Will this terrium be big enought ?? stealth underbed grow
    #3434955 - 12/01/04 11:08 PM (12 years, 8 days ago)

This will be my first grow and I bought 2 of these for the stealthyness of them.

I am using the PFtek method with 1/2 pint canning jars.
im concerned that 7" high wont be enough height for for shrroms on top of the cake. what do you think ?? should I take these back and get something bigger ?

Sorry to stray from you question, as I don't know the answer...but where did you buy that, roughly how much did it run you...and are those plugs at the bottom? Looks handy for air exchange...

If you have the room, you might want to get them a bit larger...that would be my guess. If anything else just for the added working space. The question in my mind is why not?

Peace

So are historians going to look back at 'The Great Cake Eaters'? Damn. That was a backwards step in the evolutionary process. We left Shroomheads in the dust. Welcome to the new age of Vermheads.

Yea, I'm pretty sure that won't be high enough for cakes. You could try a casing, that might work. Otherwise I think you'll have to get something a bit taller. I think the shrooms need a good 4-5" themselves.

Well I suppose it depends on what you're using for a substrate. You say you're using half pint cakes? Well is the 7" from the cake to the cover of the tub or is it the total depth of the tub? Keep in mind that just because a mushroom hits the top of the terrarium doesn't mean its going to stop growing/die/explode or anything crazy, it'll just not grow straight up. You should be fine with that. Exactly how deep is that tub? It'd be nice for my bulk grow I'm planning. It really only needs to be about a foot tall for me, 5" for the straw/poo, 1" for casing layer, and 6" for shrooms to grow. That'd be oh so ideal.

They are wheels on the bottom so they can slide from underneathe the bed. Since this is my first time I am goin with pf tek, but casing seems to be where its at.

My chamber is 6 1/2 inches and its fine. It's less than that with the layer of perlite. Sometimes the shrooms touch the top of it, but it doesn't hurt them.

And oh yah, I think I know where he got those ... Linens and Things maybe? haha. I work there and its the only place I've ever seen them. Working at Linens and Things is bomb for growing mushrooms. I snagged a digital thermometer from there, I'm gonna sneak out a humidifier, and I get a 25% discount on anything I can't sneak out, haha. They don't really care in there, so gettin free stuff is easy if you work there. Maybe not right but I only take what I can't affoard, in a tight financial spot at the moment. Ah well ...

Do it up bro ... you'll be fine, you'll just have bent shrooms. If anyone knows of any good bins that are like say 2'x3' or roughly those dimensions, something decent sized, and about a foot tall, drop me a line. I really could use something like that.

Hmmm. Def. not tall enough if you're growing mushrooms with tall stems and cakes would be really hard unless you like sliced them up. A casing would work but they'd probably touch the top when they're viels would be nearing coming off, so u'd probably have to jus take them off early, it'd be hard to keep the humidity right with the top off lol, but it can be done with a thin substrate and a thin casing. Doesn't have to exactly be thin thin, i just wouldnt go for a 2in sub. and a 1in casing layer, you'd only have like 4 inches for the mushrooms to grow...i'd probably go with about a 1 1/2 inch substrate and about a 1/2 inch to an inch layer of casing but it's all up to you and what you think. Gl, i hope it works out or you find a better place to cultivate, it's never a good idea to have to grow in the dark if ya know what i mean( what a gay pun lol) Gl man and stay safe,
later

7" total. Your cakes will be fine. Mine are 300ml cakes, which is bigger than 1/2 pint so they have less room. Most of the big ones come off the bottom and have to bend upwards so those normally don't reach. When they get to the top they are normally close to done, but all it does is bend them, not hurt them.

i think im going to take these back tonight and get something bigger. underbed grow idea is being trashed. Im going to get bigger things for the closet and switch the incandescent light in tthe closet to a flouro so they think they are getting some real light.

I'm just curious...how are you going to introduce light w/o a clear top? You got something up your sleeve or something?

they have clear sides, do they need light from above ?? the solid top might help cause they will grow towards the light, which would be to the sides so that might help my small terrium problem

You could always just install a small fluoro under the lid.

Your right about them growing towards the light so they won't grow up as much, but they will grow funky (not in a bad way) since light will be coming from all directions.

You might wanna put like black construction paper/black spraypaint/black electrical tape or something around the sides to keep the only light coming from the top of the terrarium. That'll help keep the pinset even and shrooms growing straight up.

Just wanted to further add that they have those exact tubs at the Wal Mart here as well.
