Environment Q
    #900312 - 09/22/02 11:09 PM (15 years, 3 days ago)

Ok, after a failed first batch which was WAY too wet.. yes i'm dumb, i now have 4 or 5 jars colonizing visibly. I dont have a heating pad or aquarium heater, or definitively warm spot in my apt. so i've put the 5 jars in a cardboard box, sprayed inside with household cleaner (including some paper towel in the bottom) and allowed to dry before i put the jars in. The box is now sitting in the only constant source of heat that i know of in this hell hole - i.e. on top of my computer. It's warm, but not HOT. And it's always on so i dont have to worry about it getting cold. I'm wondering if this is a good or bad idea. I'd prefer not to use a heating pad (not that it's much different from sitting on a warm computer ) due to the dehydration aspect and possible cooking of the jars. The jars consist of BRF substrate innoculated with Ecuadorian. Any opinions or suggestions would be much appreciated.

I think it'll be fine, now just don't look at 'em every day! :smile:

It's not that it hurts anything, just adds frustration... Try and forget 'em for at least 3 or 4 days so that when you do look, there's really noticeable progress instead of slight changes. More satisfaction that way. :smile:

Brainrape from yahooka and bluelight?

Anyway yea, I looked at mine everyday, and I believe do to THIS as a main factor, ALL of my jars got contamed.

I was picking them up, taking pics, breathing on them. Definately a BIG nono, and as a first timer, I learned.

You don't HAVE to keep them locked away for a month, but what could it hurt checking on it only once every 5 days or so?

Also don't handle the jars too much, and DEFINATELY dont breath on them!

Wash your hands with anti-bacterial soap before opening the cardboard or handling them!@

yeah, that's what i was thinking.... i MIGHT contam the jars if i keep molesting them. Another problem is that the tin foil on top of the jars getting torn because there's pointy parts of the lid where i punched holes before boiling. i'm not sure if i should replace the tin foil or just use duct tape and cover the tin foil with it.

Invest a dollar or two in a small thermometer and put it where you are keeping the jars, then just check it occasionally to help ease your worries. I know the top of my computer can get pretty hot so I would check with a thermomter before leaving your jars there.

yah, my old computer could get pretty hot too, but i specifically bought a case with a side venting turbine style fan so overheating wouldn't be an issue.. the primary heat source for the top of my computer is the power supply, which hasn't been getting too hot lately.
