my own pod
    #2192123 - 12/20/03 02:22 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I used a similar pod like device about a year ago...no bitches...It works fine. But only 5 Half pints at a time??? Come on I'm too impatient for that. I am in the process of building my own version with the same principal but it will hold about 20-30 cakes. I will post a grow log in the pics forum. I guess my only question is that I am using a semi transparent rubbermaid container (90% see through) and the top is flat. I am expecting a little "rain" on the cakes. Does anyone out there anticipate this as being a major prob? I have been off the forum for a while...and I have seen some others making their own...maybe already answered...so point me to the posts please....Thanks in advance

the rain or condensation isn't a problem in my opinion but i think that a clear container could possibly cause problems. cover the sides or go w/ a container that has solid sides. lg. dark rubbermaids w/ a hole cut in the lid replaced w/ plexi-glass work well.

In my understanding of the process...the clear container shouldn't be a prob as it is a fruiting chamber only. The jars are kept in the dark until birthed. Once birthed, the light source is on/off in 12 hour cycles. My light is directly overhead.

Condensation occurs when there's a big temp difference between inside and outside the pod. For some reason, I realized that it's always a little hotter inside the pod than in the room.

Once I had some major condensation on the inside of the lid surface and notice it was quite cold in my room (around 62F). I started to heat a little bit at 70F and now no more condensation.

I think you knew that anyway..

Thank you fish , my friend was worried that he did not have enough moisture as there was no condensation , but he is using ambient tempature in his pod . He really appreciated this information .
