Contamination
    #4537996 - 08/15/05 03:11 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I am using an old aquarium stand as a terarium (it is fully inclosed with a fish tank and bubler in it)....although i know this isn't a great place i have to use it do to stealth issues. But anyway it is wooden and i am incubating my jars right now, hte jars aren't cantaminated but inside the humid terrarium i see cobweb and green mold....once my cakes are birthed what is the likely hood of this going to the cakes...i am thinking the th mycelium will be strong enough (since the entire cake will be covered) to fend off the mold...what do u think? I also sprayed the inside with lisol to get rid of the mold...this is my first grow so any help would be welcomed

Thanks
Irie Rastafari

I think you need to get something other then wood for a fruiting chamber.

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
Anyone looking to start bulk tubs/mono tubs/shotgun hybrids? Good tubs to use..
How I do grain (old still good tips)
Turn your closet into a fruiting chamber
Casing layer colonization and overlay

I dont really have much of a choice...to me it seems like it could work as long as there is no exposed substrate i dont think the fungus will directly colonize the mycelium do u?

Thanks

Hmm well lets see if mold will grow on FULLY COLONIZED mycelium..



It sure will! All day long...

I suggest you create another choice.

if you can see mold inside your incubation chamber, then everytime you open to the chamber you will be spreading spores from those molds into the air of the room you are doing everything in. It sounds like a very bad idea to me, and you would probably be better off spending an afternoon trying to think up different stealthy ways.

Not even incubation chamber..mold in his/her FRUITING chamber..a fruiting chamber made of wood...baddddd..

well i took ur advice....after a little laboring i got the whole inside wiped down...then i put in a small fish tank filled it half with water then there is a screen in middle (so half is filled with water then cakes with fruit on screen above) and have it around 82 for incubation of the PF style jars...hopefully this will work better....i think i am also going to take a 10g aquarium and fill it with perlite humidification and put a few cakes on that.....just trying to learn and at least get a little yield..sry if im a newb at this.....i am experienced with growing ganja and wood works fine for that cause of lower humidity (in a scrog box)so i didn't really think this one through...later

Thanks
