Sterilization?
    #7596674 - 11/05/07 12:01 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I would like to know how essential the sterilization process is....i.e, putting the jars into a pressure cooker or canner. I don't want to buy neither of these items and I also am still in high school and I don't really have my own place so I can't use the stove freely without looking over my shoulder to check for my parents. I really would like to skip that particular part of the sterilization process. ANy pointers or info?

sterilization is probably one of the most important factors in mushroom cultivation.

you are creating an excellent environment for fungus to flourish, if you don't sterilize you'll grow all sorts of mold and waste the money you spent on the spores.

There is a microwave sterilization tek you could try

really? You wouldn't happen to have a link to that would you? I just read something saying that you can just use a pot with a lid. But I still think that is risky for my situation.

you really want to PC your jars, I have tryed the pot and that shit fucks up so easy it pisses you off and you have to start over. As far as being strile, if you keep a clean house, you generally have a clean work space. I have had a few contams but my house stays clean so I dont have much. Good luck with what ever you do, I'm sure you will be just fine.:thumbup:

Theres a few links to threads about microwave sterilization.

Read up man, the more knowledge and better concept you have of what is actually going on, the better your chances of success

Yeah...I don't think I can grow without my own place because this is just too much work. I am off to college next year so hopefully I will find time to grow. thanks for the info anyways though. :smile:
