i don't print anywhere near contams,
whats the best way of printing when trich is present? any precautions different from typical prints
my lab hasn't had a contam in it in years.
2 different rooms/places,
don't grow in the lab.

many things are 'possible'
yet not advisable.
i would not clone from any contam'd tray either.
the best option when you know your print is likely contam'd
involves transferring to agar, multiple times,
to isolate good clean mycelia for lc to spawn , etc.

i've noticed that, on close examination,
almost all my incidents of trich involve
a hair that has fallen on the casing surface.
so i did an experiment-
i placed some wet coir in a bucket
and placed a few hairs on it.
sure enough, the normally very contam-resistant coir soon developed a patch of trich near one hair
and some cobweb mold near another.
so might i suggest that
folks should wear hair nets or shower caps, etc.
when working with their projects
and keep an eye out for any loose hairs.
i recently went to school to become an EMT and in the chapter of our text book that went over medical terms i cam across this
coincidence? i think not
i dint make the conection till i read this thread, thanks for the heads up
