What to do when traveling?
    #2129990 - 11/23/03 04:10 AM (14 years, 27 days ago)

I'm going away on Wednesday and won't be back for a week. My first casing has been colonizing for the last 7 days, and I think it's ready to be put in the terarrium.

Would you:

a) leave it in its dark container with the saran wrap on for another 10 days
b) wrap it in foil and put it in the fridge
c) put it in the terrarium (perlite, no automation) and cross your fingers
d) put it in the terrarium and ask your roommate to fan it each day and try to instruct him on what to do with the water bottle, picking any early bloomers, etc

if you can trust your roomie i'd go with option D.
if you suspect he may be to thick to do it properly or might eat them all i'd go with option B.
forget option A which will either result in overlay or it will fruit anyway.
option C would result in poor growth due to the high co2 levels which will accumulate.

option E would involve spending a few bux on an aquarium pump and two timers...one for the pump and one for your light.

In my opinion. A casing which has been colonizing will remain dormant until the introduction of light, O2, and cold shock. I would just leave it alone and not think twice. If anything you come back to some serious surface colonization and then scratch and recase. No biggy. No worries man. Enjoy the break. Definately don't introduce foreign help!

I'm not so sure I want to mess with the pump & timer... my impression is those setups take some tweaking to get down right, and I have a ton of shit to do before leaving.

Thanks for the advice. Not sure what I'll do yet, especially in the light of seemingly contradictory opinions. Any others comments?

Reasons I am stupid:

1) I went to the store and bought tubes and fittings and such to hook up this coolmist to the terrarium. I guess I'll have a few days to play with it. I got a cool inline valve to help regulate.

2) I didn't sleep last night and still haven't crashed.

3) I'll be putting off client work, for the people whose phone calls I've been ignoring in order to futz with this humidifier.

4) I just got home and I'm procrastinating on pissing to write this list for you all. Priorities much?
