First grow.. Poor Mans Pod.. Questions about cpu fans, rubbermaid size.. and more!
    #3937768 - 03/18/05 11:12 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey!! I just have some quick questions about the Poor Mans Pod and a few other basic questions. First of all I plan on using a similar setup to this...
http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Number=1303334
I plan on going for about 8 jars 4 of P.C B+ , and 4 P.C. Thai Koh Samui Super Strain.. - I ordered these at http://www.thehawkseye.com/ How is this place.. I hope they are reliable.. I never got an e-mail after paying with credit.. w/e there it isn't required.

Now, first of all with this system should I have a fan inside? CPU fan? Any one have any pics or a TEK of this SHOWING the fan inside the terrarium?

Second.. How big of a Rubbermaid should i buy for 8 cakes? maybe more? but i really do want to keep this small, so if going more will make me increase in size a lot i don't want it..

Third.. Should i drill a hole in the Rubbermaid so there will be more air exchange? or is this what the fan is for? This is what i don't understand about the CPU fan.. is it like what it would be like on an actual computer case exhausting air?

Fourth.. Is there a major advantage to georock over lava rock besides weight.. This is my first grow and i want this as fool proof as possible.. Geo rock is going to be a 45 min drive while lava is a trip to the local super walmart. but if geo is better, ill make the trip.

Fifth.. What size pump should i get for an 8 cake Rubbermaid setup..

Hmm, I'm sure ill think of more but i guess that's it for now...
Thanks ALOT!

CPU fan is for drying not for PMP...use aquarium pump + airstone under geolite/lava for air exchange.

You should be able to judge the size of the rubbermaid, one i use is like 13"x60".

No extra holes need the aquarium pump takes care of air exchange.

Lava rock is alright but Geolite really works much better it may be worth the drive.

Any size aquarium pump will work pretty much, some people like to get ones with two outputs so they can use 2 airstones, I've used 1 and that worked fine.

With this system how much maintenance will really be needed? I'm guessing maybe airing it out once or twice a day?
Also, I'm probably going to go buy a Digital humidity Gage.. Can this be set right on the Georock? the humidity should be high 95% or so.. how much can this vary? am i correct with this.. also, what should be the temp in the Rubbermaid, 85 degrees or so? Winter sucks so id prolly have to heat it?
hmm, what else.. Any other maintenance related things i should know.. Cleaning? I don't know.. I'm just trying to get everything perfect...
Thanks,
Helge

It is pretty self sufficient...don't even need to fan it out.

If you get a hygrometer you want to keep in there get analog or a good digital, cheap hygros will not stand up to the humidity.

Does not need to be heated either 85 is incubation temperature, room temp is fine for fruiting 68-75F.
