My first terrarium, should it work
    #1842460 - 08/23/03 12:37 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Well after research and realizing i'm lazy i decided a little extra work now would be better in the long run so i tried to build an automated terrarium using the Magic mushroom growers guide tek ( the one with an ultra sonic humidifier feeding into the coke bottles then into the terrarium. well i had a few questions about it. first off has anyone used this succesfully before and is it ok if i run the humidifier at full blast with some bleach added to the water to clean out the terrarium before i birth cakes. i will post pics tomorrow. thank you all.

that's exactly what i did for my first grow  :smile:

sure, you can do that, but it's not needed. make sure the water has no bleach in it when there are cakes in residence! i've since discovered that the coke bottles are a royal pain in the ass - use a minute-accurate timer instead, if you can get one! also forget the drip shield. otherwise, that's a great fun starting place!

shriley, how many minutes do you leave the humidifier on for, and how many times in a 24/h base do you turn it on for? do you fan your terrarium using ultrasonic or does the humidifier provide enough air circulation? If yes how many times?

Sorry with all those question, and thanks in advance!

i don't use it any more. when i did, i found that less was more (about 3 minutes every couple of hours). i didn't fan it cos it was blowing in fresh air for 3 mins every 2 hours, better than i could manage with the lid(i had filtered CO2 outflow holes).

these days i use this:
and maybe some perlite in the big tub.

it's just a fishtank airpump, piping a waterfall stream of semifiltered air where it needs to go. cheap, easy, and low maintenance.
