Casing?
    #3878869 - 03/06/05 07:51 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Does, or rather can, casing provide all of the humidity needed for growing. With water bottles and stuff that is, I'm just looking for a way to grow without buying a humidifier and rigging up a terrarium with pumps and shit.

I'm talking about whether or not you need to use stupid crap like ultrasonic humidifiers and fans. According to Apprentice Casing Tek, in the casing FAQ section,

"the use of cool mist or ultrasonic humidifiers, or perlite humidification, may be too much for your casings"

So I guess the answer to my question is no, you don't need all that stuff. But I would still like to know the specifics, IE if something p4kSoul's idea would work.

you can always tell if your humidity is right by looking at the sides of your Rubbermaid. the sides should be moist but shouldn't be pouring down water. if the sides aren't wet you should spray them to keep the humidity level.

You can just provide conditions with the casing and misting, but you'll be better off adding in some perlite, or better with a PMP or cool mist hose. The casings will dry out quickly and yeilds will suffer.

Bulk is a little different though...those casings hold they're moisture in pretty well and casing is enough. P4k (or whatever the name :-P) posted kind of a bulk casing, it would work...though the containers pretty short to do it like that. Just putting some casings in a rubbermaid would probably cause them to dry out though. You need a nice thick large casing (not casing layer, overall casing) to do well on its own.

yes casing can provide most of the humidity. If the sides of the container are 6-12 inches higher then the top of the casing you should be fine with no lid. All you need is a spray bottle. You can get a big rubbermaid container and fill with 6 inches of substrate and case and keep the lid off and water it 2-3 time a day and it will work great.


--------------------
Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Perlite would be the way to go. There's absolutly no need for all that fancy bullshit some people use. I guess it's all how you start the hobby. When people think they need all that crap they go out and get it and get results. However it's not needed to have good results.
I go about as simple as I can, and end up with these....
Each flush after the first ended up giving off bigger and bigger shrooms...plus they started to grow straight up after I took the mylar down of the walls...hehe. My little chamber was used for other things also :beatup:
Perlite, and a small spray bottle, and your good as gold :wink:

Casing mixes just help add water and aeration to the sub.

I think you might want to ask what his sub. is.

Roadkill's right, condensation MAY just mean that you have to very different temps. inside and outside of your terrium...
I can usually tell if mine's humid enough by just opening it quickly and seeing/feeling how well the water sticks to my hand. It isn't as perfect as a hygrometer(sp?), but it works well enough for a personal grow.

And all that statement meant was that you don't need Everything in the book that creates moisture...Casings don't need 100% moisture, that's what the casing is there for, moisture...Cakes may need that much, but having so much humidity may just make it to where you have lil pools of water everywhere and that's def. not a good thing.
