Few questions 'bout fruiting chamber.
    #4391180 - 07/11/05 01:44 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Hows everyone doin today? ... Well thats good to hear. First off I'd like to say whats up to everyone, and introduce myself. Names Nick. Been a big fan of mushrooms for a while and a huge fan of this site since I recently found it.

I have a few somewhat general questions about a fruiting chamber I will be assembling soon.

1) I work long days 10-12 hrs at a time. Which doesnt allow me much time to maintain my shrooms. To keep the humidity straight in my chamber, instead of light mistings, could I use just a humidifier. Or are both required?

2) Fanning - Whats the purpose? Is it completley nesscesarry? Seems like it is just allowing new air in and the c02 out? Would a humidifier eliminate this step?

3) I plan on fruiting a somewhat large amount of casing at once in the same chamber. Now could I use a large oven backing sheet(metal)? Or would it be best to use 2-4 large foil baking pans?

4) Light source - I will be using a rubbermaid (semi-clear) tub container as one of my fruiting chambers. Just upside down, so the lid is the base, creating a dome effect. Should I install a dome light to the top of my chamber on the inside? Or could it be on the oudside? Do the shrooms need direct light, or could it be indirect on the outside, since the container is clear-foggy.

I appreciate any responses, thanks in advance.

well welcom aboard Nick. Before you invest any money into this awesome hobby make sure you read up on everything.....EVERYTHING. Do a few practice runs with small amounts because it sounds like you want to do bulk.
1) to meet this problem double tub tek which austin has a very good pictorial.
2)U want O2 not C02 plus contamination is a huge problem in this hobby.
3) Pf tek is good for personal amounts and for enough for friends.....this is where you might to stick around and read the forums for a few weeks don't be in a rush to blow money.
4) outside is fine, indirect.
stick around because ur missing a few things in your plans. example you do not want to use the lid as the base why? Because it will be a bitch to open plus sounds to me like ur using the PF Tek so ur going to be using perlite.....Very messy. Good luck.

^No, I think he said he was going to use a humidifier...which eliminates the perlite.

But a few quick searchs would you you a lot of good bro.

Never thought about what kinda trouble it would be to open the lid. Heh. Guess i'll have to rethink what i'd like to use as a terrarium.

again, appreciate all the responses. Thanks.

Actually, I think using the lid as the bottom would be an excellent idea. The lid wouldnt need to seal on but most rubbermaids wouldnt be any more difficult to pull the bottom off the top, especialy the snap lock ones with locks that snap in on the side (slide to the side locking on the lid)..would be easy, and when you lift to fan, you would basically remove the whole chamber, including walls, making fanning very very quick, 2 seconds. And without perlite or geolite (since using a humidifier) it shouldnt be a problem not having the depth.
