I just bought a huge 33 gallon fruiting chamber....
    #1632857 - 06/14/03 11:25 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

How many inches of perlite across to retain humidity in such a big thing? 1 and a half - 2 inches? Did I screw up for getting such a big container? I was impatient and hauled off and paid out the ass for this thing at the Container Store. What do you think? This is my first time growing shrooms and I don't want to fuck it up! :-p

first off.. forget perlite in that thing.

33 galons is roughly 125 liters which is right at the limit of what a good coolmist can do.. probably could keep it at 95% with a coolmist. Is this "33 gallons" like more tall then wide? 125 liters of room that is only maybe 1 1/2 feet high would give you a large amount of fruiting room! 125 liters that is 5 foot tall wouldn't give you any more fruiting room then a $5 Rubbermaid 60liter clear plastic container. You need to consider that the people who have a vertical Terratium can access it from the side, not the top. This is because they are multi-tiered.

I'd suggest you take the item back and read threw the humidity teks and do some searches to see what others are using for terratiums. As a first time grower I would suggest a cool mist setup. Though with a bucket as big as you got I'm assuming you would want to grow pounds or something so you might look into ultrasonics.

uh, damn.  Yeah, I thought I got it too large after I already bought it.  No biggie...I can always take it back or use it to store something else other then shrooms.  :smile:  I really can only afford the perlite way right now, especially for my first growing experience.  Well, thanks for the well thought out advice!

Cool mist costs less then a single airstone and air pump.
