Final questions...
    #967556 - 10/17/02 12:35 AM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Ok i finally got all my stuff today and decided to prepare the substrate today... i used regular water, although i had some trouble with water i didnt really know how much to use, PF tek for dummies just said a little so when you tint the bowl only tiny bit of water comes out of vermucalite...the substrate was kinda wet but not too wet like it wasnt toooooo wet :smile: i don't know if you get it...

Also i covered the 4 holes i made with a little nail with a regular transparent tape... and i also put some aluminum on top of covers on the top of the jar lids..
I can't really sterialize today so i was wondering if the substrate won't go bad over night?

The jar lids are kinda tight so i was wondering should i losen them when i start sterilizing the jars...or not...

does the hot steam supose to actually get inside the jars...couse right now they are preatty air tight...(tigh lid, tape and tin foil...)

I tried to be as clean as i could while preaparing the substrate...sprayed alotta lysor in my room washed my hands couple of times, used clean bown and spoon...

How can i check if my substrate is wet enough?

You can wait until tomorrow to sterilize. It won't go bad.

I've done it both ways and both ways worked, but you should follow your tek.

If you followed your tek it should be ok.

thanx guys for quick replies...one more question when time comes to inculating the jars can i just pierce the tape with a nidle and inculate or do i have to take the tape off and inculate?

jars don't seem to be too wet nothing moves there so i guess the water amount is alright...

i did some research and i guess if they will be too dry i can inculate them with some water or some beer :smile: ...

i prepared 10 jars...home to get atleast half of them growing...
