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?

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.

      Yum, the bottom looks like it's full of bacteria hence the gooey looking grains, and if it takes 2 months to get to that weak looking myc then something is wrong. With GT it should look more like a big cotton ball. 
    • DonkeyHote
      It looks ok to me. I would proceed to the next step of your tek. I assume you're going to mix with a bulk substrate.
    • AmySorg
      So I bought two grain spawn bags (from shroom supply). They took forever to grew the mycelium (almost two months). The first one was very weird so I just threw it away (sadly). The Second one is weird so I'm not sure if I should proceed with it.    There's white all over it but it doesn't look like mycelium but it doesn't look like mold either.    Can you guys help me please? 
    • Sonshyn
      So the tek says you need an oven bag with a blue ship about 1/3 from the bottom  of the bag, and a tyvek patch 2/3 of the way to the top of the bag that you tape on or use rtv.    My my question is it says to cover the patch with foil so the tyvek doesn’t get wet ... so just tape some foil over the patch or???

      The 2 kits I tired had straw substrate. The first kit I had dozens of pins that stalled and one clump that grew quite nice. Big, tall, healthy specimens. I had some mold issues that ruined the 2nd one entirely. The pic I attached was early on kit 1.  Since I bought those kits, I've started reading and researching on this site and a few others. I've now got a few jars of grain PC'd and innoculated. I'm on day 3. I have all the other supplies as well and it cost me less than what the kits cost. HOPEFULLY, I'm on the verge of doing small bulk batches.  Stropharia Cubensis Cuban is the strain that was in the colonized jar that shipped with the kit and I managed to keep some of the spawned grain from it that I've used for the other jars I've started. My own version of g2g, I suppose.  I quite liked the strain, very mellow an warm, not too potent.
