Terrarium?
    #3670672 - 01/24/05 03:07 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Hello. Wednesday, I am going to go get everything I need to grow the mushrooms. I think I am going to order 4 syringes from thelittleguy.com. I am not sure which ones to order though. And also, I want to make a nice terrarium. I cant spend over 40$ on it though. Kinda short-changed right now. But I want it to be decent and hold 4 syringes worth. Also, it is fairly cold here right now, will that affect my mushroom growing?

Yes.
The colder than normal conditions will either prevent them from fruiting, or growth will be slow and mushrooms will be small (but usually "dense"). Depends on how "cold" it is, and if you can provide a heat source...


There are many cheap fruiting chambers you can build. Search for poor mans pod or perlite tub...

Well, I can make sure it stays warm in that room. Got a whole room for it. Can anyone help me with the other part of my post? Thanks by the way :smile:

Sorry about that. I looked around on the forum and such a little bit. If I used a 10 gallon aquarium, how could i sterilize it? and how many cakes would it hold? I am buying 4 syringes..How would the setup work?

Rubbermade and perlite is all you need if your poor and want shrooms.

If your new EQ, B+, Hawaiian, Z-Strain, PESA are all good shrooms and easy to grow. More tolerant then some of the others.  :thumbup:

If you want to spend some more money, buy an extension cord w/ a timer on it, and then buy a fluorescent or similar light, anywhere around 15 watts is plenty. Also get an aqurium air-pump (10 gal+) with a couple of hoses and position them over your casing/cakes. Now you're fully automated.

I'd put the light on a 12/12 schedule, and the air pump to come on every couple of hours for 5 minutes or so.

Use your imagination and keep browsing/researching!

Yeah, fresh o2 is what your shrooms need. They produce CO2, which they don't like to rebreathe. It would be like rebreathing your farts :P

Also, about the sterilzation of the aquarium/rubbermaid tub/etc., I use Lysol anti-bacterial wet-wipes. Find 'em at a grocery store or walmart. I sanitize my hands and needle w/ 99.99% germ killing hand sanitizer, which has worked great.
In my shroom cultivating career (which consists of 8 colonized PF half pint jars) I've had a 100% success rate in every aspect of shroom growing.
Once your jars are 100% colonized, they are pretty resistant to contaminates, but you should be pretty clean anyways, though you don't have to be as clean as you were when inoculating.

Go to sears and look for a HOLMES ultrasonic humidifier. The one i use is the cheapest they carry, and works "perfect." It is the cheapest, and it has the smallest opening, so its easy to work with. You will also need a nice lid, make it out of plexi glass, or if you gotta, use some clothes hangers and plastic. i dont know, saran wrap or something.Build the "good" lid so that it has atleast a 30 degree angle. AIR TIGHT, this will help. if you need more specific directions for building the lid we can get to that later.once the lid is finished, your ready for the humidifier.
first things first you will need a pop bottle, easy right? cut the top part off, so that it will fit into opening pretty snug.you will need to add a ring of tape under it to lock it in and keep leaks held tight within.so now you have a spout more or less." duct tape makes things air tight, just use tape" Cut a peice of 3/4 pvc,to lay inside the aquarium. you want to cut this to the width, not the length. cap one end and put holes in it about every half inch. not all the way through, just one side. like a zamboni. "excuse me i have to get a glass of tea" lol, ok. now, your gonna want to leave about one inch for the pvc thats gonna run down the corner and connect to the..zamboni mister"". so cut a whole in the lid and hook it all up to the spout on the humidifier. use your head! nice and professional we are. buy a cat pan litter from walmart, this will fit perfectly inside. Fine tune the humidifier and time intervals. or just set it to the lowest setting and trun it off and on manually. the tank will hold humidity really well. mcgyver couldnt come up with somethin greater..! trust this set up, it works.no need for perlite on the tank floor. all for under, 40 bucks! aint that somethin. need any more info, pm me.
"Peace is nice,now go fuck yourself" unkown
have fun
