'Nother Straw Tek ?
    #987296 - 10/23/02 07:10 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Ive got a small box of straw and spawn going and want to know if i should poke holes in the plastic wrap cover for air exchange. the small tub is sitting in a terrarium with some jars. i'm paranoid about any contam with the straw - the jars seem fine - but don't know if straw tek requires air exchange...

thanks

buddha bless you

Yes it needs air exchange. Any straw tek you read will tell you to perforate the plastic. Did you actually follow a tek or are you just winging it?

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

I read different teks, yes, but there is so much variance and information it becomes close to a headache to piece together some sense of a consistent method. i thought i read somewhere that there should be some air exchange, then i went back and searched and now i'm reading that you may want a buildup of CO2, but then that may depend on the size of the container in which case.., etc, etc, or the teks dont mention it or....

so i end up asking straight simple questions at particular junstures in my friends experiments just to get some current consensus.

not that i dont appreciate the wealth of info, it just gets to be a bit much sometimes.

so, thank you for the response. means a lot.

Ah, i see. Went searching again. Ive been using threads detailing Old Timers Tek, not checking back to the bulk teks in the grow/find where perforation is recommended...
