coffee filters
    #389368 - 09/09/01 02:52 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

ok, there's a dirty hippie right, with a low-tek, pf-style terrarium that is fanned manually, and this mofu was asking me if you could cut holes in the plastic lid and seal them up with coffee filters, as opposed to filter disks, which the flower child doesn't have.

can coffee filters block spores? would this even increase the air circulation noticably?

also, has anyone tried this EZ culture tek--> http://www.shroomery.org/findorgrowthem.php?View=docs&doc=99

i was thinking that, if these do block spores, they would make a wonderful substitute for the wax paper lid.....

thanks for your time and response.

coffee filters will not block spores. why do you need to in the terrarium that is being manually fanned? with each fanning, the whole terrarium is being replenished with nasties. fortunatly colonized mycelium can resist them, and may actually digest them.

better to cut the holes near the bottom of the terrarium, since the purpose is to letCO2 out, not to let air in.

a coffee filter will indeed increase air flow.

i dont think the coffee filters would work, there purpose is to strain the ground coffe beens from the water and some of them still get through, so i dont think it would stop a mycroscopic spore.

drugs are good, and when you do them people think that your cool
