yeah there is one room in the house where pets arent allowed. i dont think i would stick with it if i had to wear surgical masks and stuff(just out of my realm for things i want to do) a little work isnt bad though. ps, and i am only bald by choice about half the time,lol. ill take the extra measures but if it really turns out to be so hard, i'll leave it to the proffesionals and read about it.:bow:

i don't print anywhere near contams,
my lab hasn't had a contam in it in years.
2 different rooms/places,
don't grow in the lab.

what about choosing a strain because of its ability to grow regardless of contamination? Is printing not an option? is cloning possible still?

no such thing as a contam-proof strain
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 have a walk in closet committed solely for lab purposes since i have four cats. is this fine? i was thinking of getting an ionizer too. i have only went through a bout of contams this week and its a black mold not trich. but i do see cat hairs in my popcorn jars all the time and they colonize fine. have even seen some hairs on casings but i just gently pick it out

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.
:horse:




interesting observation

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

combining form
trich/o

meaning
hair



coincidence? i think not

i dint make the conection till i read this thread, thanks for the heads up

might be worth testing if pasteurised hair is just as prone.
just a thought
