tyvek adaptation. help pls
    #4523709 - 08/11/05 09:46 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

iv tried growing once before and it went terribly wrong. none of my jars even started to colonise. i have 0 experience so i can only speculate but i think it was too much water.
this time im planning to colinise my substrate in 240ml drinking glasses.
image off fungifun.org
id like to use tyvek to speed up colinisation.
can the tyvek touch the vermicmite at the top of the glasses?
with the glasses this small can i afford not to shake them? last time i used plastic tubs from mushmush.nl

best iv come up with to fit the tyvet to drinking glassed is cover them with tin foil with 1" sized hole in middle. cover with another layer of tinfoil. then pressure cook glasses and tyvek, (let cool) inoculate, remove top layer of foil, place tyvek on top and fit with rubber band.

thus avoiding using band aids and i can reuse the tyvek.

does that sound plausable? not 2 big a contam risk?
im sooooo keen to get a flush this time. id really appreciate some help.

thankx

BRF cake usually meaning meaning brown rice flower and vericulite in a half pint canning jar right? im gonna do brf + verm and mabey a little millet.

well iv never seen a half pint jar. we dont really get them in uk. and certainly couldnt buy them empty, could use old jam jars but they are almost always pint sized. are drinking glasses a bad idea?
i might try and get a couple jars, then i could compare against glasses.

lol u guys dont realise how lucky u are in america, its taken me about 4 days to find a polyfill supplier (called super poly stuffing in uk), everything has a different name in uk and we just cant get some stuff.

can the tyvek touch the vericulite layer? in docs teck
http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/26004
he puts tyvek as the first layer. but i read elsewhere that if jar water touches the tyvek then it becomes more venerable to contam.
im not gonna shake them, especially if i do end up using a half pint container.

so whats the deal, should i use grains and do pint jars? how much longer would they take to colonise? does the polyfil and tyvek actually make that big a difference? thinking about it now im probably not gonna b able to fit polyfil into foiled drinking glasses am i?

thanks for the assistance, peace and  :heart:
