well, shroom wizards guide blows balls, just to let you know.


To answer your question though, cool mists help with humidity, but are not always enough. Some people get by with just using a cool mist, but an ultrasonic will raise it very quickly in comparison.

cool mist is mainly used for fresh air, ultrasonic for humidity.

your setup looks ok other than that. The soil will work. I personally don't like soil, but I have seen some decent results from it.

GL TO YA.

To start off with, you want to get a good guide to get your cakes colonized. Look up PF TEK for simple minds.

Once colonized:

I usually case BRF or RYE to 60/40 mix. I also spawn to H.poo and then case using 60/40 when I can get my hands on it.

My fav casing tek is roadkill's 60/40, found here:

Oh, sorry, I edited my post and cut that line out by mistake.

you can pick up an ultrasonic from the same stores you find cool mists at.

walgreens, walmart, etc.

Ok thanx. i thought that might be where to get it. I already have one but it is large. I saw that they sell them smaller just know, but do i want the cool mist (i know that may sound dumb from q's above) or the warm on i think it would be the warm one but just making sure. LOL Also If I get the ultra sonic then should i still use my cool mist setup or will it be absolete?

If you're using the entire container as a casing, it can keep the humidity up on it's own. Just mist the walls and fan it and it should be fine. I've even left the entire thing alone with a hole for air exchange and it's been fine. Though, misting would help keep the casing layer moist and is preferred.

Ok sry for going off the subject but would it help if i mixed in honey with the casing layer for more nutes or no?

Also ok im using the whole thing as a case. I told ppl that i was going to use nothing before and they said I wouldn't get very good yeilds, If i use the humidifiers will i get better results?

I've heard of ppl using honey in substrates, but I don't know about their success... I tried it in some PF jars and it sucked horribly. A friend had problems too. My biggest issue was that it turned the substrate into something along the consistancy of almost dried cement. Myc couldn't really get through it, and it ended up just dying after a month of SLOOOOOOOOOW colonization. His problem was that he got more contams on the ones with honey (god knows how, honey is a natural preservative).

no man, don't add honey to the casing layer. You don't ever add anything nutritious to a casing layer.
