Humidity/perlite question
    #1906708 - 09/11/03 07:45 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

So it was my understanding that perlite provides "the perfect humidity"... but I seem to be getting some cauliflower (but only on some of the cakes. wtf). Is there anything I can do about this besides fan more often?

I suppose the fact that I had cobweb shows that I had stagnant air, but christ. I was worried I was fanning too much before. And they say automatic air exchange is too much work. Pfft.

Removing CO2 while retaining Humidity [Re: LiL_KuSsH]
    #2006634 - 10/13/03 11:14 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I fail to see how adding air to the bottom of the tank replaces fanning.

Shrooms turn Oxygen into Carbon Dioxide, yes?
CO2 is heavier than Oxygen, sinks to the bottom, yes?

How do we get the CO2 out?

On my next terrarium I think I'll rig a computer fan on a timer, I'm not sure how I'll build a seal around that.

I'd like to see a method of dumping the CO2 that doesn't cause the humidity to dip.

"I fail to see how adding air to the bottom of the tank replaces fanning.......How do we get the CO2 out?"

It works. It's not like the CO2 sits on the bottom like oil and water would do; it is diffused into the new air. If you want to get fancy you can figure out the volume of your fruiting chamber and get a pump that will move over 3X that volume per day.

"I'd like to see a method of dumping the CO2 that doesn't cause the humidity to dip. "

Well, a friend of a friend has been using the poor man's pod for a while now and the humidity never drops below 90%.

get a fish tank bubbler and put a cup of water and h202 in there with diffuser stones. Or if it's still too humid than just build a fliter box around the filter and run dry fresh air in.

Thanks folks.

Do you put an exhaust hole near the bottom of the terrarium to allow for escaping CO2? If you have a sealed terrarium, how can you even get O2 in?

I think I'll go with a cool mist humidifier instead of perlite or ultrasonic humidification this time.

Does anybody else use peltier junctions in their setups?
