Tent instead of Glove box/Clean Bathroom?
    #4723974 - 09/28/05 05:07 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I was wondering, would it be safe to work inside a tent like you would with a bathroom. You could just set it up, get in sterilize, bring everything you need inside, sterilize again before opening anything, and then began to do your procedures. Whether it be inoculating, spawning, mixing, whatever. I'm guessing you could even do it outside and benefit from the Sun's rays shining through. :mushroom2:

As long as you have a low spore count and little moving air, you should be OK.

Before I built a G/B & a F/H. I did many - many G2G's in a small enclosed bathroom. Simply close any heating vent, remove all cloth, bring in your supplies, take a hot soapy shower, put on clean pants, wear hair covering & a mask, spray the bathroom down starting from the top of the room with Oust / Lysol & go for it. Use deft slow movements & close whatever you are doing - quickly.

The object is - you are clean - the air is clean - still.

I had a contam rate of around 5 or 6%. Which is pretty good - considering the means - used.

i actually asked this same question a few months ago. the general consensis was that it would be easier to just use a bathroom etc. i thought it would be a good idea. never tried it out though. but a good point was brought up.

you would have to be totally sterile, since you are going to be enclosed with your spores/myc/mush. and alot of contams could enter the tent when you go in yourself.

goodluck if you try though.

As my pupils fluttered and tried to fly out of my skull I asked myself, "Is THIS what you want?".
Screaming until my lungs bled, I simply replied "No!"

yea. but honestly for me it would be easier to set up a tent in my living room for the time I would need to do everything I need to do.

right now I use the oven tek which is good (no contams, knock on wood) but it gets really hot in my kitchen with the A/C vents closed and all.

a tent when fully closed doesnt introduce a lot of air right? even then you could spray the outside film with an alcohol solution and that would kill any spores getting thru the fabric. just a thought :mushroom2: :stoned:

I tihnk a tent sounds like a good idea expecially if its in your living room. You could even incubate and fruit in there. If you were going to do it outside i would use one of those big 7 man tents that would lower the chances of you contam. your grow from being to close to it like in a small tent.
