Plant in the Fruiting Chamber?
    #2386385 - 02/28/04 12:43 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

A long time ago I read that someone thought it would be a good idea to grow a plant in with mushrooms, since they would feed off each other's gas waste. Given the warm and humid environment in a grow chamber, I began thinking this would be an excellent place to grow a tropical variety of plant. Sterilization would be a huge issue, but I think it could be accomplished by using hydroponics. Of course getting the lighting balanced would be a trick as well...
Anyway, I really want to know if anyone has tried this before. And if so, what were the results?

It wont help the mushies at all. just risk of bringing in a contam. The only reason to put a plant in the grow chamber would be because of a fruit fly/fungi gnat problem, in which case a venus fly trap would be helpful.

When I use the name "I", I'm talking about my friend of a friend named "Ivan".

A venus fly trap is not going to be effective against gnats or fruitflys. It takes considerable time for the trap to reset, and it can only reset a few times before it dies. Furthermore, those insects would be to small for the venus fly trap.
