Is this what you are talking about?

If so? In the pot bottom, place some polyspun landscape clothe, that will wick water (Home Depot / Lowes). Then place about an inch of perlite. Then, the substrate on top that. Then, spawn it.

Place the pot on something that will hold water. No more than about 1/4 inch. Then, place an inverted clear (Sterilite type) tub over the whole thing, to hold in humidity.

6T  :tongue:

yeah thats it. :grin: then do you run a cool mist or are you just getting enough rh from the casings them selves? also , do you mist at all or do they get all the moisture they need through the bottom?
thanks

If it is all (full pot, in shallow water dish) set in an upside down sterlite type tub. You do not need to add a coolmist. As it works just like a terrerium, by itself.

To automate the gizmo (little or no misting & fanning - if you do), simply get a cheap timer,  a cheap fish tank air pump & a few feet 1/4 in air line, plus a line connector (tropical fish store). Then find an inline air filter (also, tropical fish store), or cobble one togather (w/pvc pipe, line connectors, caps & stuffed with polyfil). The inline filter simply pumps cleaner air into the tub. Cleaner air is better.

Hook the line to the to the tub about midway up. Drill or poke a small hole on the other side of the tub (near the bottom), cover that hole with double filter disk material (or, whatever). This servers as a positive pressure outlet - for excess air pumped in.

Hook the thing all up (with inline air filter in place), hook the pump to the timer, set the timer to run 15 minutes, every 4 hours, to start. If that drops the rh to low (you can tell by how much condensation remains on the inside tub walls). Adjust air pump to run less minutes. Until you get it stabilized to maintain a high rh inside the tub.

There is no rule of thumb, on timing the air pump. As, the outside room temp & humidity differs -- everywhere. You just have to get it -- set. For the conditions -- you use it in.

For bigger yeilds. Simply use something like a 10 quart plastic dish pan (Dollar stores for $1) as a substrate container, in the same set/up.

6T  :tongue:

This was "cased" with 50/50++, at a pH of 7.5. The extra "+" is because a small % of "coir" was also mixed in.  6T :tongue:
