need last minute opinions after reading numerous teks & postings
    #3304376 - 11/01/04 01:11 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

okay so i've read numerous relevant teks and postings, and would just like to get opinions/corrections. this is how i will be setting up:
substrate: ryche hawk's growing substrate (the one w/ finch seed, vermi, flax, etc.) with malabar strain
terrarium: tub in tub using a submersible heater with spacers to make more water room on the bottom and also so the water can go up the sides halfway. in the dry tub, i will have a layer of perlite on the bottom. on top of the perlite, will be multiple aluminum pans where i will be using a perlite bottom, crumbled substrate, and a verm/peat moss casing layer. i'm open to changes on the casing layer, but would prefer to avoid the premixed sta-green verm. peat moss, limestone, etc. thing because for me last time it lived up to its name and gave me 4 green terrariums. (what is the popular on preferred casings anyway?)
misc. stuff: 1) do i truely need to add an air pump to the terrarium or is that only a frill? 2)i will be putting a blue light above each terrarium. 3) a humidity gauge and thermometer will be in each terrarium. 4) i am even considering using an empty closet lined in aluminum foil. i guess half so that theres no moisture on wood which may be bad in some way, & so the temperature is more easily kept & i can wipe it often with an alcohol rag to keep it completely sterile, which i am striving for.
NOW, what is the opinions? i apologize for being long-winded, and anything input is greatly appreciated. oh and lastly for clarity, the optimal temp. for mycelin growth is 86 and pinning/fruiting is 75 right with a 90% humidity for casings right?

never let life get you down. when the world starts screwing with you, get back at it by pooping in a bird nest.

for the casing layer use 50/50+ and make sure you sterlize it. you dont have to have an air pump but your going to need to fan 2-3 times a day. temp and humidity you got right on.
