Hummer idea and quick Q.
    #2349684 - 02/18/04 12:46 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

2 things

1- In the process of building a hummer, i have a few vicks, but i find them to be a pain to clean, and the rez needs topping off too often...

The plan , Take a 5 gal bucket, with lid, cut hole in center of lid and hot-glue a pc power suply type fan to it. wire it with any 9 to 12 v adapter, lover voltage, means lover fan speed, hot glue dryer hose under the lid to contain the air from the fan and run this hose about 2 inches from the bottom of the bucket, leave it dangling.

fill the bottom of the bucket with 3 inches of hydroton/growrocks and fill with watder to the 2 inch mark, just below the dryer hose.

Attach garden hose from the lid's outer diameter so that air has to travel from the fan, thru the hose thru the hydroton rocks, back up to the top of the lid, into the hose and into x number of chambers !!

Hook up a hepa filter to the top of the fan, sucking thru it and voila ! Makes for simple cleaning, lift the lid and add water, no sputtering wich vicks are prone to !! etc...

stay tuned for pictures!

2- Made a casing with wbs, store baught composted cow manure, and cust and rinsed straw, totally unpasteurized, just mixed in my kitchen and covered with foil, left on top of fridge..

The damn thing colonized without contams 100 % in 7 days, but sprouted hay sprouts !!!!!!!!  :shocked: should i let them grow ? or yank them? anyone ever have this happen before ?

Sprouts occur w/ inadequate pasteurization.

There is a similar occurance recently in the contam forum.

Poops, if you are building a hummer, I'd use a Fogger in the bucket to provide the humidity rather than the grow rocks. See Fungus Maximus' posts on foggers and homer set-ups (here or at nansnook).

Good idea !!!

do you know if the foggers can be run continuous ?

I was thinking a fish tank air pump with air stone, into the grow rocks.. but a foger would be much more efficient !!!..

Thanks Myco !

Yeah, they can be run continuous. They also sell a control hookup for them at a reasonable price. The controller has like 3 or 4 settings to control the amount of humidity put out. It may not cut it down enough that you would want to/need to run it continuously, but it will help some. (specifics will of course have to be tailored to your specific set-up).
