About contamintaion
    #791372 - 08/01/02 08:36 PM (15 years, 19 days ago)

im a first time grower and i am about to make my substrate. Does it really matter if i make it in a sterile enviroment since im going to steam them in a pot anyhow. I was aslo wondering if over the top layer of vermiculite if could put either saran wrap or foil to help keep airborn contaminents and other bacteria out. I was going to put that over top, put on the lid and then steam them. Then for the innoculation is was going to tak the jars of substrate and one by one put them in the oven to keep the enviroment sterile and innoculate then put them into a sterile tupperware container. If someone could answer this it would help me out a lot.

You should read the tek's agian... There are three methods of filtering pf tek jars;

1) Ramsey seal. A cup made of foil at the top of the jar with dry verm in it.

2) PF tek filtering. A 1/2" layer of dry verm on top of the substrate.

3) Filter Patch (which is usually used in addition to 1 or 2)

You need not be sterile in mixing your substrate, 'cause you're going to sterilize it afterward anyway.

i forgot to ask if my incubator needs to be sterile and what else i can use as a way to bring oxygen and humidity into the air cheaply besides fan and spray bottle. also could i just put verm than foil on top be extra precautious?
