Proper Humidity and gas exchange for growing in a pop bottle?
    #3728676 - 02/04/05 03:22 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Right now I am birthing my first pf cake in a popbottle. The cake is sitting on a piece of aluminum foil which is placed on 2-3" of soaked perlite in the bottom of the 2 liter pop bottle. Will this create enough humidity? I knew that there must be a way for gases to exchange so I covered the top mouthpiece with some papertowels and rubber bands. Is that alright too? There isn't droplets all over the the walls of the bottle, but fine mist. thnx

Yes this will work fine.

Be sure and mist the inside of the pop bottle(not the cake) with water from a fine mist spray bottle...to keep the humidity up.

I'd leave the cap on the bottle.

Open the whole thing up and fan the cake several times a day...and you will be golden.

I used to have these all over my house...just for kicks.
I liked to look at them grow this way. :smile:
They would be all over my coffee tables, end tables and computer desk.

I also made these.








I'd put these all over the place too.
lolzz

Good luck!~

A little would be ok.

I'd stop after pins are forming though.
