Poor mans pod question
    #2013440 - 10/16/03 02:25 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

In this thread it does not explain how the oil pan is used. I also see no reason why it would be needed. Sorry if i missed it while looking through, and it's a big thread. THanks

Those are parts from the original Hydra pod. You don't need a oil pan in the poormans pod.

Doesn't need to be air tight. My pod holds 83 % with the lid off.

A top for that thing with the space for the light would be perfect. Just tape the spaces. Leave two holes in the top for airexchange. They should be in the top for this reason.

The fundamental principal behind using air entrainment is to sufficiently mix the two (fresh air and stale air) together and then re-distribute them back into the environment in a more balanced way that is then more beneficial to the mushroom crop. Without this sufficient mixing of the gasses present within the grow space, the crops will remain stunted and will likely never reach their optimum potential.

With the poormans pod, the settling co2 air is met and diffused by a curtain of fresh air rising from beneath the Geo-lite surface. This rising flow of air is created from the air diffuser rod situated below the Geo-lite surface, which is powered by the air pump. The rising air pattern not only prohibits the heavier co2 air from settling down onto the bottom surface as usual but it also simultaneously diffuses the co2 with fresh air as it is distributed back into the environment or grow space where it can be put to good use.

In this way, the poor mans pod creates the same desired phenomenon as offered by more conventional means of air entrainment found in much larger-scale commercial applications where a mixing box is commonly used to accomplish this important task.
