question *IMPORTANT PLEASE*
    #511845 - 01/06/02 03:46 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

with casing, in a growing kit chamber, does the chamber have to be air tight in order for the mycelium to colonize, and at what temp does it have to be. Exactly how clean and sterile does the area of the chamber have to be to colonize

1) Airtight...no, just covered eneugh so that it remains humid
2)Temps depend on the mushrooms, cubensis...generally around 75 - 85 fahrenheit...also depends on type
3)It does not have to be clean and sterile to allow the mycelium to colonize, it is however a good idea to wipe the container down with 70% isopropyl alcohol first, just to be on the safe side, just in case there were and unwanted spores hanging around

Hope those answered your questions...cheers

wouldn't 90% isopropyl alchohol be better than 70%?

Probably, allthough I don't see that it would make a hell of a lot of difference. I don't think that there are any organizms that can live in 70%. Just my 2 cents though.
