Show me your world
Just thought I’d share what my “mycology lab” looks like and ask everyone who has pictures, any pictures. of there “lab”, wheather it be big or small, to share with me by posting them here
Welcome To my World
The Work Table
Shelf of Goodies
Dual Incubation Chambers (foam coolers)
Fan Drying Setup (the bottom piece has holes in to allow air to get by)
Desiccant Chamber (It needs work, I know)
Rye Grain Incubation Chamber (Heated by fish tank heater)
Pf Jar Incubator (heated same as previous)
WIP for a Dung Colonization Box
Cased Sliced Cake Tray that SHOULD start pinning soon!
Better shot of Cased Sliced Cake Tray. PIN DAMN YOU!
Positive Pressure Glove Box (AKA: Miracle Box)
Top view of Miracle Box (it is dirty because I just ued it)
Another shot of Miracle Box
Sterilized 50/50+ mix for Quick Patching
Leftover Mycelium “Experiments”
It’s a pin on the second experiment, not bad for just putting mycelium in a plastic bowl , adding some casing to the top and ignoring for a few weeks.
THE MYSTERY BOX?!?! (Seriously... I can't remember whats in this box)
Pasteurized bag of dung, with Photoshop enhancement so you can actually see the dung instead of just blackness... spawned this tonight

my place is all in a mess, kinda on hold right now with the holidaze coming. unlike alot of folks here, i'm forced to hide my efforts, as we have too many friends and family in and out to have a nice big lab like that, although i have in the past. but since i got married i've gotten back into stealth and secrecy, hit and run.
that's one reason i'm playing around with agar and strain isolation right now, it doesn't take much room to hide and when i do get ready to grow a batch next time i hope to make every one count.

I'm lucky enough to have a small room dedicated to my mycological experimentation. I still gotta take the legs off of one side of that table and drill em onto just one peice of it, it's hard to get around in that tiney closet space of a room with the table in there.
Oh and an update on the tupperware casing, it now has about 10 pins formed. I did this casing about a half a week before I did the cake casing thats in the bin with the broken up remains of a cake I used to innoculate some rye grain jars so I'll give it till the weekend to pin before I start cold shocking the crap out the cake casing in the bin.
Oh and just a random note.. the FIRST casing I did in the beggining of september and dunked a couple of weeks ago is starting to pin once again for it's 7th flush, after it was sprayed down with an h202/water mix to get rid of the cobweb mold that had formed on the top of it. Mycelium is quite amazing.

this is my little "magic box".
hovering above my tank
from the front, my tank, with lid, cool mist humidifier, and PVC pipes. it was in my sister's room because she went to college, nobody ever went in there so the air was pretty still, i thought that would be a good area.

Damn that big ole' thing for that little tank!
you can prolley run that to about 10-15 more of those tanks. How long are the time intervals it runs? Its a pretty neat setup, I like the concept.

well at first i had it on: an hour on/2 hours off. but the fruiting wasn't what i wanted, so i ran it constantly, then everything popped up in a few days. i have a good lenght of tubing. you can see the tube coming out of the humidifier, make a left, then go straight down, but you can't see the tube (once it gets inside)go right and extend all of the way across the tank. i drilled holes about 4 inches apart on this stretch of tube. i really didnt expect it to make a difference but i felt like going the extra bit. i also had a hole drilled on the bottom of the tube at the very end with a hanging cup to catch the water if the condesation in the tube built up. it never did. i dont know if i just got a bad humidifier, but it worked well when it was on 24 hours a day. i know that was a bit of description, if i didnt make myself clear and you actually want to know what i did just tell me.i would be happy to tell more.

Nice, I like this post. I wanted to respond to it a long time ago, but now I think I know how to post pics. I'm glad to hear I'm not the only slob. I feel weird posting what I have, compared to some stuff I've seen here, I suck. But seeing as how this has only been my new hobbie for just over 3 mos., and I'm a chick who sews, not a carpenter, I am proud of my little operation.

hey wildflowergirl1, you shouldn't be so modest about your setup. it outdoes the one i've seen by about 10x, in terms of general awesomeness (lack of jimi hendrix vinyl, equipment, etc). if you could only see the ghetto fan setup. good work.
