Poor mans terarium.?
    #2520908 - 04/03/04 08:47 AM (14 years, 20 days ago)

:tongue2: My first attempt at innoculating 12 jars was a failure, all became contaminated. Recently,I innoculated just one jar and it is pretty much fully collonised with no sign of contams. I had considered casing, but thought my first time I may aswell just try and fruit straight off the rice cake.

So, I have a large rubber maid container...I will fill this with geolite to a few inchs off the bottom. Then put an inch or so of water in the bottom and sit the rice cake on top of the geolite. I have a decent air pump which will have a decent air stone attached to it and immersed under the geolite/water. When I did this last time, it seemed to provide decent humidity(some condensation)...is this adequate?

I had thought, I could alternativly put a small fish tank full of water in the terrarium which has a fish tank heater in it to provide warmth. And also place the air stone in there aswell, so as to provide the humidty within the terrerium. Would this work well, or should I just stick the air stone under the geolite and forget the fishtank/heater all together?

If I go with just the typical poor mans terrerium, would it be a good idea to place a fish tank heater under the geolite/water? If the temp isn't high enough?

Ah well, one rice cake, time will tell. What could I hope to yield off of one rice cake?

Thank you. :wink:

yep thats how you build a PmP
unless your room temps are in the 60's you probably won't need the heater
yield off one cake is anywhere from 0-7 dry grams.
