Need some help with my first grow
    #4118316 - 05/01/05 12:30 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

hey everyone, first off i want to thank everyone for providing so much info at the shroomery, it's been a big help.

Im workin on my first grow and inoculated 8 jars, lost 2 to contam(wet spot). the remaining 6 are going good and are about 90% colonized. I used the pf tek and have filter disks in the jars.

I have 2 smaller tubs(about 12x8x10)im going to use for fruiting. I wanted to try a few different methods of growing to see which works the best. one tub i was going to try 2 smaller casings and the other just cakes, 2 dunked prior to birth 2 not. I have an ultrasonic humidifier setup with 4-2 liter coke bottles to get rid of some of the moisture, but my question is would this be too much humidity for the casings? within 10 minutes or so the tubs are up to about 98% humidity, but there is no condensation on the sides. for air exchange i have an air pump hooked up to both tubs. I was thinking that the air exchange would help keep the tubs a little less humid. should the air exchange be constant or set on a timer? any help is much appreciated.

constant air exchange has worked best for me. i wouldnt put the casings up to 98% humidity, casings only need like 85% humidity

Hey. First off, where do you get filter dicks? Might need some of those. Your casings will be OK with 98% humidity until you see pins. Then you will need to lower it to around 85%. I would give them constant air exchange. Good Luck.

HippieChick i got them from kaylx.com a little expensive but they seem to work well. http://www.kalyx.com/store/prodpage5.cfm/CategoryID/13500.0/SubCatID/2885.0/file.htm

How would i go about lowering the humidity for the casings? The humidifier is already at its lowest setting, and the cakes require more humidity, should i forget the humidifier and go with the perilite for the casings?

Thanks, but those are filter discs, I was interested in the filter DICKS you said you used.lol. Next time you could probably use tyvek and save some money.
