Greetings all! I've had an interest in this subject for a time now, this Christmas I decided to give myself a gift and get into a hobby. (Last year my son asked me why Santa didn't get me anything) Anyways I did fall for the old grow kit thing while doing my research before I dug deeper. I got a nice tote out of the deal. I've decided after spending time reading on the forums to start with agar. I purchased gt/b+/tc/aa+ spores. On 12/28 I inoc'd 27 dishes and on 12/31 another 28. So far I've got 1 for sure green contam, 2 that have the mycelium starting but possibly other stuff going on and a few with just a few bright white spots starting. Seeing Bod do his thing on youtube and reading MMGG (page 29) inspired me to build a SAB, I did the inoculations with the box half built but it was a stuggle due to the height pouring the agar with the 500ml media. So I don't any questions but feedback would be welcome on the box. Most of the material I had and I had a really fun time building and using the box. I'm so far enjoying the process this hobby/art has to offer and the personalities of the people I've read and see online seem all like really awesome people. So thanks to all the people that have been contributing and lending their experience to anyone thats willing to listen. Back to research for me. The box as I did the inoculation, busted arm holes I had to wrap in tape The lower box after I fixed the arm holes and put sliding covers so I can close up to take a pee break or whatever. Box is only 8.5 inches tall inside so I have to use smaller bottles inside. Also hot ass AGAR bottles do create some condensation on the ceiling. Full setup with the top piece on. The glass on top of the lower shelf is the same one that goes on the top/front of the full box. That just lays on the top, so I can load up the box the way I like it, then spray my disinfectant and wait. Second piece is another 20 inches taller so 29 inches or so is the height on the back wall. Thanks for taking a minute to have a look. I'm pretty excited about this process I've decided to engage in. I've been doing a lot of the spirit searching type stuff and I'm very excited to try the heroic dose with my set and setting and with my own babies I've played with from spore to agar to fruit. My kit did come with predone brf cakes but I'm wanting to try the shoebox pretty bad. Since I've only just done agar I have some time to make those decisions I suppose.
