Part 1 : Unit 6 : Understanding Sterile Workflows
The first few steps of mushroom cultivation require very clean conditions, as close to sterile as possible. This is to ensure that spores and mycelium are allowed to grow in a competition free environment, with no other rogue fungi, bacteria or other contaminants. While a completely sterile environment is hard to achieve, you can reach almost sterile conditions with the help of a Still Air Box, and a good understanding of sterile workflows.
In this module we will discuss the procedures for selecting a good workspace and keeping it clean and ready for cultivation work. We will also discuss how to prepare and work your Still Air Box to achieve close-to-sterile conditions. Rinse up, scrub down and grab a spray bottle, we’re almost ready!
