This is the key to avoiding failure. I don't know how many thousands of (sterile) catheterized urine samples I've taken from uncooperative (resisting) confused old women over the years, but it must be hundreds or thousands. Prying those disgusting legs apart. (one reason among many, why I left my profession) Clean echnique/maintaining sterile fields are paramount to anything you do on this page, it's the key and the very reason why the pressure cooker is used.
totes are such good dirt containers, I need to get a truck load of dirt out of my rain forest floor out by my land. I'm so sick of paying $20 a bag for soil that substandard to what I have out there. Are you going to use that for growing mushrooms?
That, and just kinda stay away from it unless you need to mess with the heat. Wear oven mitts and heavy long sleeve clothing near it. If you wanna get real safety conscious a face shield even. Some simple precautionary measures should protect you from the worst they would do.
Yes, mushrooms is the name of the game in this thread:)totes are such good dirt containers, I need to get a truck load of dirt out of my rain forest floor out by my land.

Yea, I think the bigger concern with what your doing is not to get scalded. That can actually happen pretty easily, I suspect.
Well if we are posting mushroom related cat photos now...I'm always on about cats and cultivation and lights just going hand in hand... er... paw in leaf in photon..?
Well, mushrooms are no different.
Performing some cat voodoo on some spores I had just dropped to agar.
Also, put up another little blurb over on the personal cubensis thread.
Hope to get that rolling soon.
I love spitz breeds! Shepherds are so noble and impressive and lovey.
Cut it rite out of tyvek suite, used the hoodMy painter coveralls turned out to be polyproylene and not tyvek. The air seemed to move through jt a little too easily imho.
I picked up a pair of dupont tyvek 400 boot covers at the hardware store for $2.
@1diesel1 the material you are using for your fae holes appears to be from a polypropylene suit, not tyvek.
Im not sure if it really matters, maybe @beluga can share some insight here.. But i will say the tyvek seems to pass almost no air when you blow on it. The poly painter suit is like blowing through a metal coffee filter.
That sounds like the smart thing to do. Might be that all of ours are dupont or 3M. If the US does one thing right, it's plastics... until we're done with them.Interesting. My home hardware brand painter suit has a far looser weave and passes a lot more air than the dupont tyvek 400, even though both are polypropylene.
For culturing the spawn jars i think ill use the dupont one with the lesser airflow.
