How big should my chamber be?
    #1848377 - 08/25/03 03:13 PM (14 years, 2 days ago)

Looking for some advice. I am about to start building my birthing chamber and am wondering how big to make it. I am using plexi glass and have lots. I plan to use a ultra-sonic humidifier. How tall should it be? Is it better to make it longer? I am thinking there could be upto 50 cakes (extreme case) and/or cased trays but would usually have more like 20 plus some cased trays.

BTW mycellium from golden syrup (no pc) rocks and is colonising my home ground BRF jars VERY quickly.

Don't feel like doing the maths now, moreover, I don't know how big your cakes and casings are going to be, but why don't you calculate it yourself? Make sure there's enough room for all your cakes and casings, plus some space between them (some shrooms will grow (partly) sideways) and take some reserve for devices like heating pads, humidifiers etc.

50 cakes is too many cakes... If your friend whom you are building this chamber for has 50 cakes he should probably switch to bulk.

What?s up Drip? Well this is my first contraption that I came up with. Cool mist runs all the time with a ultrasonic that comes on every few hours for a few minutes. Size was 4ft long, 2ft high, 2ft wide.

Actually I am growing them for myself. I love Canada. I am planning on doing some bulk but as I get new strains I will do a dozen jars so it is possible I would have 4 strains going at once but that would be rare.

I am mostly interested in other peoples experience. Did you find you needed 6" distance between them. Did stacking work? If a chamber is 4' high will the top have dramatically less humidity? Any input based upon experience would be greatly appriciated. Thank-you.
