Totally new to the hobby.. Need HELP with Hydration method..
    #3936159 - 03/18/05 04:38 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hey.. I posted a few times last night dealing with sonic humidifiers and when i said that my grow would probably be 2-4 cakes i was told that i don't need one and that i should go with a fish tank bubbler.. since it is such a small setup Well, doesnt this present the problem of co2 buildup? I mean, i dont mind spending the extra $40 or so for the humidifier... If it is going to make it easier and less maintenance than i want it.. Or does the co2 act the same with a ultrasonic as it would the fish bubbler way.. The less i have to mess with it the better, so a hole in the bottom for the h20 and co2 to drain/escape out of would be ideal so i dont have to be airing it out all the time... Once a day would be ok, twice would be pushing it but any more then that and it might be a little tricky.. The thing is that this grow will not be at my house and i wont have access to it 24/7 because of the distance it is away.. So the easiest most maintaince free way to grow them would be my best option... Also, im guessing it would be more like 4-6 cakes??? im not sure.. It cant be huge, but the size of a medium size cooler would be tops... Hopefully less space, i plan on using a rubbermaid i think? Im not sure, it is really all out in the open right now.. i dont know, if anyone has a better option or suggestions let me know. The thing i do know is that I want it simple and maintenance free as possible.. Let me know, thanks alot!!

Don't bother with any expensive equipment if you are just doing 4-6 cakes.

Aquarium pump and geolite or perlite will work fine, they provide plenty of air exchange because the fresh air coming in pushes the CO2 out.

I have too much water vapor already, so, when I installed my bubbler wand, instead of putting it under the perlite to help humidity, I put it above, so all it does is move air and pump o2.
Maybe throw a computer fan in there, somewhere there is a tek for wiring.
Polyfilled holes at top and bottom, I only open it once, sometimes twice a day.
You will need a timer for lights too.

You wouldn't happen to know a link that shows a setup like this... Diagrams, step by step would be ideal.. Like i said, I have never grown shrooms before and am just now learning all the terms and everything.. My expertise lay in SCROG and coliseums.. If you haven't seen a coliseum housing 500 AK47xsweetcindy girls your missin out, it sure is something... well, now I'm expanding into growing the great fungi. Thanks for the help!

Awesome.. So perlite will work fine instead of the geolite. I can get it.. but it is a 45 minute drive. Wow, that rubber maid has like 15 cakes in it... are those half pint? Shit, if you can fit that many in a rubbermaid that size ill go all out... but I just dont want to fuck this up.

The fan is an idea, but it can work without the fan, if your terrarium is the standard upside-down sterlite type box on its lid, because CO2 is heavier and will go down and out that imperfect seal. I don't know how much air a terrarium pump puts out in a day, but it's definitely more than the CO2 the mycelium produces. (I think I've read that it will change the air in the terrarium every few hours).
