Using an old tent for a fruiting chamber?
    #4021763 - 04/06/05 03:34 PM (12 years, 26 days ago)

    I was just thinking today...I used to be in scouts and have one of those old triangular-shape generic nylon tents laying around.  I could put it through the wash, dry it.  It has netting on either end--so there should be plenty of gas exchange.  And from what I remember, the things hold humidity pretty well (or was that just the condensation on the outside in the mornings?).  Anyway, if one were to string the wire of an electric blanket through there, perhaps toss blanket over the top to make it a little more heat efficient.  You could throw some perlite in their in smaller containers or use a fogger.  You could run an extension cord with just about any lamp set up on a small pedestal so the light was directed downward.   
      Just looking for contained, cheap, fruiting chamber with some space. 
    Anyone care to comment on this?  Thanks.  :grin:

:mushroom2:  Sounds like it would work.  Just make sure all the punctures and seams are sealed.  Good luck!  :mushroom2:

THAT IS FUCKING BRILLIANT!

My god man, you have no idea the amount of camping equipment I have laying around. That would be brilliant. Its like a large martha.

I get so many good idea from this damn site, its just taking the time and effort to do them.

Great Idea. THANKS!

Put some wire shelves in it, it sound like a sweet plan.
I have yet to invest in a tent for camping, but if I had one,
I would surely give this idea a whirl! :thumbup:

It's funny how the simplest, best ideas are often overlooked.

I've thought of tents before..but I think all the mesh would cause alot of humidity to excape with the air exchange..of course a smal tarp or plastic sheeting covering most of the mesh could fix this easy enough...Tents are just kinda big (surface area wise) and short...which maybe good for some...but I think the tall skinny works better for most people (especially myself..very tight spaces)..yeah though..good idea..I'm actually surprised there are so many who like the idea who hadnt thought of it before..posts that make people go "Oh yeahhhhh" are always good..
