So - my old methods ( spraying with disinfectant/bleach ) turn out to be inadequate for a hundred or so cultures, I found a live slime in the bin - it was quickly dispatched with a dose of bleach but that means things need changing. I tried just dumping everything into a vat of bleach, too messy by far and it means having a 5l bucket of bleach around.
I'll spare you the photos. New protocol for me - all my waste now goes into clear cellophane 2l bags, disinfectant is sprayed on and is kneeded into the waste ( the problem was the stuff not penetrating into large piles of oats ). Bags are changed once a day, old bags are kept for several days until I'm certain nothing is alive.
It stinks, it feels gross and it's disgusting but I'm using a kilo of oats a week so I need to be a lot sharper on my biosecurity. I'm not suggesting everyone should do this but if you're bulk growing it's a good idea - we don't want news stories about big slimes roaming the city.
Sounds cool! Not growing in bulk over here, but I'll keep that in mind if I ever do.
Just out of curiosity, how do you have your slime space laid out?
