my martha
    #3981530 - 03/28/05 09:06 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

I just wanted to show everyone my new Martha setup and get any input for it. The martha has a cool mist coming in on the left side (which you can see) and an ultrasonic coming in on the right (which you can't see). There is a small tray of wet perlite in the bottom for needed humidity.

The top left casing was used with 2 BRF/verm 1/2 pint cakes crumbled and cased with coco coir and a little lime.
The bottom left casing is 2 pint jars of WBS and then cased with Anno's mix of Verm, Coco, Peat, with a little crushed oyster and lime (at least I think that's what he said he used once, sorry if I was off Anno.)
The right casing was 3 BRF/verm 1/2 pint cakes crumbled and cased with coco, verm, and a little lime.

The 2 casings on the left have been in there for about 2 days now but the other one has been in there for over a week now, I think 9 days... the mycelium stopped growing a while ago and it looks dry I think. It looked about ready to pin with tons of the spiky bits of mycelium but then it delayed and hasn't continued. My temps are always good around 74, and my humidity can fluctuate some because I'm still getting used to using both humidifiers. It usually stays between 85% and 99% tho. I'll make sure it doesn't reach 99 if they ever get pinning. I think I'm gonna hold off on the use of my cool mist and just use the ultrasonic every 2 hours. I'll use the cool mist a couple times a day but just for air exchange... it constantly dries out my casings! (hence the perlite in the bottom)

I know casings don't like 99%, but as long as I'm not getting fluffy mycelium, isn't it ok... because mycelium grawth is actually really slow

Probably means they are goin into generative mode, if 99% is workin for you then by all means keep it that way.

That casing on the right looks a bit dry.

gen?er?a?tive  Audio pronunciation of "generative" ( P )  Pronunciation Key  (jnr--tv, --r-)
adj.

  1. Having the ability to originate, produce, or procreate.
  2. Of or relating to the production of offspring.


setup is cool, if i were you i'd ditch that shitty shelving and make something more efficient.  Use all the space available.  If thats the 30inch you can easily fit 4 large casings per shelve and 5 shelves in there.

Freestanding hvy duty plastic shelves @ Lowes, HomeDepot, Target & KMart.

PVC pipe alone is weak, chains - swing.

chains really don't work too bad, i'm using them in my martha... i'll try to get some pics up soon but idk

i just bought 4 6' chains, had lowes cut a 6"x16"shelf in half and hung those and they don't really sway much at all unless you bump them

all in all i spent like 65 bucks for the martha shelving and humidifiers, havn't bought what i need to hook them up to the martha yet though
