The best humidifier-less FC?
    #11171702 - 10/02/09 09:51 PM (8 years, 19 days ago)

I was thinking about making a Shotgun FC from the RR video, but considering how it's about to become fall, and I live in Texas, it's starting to get cold. I don't have a humidifier in my home, and I don't plan on getting one for a while (I've spent my budget on shroomery-related things). So is there a cheap alternative for me?

I plan on using the casing method with a big tub with perlite at the bottom of the tub.

Thanks for the help in advance! Happy shrooming! :tongue:

I picked up a humidifier at a thrift shop for about $3.  Give that a try.

And things don't have to be overly warm for fruiting, so why is the temperature an issue?

I could be wrong, but as things get colder, they get less humid also? 0:

Depending on what part of Texas, you might need to get a humidifier. Or mist a whole heck of a lot.

You make it all possible. Doesn't it feel good?

Check this out.

Buying a humidifier might actually be the most economical option for you.  Check thrift shops.  If that fails, you can still pick one up new for less than it will end up costing you to heat a dry apartment.

But then, there's also this.

30% rh is apparently more than enough to run an effective shotgun chamber, which means that you can probably still get by without a humidifier if you happen to insist.

You do not need a humidifier, the perlite causes the humidity. Also when fruiting shrooms like a low temp IME.
