Starting my first grow....checklist.
    #3096118 - 09/05/04 09:31 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Im finally going to start a mushroom grow.
So far I have:
12 half pint jars
vermiculite
perlite
brown rice flour
and I just ordered 3 seringes - B+, equador, and golden teacher.

basically the point of my post is to figure out what I need to buy next. ( what size bins, heaters, all that..)

Now I have questions about my incubator and fruiting chamber..
Once Im done incubating, can I use the same rubbermaid bin for my fruiting chamber? what makes a fruiting chamber any different then a incubator?

This is what I understand about an incubator at this point. It needs to keep a temp of ~86 degrees...I get this heat from a submersible fish tank heater. I went to wal mart today to check those out. Theres the 50w, 100w, and a 200w...which one would you guys recommend? From what I understand, Im suppost to attach the heater to the bottem of the bin and fill with water...then put another bin on top of that where I will keep my jars in....Is this how most growers do it? Is there an easier, more common method?

Also, the incubator must be in complete darkness correct?

Now for the fruiting chamber...I know that it needs a source of light shining through somewhere. and about an inch of perlite on the bottem.....What temps and humidity does fruiting require?

Please help me out get started with this grow :smile: Any details would be appriciated..

Thnx all!





:cool:

First off, Do u have a pc? If not get one.
get urself two 30 gal/114 L or similar size. U choose casue u know the size of ur grow
DO NOT get a heater from walmart unless they just started carrying titanium or pyrex
cause regular ones with break in no time. U will just be throwing money out the window.
goto a pet store and get a 200watt titanium or pyrex submersible. they are a bit more
money but u only need one casue the others will break in no time guranteed.

the difference between and incubator and fruiting chamber is heat.
ull be working to keep the incubator hot while after that u will be working to keep
the fruiting chamber cold.

No light for incubation.
worry about 1 step at a time. work on ur incubator now cause ull have a few weeks
to get ur fruiting chamber ready while u wait.

Heres information ANNO provides about building the incubator u speak of:
http://www.fungifun.org/pf/incubator.htm

Also i notice u have no rating so i gave u a five cause it looks like ur headed on the
right track.
Good Luck!

ricelicker, thats right. thnx for reminding me.

lysol is for keeping the room clean for inoculation and the peroxide is for cleaning off the needle after torching it. right? is there any other uses for peroxide?

You might want to get an air pump w/ some air stones too so that you dont have to fan your fruiting chamber.
