Is my Air Pump large enough?
    #1627030 - 06/11/03 07:44 PM (14 years, 17 days ago)

I read a post earlier from ChineseGuy that mention you should have enough air flow to do 2-3 complete cycles/Hr. I did the math and found the specs on my dogs pump. And it works out to 1.4 cyles/hr will that be enough....and How will he know if it's not....what type of signs show when air exchange is deminished.
He runs an Elite 799 @ 1.2 LPM (Min) in a 53 L Tub.

Not enough for maximum growth, but more than enough to produce shrooms. Remember that those are optimum growing conditions and the shrooms will still grow in less than optimum ones. Fer chrissake's, wild ones grow in a heap o' cow shit in the middle of a field. Think that is better suited to optimum growth than your terrarium?

BetMomIsProud is right.

some hindu dude had 2 containers and one pump. the pump provided 1.5 exchanges per hour w/ the bigger terrarium and 2.7 w/ the smaller terrarium. the results were incomparable- he noticed significant increases in yeild, fruitbody size and general quality when using the smaller container.

if the exchange is not optimal, you will notice the smell of carbon dioxide when you open the terrarium. conversely, when exchange is sufficient, you can leave the container closed and will never smell cd unless you have other problems. good luck

Uh...CO2 doesn't smell. It's completely odorless.
