First grow questions
    #4206943 - 05/22/05 04:30 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hi,

I'm preparing for my first grow, and I wanted to share what I am thinking I will do to see if anyone has any comments, or if I am leaving anything out. I've read so many teks that I am just going to try to make the best of what I have read and with what supplies I can get...

Please bare with me  :grin:

1. I'm going to do the WBS in quart jars, soaked, then drained, then pressure cooked, then inoculated with EQ to colonize for my spawn.

2. I'm going to pasteurize horse poo for my bulk substrate using road kills pillow case method.

3. I'm going to mix the spawn/horse poo in an aluminum foil pan, cover with aluminum foil with holes in it, then let colonize in a dark place. (I'm going to let it colonize in my closet without the use of an incubator since the temperature in there is around 79-80 degrees)

4. I am going to get rid of the aluminum foil lid, and case with half peat moss, half vermiculite. (sterilizing in microwave for 5-8 minutes)...patching first signs of mycelium for even pinning.

5. I am going to place the aluminum foil pan of substrate/casing in an uncovered aquarium tank to fruit with a temperature of around 70-75 degrees. (Using a florescent reptile light for light) ...and mist the walls once a day.

Is there anything I should not be doing? Is there anything I am forgetting?

I just want to make sure everything I think I know is correct by running it by you guys first.

Thanks for your help!

Sounds O.K. Couple things though. If using peat you will need to adjust the ph level with some lime and oyster shell or something similar. Will need to provide some type of air exchange. Fanning. And, with an open aquarium, you might have trouble maintaining %85-%92 humidity. Good Luck. Seems like you have a great understanding of what needs to be done.

put a lid on that terrarium. maybe put a little perlite in there?

if u filled a few solo cups with water adn perlite and fit them int here right they'd keep the humidity up a decent bit. misting would do the rest.

Okay, thanks a lot for the responses both of you. After hippie chicks post about the humidity I was thinking of doing what you said 4hodmt.

I'm going to have to try to hunt down some calicum carbonate...I haven't had much luck so far looking for it.

Would just using something like serwran wrap be sufficient for a lid?

Saran wrap will work, but might get to be a little bit of a pain with fanning. Why not check into a PMP?

You can just use calcium hydroxide, commanly known as hydrated lime, (they should have it at your local hardware store). Just dont buy a shovel at the same time or they migth think your workin for the mob :wink:
And if u cant find it there go to your local aquarium store and buy some kalkwasser, but expect to pay a huge markup for that even thou its the same stuff *poke*

cheers

oh PS. dont sniff the stuff in or get it in ya eyes, stings like hell :laugh:
