Fancy Shamncy Fruiting Chambers
    #1552556 - 05/15/03 10:48 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I've been seeing a lot of pictures of these really fancy looking fruiting chambers. I mean I understand that havnig the aquirium heater with the second rubber maid, and the air pumps and all helps automate and keep things balanced, but what I want to know is:
I only plan on using 1 big rubbermaid tub. I am going to put perlite/verm on the entire bottom to create humidty. On top of that I am going to put three smaller rubbermaid trays that contain the cases. I have a heatpad and if needed, a space heater, but I'm pretty sure summer temps will kick in by fruiting time and the heatpad will give the extra 2-3 degree kick to 80 as right now, in the much smaller incubater, it gets it up to 85 and its only 76 room temp. Three times a day, I am going to open the tub, fan some nice air over it and then mist with a regular spray bottle (a very washed out 409 bottle) using an h202 solution. I mean I know the setup doesn't look pretty, but I think it is going to work fine. It is going to work fine right?

Isn't 76?F the ideal fruiting temp?

You don't need verm, just perlite, and a cap-full or two of H2O2.

Why?  Ideal fruiting temps are in the mid 70s.

As long as light can get in, it will work fine.  Fuck fancy fruitng chambers, they just cost more. :grin:


Good Luck.

That sounds like it will work just fine. I Think the big adavantage to a bubbler and filtered vents in the tank are air exchange if you cant fan regularly.
