Mushroom tent pics and 1st result
    #27127025 - 01/04/21 10:12 PM (18 days, 22 hours ago)

Got 99% of the items needed for my legit grow tent setup. Wanted to include pics of the setup and some first results with buckets.

Tent is 32x32x62. Have 4" vivosun fan - 195cfm - plugged into infinite cycle timer to refresh air 6 times an hour. My humidifier is my weak link, as I'm waiting on one more part so I can setup a 5gal mister, my 3disc fogger is waiting in a box at the moment. The humidifier is hooked up to my digiten humidity controller set to run at 70%rh and turn off at 82%rh. Will bump that up when I finish my humidifier. Led light strip is 6000k and waterproof. Plugged into a timer for 12hr on/12hr off. The exhaust pipe is currently drier venting which I plan on upgrading to 4" PVC shortly. Cut my 4" hole through an old coal chute in my basement. Lastly, I need to get a drier vent set up inside the FC so when the fan draws air in, it opens and then closes at shut off. That's called a damper I believe.

I just started getting some mushrooms growing in buckets. I'm curious what you think if these. They don't look perfect, but maybe keener eyes can spot ways I can dial in my setup. Do these mushrooms look okay? More fae needed, or higher humidity? The FC is hovering around 60-65F right now, so maybe its a bit cold for Blue oyster. Keep in mind, I grew these from throwing an old mushroom kit into pasteurized straw.

Would love feedback 👍🍄👍

Got a flapper on the inside of your tents exhaust port?  Keep your humidity from leaking when not doing FAE.  Also since your exhaust is ported up you might get condensation buildup in the tube.  May need to pole a few holes and set a drip pan to circumvent it falling back into your fan.

That's the word, flapper. I/m grabbing one today. Good point in the holes with drip pan for now. I'm pretty rural so finding some of these things is challenging. Thanks

Edit: just thinking, a flapper for the exhaust port and one for creating an intake valve on the tent. Right now it's sucking in the walls because it's trying to draw fresh air from a closed tent. So the flapper on an intake should solve that. Didn't think about the exhaust port. The store carries a rectangular flapper for external of a house, like a drier vent. That works for the intake, but not sure about how to get on for the exhaust port. Can you make a flapper pretty easily?

That's why I said +/- pressure fans.  You prob won't need a fan for the + pressure in since your tents small.  Just reverse the flapper on the + sides air intake mirror to the - side so it only flaps when sucking in air instead of pushing out.  Here's what I got from the hardware store near the dryer vent stuff.

If you are having problems with water dripping I would use a condensate pump and pump it to a sink or out a window that way you will not have to deal with dumping a pan or bucket. the pump will only turn on when the water get so deep you can adjust the depth...

If you have to make an ebay bid use Gixen to snipe the bid instead of getting into a bid war...

Hey thanks man. I was worried the caps were deformed or something. Or that they aren't big enough. But good to know things are looking good!

What are they? I just looked at the stem and it looks like you have the right amount of FAE.

Those look great and they still have maybe a day to go. GREAT JOB!! Watch the edges when they start to flatten out harvest them.

Nice work.
Jumping in here. Im having trouble keeping surface conditions of trays in a tent. Humidity is through the roof. I am using a disc fogger as well and it has no trouble pumping out enough fog, I have had to turn it down. Its set up within the tent and a fan blows it up a pipe near to the ceiling going up in the middle of the tent. surely if the humidity is high like a 100 for most of the time then the surface should have slow evaporation , when it is in fact evaporating really fast.

try pumping it in the bottom of the tent as humid air is less dense and rises.

Is it due to density that its rises? Im no expert Obvs! But wouldn’t  humid air be denser, due to the extra water content? Educate me!

Woah. Totally counterintuitive, but apparently true. TIL.

I think ultrasonic humidifiers make sufficiently small droplets that quickly evaporate into water vapor humidifying the air. some of the larger droplets will work their way to the bottom while the humid air will be rising to the top.
