1st Time Grower, Wish Me Luck
    #2724857 - 05/24/04 11:05 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

My friends and I are going to be growing mushrooms over the summer. We will be getting the following: 12 BRF sterlized jars and 20 cc EQ strain syringe. We plan on using a Rubbermaid tubware thing as the fruiting chamber with an opening at the top on the lid (the opening will then have layers of seran wrap over it taped. Then we will place the fruiting chamber up in my friend's attic with a blue light over it. If we put it in the attic, which is basically the only place possible to put it, would we have to air it out everyday and have a humidifier? Or is the attic enough humidity for the shrooms? We can only probably air the shrooms out about 3x a week for only 5 minutes. Is this okay? If not please explain. Thank you for your help (in advance). :mushroom2:

Hate to burst your bubble, but you ought to take a temperature reading of your attic for a few days before going too much expense or trouble. Most california attics in the summer probably are much too hot to grow shrooms in.

There are all kinds of reasons the attic isn?t going to work.

Well we will have a flourescent light over the chamber. I'm guessing the humidity will be from 85-95% in an attic (may be wrong). And instead of fresh air changes 1-3 per hour can i just poke a very small hole in the chamber?

85%-95% in an attic?!? I highly doubt this and suggest perlite humidifacation. You may want to just build a poor mans pod, as this would remove the need to constantly fan.

Don't know ALOT about ambient humidity in cali but i can guarantee it won't be enough in an attic. Attics are usually the hottest place in the house and concidering it's almost summer and your in cali which is already a very warm place it's gonna get really really really hot in that attic. Most likely heat would be your biggest problem, not humidity. haha but i could be wrong  :wink:

Yeah, it will not grow in the attic. WAY WAY WAY to hot up there, especially in the summer. If you have ever had to crawl up in that bastard(the attic) to do any work you would know.
