air-stone and peroxide questions
    #11372812 - 11/02/09 11:14 PM (8 years, 9 months ago)

so i have a tub i used as a monotub once that I'm going to fruit in.... just to give you a mental image.. Ive got two holes on each of the the long sides at substrate level about 2 1/2 inches wide and one hole on each of the short sides towards the top of the tub, same size, all stuffed with polyfill....i have a timer, light, an aquarium air pump running to an air stone which is under 4 inches of perlite... i just put 2 colonized trays in the chamber and am running on a 12 on, 12 off light cycle...QUESTION #1: I'm wondering if i should put the air pump on the timer too, or if i should run it 24/7... QUESTION #2: if the pump is ran 247 or 12/12... should i still fan for extra FAE for good measure? QUESTION #3: when misting my uncased trays, not knowing the cleanliness of my city tap water, should i mix hydrogen peroxide with my water, if so how much...Ive heard 10 to 1...

thanks in advance, any other int put/tips are always appreciated..

I'm using rye to about 70% coir, 25% verm and 5% or less of spent coffee (thanks super corporate coffee chain)

should i get some gypsum?

Gypsum is ALWAYS a good idea...

You could search for any CCV+ thread and find some other peoples ratios for it. I believe Doc_T had a good post on it somewhere...

Question #1 and #2..... airpumps are mostly for fresh air exchange. If you mist the perlite lightly and then fan it a few times a day, you're golden. The air pump is simply for good measure. Either way 12/12 or 24hours your good. Do what you feel is necessary.

Question #3..... you can add a mix of water and hydrogen peroxide to a spray bottle, and a few days later there will be little to no trace of hydrogen peroxide. Therefor it is acceptable as a water purifier. Couldn't hurt to use purified water could it?  The ratio most often used is 10:1 but you can use up to 20:1.

Anymore brain busterrrssss!! HA!

Hyphae says "Dont use hydrogen peroxide/water mixture unless you have a contam (cobweb mold) or un-distilled water"
