Going on vacation for 2 weeks. What to do?
    #611014 - 04/17/02 03:29 PM (22 years, 1 day ago)


I am leaving for vacation for about 2 weeks, and when I get back, I will have several quart jars of fully colonized rye before I leave.

I was going to case em in baking pans and put em somewhere then can get light, seal the terrarium up air tight and put a small computer fan inside the terrarium to circulate the air around.

Does anyone have any better ideas? Will I have anything when I get back?

Don't fruit something if you're not there. The result won't be good.
Fridge is the solution ! Put whatever you have fully colonised in the fridge, and it will wait for you without any harm (as long as you make sure everything is well-wrapped so that no contamination jumps in).

i left mine just cased for about a week and 4 days, when i came back they were ripe, and there was a little bit of nasty growing in my perlite from stale air most likely. all i had was a fish tank air pump running for an hour 4 times a day

I had this problem once. I had to leave for a long time and I forgot and left 2 cakes in my terrium when I was emptying it out before I left. They had perlite in the bottom so they weren't dry, but they had no light or air exchange for a MONTH! When I returned, I aired them out and went back to doing as usual and they started producing again...it's like they just went into hybernation...
