i'm a newbie and i've looked through the archives and i can't seem to find an answer so here goes. i'm wondering how much airflow as in how much time i would need to have my aquarium bubbler on in side my 1'X1' aquarium to keep my cakes alive. i'm using perlite for humidity and i have about 20 cakes. just wondering, i don't want to leave it on all the time. the noise is making my roomate nervous.

any help appreciated and awarded with good karma.

Well you forgot to mention the size of your airpump. If it's small then proably best to leave it on 24/7. Depends really on alot of factors. Try to be alittle more descriptive: strain, temp, amount of light(length period), ect.

I am a relative newbie as well but I thought I'd give you some stuff to chew on. I am into "low tek" which means with as little electricity, chemicals, and just overall simplicity in design. I think if I were to raise fruit I might do it by using wet perlite in the bottom of a large tupper ware/rubbermaid container which held several containers of casing with said containers laying on the wet perlite. Then I might just exchange air and check on the little cuties throughout the day as would any good farmer. OR if I were worried about contaminants I might just cut a hole in the tupperware "terrarium" and afix a coffee filter on the sides to get some air exchange. No electricity used (cept for the pasturizing of all the stuff(which could be done on a fire)), no noise, nothing fancy. But I don't know, never tried it.

you have 20 cakes in a 12 inch by 12 inch container?! are they all touching each other? its been a while since HQ did cakes- but that container seems awfully small for that many cakes. (you dont want it too small- since your cakes will give off co2 like a mofo soon, and youll have to do a lot of air exchange to keep them from stunting. and also- your pins will be kinda restricted; touching each other as they form.) if its as small as im imagining- leaving it on as much as you can would be a good idea- not so much for humidity (perlite can take care of that) but for getting rid of co2.

jared posted a computer drawing within the past week or so of a way to stop the airpumps from vibrating. (use the search function- it was in m. cult.)... may be a good idea for you if youre concerned about the noise.

So this means that you can simply get a bubbler to use for air exchange rather then fanning it? if so then that would make it whole lot easier.
