your opinion...?
    #3963685 - 03/24/05 06:54 AM (12 years, 8 days ago)

Hey everybody, I'm unfortunately going to be leaving my shrooms for 10 days without attention. At the moment I have one casing which hasn't started showing pins but myc is just beginning to pop through the casing layer. Now what I'm going to do is leave them in a Rubbermaid tub, wet perlite bottom, with the lid off for air exchange, near my window to get indirect daylight. RH for the area I live in is around 60-70% and temps about 20-25 degrees. What will I come home too? Shrooms, Contam, or dead dried out shit??? What you think?  :rolleyes: :shrug:

IMO, you're most likely to come home to dried-out contams. Consider a PMP (poor man's pod) setup instead.

this is my signature.

Leave on the top, Cut out some holes near the bottom, 1/2 inch wide, and stuff with poly fil, cut 2-3 holes in the top , stuff with poly-fil, there's your air exchange...the perlite should keep it damp enough for a casing IMO....and as for light :thumbup:, don't take the lid off, that's really....not a good idea...If you've got a small fan, then put you're terrium infront of it, it'll blow air through the holes (small amount but enough) and give you better air exchange...Gl

ah crap I left the lid off and now I've left them... thought because the humidity of the area was already highish and that there was no wind or direct sunlight in my room that they might be okay from drying out... Guess I'll try again next time. Done cakes, was too easy and got I nice yeld but now I want more :smile:
