dusty house
    #3274015 - 10/25/04 03:38 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

hi i will be doing my first grow shortly. i am quite worried about the dust content in my house because my walls are still sheetrock. its like theres dust EVERYWHERE but could this be a big issue?

another question --

my fruiting chamber will be under a chair so it wont be getting direct sunlight. also, it will probably be cloudy here anyway so it may not get much light at all. i was originally gonna use the perlite humidity method but i should i do something about the light ? even if i put it in a see-through plastice box? should i rig up some sort of 12/12 lighting? if so what kind?

yes you should rig up some type of lighting. You can use any type of lamp or LED's for lighting on a switch to control 12 hours on 12 off. Ideally you want a transparent lid but you could get away with an opaque one using LED's that are drilled into the top. You can search and find much info on this. Dust is not a problem, all types of little pathogens are. You might want in invest in a hepa purifier/ionizer to use in the bathroom where you should do your clean work. Dust will be fine where your teranium is. If you're using a PMP setup I would buy a filtered air pump or build your own filter. Hope this helps, Good luck

the dust can be a VERY big issue, dust contains high amounts of contams, but if you conceal yourself in a slightly dust free room ie the bathroom, and lysole spray the shit out of it and clean as much as possible it should be fine. You dont have to worry about the rest of the house too much, just watch out were you are going to incubate them, dont want a lot of dust there either, just clean up a bit.
