which is quieter martha or pmp?/covert grower
    #3991438 - 03/30/05 06:43 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

hey all,
im planning on growing again but now i live with my gf who wouldnt approve.( i know someone is going to warn me against the legalities involved but ive read about that often enough so u could save the energy in that.) i wanted to set something up where i could just let them grow without checking on them 3 times a day for fanning or misting. the pmp is an easier set up for me but im concerned about the noise it makes with the air pump. she never comes in my office room but just in case she does i wouldnt know what to say the noise is and putting fish or some other pet in the room would raise an eyebrow too(she'ld be like"why not put them down stairs where people would actually see them?)
is the martha quieter? if i do go with the pmp could i set the air pump on a timer to be off for a few hours a day so as not to make noise during the most possible time of day that she might happen to come in? would that be bad on the shrooms? im wondering if i put the pmp in my closet if that would muffle the noise more and maybe even make it unoticeable.
well any input from u guys would be appreciated. thx.

I'd say it depends on what kind of air pump you're using for the PMP or which humidifiers you have f a martha. I have 2 humidifiers for my martha and it's sure not very quiet. Plus marthas are a little harder to hide... I mean you have a big humidity closet with octopus arms connecting to small machines. Of corse I have had people dumb enough to beleive that I use it to keep my "fruits" and vegetables fresh. :lol:

Is it for personal use?

The 3-liter bottle method would give you low yields, But, it'd be good enough for you...kinda lol..

Personally, tripping w/ friend :thumbup:

I use a PmP...Yea, it's rather loud, water bubbles up through the geo-lite rocks and makes some noise, think of a reason that something would be making that noise and you'll be set :thumbup:
Or you could grow elsewhere? A good friend perhaps?

the fish tank pump isn't loud at all. And if it is run a search of the posts for ideas about making them quieter.

Yeah a tank pump in a closet is pretty quiet and discreet. That way you can have a dozen or so cakes to keep ya flying whenever you want. Wrap it in a towel, that helped me when I had a fish tank in my bedroom. Your gonna have more trouble drying the little guys out discreetly I think.

I actually would suggest getting a new gf with an open mind but thats for a different forum...

gnostic: im growing for my self and a friend but i want to go for bulk this time so i dont have to do it again for a while. thinking seriously about go with the horse poo tek and a few cakes too.

lethalx5: i think im probably gonna go with a pmp. as far as fish tank pumps go i have seen them but arnt they water pumps? dont i want an air pump? i dont know much about keeping fish so im wondering if they use air pumps?

dirtmcgirt: yea im probably gonna put the pmp in the closet. im not worried so much about drying cause i was dealing with that when we first moved in and i was finishing my second grow. i managed to put them in a desicant chamber until i new she would be gone for several hours(like work) then ild throw them in my dehydrator for like 12hours at about 112(no loss of potency noticed at that temp). as far as the gf goes shes pretty awesome, taking mushrooms wouldnt be much fun knowing shes not in my life. this issue is just one of the few negatives in our relationship so in my judgement its not worth breaking up so i can grow mushrooms. i do believe i could do it and get away with it. i did it b4 for almost 3 months when we first moved in. im hoping after this next time i will grow enough not to need to do it again for a while, thats why i wanna go for the bulk this time.

i can see that with a pmp u dont need to fan but is it true u dont need to mist also? thats hard to believe.
