Nevermind, i sell crickets at the bait store
Question.. 1.Are all cloudy LCs contamed?
Whats the tipping point tint in the cloud or is it always clear when its good?
2. How hard do you spin it?
3. Whats better, distilled or spring or rain water or coconut water?
4.Whats better, honey, karo, malt x and whats the difference between the 3?
Can i have my LC completely sealed and spinning it with no hole?
Can contam LC be used to innoculate brf mixed with pottingsoil outside and end up trich free?
Lol soo many questions and no answers! Well I have heard contams on LC is the hardest to see so that may be why people are avoiding this thread... people always say best bet is LC to agar for checking as even the clearest can still harbor contams... guess you could do lc to small grain like 4 oz jar then g2g to qrt right?
As for stirring you really want to break it up the best you can people put glass shards or a marble or any object in their jars so when they swirl it breaks it apart more... the more mates the better. Some say swirl every other day some say 3 times a day lol depends on what your doing. I notice after 5 days no shake it get pretty damn thick...
Distilled water is always best as it's clear and free of all minerals right? Never thought of coconut water that may be ingenious as we use coir for substrate right! I'll have to try that! I got away with filtered tap water but it's a lil cloudy... but nice healthy mycelium!
Had Karo light so I used that... heard honey is tough as its color isnt consistantly the same but I think it's the best or worst for contams not sure I think honey is contam resistant but dont quote that lol... malt may work as it give the lc plenty of nutrients but not sure sorry...
As for no Fae on jars I have heard people do it and it.makes swirling way easy as you can just shake their fucking nuts off... the guy said he just opens it in SAB and knocks and closes up tight and hasn't had problems...
As for Trichoderma not surviving outside I dont know if that's true as that shit is resilient but it is always worth a try if you have a spot to dump spent and contaminated substrate into... people have always reported getting a few fruits and they actually get nice and large outside as it is where they want to be right lol...I am actually testing this right now I started some oyster in a cardboard box and top got light spots of Trichoderma so I mixes together with potting soil and place outside... it may be a few months but I'll let you know how it works out. Hope I have answered something for ya maybe others with knowledge will chime in!
I know, right, i get crickets, thanks for the reply
People fear LC!
