Tyvek - Air exchange for fruiting chameber?
    #4486845 - 08/02/05 09:51 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Lets say I birth the cakes from PF Tek into a 3 Liter bottle using perilite for humidity. I know air exchange is important so I was thinking of cutting a hole in the top almost as large as the top, and use Tyvek for a filter for contams and air exchange.

1) Would this provide enough air exchange and filter contams(so I wouldnt have to fan 2 times a day)?

2) Would this allow humidity to remain high?

Thanks.

(edit)

Oh yeah, here is ONE of my TWO jars on day 8. This is my first attempt.

well the problem with putting it at the top would be that the co2 wouldn't be able to get out. all the co2 sinks to the bottom, therefore i think you would still have to fan.
maybe you could put some holes just above the perlite level and stuff them with polyfil, that would also allow you to get air exchange while allowing the co2 to be released out.
as far as humidity it would decrease somewhat requiring you to do some misting to keep the rh up. if that is too much then maybe you should rethink your hobbies. it does take some attention to get the goods.

good luck to ya
peace

Other hobbies??  Nah...  :P

Unfortunately I can't do it at my parents place because they don't approve.  I tried to convince them, but that didnt go well. :smile:  My boyfriend wont let me do it at out place, so that is out of the question. Right now, my cousin is letting me do everything at his place, but the problem is I cant attend them 24/7.  I know nothing is easy, but figured I'd ask questions anyhoo.

A hole and a fan you say? Hmm... What about if I took a bigger/wider container and used Tyvek on both ends, with a fan blowing from one side?  I suppose that would help air exchange, but decrease humidity.

Guess I should just go all out and buy an ultrasonic humidifier.  If only money grew on trees, and nothing in life was a hassle.  sigh

either Tyvek, or pollyfil will work, but the vents should be near the bottom of the jug, just above the perlite. to allows co2 to escape.
