    #1112422 - 12/05/02 03:22 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Well this is gonna be my first grow attempt starting tommorow, im gonna be using a cheese grator to grate my cakes into casing in 4 black containers that take up approx 2/3 of the aquarium.. the other 1/3 is going to be left for electrical shit...
Im going to have perlite under the black boxes and using a h2o2/water bubler system, i also have a water heater in a jar for extra humidity and i plan on fanning approx 3 times a day... how does it look?

sorry the pictures are so brutal...

.....if you dont like my fire dont come around, cause im gonna burn one down.....

It looks good. I hate to rain on your parade, but cakes don't need anywhere near that much humidity (perlite and a bubbler), infact, too much moisture can be detrimental. I know you are excited, but that's no reason to go nutso, when there are much cheaper and easier ways of doing it. Sorry if it sounds like bad news, but it just seems like you did alot of unecessary work.

I use self-contained terrarium/casings.
I only grow on bulk tubs now with a seperate see through lid for each tub.
I have no terrariums or any loose parts.
I have a seperate incubator , ala alien incubator.
And that`s it
My bulk containers cost me R20 - $2 , I have 6 of those.
Each with it`s own lid.
I fill them with dung/straw , spawn them, colonise and fruit.
All in the same container and all substrate being the size of the container.
At the most I spent maybe $20 in total for my entire setup.

Isn't it crazy how experience and set-up expenses seem to vary inversely?

Deffinatelly skikid.
As the exerience level rises you very quickly realise how far you can push the bubble to keep things cheap while still most effective.
I can only think of one other way to achive what I`m achieving and it will cost me atleast another 30-40 $
So I`ll stick with my room of bulk tubs in their own cosy chambers.
