Hows this sound....
    #3339868 - 11/10/04 03:30 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Okay, i have yet to actually cultivate mushrooms. If everything goes according to plan i will be starting on friday (suppose the spores get here).

I plan on doing the BRF Cakes with Verm. and Perilite; Just a few areas that i had questions on that i couldn't find through searches...

1) I just use a regular aquarium heater? How many watts? im thinking  50 watts should be good.

2) 90% humidity, 80 degrees F, 2" Perilite 1" H2O, Fan every 3-4 hours?

3a) If i use perilite to control my humidity do i need to mist the sides of the container or have an aquarium air system?

3b) If i need (or is recommended) an aquarium air system what size (or whats the equation) should i get? Im using just a rubbermade letter/legal size bin.

4) Where can i purchase Verm. and Perilite (Actual stores and websites)? Preferably actual stores.

5) How do i preserve syringes? how about prints? Im thinking just freeze um then thaw um out at room temp.

6) With this setup whats your guesstimate on the yield of these cakes? Im expecting (i know, expectations are premeditated resentments) approx. 3 - 3.5 grams / cake.

7) Will christmas lights placed approx. 3 inches above the container be sufficiant for lighting?


------------


Now i know that some of you are gonna flame me that i could search for some of these answers, but im still curious to what you think.

Any answers are greatly appreciated and have a trippy day.

Use the 'Search' function - will probably help you find answers to almost every one of those questions :wink:

You mean perlite in the jars?  Don't do that.  Use max fruiting formula.

1/4cup BRF
1/2cup verm
60cc water.

For few bucks more get a bigger one.  Bigger is better when it comes to aquarium heaters.

2) 90% humidity, 80 degrees F, 2" Perilite 1" H2O, Fan every 3-4 hours?




Try PMP.  It'll save you all that fanning and get much better results.  And yeah, you can use perlite in PMP.  I suggest 3" perlite, 1.5" water.

3a) If i use perilite to control my humidity do i need to mist the sides of the container or have an aquarium air system?





If you use perlite alone, you'll need to mist after fanning 3-5 times a day or more.  With PMP, neither is required.

Quote:


3b) If i need (or is recommended) an aquarium air system what size (or whats the equation) should i get? Im using just a rubbermade letter/legal size bin.





Now we are talking PMP.  Air pumps are rated in liters per hour.  For the simplicity, get an air pump that will move 2-3 times chamber volume per hour.  So, if your tub(pod) is 45qts, then you want a pump that does at least 90 lister per hour.

Here again, bigger is better, especially with casing.

Quote:


4) Where can i purchase Verm. and Perilite (Actual stores and websites)? Preferably actual stores.





Walmart, homedepot, lowes, k-mart, target, garden centers, some 99 cent stores...  You can call them and ask before you go there.

Quote:


5) How do i preserve syringes? how about prints? Im thinking just freeze um then thaw um out at room temp.




Just store in the fridge(not freezer) in a clean ziplock bag.
For long term storage take a print from your harvest.

6) With this setup whats your guesstimate on the yield of these cakes? Im expecting (i know, expectations are premeditated resentments) approx. 3 - 3.5 grams / cake.





We won't discuss this now.  It's too hard tell.  We'll discuss this more as you get more informed and see how your grow goes and what setup you make.

Quote:


7) Will christmas lights placed approx. 3 inches above the container be sufficiant for lighting?





Yes, but you have to make a plastic window or something like that if you have an opaque lid or semi-transparent.  Don't light them from the sides. 

Now go read some more. :wink:

Good Luck
