Spores and Lysol. Death??
    #512136 - 01/06/02 04:03 PM (15 years, 18 days ago)

Hey everyone,

Just wondering if Lysol would kill spores. I use a homemade glove box and spray quite a bit of lysol. Would that kill them?

if it comes in contact with the spores it would kill the spores.

Lets say in the glovebox was a lot of Lysol (in the floor), and the GB was sealed airtight, with the jars inside (holes of the jars exposed), and during 20 days in 85 F incubation the Lysol evaporate, condensate on the roof of the glovebox and drip little drops over the lids, getting in small quantities, through the holes. Would this cause that absolutely nothing grew in 30 days? I mean NOTHING, and cause that when I open the lids, the jars smelled wonderful, like fresh substrate?

What could cause such thing?

your spores were dead when you injected them, or your syringe had no viable spore to begin with.

A small drop of lysol seeping in through the holes could not kill spores you injected into the jar in the way you describe.

Thank you very much.

I?ve been a month now, believe me, searching for a post that describes absolutely no growth in a big number of jars. cant belive there is no any, or I havent found it.

I threw away the jars today, after a month. They where fresh as recently sterilized jars. Nothing white inside or outside.

What about this.

Inside the glovebox was a lighter. The lighter lighted 6 times and then stopped working, because of consumed air inside the glovebox. I used alcohol for the rest of the jars, cause I was determined no to open the glovebox until 20 days later. I tried to light on the lighter for a long wile, releasing a lot of gas and consuming oxygen when succeeded.

Could this explain ABSOLUTELY NO GROWTH?

even if there was no oxygen left in the glovebox, which is unlikely, there would still be some present in the jars for at least some growth... it would be next to impossible to remove all the oxygen from the environment with 6 flicks of a lighter.

it really isn't necessary to keep them in the glove box for that long... keep them in a closed space, spray around them with lysol, but no need to keep them completely isolated... thats just overkill...

a zero growth situation is fairly easy to diagnose... no contams tells you the syringe was free of contams, no mycelium tells you the syringe was free of viable spore... another possible cause could be tap water, if high in magnesium content, might hinder germination, but there would still be some small growth visible...

my guess is that your spore syringe was either inert when you got it, or it overheated in your posession...

I heard that we shouldn't use lysol....because of mutants. Use vinegar or alchol...but would that kill airborn bacteria like lysol?

you shouldn't spray lysol into your fruiting area, but you can spray freely around jars.

lysol's killing action is mostly due to it being 79% alcohol, but it doesn'y disperse well enough to kill all the bacteria in the air... oust is the same as lysol, but with a different spray nozzle that disperses much better and is very effective at killing airborne contaminants...

uhhgg you threw away clean jars!?!

I have a month + to show ANY signs of myc. Just knock em up again...don't throw them away!...Lets say you do knock them up again..whats the worst that could happen...they contamn and then you throw them away. You might still get some great jars, maybe even 100% if you are clean.


Hell, one time I threw some bags away after a month of no myc and a few weeks later I checked the trashbag I put them in to find healthy healthy myc!

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.
