Is My Setup Good?
    #4651477 - 09/12/05 07:48 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Ok well i just made this setup after reading sea of shrooms casing and im going to be using this, if it is ok. Well i'm not going to be making my terr. out of an aqarium because it cost more and I already have these materials.

http://img4.picsplace.to/img.php?file=img4/5/blakes_setup_cake_1.jpg

Okay now for my q's.

1. Should i use perilite instead of verm. for bottum layer

2. i'll have my cool mist running for three 4 hour periods throughtout that day. i'll use a time. i was woundering if this was a good idea i want the humidity to stay up and i thought this might be just right.

3. ok I was also woundering what U guys would recomend for my humidity. i read the directions i just want diff. veiws. Also to setup will be in my closet so the average temp. is 75 degrees, is this ok? and if i was to heat my terr. what would u recomend, what have you had best results with?

okay thats it i know you may have seen a simular post earliar but i changed my tek to this. The last time i Swear!! LOL i'm trying to get good relust. Just to let you know i have 12 jars of GT growing i innoced last wed or thurs and i have only lost one jar, cobweb!! damn that stupid cobweb. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :grin:

1.no use verm

2. You will have to figure out what works best for your setup.

3.casing call for about 90-93. Casings sustain a lot of humidity by themselves.

Definitely use perlite instead of verm. But, you shouldn't need all that to control humidity. In my experience using just perlite has done fine. The aquarium pump and cool mist are good for air exchange, but added that with the perlite and I think it's a bit too much humidity. But, on a good note, 75 degrees is pretty ideal for fruiting.

I thought he was talking about the casing. Thats why I said verm. My bad. I didn't know he was talking about the terrarium.

In that case the cool mist should be plenty for humidity.

How about nothing? If you can maintain your humidity with the cool mist then you don't need to put anything on the bottom. Maybe a drain to help get rid of standing water.

i'd go with two bubble wands and some hydroton instead of the perlite. perlite is MESSY.

search for the poor man's pod on the message board. can't go wrong with it.
