Two Grow Set-ups...
    #4084550 - 04/22/05 12:34 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

1. Here are a couple of set-ups I'm trying out. The first is a small martha-type set-up. Ultra-sonic on a timer--10 minutes every two hours, and a trey of perlite for consistency. Only problem I see so far with this one is that the "shelves" are a bit flimsy, needing to be reinforced.





Question with this one is will there naturally be enough air exchange or will I need to do any fanning?

2. Basic plastic enclosure with a hepa-filtered fish pump bringing air exchange. The large white tube is not attached to anything--was trying to use a ultra-sonic, but after one attempt it was clear that it is just overkill for such a small enclosure, so i went back to some perlite. there are filter patches attached (glue gun) in several places over drilled holes to provide contam free exchange.





Tell me what you all think!

Why would there be? Air exchange doesnt just happen all by itself...

Well, there is incoming air from the ultrasonic humidifier and no zipper (which is what keeps the front of the hanging enclosure closed) is even close to air-tight...

Ultrasonics put out ziltch for air...they barly push the fog out of them and into the chamber..thats about all they have though. Ultrasonics do not provide air exchange, cool mists and air pumps do.

Gotcha. Based on that advice, I just put a fish pump into play with the closet set-up.

Here is a good link for in-line air filters for CHEAP!!

How do cool mists provide air exchange if they are within the set-up?

You don't place them INSIDE the fruiting chamber. You set them outside & use hose or pipe to direct the mist & fresh air/flow into the fruiting chamber.


My foaf uses a dead freezer for fruiting. C/M is piped in.


Tell me it doesn't work:

so, would a cool mist be better than my ultrasonic set-up? right now, i have an ultra sonic attached through the large white hose, and a fish pump bring in fresh air. it would be very easy to switch out the ultra sonic for a cool mist...
