shotgun FC ?'s
    #11252974 - 10/15/09 02:53 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

hey everyone im building a shot gun fruiting chamber out of a sterilite 65qt container and am needing to know if a 4 cubic foot bag of perlite will be enough to fill it enough to maintain the humidity or how much i need(prob gonna buy perlite online,cars broke and no ride into town).Also if a bubble stick would be better under the perlite or in an glass of water for fae and my cakes wont be dunk and rolled so will misting the chamber be an issue,and if i cant find perlite is there any way i can use something possibly around the house in place of it like crushed up bricks or cinder blocks????thanks for any and all help in advance.

Use 4-5 inches of perlite always or look into a poor mans pod

Perlite is best... Bricks and rocks?? I don't know if that was a joke or not, but they dont hold water so using them would be stupid.

If you cant find perlite, you can look at your pet store for "dyna rocks" they are pretty much the same thing, they look a little nicer. lol

nah bricks dont even make sense... Just order it online then... You can find perlite all over the net.

There is no rush on getting the stuff until your cakes are ready to fruit.
