Setting up my 1st Fruiting Chamber
    #4650617 - 09/12/05 04:18 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

OK, I got 10 PF jars fully colonized and starting to pin. I am going to use a 10 gal aquarium. I've decided to use a layer of moist perlite on the bottom of the tank, followed by water mixed with sodium peroxide to a level about 1/2 of the perlite. Then cover with a layer of foil, then place the cakes on the foil. I have a couple of questions.

1. As for the perlite, do I have to sterilize or will the water/peroxide take care of this?

2. Does the perlite/water mix eliminate the need to spray periodically? Should I just refill with water/peroxide when the level goes low?

3. Whats this double end casing I have heard of. Do I Place a layer of sterile moist vermiculite under the cake and over the cake? Will this increase yield?

Thanks..

1. I have never sterilized perlite.
just add water/peroxide to it.

2. Yes you should lightly mist the inside of your fruiting chamber.
the walls and the cakes.

3. Place a layer of moist vermiculite under the cake and over the cake.
You will get larger 1st and 2nd flushes.

Thanks Road

Just a couple of more ??'s

How often do I spray the walls of the fruiting chamber and doesn't the PF TEK say not to spray the cakes directly, but to use a spray shield. I assume since I would be using the moist perlite I would not have to spray that often?? How often should I fan it? I plan to use plain Saran wrap to cover the tank.

Should I sterilize the vermiculite that goes under and over the cake? And how much water should I use? the same as the original recipe? except without the the rice flour of course..

Thanks again road

Would you recommend a water/peroxide mix when you mist like that?
