Plans for a fruiting chamber, UPDATE! Ever use silicone II"?
    #1688885 - 07/05/03 11:16 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

This guy I met on the street today told me that he was planning on making a fruiting chamber that used the suspension tek, found here While using the Cool mist humidifier tek found here.

He said something about finding a good way to keep it warm, and asked me if I had any ideas to which I replied "duh".

Think the guy needs a couple lights on the case, will that keep the chamber warm, and how do you get a lamp that will work with all the moisture in there?

He understands the concepts, he is just looking for some more experienced execution. For instance, what if he asked "would some perlite added to the cool mist tek be redundant or worth my time?"

Everything sounds fine. I just really dont see the reason of having perilite in there with a Cool Mist.

Sounds good use one florecent light, put it on the outside on tip of the lid not in the chamber, shouldn't put out hardly any heat, test the terrarium out with the cool mist first and if it doesn't need perlite don't add if it does add some..

This guy I swear is helpless, he just called me and thanked you for your help.

He knows he needs to get a hydrometer, but hes not sure as to what the ideal humidty is for shroom growth.

Oh! He just remembered, being the hippy that he is he still has a 15w black light would that do?

Think it would trip the shrooms out and make them more potent?

100% for cakes/not cased subs. 85% for cased subs. anything over that for a casing will fuck u after the first flush. ull see green under ur casing if u scratch it i know i tried it tested to see 4 myself. and as far as a black light goes u can use it. nolan that tek isnt especally for a newb u should just do stright cakes and watch thhem to get a feel for it! that tek ur looking at i did it before and it aint all that its only maximizing ur grow area by a bit. dont start with that unless u have to ok. i mean honestly u didnt read shit because u didnt even know what humidity leavel should be for what. i sugest u read ALOT more guy

i used perlite with my coolmist setup...
perlite made sure i had sufficant humidity, cool mist added air exchange so i didnt need to be around to fan....

cool misty needs to be on a timer.... if left on it actually drys shit out.....
hence the perlite.....

I will let him know, and suggest he skip the suspension part of the chamber.

Thanks!

UPDATE!

So the "guy" that I met on the street installed the hose into his rubbermaid tub. But one side cracked, and the holes were pretty unever, but he got some "kitchen and bath" silicone II from the local walmart. Where it says that the seal is water tight and mildew resistant, and he promptly started to seal up the crack and seal around the hose entrances.

Do you guys think Silicone II will be harmful in any way to the shrooms this guy may or may not be growing? Seems like the obvious way to go, but it is never mentioned in the Cool Mist tek description.

Can he use this stuff to seal the hoses both to the tub and to the humidifier? Maybe even seal up the crack where the 2 halves meet, and refill the humidifier through the original vapor output?

He doesnt want the silly thing leaking into his anonymous house and all over his anonymous rug. I hardly know the guy, but it makes me sad for him. Maybe if he could just lay of the sauce and not try to build shit while drunk he wouldnt have done such a shitty job.

sigh

You should let the silicone stuff cure for several days, or a week if you have the time, preferably in the sun, to drive off any volatiles. But, sure, you could seal the thing up with it.
