i believe that there was this rather large discussion in the advanced forum, that talked about how certain things weren't neccisary. if you were to put charcoal in your terrarium to absorb CO2 of course it would lower the content of CO2, but eventually you'd still need to fan to introduce more O2 that's being used by the fungi. rather than trying to remove CO2 or flood your terrarium with O2, why not just put a fan or something on it? you'd get good are exchange, and then all this O2 CO2 stuff wouldn't be nearly as important...for example: you could cut a hole in your terrarium, put a 12v computer fan there...put something like a tyvek filter on top of the fan to keep icky stuff out, and it would would most likely work wonderfully. most terrariums aren't perfectly air tight around the lid, so the built up pressure would just escape through the seems between the lid and the terrarium....just a thought.

don't run the fan on a 24 hour cycle...maybe 15 minutes a day 4-6 times a day...if the RH is really low where you live set your cakes/casings whatever you use on perlite or geolite. i prefer perlite unless i'm growing pot in which case i use geolite.

i was just thinking of it and it seemed a good way. at least would help for a neglect tek or somthing.

or perhaps a casing of charcoal. that would be neat

fans on a timer are the best thing for automating the introduction of fresh air into your grow chamber :smile:

Dude has fans at both ends of the grow chamber...One pushing air in, one pushing air out. Both ends are covered by poly fill. Intake is sprayed with lysol twice a week. This creates a fast way to get oxygen enriched air inside the container. Its all setup on a timer that is on for 1 minute, 20 times a day.

When you work as much as I do, it makes it tough to fan you grow chamber 3-5 times a day :grin:

Nothing absorbs CO2 like damp lime.
