50/50+ Casing Tek Question ? ? ?
    #11299641 - 10/22/09 03:32 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

I recently constructed a shotgun terrarium for BRF cakes. My plan is to get a system going that works, harvest some fruit and then move onto bigger and better things like casings. Now from what I understand a shotgun terrarium built correctly and with a layer of perlite at the bottom creates 100% humidity, now when dealing with casings as stated in Ryche hawk's 50/50+ casing tek you want your humidity to be somewhere between 82% and 92%. So my question is, what can I do to modify my shotgun terrarium so that it is between 82% and 92% humidity? or if someone knows a better type of chamber or technique for casings that supports the proper humidity, what would that be?

i wouldn't worry about a casing unless your spawning to coir or poo or something..if your just using cakes all you need to do is dunk and roll..that's basicaly a casing layer for your cakes.

If you're thinking of doing casings, just blast right past that into spawning to a bulk sub. It's nearly the same procedure and will get you more mush than casing alone. Look at my sig for a full explanation.

I plan on dunking my cakes and rolling them in verm... when I referred to casings I meant spawning to bulk substrate, those kind of casings... Thank you both for your advice but my question is still unanswered... I will try to rephrase it better... What kind of grow chamber is efficient for bulk substrate? Can I use my shotgun terrarium that I just built for bulk substrate? Is there A way to modify my shotgun terrarium so that the humidity inside is between 82% and 92% or should I just use another type of chamber?

I believe that humidity figure is outdated, you want to keep humidity really high. You can use a shotgun FC and throw bulk trays in there. You can also make a monotub.

A mono-tub is the most effective budget system for spawning to a bulk short of out-door growing. While you'll probably need to build a new tub, it's a cheap upgrade.

A properly maintained GH is probably more efficient in the long run, but I don't think they're highly scalable for the hobbyist and they need a lot of attention or a lot of money. Mono-tubs are fairly 'set it and forget it' in comparison.

OK thanks... Ive been looking around shroomery.org, and I cant find a monotub tek. Does anyone have a link to a really good one...??? I searched on google and all I came across was a tek without pictures at shroomtalk...

Don't use google. From the main shroomery.org page click on mushroom cultivation. I can't remember the index from there, but it under the part about bulk or fruiting chambers.

Honestly, they're so simplistic they almost defy a tek.

Take a big tote (tub), usually 60+ qts (Doc_T has a mini-mono tek, just find one of his posts, a link is in his sig), drill 8 1" to 2" holes in it; 4 at the top, 4 at the bottom with the bottom holes being 4.5-5" off the floor (bottom edge of the hole, not the center). stuff with polyfil or cover with tyvek.

Shit, it's easier to build a mono than it is to find a tek on one :crankey:
