Sterilization
    #4110433 - 04/29/05 11:50 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Hi, I am new to growing mushrooms indoors but I have been picking edible (non-active) mushrooms for the last 35 years. I have been surfing this site for about a month now, and the info that is shared is incredible. Thank You. I do have a question though: Why is there such a big push toward sterilization? If cubensis grows in a cow pasture, on cow dung, wouldn't my home be inherently cleaner? Any answers will very much appreciated. Thanks again.

Welcome to the Shroomery!~

no...cause you have more contaminated spores floating around inside your house than there is outside in the fresh air.

Your home is probably cleaner, but it doesn't have UV rays and mother nature to keep the mold and bacteria from attacking your grow. Indoors, many different kinds of bacteria and mold can germinate and start to grow in your jars, or in your fruiting chamber.

Steralizing substrates and such kills all bacterial endspores and prevents any mold/bacteria from growing on your grow.

Jars are a micro climate.. outside.. macro. Jars are so concentrated with food stuffs..etc that they need sterilization. That's the name of the game here.

I have read that the two main contams, Asparilligus, and penicillum, are mainly around our houses, because of a combination of moisture, skin flakes, and hair. Things that fall off of our bodies cause contams. Somewhere on this page there is an awesom tek for moving substrate that shows contam to an outdoor bed, and getting healthy un-contaminated fruit..
