Lysol in fruiting chamber will it hurt? Please help me out!
    #4587801 - 08/27/05 05:29 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Well first of my fruiting chamber is a 100 gal fish aquarium with drip shields and bubble wands for gas exchange perlite for moisture. I asked my brother to clean it out so we can get it ready i have severe back problems therefore i am limited to very low lifting weight i told him to make a 1/10 bleach water solution since i have already have some jars showing beautiful myc growth i figure it is about time to get the chamber ready so i can get humidity and temps steady before introduction to the chamber i then noticed he only ran the water for like 5 minutes and heard something spraying and went back and looked he was dousing it with Lysol so i have a few questions for you is my Fruit chamber done for and if not what can i do myself to clean it up as i think he did a really poor job also will the Lysol kill my fruit and if so can it be removed please help me out?  :confused:

your fine. alot of people use lysol instead of 10% bleach. bleach is just cheaper. I'd just clean it out with bleach now incase the lysol left any residue. Some of those sprays claim to kill for like like 12 houres or so. I'd say make sure you can't smell anything after it's cleaned with mild dish detergent or bleach. Don't inhale any of the bleach. wear a mask. I got sick for days once.

:thumbup: yep.  you will probably get mutants or really small, fully matured fruits.

EVERYONE STOP USING LYSOL IN FRUITING CHAMBERS!!!! ARRRRRRRRRGH.

sorry...I just see too many of these posts.  Be sterile, but not to a point where you hurt your grow.  Lysol = bad news, always.

what you can do, b4 putting your cakes/casings in there, is to:

1. let that thing air out for a day.

2. wash it with warm water and soap, then dry with a clean paper towel/rag.

3. Once it is dry, swab down the whole inside of it with rubbing alcohol and then dry it, or let it air dry.

That is all I have ever done and NEVER have contam problems, except for once in a great while, but the terrarium isn't the cause of it.

Lysol is just horrible, and causes much more harm than good.  I wouldn't even let bleach go near my terrarium.

A bottle of rubbing alcohol is like $.59 maybe 1 dollar at most.  That is the cheapest and safest bet.

PS...You should shoe your brother in the nutz. :wink: :wink:
