strictly 1/2 pint jars, nothing larger is really suitable for the PF Tek

Alright and what about the aquaraim? I have 2 20gal and 1 10 gal, should I put 7 dunked cakes in the 10 gal. Then with the 20 gallons make a huge cake? I'm looking to do about 35 cakes.

Should I use plexiglass shield as well? Will they all get enough humidity when I water?

you need to mist, not water and you need some sort of cover not a shield

How can I go about that? I dont understand what your saying sorry. I'm just gunna do what the PF TEK has for a 10 gallon just with a 20 that will be fine...right? And how many cakes would you suggest for each 20 gallon remember I have 2 should I put 14 in each then in my 10 gallon do 7?

try this...
go to a hydroponic supply store and pick up some heydite, or walmart and get some lava rocks and an air pump and a bubble wand or 2. place the bubble wands on the bottom of your fruiting chamber and make a layer of the heydite or lava rocks on top of that. this will create air flow and gas exchange as well as keep the humidity high. if you cant do all of that...
get a bag of perlite and soak it in water(after you sterilize it of course) then drain until it's wet but not dripping and line that on the bottom of your chamber. now you will have to mist to keep humidity high being careful not to spray directly on the pins or fruit. and fan 5-7 times a day.

instead of using a fish tank i think you should use like 15 gallon tote boxes... they work very well.. atleast in my early growing ive found them to be very good

Alright I'm gunna use the perlite method then I guess. How should I sterlize any idea? I'm getting a 21 quart pressure canner I think. Do I lay the cakes directly on the perlite or do I leave them on the lid from when I birth them? How deep should I lay it also about 2-3 inches? Sorry for all the questions just I'm investing alot of money into this and do not want to mess up. :smile:


Also to the other guy, I already bought these and do not want to take these back up to the store and I dont know if I can find the recepit I think I lost it :frown: damnit.

Yeah two more thang...I will still need to build an airtight cover right? Then when I'm spraying should I just spray level on the top and let all the drops fly over and the mist will fall into the tank or what?

i agree, but if the tanks is all you have to work with, make em work. but if you can get them, large rubbermaid containers work better.

I actually just found the recepit so I'm going to be taking them all back tomorrow. What should I now get large rubbermaid containers how big?

not sure what the size of the containers are, but the biggest ones or the next size down... whatever you have room for. obviously you'll need to create more humidity for a larger space and vice versa.

you put the air pump outside the chamber and run hoses into the lava rocks where you bubble wands should be under... this will ensure even fresh air exchange and proper humidity
all of this info is in the PMP tek!!
