DT and PmP's
    #4371033 - 07/05/05 03:14 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I like PmP's and hate DT's b/c they're tallers than they shoulb be :p

So I;ve decided to make some holes down towards the bottom where you would on a DT, in hopes of getting the same effect...

This way you'd get better co2 drainage I think...

Not that it's esscential...due to the fact that the bubblers will be psuhing it in all kinds of directions.....but it should help some.

Considering that the only other holes are near the top...

Just lookn for some imput.

Not in line with the way you are going, but I keep telling everyone.

If you have the means & room.

Find a DEAD upright FREEZER
(most often FREE from appliance repair places)

And soon, I will...

But until then PmP's are fun and great for....singular usage :wink:

The reason the pod was made with the holes in the top.

(sorry about being boaring here)

The fundamental principal behind using air entrainment is to sufficiently mix the two (fresh air and stale air) together and then re-distribute them back into the environment in a more balanced way that is then more beneficial to the mushroom crop. Without this sufficient mixing of the gasses present within the grow space, the crops will remain stunted and will likely never reach their optimum potential.

With the poor mans pod, the settling co2 air is met and diffused by a curtain of fresh air rising from beneath the Geo-lite surface. This rising flow of air is created from the air diffuser rod situated below the Geo-lite surface, which is powered by the air pump. The rising air pattern not only prohibits the heavier co2 air from settling down onto the bottom surface as usual but it also simultaneously diffuses the co2 with fresh air as it is distributed back into the environment or grow space where it can be put to good use.

In this way, the poor mans pod creates the same desired phenomenon as offered by more conventional means of air entrainment found in much larger-scale commercial applications where a mixing box is commonly used to accomplish this important task.
