the halagen lights would bake the moisture (and life) right out of cakes and casings. I would recommend a flourescent.

Is it really necesary to soak the perlite with h2o2. I think that is one thing that can be left. When h2o2 is added to the enviroment doesn't that result in blotches on the caps and brown streaks on the stems??? We dont want to be hurting are shrooms.

Have you estimated the price?

Oh by the way your setup looks pretty good.

The only improvement that I would suggest is to have a clear lid and not need all of the wireing and power adapter and tube for the built in light.

Just turn your closet light on...

Have the power cords from the bubbler and the submersible heating tube running out and that's it... Seems to be less hassle I guess.

youre giving me some ideas!!! i aint got no money though!!! one thing that i fing important while growing is that you need some space for more shrooms!!!! my ten gallon aquarium only fit four of my casing trays, and thats only 8 cakes!!! now that im growing again i am planning on making 24!!! anyone now a casing tray size that will fit 6 cakes???? and why dont you just put the light outside of that thing??? ohh ya, and hot glue never seemed to stick very well to plastic.

Great Design! You da man with illustrator...

I have a few comments:

1. Are you using the perlite for rehydration of the cakes? Or is it to raise humidity in the chamber? Perlite I have found tend to makes cakes soggy if they are placed directly on it...for this reason, I would instead use some sort of circular plastic grate (egg crate? or whatever it's called, that light clear plastic shit with waffle type holes...) and place cakes or cased trays on top of that. If the goal is rehydration, than maybe you could take a little more inspiration from Mcman and use a layer of geolite instead on top of the perlite, then the cake drinks as much as it wants without soggyness...another alternative would be to put the perlite in a stocking (yes, a stocking) and place that on the bottom...makes cleanup and replacement of yucky perlite an absolute breeze. (Mad credit to ripper for this idea...see post from a few years ago)

2. How to regulate temperature? The submersible heater within the perlite has nothing to act as a buffer...ie if you turn it up to high (and those things are a bitch to control) you could fry your cake...actually, i have a feeling that the floro light may provide heat in that small and environment as is...

Keep up the good work!

Hey Jared, what is the purpose of putting the fish tank heater into the perlite?

Well Jared this post got me thinking hard. I have always believed in DIY so I tried constructing one of your pods as cheaply as possible. Here's what I got:







The design is basically the same, but simplified. The cost was lower, because I left out the light and heater parts (and didn't need a DC adaptor). For vibration control I put a 2" piece of foam in the bottom and then another one on top of the air pump. This works great, and is much easier than constructing shocks for the pump. :) The air is also filtered through the foam this way, but I don't know if that provides any real benefit. You were right about the hot glue, it sticks like a bastard. I didn't use plexiglass because i found a piece of plastic laying around the house that did the job.

Costs:

1 5 Gal Bucket: $6
Foam: $4
Air Pump and Hose: $18
Timer: $15

How I did it:

I first took the bucket and drilled about 10 holes in the side for fresh air. I then made a hole for the cord of the air pump. I decided to just plug the timer into the wall instead of keeping it in the bucket (I figured this would allow me more configurability).

The foam was cut into circles using scissors and shoved in the bottom tightly. The pump's cord was fed through the hole and the air hose was attached. I drilled a small hole in the plastic cover and sealed the space between the hose and the hole with glue. I then glued the plastic down firmly. This design also eliminates the need for struts since the foam provides enough support already.

I haven't tried the pod yet but FOAF has some cakes germinating so I will post back with the results later.

Okay, I have a question about the first pod. ;) First off it looks really well thought out, but I just wanted to know how you are supposed to get to the timer to change it abit now and then? Does the section above or below it lift up?
