Terrarium Question
    #405542 - 09/26/01 09:54 PM (17 years, 3 months ago)

Im using a rubber maid bin for my terrarium. Im using perilite for humidification. Do i need to drill a hole in the bottom to let the co2 out? Or is fanning 3-4 times a day enough?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Drilling a hole would let the CO2 out along with H20 (humidity). I have a rubermaid type box, with perlite, that I fan and spray 4 - 5 times a day, with decent fruits.

Some cultivators use very elaborate set-ups with humidifiers, cool-mist devices and such. We have never found this necessary. The fruiting containers that we use consist of simple clear plastic bins that are covered with polyethylene sheeting. These bins are stackable and thus very space efficient. For air exchange some hole are melted in the sides of the bins. These holes can be covered with mesh to keep out flies.

Basically, five cased trays are put in one bin and the evaporation from the casing surface is enough to maintain the proper moisture inside the bin. The holes provide some air exchange. We always cold-shock the harder-to-fruit strains (we put them in the fridge for one night before putting them in the bins). For easy fruiting strains (i.e. Ecuador cubensis) this is not necessary.

The casings are misted each day and the casing is never allowed to dry out. Directly after a flush is picked watering is increased because the maturing mushrooms pull a lot of moisture from the casing soil. It's very difficult to give explicit directions on a watering regime. You will have to develop a "feeling" for it.
