propagator for terrarium
    #1832478 - 08/20/03 08:14 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

i am currently going to use a self heating plant propagator for my terrarium. It has capillary matting where you add water to create humidity and i was wondering would this provide adequate humidity for the mushrooms. Otherwise i am going to use ultra sonic humidification or perlite. Does anyone know and recommend any free spore rings. Should i place some kind of light over the terrarium as i don't know if this is needed. Any advice would be great.

Fill that thing with one big casing, it will supply it's own humidity. Forget about heating it unless it's 60 degrees in your house. Fan a couple times a day. Doesn't get any easier than that.

Where'd you get that propagator from anyway? That's a mighty tall dome.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

I bought the b&q propagator (sankey one was a bit expensive at time) they work pretty well, but controlling temperature is easier if you use a thermostat, which you can buy for £33.50 from micro-science. i use them for most of my stuff (minus spores). http://www.micro-science.co.uk/shop/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=26&products_id=112

thats the link, hope it works. And to warn you their is two different site shops. don't know why .

BTW is that a sankey propagator you have?

Hello,Ive just started growing myself and got a few bags on the grow and I went out and bought the sankey prop. due to my boiler cupboard being only place in house with a consistent temp.

To lower the temps to my bag I put the mat down and the placed the two trays you get with it on top and placed my bags in,so far so good.

Bump would also like to know if the capillary mat would be of any use with or without casing
