My Fruiting Chambers (Altered PMPs) Aeroponic mushroom setup??? W/pics
    #11189072 - 10/05/09 08:27 PM (8 years, 13 days ago)

at first i made 2 FCs based on the PMP, but using lava rocks instead of geolite. the lava rocks ended up being a complete bitch to use, so i threw them out and thought up something a little different, but still based on the PMP. i dont know if a tek/idea like this has been posted, or if anyone has ever done this, i just wanted to share my idea. the conditions are dead on, and i think this would be a great and easy FC to build, especially for noobs like me.

i have 2 tubs, each with 2 bubble wands hooked up to 1 air pump (with 4 outlets) and 1 jar in each corner of both FCs. on top of the jars i put a steel screen which is what the cakes will be sitting on. just gotta wait for the cakes to finish, add water and a little H202 into the tubs and ill be on my way to pickin some mushrooms :omgawesome:

just wanted to share this and get some kind of response.

without something in there to disrupt the bubble flow, and wick the moisture into the air, the bottoms of your cakes are going to get saturated

and you need some exhaust ports in those, stuffed with polyfil or something similar or your entire FC will become saturated

i was going to put the cakes on the jar lids.

i guess tomorrow i go out and find some polyfil and try to figure out the right sized hole(s)...

2 - 1" or 1 1/2" i cant remember on the lid, stuffed with poly fixed any problems i had with moisture build up, and nearly eliminated a need to fan.

it would be WAY cool to wire up some TINY fan on a timer...

would you suggest me putting the holes on the top or the side ends of the tubs? and are you saying make 2 holes that are 1" or 1.5" in diameter?

i figured i would have to fan it, but i might try the polyfill in the holes method. i wish i knew where to get a mini and timer... that would be sweet. ill keep my eyes out, so future grows ill have a nice high tech setup.

fully automated.
its a GH tub

holes in the top worked fine for me.

i dont know the science behind it, just know it took care of my wet, stale air FC. which is what the pmps do without exhaust. ime

for a little i had another air pump tubed in on the side ends of the tub. keep air circulating.

didnt help much. the holes with polyfil did
