looking for COMPLETE rubbermaind terranium
    #1609433 - 06/04/03 11:35 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hi. I am obviously a nub. and the reason why i am not starting to grow is because of the fruiting chamber. I read the chambers listed here on shroomery and even on nansnook.

I am interested in the rubbermaid one. But i dont know the fundementals of it. like when exactly do I need to exchange fresh air, etc.

So if anyone can post a complete thread of how to make like a rubbermaid fruiting chamber or pod, etc. that would be very great!

Perlite
Water
Lid with retangular cut so light can get in

Take perlite. Dump about 2 - 3 inches in the terrarium. Pour water into the terrarium until perlite is damp or alittle wet. Take lid. Cut a retangular piece out that is 1 ft bt 6 inches out. Go buy a piece of plexi glass at harware store and silicone it on. Youre done. That is the basics.

Air exchange:
Air stones / pump

Place airstones on the bottom on perlite
COnnected it to a pump outside of terrarium
Turn it on
Cut a hold or 2 on the top of lid, stuff with polyfill

You got a fully automated system now. GL

what is polyfill? and about the light. is light really needed? id like to have this grow pretty stealthy.

and what about water exchange? and about the air exchange
would it be an extra good idea having a small air purifer right near the 2 holes that are cut?

thanks for the replys. as for using the search button. i have.

    I guess, to answer your question, one needs to know what specie(s) you're willing to cultivate? Which TEK are you using (cakes...casings...)?  I guess when you answer these questions, you'll get your answer from our masters....!  :smile: Good luck!

I guess this can help initialy ;
http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Forum2&Number=1607166&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=1

2 x 15 minutes per day of airing should be enough. The other consept is to develop a feeling for moisting the terrarium. (which, i blieve, i'm not experienced enough to suggest a way ::)))

Have Fun!

Lighting initiates pinning. There sound be some form of light. So try to put in light as part of your grow chamber.

I was thinking of putting a small light(ive heard of people using x-mas lights and all inside the bin. that would create more heat and all :laugh:

so i might just ditch the plexi glass idea. and keep a small light on 24/7

as for air exchange. wouldnt it be better just having air exchange on 24/7 like zwieback0 said. and just cut 2 holes on the top?

~id like to thank everyone who replyd and all. (and will hopefully continue to ;D)i will def. have a grow log with a lot of pictures once i start. id like to give all you karma points :laugh:

air exchange 24/7 is fine if you have a humidifer - if you are using perlite it might dry out the terrarium too much, plus with no air movement I'm not sure it would even help too much...
