Fruiting Chamber - My own questions
    #3242448 - 10/11/04 12:14 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Ok, so I've got a grow chamber that is around: 2 1/2' in length, 1 1/2' wide, and around 2' deep. 

Do you think this is too big of a chamber to be using in a PMP?  Or will the perlite still provide enough humidity for it? 

Maybe I should use more perlite than 2" and then increase my water to 2/3" instead of 1/2"?

I will have 17 cakes in there at one point which is why it's such a big fruiting chamber.  I just want to make sure I'm not going to need more than what is suggested in perlite... probably a dumb question huh?

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

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?

Humidity will be maintained by perlite. The question is, will you have enough air circultion to maintain ideal air circulation. If you jam cakes and such, you might want to compensate for the additional air demand by the cakes. I think if you have anything bigger than profile 4000, you should be okay. I think 4000 gives you 120 L/hour. 2.5ft=30", 2ft=24" 1.5ft=18", so 30x24x18=12960cu in. 1 in =2.54cm so 1 cu in = 16.387 cu cm. So you have a 790.86cu cm. which translates to 79.1L. You should be fine with that set up IMO.
