Need Fruiting Chamber Help
    #4612684 - 09/02/05 03:55 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

ok this is my second try and this i have no problem colonizing but the fruiting is a different story the set up I'm using this time is a clear container with a plexi glass shelf with 10 cakes and under the shelf is water with a mister which creates fog which will make humidity. but its been about 6 days and nothing yet. at first i put a heater to heat up the water and at this point i was seeing bumps of white that look very wet. but then i took the heater out and now nothing is happening. Also how much light is needed and how far away does it have to be? like directly over the top or what. also what about air circulation should i drill some holes in the tank and hook up an air pump with some hoses or what. What do you think the best set-up would be?

what are your temps, you should get gauges... trust me, gauges help, i'm a successful failure! You don't need much light at all. From what i've read, seen and done (when i was successful)indirect light is enough since you have a clear tub. Is your mister a cool mist?

Make sure your temps are between 70 - 76 degrees. Give them plenty of FAE. Your lighting sounds fine.

the temp in the tub was high like around 90 something so that's why i took the heater out and fanned and the temp dropped to 80. all the mister is, is theres a metal plate on it that heats up that heats the water and shoots the mist up above the water and then the mist hovers above the water but with enough mist the tub get humid. the was condensation on the side and top with the heater on so i know it there was alot of humidity in the container but with no heater the sides dont get fogged up at all like before. What about air circulation? I've read to use air pumps? what kind of set-up do you use? Thanx

light 12/12 and then once pins come 6/18, on/off
your temps need to be right araound 74-76F
yes you need to exchange air, the air pump is good but you can also fan them about 3-4 times a day.
you need a high humidity higher than 95% is what i recomend
did you dunk them? dunking and cold shocking is great to trigger pinning and give the cakes the water they want. dunk for 12-24 hours
