Perhaps. You can also use larger holes in fewer larger holes such as 3/8" holes.

Ive made SGFC with less-than-spec holes and it still works great.




What about the holes on the bottom. I keep seeing mixed messages with that. Some say bigger or more holes on the bottom so the air rises through moist perlite, but others say use the same amount of holes.

Also, is there a way to test if your SGFC is working properly without putting cakes in and seeing if they fail or not?

Or is it really not that complicated? As in, there isn't a whole lot of room for failure, just as long as it has holes?

Question: how do you keep the chamber at the right  temperature? I just bought a heating mat for germinating seeds. Will this work? How do I position it?

Don't use a heating mat. It will be too warm.

Is this method preferable to the “water tub tek” method? I’m debating which one to use.

The water tub precedes the SGFC and exploits the resilience of one species to poor air exchange. It falls into the category of choke chambers like the monotub or unmodified tubs. It's also among the easiest methods to fruit P.cubensis. If that's all you intend to grow have at it.

The SGFC is not a one trick pony and addresses the requirements of many species. When built and used as described it works fantastic with minimal tending.

Thanks for the response. I'm growing B+ mushroom species but am also thinking about doing some gourmet mushrooms as well.

No Don't stuff the holes. Notice how no where did it say to do that. Don't make up your own directions.

Fanning is unnecessary. You're overthinking it. You fan the sgfc which has the cakes in it. You fan by waving the lid a couple times after misting. If you feel like it.

Walls don't grow. Neither does plastic. Of course spray the cakes.

You have to open the sgfc to mist...
