I was knocking up all my tins with slurry and when I got to my last tin I had a drop of sweat roll off my eyebrow into the substrate right after knocking it up, I wanted to yell , cry and toss it, but idk whats going to happen now. lol so I just went about my business and left it for colonizing. Will it be ok? im not really sure what to think about it, I took a shower beforehand. If anything id assume that spot might not grow? Or grow something nasty. Ill watch it and see what happens.

Keep an eye on it. You might be all right if it was well pasteurized.

Agreed.. I wouldn't worry about it too much. Sweat itself is sterile, it's the bacteria it picks up off your skin and if you said you showered, I wouldn't lose sleep over it... some people mix their tubs with ungloved hands and are fine... I'd wear gloves personally, but I think you'll be alright.

Yes, always wear gloves when doing any myco-chores.

Haha, well everything's looking good so far, fuzziness has started to come back within 12 hours, should start to go into full growth later today. Im hoping this works out as this is straight BRFS to coco, im skipping the grain spawn part as I want to see what I can get, going from BRFS to coco skips about a week's worth of extra colonizing for the grain. Im aware I might only get 1 good flush but thats really all I need im not doing commercial cultivating.

Everything seems to be fine, I can not believe to my eyes how quickly this slurry works, less than 48 hours and the entire tin surface is covered in snow. The one that seems quicker is the spent promix from my personal MMJ grow. I recycle my soils with vermicomposting so it seems to be a viable more of a wild option for cubes.

Yeah, and i'd say that the bacteria on your forehead are adapted to eating dead skin cells, skin oils, and sweat.  THey wouldn't know what to do in soil, manure, and grains.

Every tin is covered so Im guessing im fine. Im happy to see the 3 year old composted promix is doing the best. If that's a viable option, then it saves me money from having to buy soil strictly for cubes, I can just use the soil I compost for my MMJ. ive got 6 different tins with different mixes so im just testing some theories. the ones with worm castings seem to be happier and the spent promix has tons of other soil amendments from over the years. scraps, dry ferts, manure, its all been composted in with the promix. Now ill just give the tins a few more days and see what the yields are.

I think as long as you add castings or some sort of dung (I like Black Kow--composted cow manure) to your soil mix, you should be fine.

 

Glad to hear they are moving along nicely.

Texas you can rest assured that nothing bad can happen with just a drop or so from your body. Why, sometimes I have even wept into my substrate and all went according to plan. I do not recommend making excuses for such behavior since tears are totally unacceptable anyway, but I couldn't help myself since I was chopping onions for supper while doing some work. I like to multitask when it should not be done.

Put a nice drop of sweat onto a plate of agar and tell me nothing bad can happen.

Tears aren't acceptable? Lol

What are you even on about, m8?


EDIT: I agree with MLBjammer and Fhatster tho... you're likely totally fine... just disagreeing that "nothing bad can happen from just a drop or so from your body"...

All these Texans and the mention of alcohol reminded me of one of my favorite bands in the world, performing the song "alcohol"
