Reuse of Geolite? (PMP question)
    #2275686 - 01/26/04 09:19 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Afoaf just built a small PMP to do a test run. The chamber
is built to hold 5 or 6 1/2pt brf cakes.  There is enough H2O to
cover the airstone and enough geolite to cover the stone
totally (approx 3"). After about 15 min the humidity was
about 97.  The chamber is about  10"Hx15"Wx10"D.
There is an eggcrate light cover in there to suspend the cakes
off the geolite.

1) With the geolite/eggcrate in there the depth is 7".
    Is that an ok depth?

2) When she is ready to birth she wants to sterilize
    the Geolite. It was rinsed to get rid of the dust and
    she would like to stick it in the oven @300 for 1/2
    hr to kill any bugs. Think this will work?

3) Would a splash of H2O2 help keep things from
    growing in the H2O?


  Thanks for all the help!  :mushroom2:

1) Should be fine.  At worse, your babies will still find a way to grow, don't worry.

2) No need to sterilize the geolite.  If you just bought the rocks, simply rinse em and put strait in the chamber.

3) At least, that will help you deal better with your paranoia :wink:
    I always put a little bit of H202 in the water just for the heck of it.

A terrarium needs to be clean, not sterile.

1. You may have a few get bigger then that but it's no big deal. I've seen shrooms bend around in some pretty crazy ways.

2. That should work. You could just boil it too.

3. It should, but I've never added it myself and never saw a problem.

She ran the PMP all night and the sides and
top had condensation and a cigar hydrometer
inside said 99%.

Is this to high?

Thanks
