From what i have been reading, iodine might be the way to go. You do not need to add much at all, but the exact ratio escapes me. Someone will answer that for ya.

Nice looking set-up. I was thinking of trying something very similar. Where did you come across the plastic to cover it? Ive seen a few setups with plastic that even zips up the front. Looks quite neat, and id like to get a hold of something similar.

Hey, I'm new to this but what light's are needed to grow if any, and does it depend on the mushroom. Anyway I'm thinking of using fluorescents.

If you do use tap... allow it to breath for one day prior to use. (Tap contains Chlorene and Chloramine. You can't do anything about chloramine, but chlorene will evaporate into the air.)

Distilled water is pretty damn cheap man. I buy it for $.50 a gallon at the grocery store, and thats probably enough for at least a week, probably two.

you dont need distilled water, but make sure if you dont have a water softener to use a water purifier that attaches to the sink. They are $18 at kmart for the Pur brand. If you don't you're gonna have to buy new humidifiers in about 2 monthes. My tap water is from a well... It's not chlorinated. Good choice on the 4 tier design.
Second, you'll want to add a drop or two of iodine per humidifier. I dont bother with adding anything to my humidifiers, but a lot of shroomerites do.
Last, when you get those first 2 racks filled, you're gonna want better lighting for the bottom two shelves. That light wont do it when there is casings on the top two shelves.

I think it'd be wise to PM me, a friend has had this exact setup for quite a while. later, Derx

Just to let you know, you'll still have to mist your casing/cakes....Just an ush won't get them wet enough...trust me...they're nice to have since they provide humidity and fresh air.  just buy distilled water...don't be a jew...you already got this far....Add 1/2 bottle of hydrogen peroxide per gallon.  This may be a little too much but from what I've seen it doesn't cause any harm.  :mushroom2:

Maybe for some but per closet (large martha sized), my shrooms drink closer to 7 gallons per week. 15 gallons of water every week when I can just add tap as I have since I've grown without issues seems pointless. Its not even the money either but I sure as hell dont feel like lugging home 15 gallons a week on top of the 5 we drink ourselves in this house.

That's alot of damn water...afoafoaf uses only 1 gallon every 3 weeks. He/she sprays directly the cakes and casing with distilled water. Turns on the ush 2 times a day for about 5-10 minutes. Sprays once a day. Shrooms turned out excellent. Sounds like your over doing it. Peace Rudiger420 ps...I recommend putting a tupperwater container on the bottom shelf full of dry perlite...Eventually the perlite will become wet from the ush. And water will collect in the tupperware...not much though....couldn't hurt. maybe a 56 qt. under the bed type tupperware. I bet it fit perfectly

Well perhaps I am overdoing it.



But I think they like being over done .

Shrooms are 90% water...if you want to grow 1 pound of dry mushrooms, thats 9 pounds of water.

uhm yeah, I go through like a gallon in 24 hours. no way in hell im ever going to buy distilled water. I simply add idophor iodine, which is used to sterilise dishes in the food industry, and also used to sterilize buckets in the brewing process. I use 5-10 drops per gallon, and it works GREAT! I only clean the humidifiers out once a month with bleach now. h202 is too expensive to be using 8 ounces every gallon, IMO. Scat- your trays of shrooms look familiar :wink:
