Tyvek Question
    #4229646 - 05/28/05 12:30 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

My friend has a 10 gallon bucket he plans to turn into a small poor man's pod, problem is this bucket was originally a deep water culture bucket, so the only lid he has, has a 5" hole in it for a netpot. He was planning to cover this with tyvek and was wondering if it would let too much moisture out. Any ideas?

Cover it with some plexiglass instead.

Sorry my friend doesn't have an abundance of plexiglass/any way to cut plexiglass/plexiglass doesn't exchange gas. Maybe some day he will try that.

So cover it with tyvek and then put a plastic bag over it to keep moisture in.
peace

ah my bad man. you are doing a pmp with it, not for colonizing. you need something clear over the hole for light to penetrate, otherwise you know what will happen, nothing but myc growth. take mightybops advice and put some plexi on there. you can score it with a razor blade and then snap it, similar to cutting glass, then file the edges a little or borrow a jig saw from someone. then just drill some holes in the bucket and stuff with polyfil for gas exchange. should work.
peace

Ehh, Tyvek let's light through, just not a ton. My friend's using some thicker style clear plastic taped to the lid for now. It's really only a matter of keeping humidity up, he's figured it out though. Thanks!
