grow chamber size
    #1798316 - 08/10/03 04:09 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hello,
I'm a newbie using the PF Tek and was wondering if someone could please tell me a thing or two about the "ideal" grow chamber measurements.  I started with the idea that taller is better, so my chamber (large plastic tub from Lowe's) is about 3 ft. high, 3 ft. long, and a little over 2 ft. wide.  If I'm using a humidifier, do you think that could be enough to keep the RH over 90 in such a big area?     :confused:

You may want to take a look at the Poor Mans Pod This is a fairly cheap, well thought up idea, which provides good growing conditions.

If you don't want to buy all this new stuff, you can just get a smaller bin. 3ft x 3ft x 2ft is pretty (too) big. Id just go with a 16 gallon rubbermaid, an airpump and an air bubbler. I can't answer the question about the humidifier, but i think it will not be sufficient (sp?) But what do I know?

I'd say stick with the basic stuff, before you go and try something new.

Your terrarium needs to be like 18 inches max, you could get away with 12, with the pf-tek. I would get a sterilite, 38 quart storage vcontainer

mesurments have little to nothing to do with it as long as they are over a certain size to allow your mushies room to grow
temp,humitity,and gas exchange are what's important and kramer recomends Magash's pmp

How does this allow for gas exchange? Manually? Sorry I'm new at this.
