grow kit: contamination and co2 questions, with pics
    #4270921 - 06/08/05 09:43 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I've started a grow kit 10 days ago and 48 hours ago first pins started to appear. I am worried about two things though, and would appreciate any input from my fellow growers.

1. The surface of the kit is only partially permeated with mycelium, and a lot of pins started to grow already. Based on the instructions in the 'Psilocybin: Magic Mushroom Grower's Guide' this is a sign of contamination and the entire culture should be discarded. Is this true or are the grow kits different?

2. From the water drops, I can see there is a high level of moisture inside the kit, but I'm worried that although the bag that covers the kit has an air filter installed, the CO2 levels may be getting too high. Some growing instructions state that as soon as the pins reach half an inch, the bag should be slightly opened and left like that for 90 minutes, to give the shrooms some fresh air. Is this a smart thing to do? How to best avoid the contamination of the kit if I do this?

Thanks!

And here are some pics:

1.) You're fine. :thumbup:

2.) If you have a small fan, Put it over it on full blast for about 5 seconds...

OR you can do your best to "tip" the bag and "pour out" the co2.

Or just use a notebook and "fan" air in.

You should do either one of those about 3 times a day (like every hours hours is optimal)
