A few questions concering the PMP
    #2006860 - 10/14/03 12:20 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I know perlite can be substituted for geo-lite, so i will most likely use that instead of geolite. at least for right now, maybe when i get some cash flow rolling in. Anyways, do I need bubble wands/stones? Can I just use tubing with the ends plugged, and pinholes poked in it?

Heres my list for my run to the store this weekend
Rubbermaid Container
Double Fish Pump
2 bags of perlite (well, only if its on sale like last time...$3 for a biiiig bag)

Did I forget anything? I would seal the holes that the air tubes go in with duct tape or maybe even caulking, and then make 3 or 4 holes an inch or so under the lid for venting purposes. How does this sound?

Everything written above this line is completely false. I am terribly bored and write here to pass time. I do not participate or support any illegal activity.

All you need is a layer of perilite about inch & a half deep, a 50/50 mix of water & h2o2, this will provide more than enough humidity, there is no need for bubblers, pumps , converted humidifiers, if there is condensation on the walls of the chamber, there is plenty of humidity, i have noticed several posts about bubblers today, you just need not spend the time, money & effort ( so i was told by a chick i met last year at a concert)

Ok, perlite works great but sucks to work with. Get lava rock if your making a Poorman's pod, cheap, works great, reusable. The hose idea will work but be sure you mount the pump above the water line or it can syphon by mistake. ( could get ugly )

The fish pump I use to use  :wink: is the profile 5500. The parts on the inside are replaceable and easy to find at petco. They just snap in, very easy.

You'll like the pod, it's nice to just put the cakes in and forget them. No fanning crap or misting bullshit. Simple. 

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?
