Infinite Flushes?
    #1408026 - 03/25/03 09:04 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)


I've placed my cakes on some T.P. folded over...the end went on the terarium floor
and as i sprayed mist into my terrarium id drop a pool near the end of it.
the tp only draws up enough moisture to feed the cake
i use hydrogen peroxide to fight infection
has anyone else tried this...
it was kinda inspired by the idea of hydoponic system i've seen.
what about adding pre-mixed nutrients...like in liquid plant food?
could this be the beggining of an inifinite flush system?

this might help to increase yields, but it definately is not an "infinite" flush technique. Your first problem is that although you're providing water, you are not renewing nutrients, so eventually the fungus will run out of food. If you do use a nutrient solution you significantly increase the risk of bacterial infection. Additionally, waste will accumulate in the cake, so eventually your cake is going to croak even if you are providing nutrients.

Possibly using a solution of dextrose/water/h2o2 might solve that issue.

This is an old idea though, people have used nylon ropes which were coiled around the inside of the cake (when prepared) then the end hangs down into the resevoir.

Eventually contams would take over though.

All events stated by myself are only fictionous stories, any relations to true events are intirely coincidental.
