fan setup
    #1293311 - 02/09/03 11:58 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

allright, as it is right now, i've got my terrarium set up with a hole close to the bottom to let excess CO2 escape. Just got to thinking, i could probably set up a fan outside the turrarium in a pop-bottle with the bottom cut off, and a hose going from the top of the pop-bottle to the hole in the terrarium. I would probably set the fan up so it cycled with the humidifier (15mins every 2 hours), so i wouldn't remove too much humidity. Just wondering if this would be a good idea or not...

any modifications to this that anyone could suggest would be appreciated, as it's still just in the idea stage in my mind :]

Sure that would be fine. I am just a bit worried about contams though.

hmmm, if it's sucking air out, how could contams get in?

can't the mycelium fight off contams once it's in the mushroom growing stage? or am i just misled on this issue?

It is sucking out? What is the point of this then?

And foreign spores from the air can land on your casing layer and be 'activated' to germinate because it is wet. The contam can get limited nutrients from the spores themselves much like an egg and then if it is more powerful than your mycelium can attack.

heh, sorry, should have specified. I'm working with cakes, not casings.

and the sucking out would (theoretically) suck the CO2 out of the bottom of the terrarium, where it settles (i'm fairly sure CO2 is heavier than air...)

It would suck everything out though, not just c02.

EDIT: It would make more sense to have the hose blowing in new fresh air and the c02 would be pushed out of your hole at the bottom.

hmmm, I'll probably try this for my next run, when I do some casings

right now, everything seems cool and these little mushies are growing nicely. I think I'll just let it be for now, I don't wanna go messing around with a working setup in the middle of a grow  :tongue:

thanks for the help, though

have I ever mentioned that this place kicks ass? well, it does, but that's just my professional opinion  :grin:
