Roadkill's tek ala automation
    #1058529 - 11/16/02 06:43 PM (14 years, 23 days ago)

A few questions:
Would it be necessary to humidify (ultrasonic) after casing poo in a large rubbermaid?
In conjunction w/ the humidifier, would an air pump on for 1 hr. 3x/day, or whaterver schedule, be enough for air exchange?
Thanks for any help.

You don't need the humidifier for humidity, if you simply mist the walls down and fan at least 3 times a day, you'll be cool.

Do not use a humidifier. When you have casings fruitings in a chamber, you must consider the amount of substrate to the volume of the container. If you are using all of the space of the fruiting chamber then that much substrate will provide sufficient humidity. Now if you have alot of unused floor space within your chamber then you will have to consider an efficient humidity method. Use all of the floor space possible otherwise you will need to help boost humidity.

When you say in a large rubbermaid, do you mean you have substrate directly in a large container/chamber? If so, then you definitly should not consider a humidifier.

Whatever the case dont overdue it. Many ppl overdue it and that is just plain overkill. Some chambers dont need a humidifier only perlite. And in other cases perlite is not enough help and a humidifier is needed. And some only need as little as a few sprays to the wall.

And keep it simple. A humidifier is rare really necassary and IMO airpumps are a waste of time and money, totally unnecassary.

A humidifier is rare really necassary (if casing)

It took me two attempted casings to figure this out. I started growing with cakes and pumping in ultrasonic mist every few hours with great results. When I switched to casings, I would get massive pinning, but nothing would grow. The pins would just hang out and eventually cobweb would move in and consume everything. Once I turned off the humidifier everything started working properly again.

Don't really mean to bump, just wanted to give thanks for the advice.
