Cultivation / lighting distance

Cultivation / harvesting spores?
« on: June 10, 2010, 01:17:56 PM »
so i clipped a couple caps today and im just trying to make sure what i did should work....... soaked a 1/2 pint jar in bleach/water solution washed, sprayed with lysol, and washed again then clippied caps wearing gloves sterilized all tools etc. but do caps have to be open to where they are almost flattend out or once the tissue completely dies will it drop spore no matter what because theese caps were still pretty domed but gills were clearly visible....... anyways set them gills down in the jar, put a little micro filter pad and coffe filter over top the rubber band around it then put in window sill ..... will this be okay?

Cultivation / pasteurization f**k up
« on: June 04, 2010, 03:41:23 PM »
so i was pasteurizing some poo/straw and got focused on something else, but i let the temp get up past 180 for a bit to long i think and went more into sterilization. i know with poo/straw its better to pasteurize rather the sterilize but is this mix still usable? the tek that i was specifically reading said not to let it get that high, so should i scrap and start over or can it be salvaged with just a lesser result?

Cultivation / rh control?
« on: May 30, 2010, 10:57:27 AM »
okay so i have around twenty pins on my first cake ......... 64 quart tub , 40 watt air pump going to two air stones and about 3-4 inches of perlite( just enough to cover the air stone.............. my hygrometer is reading 99% right now and i reading that that is good for pinning but one pinning is intiated i need to drop it to 90-95%. anyways my question is how can i lower the rh level ive tried leaving the lid cracked to c if maybe an extra hole or few would work out but got no difference, i have tested the calibration of my meter with salt in a shot glass deal and its seems to work so where do i go from here?

Cultivation / strain isolation?
« on: May 10, 2010, 05:24:08 PM »
when isolating a strain is done only by creating LC or taking the myc. and replicating it or can i just wait for fruiting and harvest spores from the biggest fastest growing caps?

Cultivation / rh for icubation?
« on: May 06, 2010, 01:46:11 PM »
ive done some searching and havent really found a definitive answer, but i was wondering if a certain Rh level is crucial for incubation? although my common sense( or lack of....... either one) tells me it is not due to the fact that being in the jar creates the environment needed to colonize if someone could just tell me either yes i am correct or no and gimme the correct level i need to be looking for that would be great
