A few questions
    #3354459 - 11/13/04 04:09 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

My first spores showed up today (Thai Koh Samui Super Strain), and i came up with a few questions:

1)Does the lid need to be kept on the fruiting chamber while its fruiting? So that would mean i may OR may not need a plastic container taller than 6" so that the lid will fit over the fruits.

2)What temps in general should i keep the fruiting chamber at?

3)I checked Wal-Mart and Fred Meyer and neither have vermiculite this time of year. Where should i go? Im not sure if nurserys are open but i could check, dont know if they would even have it.

4)With casing, would a thicker case(say 4") be better than a thinner case (3")?

Thanks in advance.

You will want a container with a tight fitting lid so you can keep your humidity high.
Your fruiting chamber should be at the mid 70's.
And check around a bit more for vermiculite its not hard to find at all, try checking places like home depot.. even in most malls if they have a gardening section.
I'm not too sure about the casing though.
Good luck man!

even a flourist might be able to get you some verm.... garden centers.. hydro shops generaly have it also.

if you case PF tek stuff 4" casing layer is massivly thick.. you want more like 1/4"
