Opinion wanted on bulding terrarium.
    #1885110 - 09/05/03 01:46 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

I am a first time grower so bare with me. My BRF/VERM jars are fully colonized and ready to be birthed. I was planning on trying to grow them in an old home audio speaker. It is about three feet tall and two feet deep. I was thinking about putting it on its side (to accommodate more jars). My only concerns en lie in the area of sterility. What would be the best way to grow in this manner?

Well... that's a new one... I wouldn't worry about sterility too much, colonized cakes are pretty resiliant, but how are you planing to maintain humidity and facilitate air exchange? I think you would have to protect the speaker walls in some way to prevent them rotting... and have you thought about a light source? More info would be helpful :grin:

I was planning on fanning or possibly having a small fan on a timer to insure good air exchange.  In the department of heat and humidity I was going to have an aquarium heater in a bowl of water with a little h2o2 to keep it clean.  I was very tempted to use my reptiles fogger(Hagen Reptile Exo-Terra Mini Fogger), If you think it would be better or even worth while let me know.  I was thinking about sticking in a small night light or Christmas light to give them something to grow to.  If the rotting wood may be an issue, perhaps I should cover the walls with saran wrap?  Maybe not..  Thanks a lot for your time and sharing of knowledge.  If you have any other comments or ideas, please let me know. :thumbup:

You would definitely need to cover the walls really well with some sort of plastic. Some heavy duty saran wrap would probably work. Just make sure the wood is well sealed. Wood is just about one of the best places to harbor contams. I would put some geolite in the bottom and either use a fish tank bubbler or a cool mist humidifier instead of a fan. The fan will kill your humidity. Everything else sounds good. White christmas lights have been used before with much success. Just don't leave them on 24/7.

I'll give that a try. How should I have my Christmas lights? Is there a way to only have one light, or should I have more? Thanks again for the help. Your a gentleman and a scholar.

I've looked at the model you mean, and have been very tempted to try it in the past... if you do decide to use it, let us know how it goes, but the Demiurge's geolite option is definitely a tried and tested (and extremely successful - cheers Magash) way to go.

If you use chritmas lights, they should all be at the top of the speaker, and on on a 12h on 12h off sequence... I personally use a fluerescent aquarium light that peaks in the blue spectrum that I bought at my local pet shop. I have it on 10h then off 14h, because it's more powerful ( I use a 9w bulb ). Remember that light only tells the shrooms which way to grow, it's not used in any kind of photosynthesis.
