Attic Adventure..suggestions please
    #3690347 - 01/27/05 09:47 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Alright everyone im planning on doing an attic adventure with some mushrooms. So far i have:
20gal tank
2 300watt fish tank heaters
and a 10 gal water cooler for incubating

Once i order the strain i plan to start the cakes, i have a question about perlite in my terrarium,if i place a wire mesh above it,chicken wire fence i assume will be good enough, then put a layer of verm for moisture...and then place my substrate on top of the verm,and then case the substrate...will this all work out if i keep the RH at 95-98% all the time....i will be casing with just verm...will the layers of substrate and casing keep the perlite from attaining its RH target?

your first concern should be with maintaining an even temperature, you need to
monitor whats going on up there for a couple weeks or you'll be starting over quick

or just get a thermometer that records highest and lowest temp. and leave it up there and check it every couple o days.

you can find that on 60deg days the attic can be 90 or it could be 40, the temps
can fluctuate 20-30 degrees in a matter of minutes, it depends on how its all
ventalated and insulated. also make sure that you have fiberglass insulation,
if its cellulose, you'll leave a trail to your grow.

Yeah man, you stablize it for day time temps and night time will be bad and vice verse. Attics are tough...
