Re: Too many cakes...help w. your terrarium tek (please!)

When I went shopping for terrarium supplies, I was dissapointed with how loose fitting the tops of the styrofoam containers were. Plus the only ones they sell at my ShroomMart are relatively small. I went with one of those Sterlite plastic bins. I'm going to build a lid from a wood frame and heavy duty saran wrap like stuff. I found that the plastic bins were very easy to drill into for your bubbler hose. Also the plastic bins were only like 2 dollars more, and they will last a lot longer. Just something to consider. Good luck.

Thanks for the tip. I got the sterlite tubs. In one, I'm using perlite humidification, the other is using an aquarium bubbler and an aquarium heater submersed in a large pickle jar full of H2O2. My third tank is the standard PF-style dual chambered terrarium. I can't believe how fast these cakes have colonized and producing. I'm watching the first little shrooms forming now, and it's only day 16. I think I may get my wish for having shrooms for the 5th of May. Planetary alignment going on and all...should be interesting :wink:

Wow! sounds like you're doing well! what strain of mushrooms are you growing and where'd you pick the spores up? Good luck to you!

-good day, all.

heh... Thanks...I was lucky to have quick colonization and zero contams 10 out of 10 jars. 1 PF syringe. And then, I had some leftover B+ that I did a few jars of...all PF's have been birthed, a few are producing pins already..the B+ are around 75% sitting in the box the jars came in on my monitor. I'm splitting them into different terrariums as an experiment to see which method I can make work best and if there's any difference between the two strains as far as humidification tek/fruiting goes. Purely for educational purposes. Mycology sure is an interesting hobby! :wink:
