my chambers
    #1068071 - 11/20/02 12:20 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

my incubater is a 14 gal rubbermaid container with a heating pad that keeps the temp at 86* constantly

my fruiting chamber is a 18 gal rubbermaid container with the center of the lid (80%) cut out and a piece of plexiglass refitted and sealed with plumbers calk. The outside has a 40 watt florecent suspended over the plexiglass. The inside has a metal thermos filled with distilled water with a fishtank heater inside that when combined with another heating pad keeps a constant 78* it is filled 1/4 inch with presoaked pearl lite. I fan 4 times daily but do not mist do to the condensation that is always present from the thermos


can I get opinions on the set ups ways to improve.

B.T.W. this is all with the pf cake tek.

If you never have to leave it for more than one day it sounds good, but if I were you I would try and move on to casings next time.

casings seem like the solid way to go also.

maybe you can have some sort of air exchange thing so you can leave it for days at a time.

is your house that cold that you need a heater to keep it at 72?
your setup is awesome. cheap and efficient. i messed up and spent a lot of money on stupid stuff that was either unnecessary or ended up breaking.

BTW what are you setting your cakes on?

belive it or not this is my first grow and everything involved I already owned with only a few things needed. and I learned how to pit it all together with the help of these fourms and yes it is that cold I live kind of close to the artic circle and the heating pads are needed.
