PF - Tek / storing 50/50 mix
« on: January 03, 2010, 10:25:52 AM »
I'm sure it would probably be OK but figured u guys would know for sure... Can I keep sterilized 50/50 peat/verm in a container and close up that container real good and store it to use with my casings... every time I patch I'm having to make up new mix so just curious thanks:)

PF - Tek / casing and RH ?
« on: December 28, 2009, 11:04:03 PM »
Just went and bout a digital Fluker"s hygrometer, my humidity is way higher than I thought, at first I figured it was just the Fluker's but I put it in a bag with cap full of wet salt and sealed it for 4 hours.... it read 74% so was practically right on. . .   some of my caps on my casing was turning black so I used tweezers and pulled them because they where looking like they where starting to rot... and a couple of the caps looked like there sliced or not attached ( kinda weird) could this be due to my to high of humidity??? My FC with lava rock, with 14" bubble wand with no water in  it. I put large holes all the way around (except for bottom) to try and lower the RH, I have now even turned off the bubble wand to try and lower humidity... it is at 90% right now and I would like to get it to stay at 87% or so.... so do I just put more holes in the FC? sorry so long guys here's some pic to help.... thanks

just kinda curious about that one cap that is all blotchy looking, it was growing without a cap for a while so I imagine it is just the cap growing???

PF - Tek / casing ? and clean box?
« on: December 11, 2009, 12:56:51 AM »
going to go ahead and do the casing 101 and was wondering how much contamination comes into play? , is using a clean box advised since I do not have a hepa(yet) :huh:  going to use peat (potting soil based)/verm lime flour and oyster shells for acidic level.... now if it's a potting soil based peat then less lime and oyster is used to raise the acidic level? thanx  ^_^ oh and that tropic air works awesome both FC's are 99+ thanx for tip  ^_^

PF - Tek / questions about water logged brf 1/2 pint jars
« on: December 05, 2009, 08:57:12 PM »
k when I first got the pressure cooker didn't know exacly what I was doing and added a little to much water ended up with 6 heavily water logged jars.... been 25 days  jars appear to have stopped growing mycelium (or however you say it) they appear to be fully colonized but brown subtrate is still visible through out the cake here best pics I could get wait to birth??? thanx...

PF - Tek / slow colognization on bottom of jars
« on: December 04, 2009, 08:08:16 PM »
Bottom of jars where collognizing really slow so I too and fliped them upside down to let them slide down the jars some..... I think I read somewhere in a forum somewhere that said it was ok to do that..... once of my cakes bruised a little on side worried at first was mold but dissapeared over time.....  smart idea or bad idea?????
  Thanx guys

PF - Tek / poor man FC pics
« on: November 30, 2009, 01:19:27 PM »
K have a few different FC chambers done the Poor mans way, also going to try the shotgun FC humidity in FC RH is around 93-95%
Thinking of ordering the tropic air, could I use 1 tropic humidifier to help with the humidity in 3 of the chambers?? only need that extra 4 or 5 % to be optimal right???  oh and I also havn't mixed in any hydrogen peroxide and was reading forums and 1/100 or 1/150 ratio?? just ad straight to water or  do I need to remove perlite and soak inperoxide with water???? thanx. . .
here some pics to help diagnose :) all input is welcome and love ideas to help improve :)
( not sure how to upload to page but here link).....
(hope I did that link right)

PF - Tek / sonic humidifier
« on: November 27, 2009, 10:33:34 PM »
Started out making using a large rubbermaid container and hooking up the hoses to run through 3 different bottles to help with the water saturation in the air but was reading different forums about how they are proned to failure and decided to use smaller containers and perlit  with misting. . .  probally will hook up different system soon but was curious if letting the humidifier run in the room if it will help out with rh???   
    hey awesome forum really helped....... first time trying and so far super stoked wait sucks but hopefully totally worth it :)
  Thanks   moorhS
