I need to know what to do after colonization
    #466818 - 11/22/01 07:19 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Ok, I understand how to colonize the jars, but I am not sure on the terrium thing. Here is what I am planning. I am doing 36 1/2 pint jars right now. I am going to use a rubermaid type container, about 3 feet long and about 18" high and 18" deep. I will put 12 cakes in each one. I am going to use the spray method to humidify with the cover shield thing. I know I have to put the cakes on a raised wire mesh but is it neccesary to use paper towels as well? What are the different ways of heating and maintain temp? I have found a wireless temp and humidity meter that can use three different sensors so I can monitor all three containers at once. what else should I do???? Thanks.

sounds like you have it down. cold shock could help, just put hem in the fridge for a day in the jars. i'ld add wet perlite too to keep the humidity from droping to quickly afer you spray each time. Fan then spray between 3 and 5 times a day i'ld say for realy good air exchange.
Sounds like you could realy benifit from geting a cold mist humidifier on a timer. That wouldautomate your entire system so all u have to do is occationaly add a little h2o2 to the perlite and harvest.

Ok, how do you use perlite? Do you put it under the cakes? Under the mesh under the cakes? Can you just soak the perlite and not have to mist? please explain.

under the mech. dont let it touch the cakes is my best advice. if you having trouble fruiting it you can put it directly on it. it cause contams after 2 flushed in my ecperiance but it will provide enough moisture directly to the cake. if you use cakes then perlite is not enough, need to mist too. not a big deal sence you still have to fan anyway. Add a cup or two of H2O2 to the wet perlite and give it a small splash of H2O2 ever couple weeks. I always wet the perlit in a baking tray and cover with foil. Bake at max for about 2 hours. let cool add to chamber. I boil any extra water i nead to soak the perlit. I hate contam so i do everything and anything posable to help with that. Make sure that there is enough water in the perlite to pool under the perlit but not so much that it's acualy causeing the perlit to float. If you put the cake on the perlite you dont want it to be submerged in any water.
