Question from a new grower.
    #4307962 - 06/17/05 04:42 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

This will be my first time attempting to grow mushies. I have read many of the teks here an around the web, from PF cakes to large bulk teks. Being that it is my first attempt I am going to start with just cakes and go from there. My question though....

I read two different variations of the PF tek. One says to use a terrarium with plexiglass between the cakes and the top of the terrarium and spray with water, and one says to put perlite on the bottom mixxed with water. Does that mean that the latter does not require spraying at all? Just keep the perlite damp? and no need for a plexiglass sheild?

Either way which would be the reccomended way for a first timer? Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

When I started with cakes, I used perlite and misting. I started out with a drip shield and found it isn't necessary. I would recommend the perlite and mistings. Check into using a fish pump with bubble wand and you could have yourself a nice little automated chamber. Good Luck.

Your problem was your trying to use the bubler for humidity..its not for humidity, its for air exchange thats slightly humid. Just like a cool mist humidifier, they can actually lower the humidity...its not what its there for though.

I used a 10 gallon aquarium with no plexiglass and perlite on the bottom. As for the humidity problem i used glad wrap press and seal and it worked great. i had no problem at all with the humnidity.

That's what SHE said...

Absense of evidence is not evidence of absense...

"Religion is a defense against a religious experience"
              Carl G. Jung

 
"So really, ordinary reality is a kind of chemical habit, sanctioned by culture, which says it's okay to use certain drugs, eat certain foods, and have certain sexual behaviors. However, when you transcend all this pre-conditioning by returning to the original wisdom of the animal body, then you discover this immense dimension of opportunity. For some people, it is a frightening risk. To me, that's the psychedelic experience."
Terence McKenna
