Fruiting Chamber Help...
    #2477091 - 03/26/04 03:22 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

OK...

I got a flash submersible fishtank heater with thermostat today (goes up to 35 degrees).

I also got 2 12V dc computer fans (dunno how to wire them up, though...)

I have stuffed my wife's lingerie into a cardboard box and borrowed her plastic storage box (Shhhh... I'll buy 1 on the weekend, just testing some stuff)

I don't got perlite (can't read the labels, so don't know what I'm buying), but I do got some pretty porous looking volcanic rock stuff (boil it up and add a little h2o2??)

I don't got an air filter or an airstone (she won't notice the lingerie for a while, but I don't think I'd better flush the fish down the toilet...)

I don't got the tiniest bit of 'technical aptitude' and 0 handyman skills...

I've been reading a LOT of teks, but would still value anyone's opinions as to what is the best (and simplest) way to go with what I have...

large tuppeware....goto meijer/walkmart/lowes and buy perlite...line the bottom with 1-2inches and make it almost swampy with water...seal and fan 3 times a day.

you will be all set. i am not sure on the volcanic rock when not having a airstone/bubbler

Herein lies a big part of the problem... I'm in a rural city in Japan. The dep't store does have some stuff, but I can't read and bilingual dictionaries don't even touch this stuff (so I also can't ask).

So... I gotta do this w/out perlite.

Haha. Japan. If you get caught cultivating drugs in Japan don't they issue a firing squad to execute you on some dirty street?

I have a question about the fruiting chamber as well... my incubator will be around 80-82 degrees... but if i use the double container incubator... can i just use another rubbermade as my fruiting chamber and keep it in the 80-82 degree evnvironment?

does temp matter much as long as its above 70 degrees when furiting?

I figure if when colonising, if 8-82 is ideal for that, i figured 80-82 would be ideal for fruiting as well?

nah, fruit it around 70-75 degrees F. Do you know what perlite looks like sakura? It's really light and brilliant white. very small chunks. good luck mate.

Ahhh! Really light (you can't tell that from Google image search!)

I wasn't sure if was looking at perlite or decorative garden stones... Knowing that it's really light is a BIG help.

Cheers.
