Input & questions about automated fruiting chamber design
    #11164762 - 10/01/09 06:09 PM (8 years, 23 days ago)

I'm in the process of trying to create a decent fruiting chamber for my first grow but I have a few questions to be answered first. The basis of my design is the standard dual chambered terrarium, I'm hoping to automate the whole thing, using a humidifier of some sort but I have read some conflicting reports on which one to use. I was originally just going to make this terrarium (found here) since it supposedly covers both gas exchange and humidification

However, another article said that cool mist humidifiers are good for constant humidity and air exchange, and ultrasonic generate too much humidity (taken care of with the empty bottles in the picture presumably) and require additional air exchange. Can anyone give me a solid answer on which humidifier is preferable?

My second obstacle is temperature. My house is cold. Like, really cold. So I was thinking about adapting the incubator design here and combining it with the above fruiting chamber.

I would use clear plastic tubs to allow sunlight in, and would probably have a (watertight)tube going from the inner tub to the outside to facilitate gas exchange. Is this a feasible idea? And what is the ideal fruiting temperature?

Thanks in advance for any help

Haha, ok. Didn't realize it was that obsolete. Like I said, this is my first grow. So I should be using the shotgun design? Any thoughts on my heating situation?

i made this first





it has an exhaust fan which comes on for 5 min each hr it is ducted between both Chambers

a vapor unit that comes on for 15 min every hr after the fan goes off which feeds both Chambers

and the rt side has 2 air stones that are on 24/7 in the bottom under the expanded clay balls.


and i just finished this for the new logs





it has an internal vapor and fan that function at the same time every hr for 15 min

shelves were 17 bucks....the shit

it was built for this



the new logs. 7 inch poly tube pulse sealed bottom.

build it they will grow and then listen to them they will tell you what they need.
