The poor mans pod is ok I guess, but with less hassle you could make a growing chamber that performs MUCH better.

All you need is a Vicks cool mist humidifier, ($25 at walgreens).. a cheap garden hose, access to a drill and a drill bit and your growing container whatever it may be.. a rubbermaid or whatnot. drill a hole in the cool mist, a hole in the terrerium, attach the hose and make it air tight and there ya go. The cool mist provides air exchange and humidity at the same time. It's totally automated and performs better than any method of air exchange and humidity there is.

Check out ShroomGod's tek. By far the best.

Aight why do we have to confuse a nub???! Seriously if this is your first time just get an aquarium and toss perlite inside it and a airpump with bubbler inside a cup for air exchange and humidity. You dont need to do anything about heat (unless its less than 60F in there) in my opinion thats the best way to go if your just starting. You can go the extra mile and build a pmp, the geolite is readily avaliable at your local hydro store or online. OR (yes it gets better look up ANTONIUS in the growlog forum) you can build a grow chamber with a ultrasonic humidifier. Theres many paths you can take. Either way your set on your new hobby and dont listen to all tha hooblah :thumbup: 




Dude, you're the one confusing him.  Anotonus doesn't even use an ultrasonic.  Get you information correct please.   

Ok, you drill the holes in the back or the top of the cool mist, when you  open it up and you'll see exactly what I mean. 

This is the simplest and most effective tek there is, if you get confused by this then you'd really get confused by anything else.  PLEASE PLEASE don't use perlite and the fish tank pump tek, it's a mess and doesn't work for shit. 

With the Cool Mist the water level stops half way up the humidifier so the rest of the inside is the humid air that gets pumped out.  You can drill the holes anywhere in the top and it will push the air out of the holes into the hose as long as you tape up the original outlet hole.  It's that easy and simple and its fully automated, no fanning.

so, is that the vicks humidifier that we are talking about? i'm just a little confused I get the jist of it, its just that, whats the point in drilling the holes? just to hook the hose up correct? why can't you just fix the hose onto the existing outlet on the humidifier? thats whats really confusing me.

You still didn't read the link to the tek yet did you? Follow his instructions for the cool mist to the letter. COOL MIST COOL MIST COOL MIST. Don't wanna use or buy an ultrasonic, they don't provide sufficent air exchange and give off to much humidity. Your terrerium would turn into a lake.

Try again. If you had room temps of 60F you'd never ever even get a PF jar or any other substrate to germinate, period. 60F is way to low. You need stable room temps of 70 or higher. Cubensis' fruiting temps are optium between 74 and 78. Anything below 70 and it won't grow for sure.
