My ghetto ass sterile chamber for inoculation. Lol. Took a cardboard box and put trash bags on the inside with lots of gorilla tape, then sprayed down with lysol and 91% isopropyl alcohol and did my inoculations in there.

Here's the view from the inside.

I'm hoping that location was sterile enough. I'm sure it's not the best possible way but i bet others have done a much poorer job and succeeded, so hopefully i will too! Only time will tell. =D
