So this seems like an ideal mushroom growing environment. From the information i have gathered on this sight this looks pretty ideal but i'm not sure if this is the exact setup i need. this is where your expert critiques come in.

the sides of the terrarium are going to be opaque and the lid will be transparent so the light from the low wattage flourescent fixture mounted above can be switch on automatically whenever needed.

as for the heater and airstone...do they get submerged in the water/perlite layer in the middle of the chamber and at the bottom of the chamber? the airstone's purpose is to mix the water around to ensure even heating right?

how deep should the chamber be? in this type of setup i think the floor level should be covered completely by casing trays w/ no space between them, is this correct?

does a fan need to be run to circulate air or can the chamber lid remain closed the whole time? is there anything the chamber is missing?

you cant use vermiculite at the bottom of your setup, use perlite, or geolite. geolite is more expensive, but reusable. search for 'poor man's pod' and let magash show you how to do it

i dont think you need a bottom layer of geolite if your just doing casings unless your putting them in without a container.

The airstone is to provide air exchange with humidity, if you totally cover the bottom of the chamber with casings you are not going to allow that to occur.
