go buy a hepa filter and then the air in your room will be pretty clean all the time.

That's good future advice Lemon, but it doesn't answer my question. :P

I'm broke, so that would be beyond my grasp at this point.

First, Lysol is a surface disinfectant, not intended to clean the air. It will be useless to spray the air with lysol.

Second, there is no need to maintain sterility in a growing environment. Massive air exchange while maintaining humidity will prevent contaminants such as trich and cobweb which thrive in still, stale air. I used to run HEPA filters, but I've sent them all to the storage bin, as they seemed to make no difference whatsoever. Air exchange and circulation will prevent contaminants from a growing area. Only the area you spawn in must be kept sterile. a glovebox or flow hood is mandatory. After that, air exchange is the key.

Agreed. It is also always a good idea to keep things as clean as possible in and around your grow. There is always a trade off when dealing with FAE and sporeloads understanding some molds may be introduced but the lack of FAE's WILL cause contams to flourish. GL :wink:

I stoped buying lysol. at $5 each can I only use it for spawning or cleaning the bins. Rubbing alcohol works great other wise & its cheap
