Steam vapors?
    #4201420 - 05/20/05 10:46 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Howdy all. Years ago I brainstormed this watering technique for the PF Tek method when I first started. It always seemed a waste of time to spray down a spray shield as per the PF directions to create humidity within the chamber. This is to supposedly to break down the water droplets from the spray to a finer "vapor" I was in the shower one day thinking about the amazonian terrain from which my mushrooms spores were native to. Then it struck me like a THUNDERBOLT. Jungle. Hot. Humid. STEAM!!!! BOILING WATER!!!! EUREKA!!!! So I threw away the spray shield, drilled a hole in the bottom corner of the plastic tub and plugged it with bubblegum. Then I lined the bottom an inch thick or so w/ perlite and poured BOILING WATER(careful HOT) into the chamber until the perlite was almost floating. Then, I quickly placed all my cakes back in the chamber on top of plastic lids(metal lids conduct heat) Then, I quickly put the airtight lid back onto the chamber to prevent all the steam from escaping. Instant Amazonian Jungle. :biggrin: The whole chamber will fog up w/steam for some time, like twenty minutes providing your boys with a much  appreciated "MUSHROOM SAUNA"(tm)  :grin: :thumbup:Ha Ha!!! Hell Yeah!!! Anyway , My boys really seemed to dig it. I would drain the water out after awhile, by pulling the bubblegum plug. Then I would repeat after an hour or so. The perlite retains most of the humidity during the "dry" periods. I never did a comparison to see which method worked best, but the point of humidity is to get the water particles small enough to where the mycelium could absorb it. Well what's smaller then steam/water vapor? Anybody else thought of this? (I'm sure there's gotta be somebody) TRY THIS METHOD. IT WORKS  Happy Happy Shroom Shroom Happy Happy Shroom Shroom:shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer: :shroomer:

Hot, isnt good for the shrooms. Try an ultrasonic fogger instead.

It's hot down in the amazon. Have you ever been shroomin' in a field and watched the steam rise from the morning sun across the pasture? I agree though, ScatMan. Too hot is bad. I think a steam bath a few times a day would'nt hurt Da Kine though. I would like to see what temperature the chamber rose to(with steam). It has plenty of time to cool down the rest of the day and night. I was thinking of an automated system pumping steam into the chamber. I was low tech back then and I still am. But the ultrasonic fogger idea. Yeah, it's definitely on my Christmas wish list. :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow:

Have you ever been looking for shrooms in a field with the stem rising and seen flushes like this coming up in nature?



Nature doesnt have it perfect for our babies.

Umm Er uh, no, I have'nt seen it THAT good in nature, but umm, for the low tech cavemen like myself, I think steam is a good way to get results. :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow:

Nope..I tried using a Vick's vaporizer for steam, going into my PMP. Created nasty lookin mutants and lots of aborts.

Really? that's weird. It worked for me.(steam) I never tried a vaporizer. You sure it was the vaporizer that F*@#ed up your crop? There's SOOO many variables at work in cultivation that can cause aborts/mutants. :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow: :mushroomgrow: :sleepingcow:

U could just get a regular old steam humidifier they're like 10 bucks...but having constant steam will definitely increase ur temps...think about it that steam comes out at 212 F at least...try to find a secondhand ultrasonic

I believe steam in intervels (once every couple of hours) would'nt F#@K up Da Kine.
