I have 12 PF cakes almost fully colonized. This is my first try at this. I am planning on doing two casing and fruiting the rest of the cakes. With the cakes i am using a perlite fruiting chamber with a bubbler. My question is what type of fruiting chamber should i use with the casings. Any help would be great, thanks.

Fruiting chamber should be clear, or have a clear lid, so they can get light. Humidity isn't a big deal with casings, you can get away with simply putting them inside a larger Rubbermaid, and misting the casing surface. Evaporation off the casing surface should give you enough humidity, but in the case it doesn't you can always mist the walls as well. No need for perlite here.

Fan a few times a day, and install that air bubbler if you're feeling up to it. Not necessary but it will be a helpful addition to your air exchange.

Good luck

another helpful tip if you wish is to drill two holes on each end of the rubbermaid (about an 1/8th big) and stuff them with polyfill or cover with tyvek. make sure this holes are even with the casing layer in height and they will also aid in air exchange.

Tyvek wont really help so much...doesnt do very good for fresh air exchange (try to breathe or suck through it)...gas exchange yes, its great...but polyfill is much better suited for this task (fresh air)

where about on the tubs do u put the air holes filled with polyfil. I was thinking having one at the top and one at the bottom but i've always seen it where there are just two holes at the same level bout 3/4 of the way up. best of luck to ya on ur grow. :-)

you want to put the bottom holes just above your casing line, and the top holes just a inch or 2 down from the top.. if your just putting the 8 holes (4 on the 2 sides) i would go with atleast 1" - 1 1/4" holes.

i put my casings into a seperate container then put them in my fruiting chamber so i put my holes a lil lower on my container, i think that the CO2 rolls out of the containers i use and builds up on the bottom of my FC, thats why i did that..

heres my last flush using single tub.
