Pre-colonized Box - Contams !!! For sure...
    #4630388 - 09/07/05 04:59 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Hello !

I'm from France, and by mail, you could easily access to Grow Box (fully colonize with Plylocybe mycelium - I don't know witch species  :frown: )

I was looking for a Grow Log with this kind of boxs, but nothing. I just receive my box so, could I do a Grow Log here ? (I have no access to the specific forum)
It could be friendly for french ("frog" you said ?!  :grin: ) or all other people that have access to this kind of boxs.

So I begin (if an admin is not ok, so delete my post  :cool: )

9/7/2005 :

I just receive my Grow Box today, fully colonized, and ready to fruit.



It's perlite on the botom of the box, spawn 100% colonized with mycelium, and vermiculite on the top of the box.

I began to clean the room where I'm : I mist approximately 20cl of a solution of 10ml for 500ml (H?O?-10%/H?O) in the air, cleaning the fruiting room with H?O? (10%), and same for the plexiglas plate on it. I washed my hand with anti-bacterial soap (2 times). I opened the colonized box, put it in the fruiting room and mist a lot with the H?O?/H?O solution.




The fruiting room is in a onther room windowed open in order to lower the temperature for a night (Yes ! It's about 23pm in France, and 25?C indoor - about 76?F :wink: ).

Tomorow I will get it in an other room with natural light.

See you for an update ! (sorry, I don't have a perfect English - and i'm quite stoned  :rolleyes::mushroom2:

how many litres can the container hold? it seems to me that the abundance of polyfill will limit air exchange if you don't fan manually. lets see what the others think.

luck is really not needed at this point, but here it is!  :mushroomgrow:

I plan to fan manually twice a day. I think it could be ok. What do you think ? Container is about 20L I think.

That's why I buy it, 2 years ago I tried PF-Tek, but contams, contams, contams... in all the jars  :sad: )

the more the merrier i say. i'd also put that box on another box or stand to get it as close to the top as possible. doing so will cause the co2 to drop to the bottom of the chamber so the myc can get from oxygen from the top.

It's cool enough today (approx. 72?F). I mist and fan twice a day.

How many time does it take to have the first pins ? I know it depends of a lot of parameters, but "normally" ?

Edit : I'm so impatient

I checked my box today, and I'm not sure of what I see. Look at this :





There is a little place where the mycelium is not as white as the other place (light yellow and/or green). Is it ok ?
Second question, there is a lot of condensation inside the box. Do I mist too much ?

Please, answer, I begin to think, I would never be able to grow shrooms ;(

I don't see any green in your pics. The yellow is probably myc piss. It looks fine to me. A little on the wet side though.

I'm not too familiar with the type of kit you have, so I could be wrong, but I see a lot of moisture against the walls of that container and that can lead to contams. I don't know what the directions that came with your kit say, but it looks too moist to me. I would mist less myself.

yes stop playing that damned game  :grin:

you can put some vermiculite ontop if you have that, better to leave it alone for a while. misting and dunking helps the most after flushes. they will really just grow themselves trust me on this. growing is not difficult, research and go for it.

there are no visible contams in the pic, it's just some mycelial byproducts.

thats not contams, its metabolic waste. You in the clear. In your mist bottole you should put some Hydrogen Peroxide (about a 1:10 dilution 1part hydrogen peroxide, 10 parts distilled water) it helps fight off contams. My girlfriend is a french major, were gonna visit one of these days when were not poor, maybe you could hook us up with some smoke when we come lol :wink:

Its metabolic waste, its a yellowish orange color secreted by the myc, its just basicly the piss from the myc. Its nothing to worry about, I assure you.

looks fine to me
but um, if you dont cover up the sides of that box you're gonna get some side pinning and then you're definetly gonna end up with contams.
