garage setup: opinions
    #2467828 - 03/24/04 04:11 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hey all,

I'm building a setup for my garage: I live in Scotland, so it gets pretty cold out there (a few degrees above freezing most nights). Here's a brief description; Any feedback or potential problems given would be very helpful. Potential areas of concern are whether or not heating will be adequate, and whether or not air exchange will be sufficient.

The basic structure is a humidity tent 1.5m high, 1m across and 0.5m deep. I plan to have two 0.5m levels for casings and a 0.5m space at the bottom for equipment.

Heat and air exchange are provided by a large tray of water and hydroleca with two submerged airstones and an aquarium heater with thermostat set to about 29 degrees Celcius at the bottom of the structure.

Additional heat and air exchange is provided by a warm air humidifier with the air intake ducted to the outside of the structure, turned on 15mins every hour.

20-25cm deep substrate trays will be used filled with pasteurised straw/dung and cased, and placed on the two 0.5m high growing shelves.



Do the dimensions sound sufficient for unrestricted mushroom growth? Are there any factors I haven't considered? Any help would be gratefully welcomed.

Thanks all,

-Odiumjunkie

sounds like the only problem could be keeping a constant ambient temp.

The rest sounds ok
