Best way to Fruit
    #11158583 - 09/30/09 07:18 PM (8 years, 21 days ago)

So the children are rapidly approaching 100% so iam preparing for the fruiting process. This is my first time.

I have been following the PF tek instructions and havnt had a problem. But I just finished watching RR's videos and noticed he did some things different so have some questions.


PF says that for a fruiting chamber all i need is a box that i keep humidified and hand fan it every once in a while
RR has a box with tons of holes in it.
Which method is better/proffered?

Also RR says to use dunk and roll method for initial flush.
I was planning on just throwing them in fruiting chamber for first flush and then dunk and roll for further flushes.

So what do you guys do?

dunk and roll first flush, every flush- if they are pint jars, cut each cake in half with a clean knife, then dunk for 24 hours and roll in verm (sterilize the verm if you wish, but you dont have too)- the layer of verm really brings out the best in your mushies by providing an excellent microclimate at the fruiting surface- then you can place them in the FC- the shotgun (FC with lots of small holes)is a FC that delivers a greater fresh air exchange-if you have the time/desire to fan manually you dont need to make a shotgun type FC. After your verm covered cakes have sat in the FC for about an hour, spray down the cakes to wet the verm.  <--thats what i do, hope this helps :thumbup:

a Shotgun chamber also uses moist perlite in the bottom so when the Fresh air comes through the holes above the perlite it creates humidity.

So perlite not necessary in a enclosed (nonshotguned) chamber?

iam sure it would always help but is not a "have to have"?

This is is a good thread about the WHY, and the THEN the HOW.
DAMN I LOVE ALL CAPS! :headbanger:

...its called cO2.  Ever heard of it? yeah? ya might wanna look it up,
kuz from what I understand it sinks, and is created in the mycelium running process. So a tub with no holes in it, TRAPS that co2 and thats where molds(and bacteria) like to hang out, and do their thing.
So, in summary, I'd say, YES! the FAE is good for lil babies, so as it is coupled with, enough moisture, (obviously):commonsense: and some type of way to FULLY exchange any build up of Co2. Thanks for letting me share,

But for god sakes, BE CAREFUL! -and tell no one man-:fearandloathing:

Other than that, you're good :thumbup::stoned:

Built properly the SG has lots of FAE and humidity to much FAE is never overkill as long as the RH stays up. I wouldn't say that the SG is overkill by any means but a simple and perfect way to fruit
