done it myself so I can't say what is best.  I'm sure you could find that info on this site if you search around.
