Cultivation / Re: Can't Classify This Contaminant Need Help
« on: February 03, 2010, 09:46:47 PM »
I Bought A Hepa And UV Germ Killing Air Sanitizer, Does anyone Know if These are effective at all? I purchased all new stuff and everything is getting cleaned with a bleach solution and Ousted before being brought into the new room. I 'm going to clean the whole house tomorrow and Probably set everything up after an OCD thorough cleaning.   Wish me Luck!

I had left the house today for about 5 hours, when I returned the growths had visibly expanded on both the quarantined cake and the ones in the fruiting chamber. So I packed everything up and threw the FC and all into the dumpster. I have six Alacabenzi cake about ready to be birthed so I need to get a new FC, Perlite, Air Stones and Hydrometer. I refuse to risk Losing more cakes to this ghost mold. I'm going to sanitize another room in my house For my new set up Cause I'm Sure that mold sporalated all over my other room. It really sucks to have to buy new gear but even worse is losing cakes that I waited for so long to colonize and seemed to be 100% healthy. Thank you guys for helping me make the call. Anything I can do to prevent that shit from getting on my other cake I will do. Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!

The yellowish brown spots started to show up after the cake had been in the fruiting chamber a day. I'm not sure what it is and I'm still hoping its metabolites, Its only on the top of the cakes and they've been in FC for 3 days now. I quarantined the worst one, growths started out kind of gel like, now the whole top of cake has a light yellow hue. I wiped it with a q tip and there was no residual color transfer. No odd smell. I could really use some experienced eyes on this one. I've searched everywhere to no avail. The strain is Mazapatec.

Cultivation / Too Sanitary (Lysol or Oust)
« on: January 04, 2010, 10:54:08 AM »
I know using too much lysol and other air sanitizer can be extremely harmful to your lungs and brain but has it ever significantly effected anyones grow in a negative way ( that they know of). Has anyone had issues with Lysol or Oust overuse ruining a grow/causing it to fail( killing spores, myc,etc)? I think I got out of control with the stuff. Just Curious

Hey thanks for the feedback. The cakes are doin really well and I'm starting to see pins. I damn near cried when i saw the little guys pokin out to say wasup. I was simply in a state of shear relief. Not that my advice matters but just for the hell of it if anyones getting the itch to fruit  their cakes before there done, save yourself the stress and worry, let em get strong. I got lucky I think and I'm stoked because of it./Volumes/NO NAME/DCIM/102_PANA/P1020154.JPG

Cultivation / Looking into using horse poo as substrate
« on: December 26, 2009, 08:25:18 PM »
All my research as far as substrate goes has pointed to cow and horse poo as being the most natural and all around best substrate for cubes. I live near a place  that has frequent horse traffic in a public desert park area, no one would miss it if  I took a little so..... I 'll continue to research different teks on the matter and sterilization methods does anyone have a step by step that they could pass on. I'd love to check it out. Thanks for all the previous replies on other posts  I really appreciate it.!

Cultivation / Having Trouble With Rye and PF Tek
« on: December 26, 2009, 06:43:19 PM »
I grew some nice PF cakes and fruited them they are doing really well( I'm so grateful !) so I decided to try my luck with rye, It failed, I followed all the steps of RR's Rye tek and I was overly paranoid about contamination so I cleaned the whole kitchen sanitized everything and still no dice, no myc grew, (I used my PC 15psi 1:30)there was a sort of odd cooked rye smell after a week in incubation. I persisted, cleaned everything and went back to basics figuring I got a little ahead of myself. So i did the PF tek again, I was aseptic through the entire process beginning to end( I followed the Grow-Buddy PF tek like i did with my first batch ) ( the syringes i used on both the  Rye tek and PF were about 4 months old there were little black floating dots in the syringes i assume are the spores) Its been  about five days and not a spec of growth in the PF jars. I ordered 4 more syringes from a different vendor and a sterile bag but I can't afford to waste anymore money and I love Mycology I want to succeed but I need help, I don't even know what questions to ask cause I don't know what I did wrong, my first run through worked so why these flops,  please somebody help me save my project! :ph34r: feedback Is greatly appreciated.

Cultivation / Fruiting almost fully colonized cakes
« on: December 17, 2009, 11:27:53 PM »
My cakes have taken nearly two months to almost fully colonize. I jumped the gun and put them in the Fruiting chamber. I didn't dunk. No contaminants as of yet. Its my first grow and I just got impatient, but I'll accept the consequences whatever they may be. I was just wondering if anyone had any experience having success fruiting 95% colonized PF cakes. >>>>>>> Also started My first batch of Rye jars Followed RR's Rye Tek. Jars all looked good. I Inoculated them 4 days ago Temperature may have been too low( I Just put them in an Incubator today), but there is no sign of mycelia growth, also no visible contaminants, Not visibly too dry or too wet, and No broken seed( My Rye berries are indeed organic) Any feedback Is greatly Appreciated!
