My next Step.
    #3817431 - 02/22/05 05:15 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

ok so i have a few colonized WBS quart jars that are ready to be cased and my coco coir and crushed shell came today. my question is about my fruiting terrarium. It its 18in long and 12inch wide and 16in high. What i was going to do was add a few in. of perlite to the bottom and then some water that comes to about 1/2in of the top of the perlite. i was then going to put my casing trays along the bottom. i have some x-mass lights riged up on the lid of terrarium and i plan to drill some holes in the top and cover it with tyvek. i will fan it at least twice a day and mist the sides.

does everything above seem right? Am i doing anything wrong or missing something?

i would use a air pump and make a PMP but i don't like the noise it makes. Also when i make my casing mix is it ok to keep some in a quart jar to use for patching, or will it go bad in there?

You really should use a PMP. The noise is not much at all. It is self-maintained and is proven over and over to work.

Perlite, just plain sucks. It is extreemly messy and a pain in the ass to work with. I hate that stuff.


You can keep it in the QT jar. I would steralize it. Even though the casing layer does not provide nutrients, the moisture can create a nice bedding for bacteria.
