Cultivation / Potential Grow
« on: August 28, 2008, 10:02:50 AM »
I'm in the planning stages of a grow and was hoping someone with more experience could make sure I'm not screwing up in some disastrous way. Forgive me for any newbish mistakes/lack of grasp of technical jargon.

Colonization:
For my first grow I figured to start off small. I ordered two of these containers (http://www.universityscientific.com/product.php?xProd=21&xSec=5) (which I'm now regretting that I didn't start with the PF-trek, also there are some reports that the website may be a scam/false advertising). These jars are purportedly self sufficient, has anyone had any experience with them? My main concern with this stage is heat. The ambient temp of my house could very easily drop below 70 in the coming months, but should be ~72 most of the time. Is that sufficient or would a heater be necessary?

EDIT:
Well I think I'm going to ditch the jars and go with the PF tek (http://www.fungifun.org/English/Pftek). My colleague in this endeavor believes that the tin foil/inoculation technique "screams" contamination, does anyone have any assurances to offer, and more importantly what are our chances for contam if we follow the guide exactly? Also is there any substitute for the pressure cooker?
