I just bought a huge 33 gallon fruiting chamber....

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!

Just use it to make the poor man's pod.

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