Getting things straight before I Birth.. Some quick Questions.
    #4051872 - 04/13/05 08:55 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Ok, my cakes are on their way to being fully colonized. I have done tons of reading and this is what my plans are... Correct anything or modify things to make them better if need me..

Before i birth open them up, scrape off the top layer of verc, and fill them all to the top with a water/h202 mix..
(20:1 water:H2O2; 2 tbsp(1oz) in 20oz of water)


Next I will throw them in the fridge over night and in the morning I will remove them from the jar(Birth), roll them in verc, and sprinkle some on the top of the cakes. Off they go into the rubbermaid which is maintaining a good 96% humidity. Then i go back to the waiting game.

(My system should be self automated. I have a tropic air exchange system and perlite on the bottom)

Sound good? Or is there anything I should change... This is my first grow, if this turns out to be a success my next 12 jars will be cased.

Thanks,
Helge

Just make sure to be as clean as possible. Wash hands and such.

You could always sterilize the verm but its not "nessecary" (god i cant spell that word)

whats the temps though? needs to be between 70-80 for. some will say smaller ranges but it wont matter in this application. Just dont let the temp flucuate too much.

Rt temp usally works actully. so i am guessing your temps are already fine.

Sounds good man. Just remember that you want to spray down that vermiculite after you roll the cake in it. You might want a tray to transport from your kitchen to the chamber. If you touch the verm on the sides at all it will fall right off at this point.

As far as the h2o2 for your dunk, I just put a few drops in the jar and I could hear it "fizzing." You probably don't need very much in there.

Yeah, the temp is in the 70's low 70's i believe. The RH is unknown as of this point, it is in the high 80s right now but im going to either throw some perlite or a cooler pad(there is a post on them right now) in to raise the rh to high 90's. Air exchange should be excellent with the tropic air exchange system and yeah, i have been being very carfull spraying my hands and shit down with lysol before messing with shit.

c comes before s in "necessary".

you can add h2o2, but as long as your using bottled water, then i dont see any reason why this would be necessary. HA.

Spraying your hands with lysol is probably a bit over the top. The last thing you want to do is get lysol on your hands and then touch your cakes. I wore latex gloves when I did my verm rolling.

I don't where gloves and i use tap water with no h2o2. No contams. The myc is tough shit if you let it colonize all of the way.

yeah, some of my cakes are now fully colonized and a lot of them are getting there. and a few are like half way. 2 show none.. I will wait untill sat night to cold shock the ones that are fully colonized and then sunday morning i hope to have them in the terr. It is good to wait a few days after the cakes are completely white to make sure they are fully colonized correct?

Yeah. 2 or 3 days. Maybe 4 days if you aren't in a hurry.
