pmp question
    #3821328 - 02/23/05 10:42 AM (12 years, 1 day ago)

i had a pmp set up with about 3 inches of damp/wet perlite. i used 2 bubble wands (immersed in the perlite) for air exchange but i always wondered :strokebeard: if enough air was actually getting through the perlite or maybe it would be better to put the bubble wands attached to the sides (just above the perlite layer) of the container. anyone ever try this? or should i just leave a good thing alone?

leave a good thing alone.

by putting the air through the perlite/water it makes the air coming in humid which helps the fruiting.

I did... but you don't have to. In fact, most people don't

"I like cigarettes, Miss Taggart. I like to think of fire held in a man's hand. Fire, a dangerous force, tamed at his fingertips. I often wonder about the hours when a man sits alone, watching the smoke of a cigarette, thinking. I wonder what great things have come alive from such hours. When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind---and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."

Yeah I did to, but I'm anal about sterility. I put it in a pan in the oven for about 45 min. at 350 degrees then let it cool compleatly before use. If the bag hasn't been opened and is air tight no worries, but if it's been opened and used, then better safe than sorry.
