It sounds like there is a lot of fanning, humidify-ing, and other daily chores involved in growing. He's always wanted to give 'er a go but there are days, maybe two at a time, that he can't be home to labor. There doesn't seem to be much info here about some of the grow chambers like the hydro-pod system or the 'mushed grow cubes' . I suppose one could still use the pk tek method with these chambers and not have to worry about the daily chores: "are they getting enough of this or that?" -- the hydro-pod is about 200$ USA and the mushed grow-cube $99 eur. (whatever that is USA). That doesn't sound too terribly expensive. Any advice on this? Even the Myco-bags sound like there needs to some day to day maintenance(fanning, light control, etc.) and the sjamaans kit needs a humid environment. (near a raidiator they say) HE just cant seem to make up his mind how to begin. How much do humidifiers run? Can these be purchased at a nursery?
i just read found the section here that explains Perilite so cancel the humidifiying question . I also just found another starter kit called the "Mushbox". Maybe i'll start with that and get a hydro-pod later if needed.
