it would not be wise to do so because of leaks from the lid non laminar flow issues. the plastic bag will never have a leak inwards that will cause contam. and you can just fold it up and stick it in a closet :)

yea absolutley, if you're crafty enough to do it and not mess everything up :P  i thought you meant like make a FH out of a plastic tote at first. This would definately work with a GB.

Lets take her for a spin with a little agar work :D Need to test a culture. The common tams in my house are aspergilus flavus, aspergillus niger, and some species of pennicilum. So long as I dont see any of those or bacteria this baby works (it does work I have used them before). This particular syringe is suspected of possibly being contaminated with dactylium mildew (cobweb mold).

 

Lets find out

Ok the jar on the left is the control jar. I did not noc it, I am just going to leave it open for 20 min. The jar on the right I inoculated with the syringe. The jar inoculated with the syringe will show growth much faster than the control jar (if it gets contaminated) because it looks like the syringe already had germinated.

Do you leave a slit for air to flow out of so you can see what your doing or just try and look through the bag.

I am going to pick up the materials needed for this. I have wanted a flowhood for sometime but could never bring myself to part with the cashola.

Yeah, thats what I figured. I just imagine trying to cut out small sectors of agar to isolate a strain might be harder to see.

Very cool. I bet I can guess which strain you are testing. How long does it take before you will know?

the filters are right by the air purifiers.

 

you can just order it off walmart.com that will be way easier

I will probably order online as it can be difficult to get me in and out of places because of the electric chair. Thanks dude. DM

The only filters on walmart.con I can find are max 99.97.

However, my pc is broke and i can only search on mobile. Not sure if that mmakes a diff.

Also, holmes.com doesnt seem to have the one in the pic.

      Appreciate the info, brother.😉 Now, you've got me thinking. And that's not always a good thing.

      I am confused on this comment. When the mushrooms grow they won’t all grow at the same time. I am confused. I don’t pick them pick right before the vail breaks and before they release spores. Can u explain the answer a little more for this newbie?  Thank ya!!

      Hooray, I can finally chip in!  Let me start right out by saying: this is a very cool idea. I have been musing for a while on how to create a cubensis growth system that places psilocin production under positive selective pressure, without having to actually assay every individual, and what you've come up with is by far the best route I've considered. I definitely think it's worth a try. I'm not as sure as you that psilocin / psilocybin are actually involved in the HSR; I think it's just as likely that it's the increased trp flux that improves heat tolerance through downstream components, and the increased psiloc* levels are just a simple consequence of more trp. Regardless... the question is how to actually translate this idea into a selective program. This is where I have to do more reading, as my experience is that this is quite organism-specific. I think the most ground would be covered by multiple cycles of mutagenesis-growth-selection, but the specifics of mutagen and selective pressure are very hand-wavy right now. But in summary -- nice find!

      Ouch, glad you're ok. I've worked in both microbiology and cell biology labs. In micro they flame and don't use gloves. In cell biology they use gloves (and a shitload of 70% EtOH) and don't flame.  Never the two shall meet -- I've been reliably told that a Class II cabinet + fire => a very bad time.
