Poo fruiting concerns
    #4678349 - 09/18/05 07:09 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I've grown on poo before but I've got a new set up now and have some concerns.

I've got 2 58qt. Sterlite containers filled with about 5-7inches of poo and a few holes with polyfil aroung the top for air exchange( i do also fan). With a 10watt flourescent inside for light hanging from the cover. This is the setup i used to use with bigger tubs but I'm wandering if y'all think it's going to get too hot in there to induce fruiting. I cold shocked it tuesday so I am gonna wait a week to get worried but was wandering what you all think.

Well, Im not sure what the temperature of your house is like.. but one thing Id like to say is that.. 5 - 7 inches of poo is unnecessary. 3 - 4 inches would save poo and is more the.. ideal amount :smile:

About your light being inside the tubs.. if this works for you then cool. But I would see it as an unnecessary hazard and.. it may even be too warm. You should definitely invest in some type of digital hygrometer/thermometer. Just my two cents :thumbup:

btw- holes w/ polyfill may be more sufficient in the release of CO2 if closer to the substrate layer than the top of the container.

i guess i should mention its in my apartment with the AC going 24/7 so its a relatively cold room. prolly at or below 70. My main concern is simply having the temp too high to fruit, with enough FAE and light is 75-80 too high?

That should be just fine :smile: If you could keep it at 75.. 76.. those temps are great. 80 is a bit high, but still fine.

I would stay at around 70 F like you are doing now due to the depth of your substrate. At that depth, your colonizing poo is definitely generating alot of heat. Just be patient with it. I wouldn't fan it if you already have polyfill stuffed holes in it. The more you mess with it, the more you are exposing it to contamination risks.

PATIENCE is key.
