a little more about air exchange
    #3935101 - 03/18/05 12:28 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

What would you guys recommend to do? I have a ten gallon rubbermaid container stacked on top of another and I have a fish tank heater in between the two. For humidity I have wet perlite and nothing else. I can get 70-86 degree heat and 86 percent humidity. What should I use for air exchange. I don't want to do the manual method of fanning, I would imagine all that light would confuse the mycelia.
My question now is what exactly do I go to the store and buy for air exchange?
I've been only piecing together tidbits of info from posts and not getting a full story from the begining.

When people use the ultrasonic and cool mists humdifiers, do they put the whole thing into the terrarium or hooks tubes up to them?
Do i need any of those if I use perlite?

With the air bubbler, Do I put it in a glass of water on top of the perlite? I need an air (hepa) filter hooked up to it right? How does the co2 exit the terrarium with an air bubbler?
Thank you for your help

use a fish aquarium pump + bubble stone + glass of water

u dont need a hepa.. your terranium is probably not air tight, but if it is just make a hole for air to escape and fill it with polyfill or tyvek

theres plenty of posts here about air pumps

If you want, just to be safe, you can put a little hydrogen peroxide in the glass of water your bubble stone is in.Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony. :heart:Hippie Chick :mushroom2:

A friend of mine has had some amazing fruits from a tub filled with perlite and an aquarium pump for air exchange.

I've gone back to perlite for the time being, with a cool mist. Still waiting for pins i will let u know how it works out.
