Last minute Poor Man's Pod help
    #1988339 - 10/07/03 11:07 PM (14 years, 18 days ago)

After being bitterly (yes, quite bitterly) disappointed in the coolmist setup that my kitten had, she has now gotten the supplies to build the PMP!!!  Yippee!!  She is very excited.  :smile:

Just a few questions...Can she use the hole from the coolmist input to bring in the silicone tubing for the bubblers?  It is about an inch in size, and she doesn't have a way to make new holes. 

Also, whats the ratio geolite and water again?  I think I heard that there needs to be 4 inches of geolite? 

She got a 30-80 gallon airpump since her terrarium is rather large, so I assume that will be enough. 

Also, what will putting the cakes on the geolite actually do?  Won't it make the shrooms waterlogged?  Does it help anything in particular?

Anyway, any other tips or something she's forgetting??

Thanks!!!  :cool:

As long as the hole is above the geolite it?s fine.

About 4 inches is right with 3 to 3 1/2 of water.



Sounds like that pump will be enough.

Putting the cakes on the geolite lets them draw without having to put them on layer of verm.

I am just giving U some advice though I'm still a newb too. I recently built a poor man's pod for fun and I think it's a pretty nice set-up.

1.If the hole is too big U could get some aquarium sealant or silicone glue and use as needed.

2.There should be an inch to an inch and a half of geolite above the waterline.

3. The pump should be big enough to allow air exchange twice to three times an hour.

^Here is some basic answers to your questions but I am no professional so wait for some other responses.

if you need to make new holes in your rubbermaid....just use a red hot knife...works great for me,then seal with silicone or hot melt glue or use rubber gromets.
