fruiting chamber question
    #2820925 - 06/23/04 02:28 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

i've checked the teks/faqs and i can't find proper instructions on how to build a fruiting chamber. does anybody have a good link or a instructions? i'm thinking i'll get a fairly large sized rubbermaid opaque container w/ a lid and cut out most of the lide and replace it with a couple sheets of shrinkwrap so the top of the chamber can get some light through it. i'll add perlite to the bottom as well as water also.

what is the need for the airpump? do i need it if i plan on regular fanning?

i'm planning on getting flourescent tube light. how high above the lid of the chamber should i place it?

thanks!

The airpump helps with air exchange but fanning twice a day along with an airpump or two wouldn't hurt. As far as light goes if there is enough light to see your cakes/casings then there is plenty.

Just hook up a coolmist 24/7 and your set just open it for checkups and harvest.

wouldn't this add too much humidity if it is on 24/7?

you can run acoolmizt 24/7 and if its too humid you can always hook up a pull pin style timer set for 30 min on 30 min off or 30 min on 1 hours off ect..

i have a much better idea of what's going on now but i really don't think i need airstones if i fan (electric fan, right? and if so how long should the fan run for?).  all i need to do is keep RH at the prescribed % along with fanning and i'm gravy?

so its all good if i put the PMP under my bed so the light from the window makes it possible for me to see cakes (even though it is still pretty dark and never gets direct sunlight?)

sorry for the bothersome ?s but the more i learn the more weight i can take off your shoulders in dealing with future generations of noobs :grin:
