terrarium and water question
    #3933108 - 03/18/05 12:05 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

First question is i read somewhere that if u use water from a pond of lake in the fruting stage that it will help the shrooms better the regular water, want to know if this is true. Second i am planning to make a terrarium out of a 10 gallon tank, if i get one air pump will it be enough to raise the hummidity to a good level and will it clean out the CO2 so i do not need to air it out.

Mine is 62liters....I use two air stones and 2 air stones and an air pump that has duel outlets ,i think that it's a 20-40gallon pump...It's big compared to 10g pumps...

It will clean out the CO2. Humidity... is a different question. Many experienced growers state it only raises humidity 10-20 % over ambient. However, I've had luck increasing that humidity with a bubbler tower

I used those green Scotch Brite pads to force the air to hang out in the water more, and gather more moisture. The one pictured here was my first take and it works REAL well to increase humidity & exchange the air, but the next bubbler tower is going to be more basic, and be external. All it really needs to make it work is a tall container, the green scrubbie pads and water.
