final phase questions
    #3186193 - 09/27/04 02:06 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

i'm using the pmp.  If i were to use lava rock, air stones, and an air pump (profile 5500), i have a few quesitons before i put them in their new home.

1) should i cold shock/rehydrate the cakes?....some are already growing in the jar...do i have to pick them off before doing this?

2)  is it better to have a a see through rubbermaid or does it matter?  i'll be opening it once or twice a day to fan it anyway, so should i just trust em?  :cool:

3)do i put the cakes directly on the lava rock after filling the pmp with water...or on a piece of tin foil.

4)are black lights the same as a fleurescant lights?  i remember reading about getting a light with a wide spectrum of color, not sure if it's the same thing.

5)what's the best way to regulate the temperature inside the pmp?  will it do it itself?...i'm looking for the optimum 86, where will it settle?

6) PLEASE...is there anything else i'm missing?  am i good to go after making sure of these things?  i just want to do this right, and you guys have been a huge help thus far.

THANKS!

1) Some shrooms? if so, don?t cold shock/dunk wait till you harvest.
2) Better see through, at least at the top
3) I don?t recommend that, better tin foil or the jar?s lid
4) Don?t really know, but believe it?s not the same.
5) No, you?re not incubating in the PMP you?re fruiting 23-25?C.
6) Yes, buy an hygrometer.

4)Don't use a blacklight, get a flouro or use indirect sunlight. Blacklights cause mutations if i recall correctly.
5)Room temp. should be ok, 70-75 f

1)how many times a day should i fan? I've heard once, to 4 times a day

2)should i worry about excess moisture buildup, or does fanning take care of that.

*3*) how do i insert the hoses... so that they're air tight right?..and would i find these hoses WITH the air pump, or buy them seperately at ________ (fill in the blank..walmart, etc...

thanks again!

1) If you have a fish tank bubbler going and it?s big enough to change the air by itself, you don?t need to fan at all. But min. 2 times a day. As important is the air exchange as it is to keep a high RH.
2) Don?t worry about that, you want 100% RH for knots to form then you want 90% to mature the fruits. If the RH is 100% once fruits form and you can?t get it down, just fan more or leave the lid partially open, only a gap.
3) Holes in the bin then siliconed. You can get hoses and air bubblers at any pet shop.

the pmp is pretty much self-sufficient. you can fan it once a day and be fine.

Walmart or any pet shop like Semilanceata said would have the hoses. They'll be right by the pumps at walmart.
