Couple Quick Growing Questions
    #4657879 - 09/14/05 02:24 AM (12 years, 10 days ago)

Hey everyone. I searched most my answers like a good boy but i gotta get to bed and my minds racing lol. Few questions, in a few of the guides on the site it doesnt mention about misting. Can anyone give me a little insight on this? It talks about lining the bottom of the tub with damp perlite. Second question is how long will spores last in a syringe? Say i want to make... 6 cakes so thats about 3-6 cc's depending. I have a 10cc syringe and i sure aint gonna waste it. Can it easily be stored or should i use it all up right away? Thanks for any help :smile:
P.S. One last question sry, is it safe to open the tub all the time? Either misting or checking for aborts... how often is it ok to open the tub.

Don't hang on, nothing lasts forever but the earth and sky
It slips away, all your money won't another minute buy

Mist when your perlite gets dry - it should be damp to the touch, but there should be no standing puddles of water anywhere. Spores will last a long time in a syringe as long as you use sterile procedure when handling it.

Its perfectly safe to open the tub. You'll have to be fanning regularly, and there's no real way to do this without opening it up. Your cakes should be completely colonized by then and are extremely hardy against contams. Only "risk" you run with opening the tub too much is losing too much humidity. Its not a problem, however, for the regular fanning/misting.

Put the syringe in the fridge if you are storing it for awhile. People have reported them lasting months or even years stored like that.
