best home to use?
    #3162880 - 09/22/04 01:00 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

i was thinking the styrofoam cooler as the tek says, anyother ideas, maybe something that'll hold 9 or 10 cakes? i'm going the sonic humidifyer route, should i stick to that? is it going to make a big enough difference if space and money are an issue.just asking, this is my first time.

my shrooms are starting to come out like little worms...will they be ok for a few days if i don't put them in a home till the weekend?

thanks!

For the money you're going to spend on an ultrasonic you could go to walmart and buy a rubbermaid tub,some lava rock, an air pump, and a couple of bubble stones/wands and have a kick ass poor mans pod. Are your shrooms in jars right now or what?

yeah, go with the PMP. go buy a rubbermaid container. you could do the coolmist, but i'd go with the PMP methods of geolite/lava rock/perlite on the bottom with a bubbler like atomic said.

i don't think your mushrooms will be ok unless they're still in the jars...

the sonic won't be worth your money unless you have a large container to attach it to. you'll also have to buy tubing and hook-ups... as well as some kind of sealant. go with the PMP until you get some more money, it's working fine for me.

I have to agree with Atomic1 and ZeroArmy27 on this one.  It's just not worth the extra money and time you will spend on buying and hooking up your humidifier.  Also, in a smaller terrarium there have been reports of people getting WAY too much condensation on their mycelium and fruits, causing them to either completely stall or just turn into fuzzy mycelium.  (Excess water can lead to contams as well)

If you're growing on an average person's scale (enough for yourself and maybe a few friends to eat until the next batch is ready), then the poor mans pod will be more than efficient for your needs.

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?
