Would this be a good grow chamber?
    #2375824 - 02/25/04 12:50 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have recently found on ebay mini-tier indoor greenhouses. They are 17 dollars new. Regularly online you can find them for 24 dollars. Here is the link.

I am new to culturing, but I was thinking with some adjusting this could make a great grow chamber. What do you think? Anybody have any experience with these. For 17 dollars on Ebay for one I would definately think it would be worth the money.

yeah that would work really good, you would need to rig a coolmist to it for humidity and air exchange which is easy though.

What settings are adequate for the coolmist in a terrarium like the one i have pictured below. Right now i'm running mine on the lowest flow setting constantly. I also have a duct fan on a timer for a complete air exchange twice a day. A small amount of natural gas exchange through the crevices of the zipper occurs throughout the day too. A small amount of condesation accumulates at the bottom of the terrarium mostly.

that looks like a real sweet setup... is it airtight? The one at depot has an open bottom, I didn't think it would hold the humidity so well...

for the most part air tight. The teeth on the zipper let air out, that's about it. It was perfectly sealed until i put the zipper on, made of only three sheets of plastic, two bands of duct tape at the top and bottom levels as you can see. It holds humidity great, when i ran the coolmist at its 85% humidity setting it would turn on for a minute every hour or two. But the dilemma is i don't really know what an optimum setting for the coolmist is.

thought i ought to mention whats inside. I have 3 colinized quart jars of grain substrate innoculated with malabars, cased with straight coco coir. I incubated for about 3 days, patching on the second, they've been in the incubator for almost 3 days now. The optimum setting i'm seeking is for pinning these casings. I've heard high humidity is beneficial so I've been running it on the low mist setting constantly. Should i turn it up or down at this point, and when the pins start growing should i turn it down to say 85%?

the openbottom one's still hold humidity great. afoaf ahs a 3tier running with a cool mist constantly running (with about 6ft of garden hose) and a bottle on the end with a hole the size of a dime and the rh% stays about 90%.

its from home depot. Its just a 25'x10' plastic tarp for painting on. The shelf just happened to be 10' around so i cut one sheet for the sides and two sheets for the top and bottom.

btw, the zipper is just a 100' sleeping bag zipper from jo-ann fabrics.

You should put it outside the chamber and hose it in. You can control humidity by the length of hose also. Then you have another shelf for your stuff....and afoaf has had hhumidifiers break due to the unit it self getting to much condensation on/in the motor part when it was enclosed.
