Fruiting Chamber
    #3107301 - 09/08/04 09:07 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

As cold weather is approaching, I am preparing my fruiting chamber. I just have a few questions I would like to ask as I'm going about this.

First, I have a large tupperware tub with an opaque lid. I am wondering if just perilite will work for my humidification. If so that will save me money on the aquarium heater. Should any heat problems arise (i.e. too low temp) I will utilize fucknuckle's technique of using the christmas lights.

I'm sorry to ask this question, as it's probably already been asked before, but how much perilite will I line the bottom with? 2"? I know that lava rock and geolite work also, but I only have perilite.

Would putting an air pump/polyfilled hole be superior to fanning, since I am at work 8 hours a day? I have heard some people say that they hardly interact with their mushrooms at all though and have great flushes.

For the lid to allow light in for pinning, I plan on cutting a 12"x12" square out of my lid and apply a piece of clear plexiglass, and hinge the removed piece of tupperware plastic overtop of the plexiglass again to create a make-shift window.

Temp/Humidity gauge will be attached to accurately monitor the inside of my chamber.

Is there anything I'm forgetting?

Thanks everyone!

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

Perlite will work for your humidification.

An aquarium heater adds optimum temperature to your setup, not humdity so no, unfortunately it will not save you money on your heater.

Check the perlite faq for instructions.


Airpump is superior because it is automatic yes.

Sounds like you are not forgetting anything.

Hope this helps :smile:
