Best Way for Newbies by a Newbie
    #847743 - 08/27/02 08:27 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

Whats up this was my first grow and although there were some points were i wondered if i did everything correct or if something was going wrong i finally noticed pins and so far only lost 1 jar out of 6 to contams. First off i used the 1/3 cup vermiculite 1/4 cup BRF 1/4 cup water substrate mix in the wide mouth half pint jars. I then put the verm on top and then pot foil over top of the lids to keep from water getting in during the sterilization phase. I boiled the jars in a pot for around an 1 to an hour and a half then let cool for an hour and a half. I heated up my oven to the lowest setting and waited for it to heat. While i was waiting for it to heat i put a bandana over my mouth, a hat on my head, washed my hands twice and then put on sterile rubber gloves. I brough down some rubbing alcohol and some cotton also. I rubbed the syringe down with alcohol even before innoculating the first jar. After they were done i set them in sterilite boxes and let them sit. They fully colonized in 2 weeks!!! I think this has something to do with the the more heat and i also injected the center of them with the syringe also. Then i dunked them for 12 hours each. (i forgot to add i lost my first one withing a week) My chamber is just a 36 quart box with an inch of perlite on the bottom. I took 3 of the best cakes and put them in there and nothing really happened for a while. In the meantime i broke up the remaing 2 cakes and made those into a casing which i gave my friend to watch who was also a first timer but all his jars got contams and died. After about a week of posting numerous questions to everyone on here i finally tried something that i didnt think would work. I put a heating pad underneath my grow chamber and placed it on the lowest setting and set up a 15 watt plant light. I left for 7 hours and came back and i had pins! I just wanted to post this out there for the guyz that think that it is really hard. It is stressful and time consuming but if u take the right precuations and use your common sense you will be fine.

Did you forget to wipe the inside lip of the jar before adding the Dry Verm ?

I'm glad you didn't forget that part.....most newbies forget to do it and get contams.

I forgot to do it once......once was enough!

I had to clean out a particularly nasty jar of millet today. It was stinking through the polyfill so bad that I could smell it while it was in a cabinet!

Me either, that's why it pissed me off. It was a really noxious bacterial contaminant. I don't remember exactly what I did when I knocked it up, but I probably was sleepy (at 4:00 am or something) and didn't wipe between jars.
