That setup looks pretty complicated, I like to simplify things. You don't need a HEPA box running filtered air into your terrarium really, afterall you're going to introduce unsterile air to your chamber at one point or another...possibly many times!

Also, without knowing exactly what equipment you have there and how you plan on running it, it's difficult to give you good advice about how your idea will turn out. Lots and lots of variables we can't see here. Check out other members grow chambers and logs, and figure out what setup will work best for you.


Just in case you haven't seen the terrarium page yet:

if u realy want to filter the water then it seems that most peaple are using h2o2 for this purpose.

also i think that unless u intend to grow other things then mushrooms
ure not realy gonna need that light... they only need it to know wich way is up and what time it is... if ure tub doesent let trough any natural light at all u might want to consider using LEDs instead..
a single regular bright led is plenty of light for mushrooms.

in my opinion, its too much overhead.. all that electricity for water pump n all that... and if one thing fails, pump for example, u gonna hafta get a new one.. plus u gonna hafta replace that water filter constantly like an aquarium. if your worried bout RH, hook up a ultrasonic to the chamber. and as long as the air pump itself has a filter on it, u should be fine without that hepa box, jus dont put it on the floor where all the dust and co2 is.. cakes or casings usually fruit at room temp anyway so no need for water heater for the fruiting chamber, last thing is, the air pump generates a lil bit of heat when its running constantly so if ur worried about the chamber being too cold, theres your heat! keep it simple.

i'm not an expert, but i've learned a great deal on this site from experts :wink:

I'd ditch everything on the outside but the air pump, keep the heater inside with the geolite and the bubble wand. The light might be overkill but its not gonna hurt anything unless it gets real hot. GL
