pormans pod, bad for casing?
    #1784421 - 08/06/03 10:31 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I was hoping if I could get some feedback this by on anybody w/ some experience on using casings w/ the poor mans pod. So far I'm not getting any humidity w/ it. The water table was kind of high but I lowered that to well beyond an inch below the hydroton level and have blocked off any holes that moisture might escape from and still not a damn thing :shake:. I'm thinking that the casing containers are taking up too much room over the hydroton and hindering the wicking action of the hydroton. Any advice?

For starters you want the water level to be about 1/4 of an inch below the Geo-lite. It helps wick moisture into the casing cake. Therefore it's a good idea to do a double sided casing as grains do not abosorb moisture that well in a contraption like this.

Personally I think the best way to handle casings in a pod is equal parts colonized grains and casing material. Mixed together rather then layers.
