Any Suggestions?
    #3096976 - 09/06/04 12:54 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I currently have 90 pounds of some really good mushroom compost and about 15 mycobags that i will use for spawn. what i really want to do is to have the least amount of maintenance and have a good flushes. I am planning on buying 10-15 18 gallon rubbermaids and setting up a powerful air pump(Rena 400) to all the rubbermaids. Im going to construct the rubbermaid to have a CO2 drain hole right above the substrate and a clear top for light to come in.
what else should i plan on doing to make this set up automatic?
any suggestions are welcome!

My lights will be on timers, should my air pump be too?

I think your air pump may need to be all the time if its serving 10-15 rubbermaids.

With that much spawn I fear you are going to run afoul of spreading yourself too thin. Especially if you case.

what do you mean by "spreading yourself too thin". Is 15 bags not enough for 90 pounds of compost?

Screw a airpump just do open air casings...it will take some attention so they dont dry out but your going for a first flush harvest evidently so why even have a air pump?

I suggest donating them to old people who've never tripped.

Think how bad it would be to live your whole life and then die without ever trippin'. That would suck.

I mean that managing this grow is going to be quite tough. If you want to case them then you are going to be spending a lot of time with your tubs and you may find yourself unable to focus on each tub well enough to get the most out of them.

christ on a stick you are gonna have a bunch of shrooms

I would leave that air pump on constantly

I have a similar setup (although smaller) and leave the pump on all the time. Keeps the air moving and the humidity stays right up where its supposed to be. I just have aliminum foil baking pans with the casings inside the tubs with perlite on the bottom

works like a charm

good luck - let me know how it works out for you

no this isnt my first time and of course im giving them away. I just want to grow once and get everything i need for a year. I dont want to have to worry about being caught up with maintaining a system and keeping it hidden for awhile. I rather only be paranoid for a month!

Hey Alounacara,
how do open air casings work? Do i just do all the fanning and misting by myself?
Cause i want a system where im not touching it till its ready to picked.

Also how should i incubate 10-15 rubbermaids? Should i let them sit there and let them generate their own heat OR put a space heater in the room where they will be?

incubate them in the terrarium, with the lid closed, the airpump off, and a black plastic sheet over the top. they'll be cosy without a heater, and the middle guys might overheat.

good luck with your project - i assume you are growing oyster mushrooms?
