Closet humidification setup
    #2250312 - 01/18/04 01:17 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hi all! This is my first post here! I have a theoretical question about a grow setup that is still in the planning stages. The mycelium will be grown on finch seed/vermiculite in pint jars, then cased, likely with 50/50+ or coco coir. My question is about using a closet as a large terrarium. It is about 3x3x8', and the plan was to put a couple shelves in so trays of casings could sit in a humid environment provided by a humidifier. It is a small Kaz vaporizor that uses hot steam. Would this provide enough humidity in the small closet? Air exchange would be maintained by opening the closet door and fanning several times daily.

could be a nice set up! id use some really good paint that is antibactiral and antifungle and paint the whole closet with it...and im not sure about the "hot humidifier" mabey that much room the steam would cool off enough to be ok id make sure it dosnt get to hot in there before you put your cassings in there..

I agree about the potential for mouldy walls... I think that could be remedied by regular cleaning or misting with lysol. I am not as worried about temperatures because of the door will be opened regularly to let cool air in, and the vapor stream will not be pointed anywhere near the growing fungi

I run a coolmist 24/7 and use a ultrasonic every two hours for 5 minutes.







I would not use the hot steam.

^^^^^^^

do it like that, there's a ton of coverable shelved greenhouses out there, and it beats the hell out of having a rotten, mold infested, closet leaking condensation into your apartment. Also by isolating things into compartments your risk of spreading contams between casings is reduced dramatically.

yeh buid an inclosed greenhouse or a poor mans pod. I think this will work MUCH better for MUCH less effort. good luck.
