Bubbling your LC: airport in action
Posted 11 October 2005 - 08:11 PM
I made a lid. i put 4 holes in it then put silicone over holes on both sides and allowed to dry for 24 hours. I then made my syringes i took a bunch of polyfil and stuffed it into 2 syringes and packed it down to make the filters then i took 1 syringe and siliconed an air tube into it to automat the process instead of blowing on one end(it makes it easier when bubbling the solution later) and i let it sit for 48 hours to totally let it dry it wasn't totally dry after 24 hours.
I started my LC by using a 250ml jar, i put 100ml water in the jar and 1 tablespoon of vanilla extract. i then put the lid on the jar seal side down b/c i want the jar to have a tight seal but left the ring loose on the jar. PC at 15 P.S.I. for 30 min then after PC i released the pressure from my cooker by the release valve and while hot i tightened the ring to keep seal. let cool. i then took a cotton swab with alcohol on it and put it over the hole and pierced it with one of the syringes to kill the vacuum in jar(or else it will suck all your spore syringe into the jar). i then used the same cotton swab and pierce through the silicone with my spore syringe. and allowed to grow. every 4 days i would stick my 2 syringes in to the holes. i put the non airtube syringe in first then the airtube one tipped the jar on its side and turned the pump on. the reason i like the air pump is that you can watch it bubble through the solution but also make sure you don't blow any into the other syringe.

If you bubbled every 4 days, how old are they now from the time you injected the spores?

here are the pics of me bubling my LC so as you can see in the second pic or maybe not, i keep the second syringe above the LC and bubbles that come from the pumping of air into LC
now i am going to leave it until i move then i'm going to do alot of jars and see what happenes. i'm not sure if i should do a grow log in the other section or just start a new tek cause what i want to do is 1 dozen jars. six i am going to put a silicone seal on the other six i am going to leave the holes open and see how each of the jars go so hippie or whoever else what should i do a grow log or a tek?
