I suggest changing/updating various grow teks...
    #534187 - 01/28/02 06:24 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

After reading about several people this year come close to death and having serious health problems(including a recent case in the cult forum) from inhaled mold/bacteria spores, I suggest we update a few of the grow teks in our grow section. There are a few teks out there like the pf tek and the mmgg tek that suggest smelling jars to detect contaminations. This is obviously bad and possibly life threatening advice, and while I don;t generally support changing any original documents, I think in this case it is a must, whether the author of said teks likes it or not. We are suppose to stop the spread of dangerous mis-information, and this is definitely dangerous mis-info that needs to be stopped. I know these teks are posted elsewhere and its impossible to change all the copys out there, but the least we can do is change the teks on our site. I hope someone will consider this as it has almost cost a few people their lives!

Heres a quote directly from the pf tek...

"It is safe to remove the cap in order to detect odors."

LK,

If anyone could find specific documents on our site that have something like this and can give the links, they will be changed.

This will be one of our next big projects.

The grow/find needs to updated, re-organized, etc...

Unless we can get volunteers to work on it now, we are both really busy with the new server...

But don't worry this is something that has to be fixed, I couldn't agree more.

I think we also need to edit the PF tek. to include perlite humidification. I've seen some newbies on the board talking about drip shields and hand spraying which just isn't the way to go.

verses actually changing the teks, maybe you should just add a disclaimer.
I find sniffing the jars an excellent way to find bacterial contams, and while occasionally you can get an infection with a big whiff, i dont think that new growers should be scared to death of smelling their jars.

A disclaimer is better because then growers will be aware of the dangers and take them into consideration without thinking that it cant be done safely.

I?m planing on adding a "Contamination problems" section to the FAQ in the next days where this issue will also be covered.
