Straight coir can work, coir with verm fluffs better. Use I use at least 20 percent. I like the lower holes near substrate level. GE/FAE at substrate level encourages pinning.


If i see some verm I suppose i will grab some. I just scored a new job so why not?

Did you mean 20% spawn to 80% sub? Or verm to coir?

I'm pretty sure he meant 80/20 coir/verm, usually spawn/sub ratios are typed out like this- 1:2 spawn/sub(1 part spawn to 2 parts sub) but some people use a 1:4 sp/sub ratio.

Just wanted to double check, so I did not make a silly mistake. Thank you!

The Agar dishes I had going, well, trying to save them.. They filled with a clear, nasty bacteria (i think it was bacteria) that smelled like new born baby diapers. It was no good, terrible, bad, awful, and pungent in all the above categories haha.

I think just inhaling the dish to sniff it made me sick, because I woke up the next morning, and BOOM sinus and lung infection. Maybe I'm paranoid, maybe it's coincidence. The syncronicity is definitely odd.

Would it be smart to wear a surgical mask for examining contam??

I've never sniffed an agar plate. Not sure I would reccomends it. You should be able to recognize mycelium and transfer. Or at least potential mycelium.

This was definitely something muuuuch different, slimy, not woven in appearance like mycelium.
