How much geolite in a PMP?
    #3780688 - 02/14/05 11:03 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

How much geolite does it take to fill the bottom of a PMP? Say it is 18x14 in the bottom atleast. Or let me know how much to fill the one you have.

66qt container = 12qts of geolite = 4 inches of geolite in bottom

Yeah, I read the 3 in depth, I was just wondering how much I should buy. I think I bought enough though, need to select my fruiting chamber soon though.

in theory this should work

take how many inches of geolite you want in your container (3 or 4 inches) divide that by the total height of the container. Multiply that by the total volume of the container, and it should give you an approximate amount of geolite you need.

so if my container is 66qts and 24inches tall and I wanted 4 inches of geolite in the bottom
4inches/24inches=.1667 x 66qts= 11qts of geolite

Now if your container has the same volume but less height, meaning more of that volume is dispersed into length or width.
4inches/15inches=.266 x 66qts= 17.6 quarts of geolite

Yeah, I knew there would be a formula that would work, just didn't take the time to think of it. Thanks :smile:
