Bulk Casing: PMP or Martha / Ultrasonic?
    #4230249 - 05/28/05 04:29 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Ok so I have a PmP

22Gal Tub ($8)
3.5 inches of Geolite / LECA / Hydrotron ($25)
18in Bubble wand ($5)
Air Pump (rated for a 30Gal aquarium). ($8)

Not really inexpensive considering it is called a 'Poor Man Pod' but  :shrug:.  It is big enough for two 6.5quart bulk casing containers I have, but i,m now wondering if I've gone though too much trouble.
Is ultrasonic still recommended to achieve optimum conditions even for a casing, or will a PmP work just as well?  Perhaps the ultrasonic creates finer/more available H2O?
Does Ultrasonic impove a casing Vs. PmP
You may choose only one
Yes
No, unless you live in the desert!

For what you spent on your PMP, you could of had a 4 tier greenhouse ready to go.

Really depends on the situation if an ultrasonic is needed or not. I thought I would need one but didn't. I have to put my coolmist on a timer to get the right humidity.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

Yeah I am using the PMP right now with probably the same size rubbermaid as you have. If you are already thinking about the Martha setup, go with the 4-tier greenhouse like Hippie said instead. Magash uses the Cool Mist 24/7 and the Ultrasonic every 15 minutes per hour. Hippie only uses the Cool Mist. You just have to see what works when you set it up. What I would do is get another 22-gallon rubbermaid and then make a TiT along with your current one. It will be perfect for the quart jars of grain you will be using next :wink:

Save all the stuff you have though. You can always have another little PMP with cakes/casings going along side your greenhouse. The ultrasonic does produce a finer mist than the cool mist, but doesn't really generate airflow like the Cool Mist does.

Hey MightyBop, think I'm getting by with only the coolmist, on a timer now, is because my outdoor humidity is 85%.

Did you seal off the bottom of the greenhouse?

No, just zipped shut.

Well, I did tape the sides to the edge of the greenhouse but didn't seal it up completely. I didn't add any plastic to it.

That's cool Hippie, maybe that's all mine will require too :smile: Cool Mist on a Timer.

Liquidkick, I don't think it's necessary to seal off the bottom of the greenhouse, since the humidity doesn't need to be that high. Plus, it's a good way for the CO2 to exit.
