WBS Casing humidty questions.
    #4678865 - 09/18/05 09:18 PM (12 years, 7 days ago)

In a tub with 8 polyfil-stuffed holes, should one put perlite or something on the bottom to raise the humidty? I have read that a good casing will not need much work done on it. Is this true or should one go scrounge up a hygrometer and fiddle around?

Not needed, just mist the casings directly, then mist the walls if you need more humidity beyond that. Do it enough and you'll know just how much by eyeballing the chamber. I suppose you can also get a hygrometer and check the readings if you want, but that's also not necessary.

are you talking about doing a single tub tek freedomfight?? 4 holes along the top and 4 holes on the bottom (2 sets of 2 on oposite walls)?? if so, once you put your casing into the fruiting chamber, dont open it till harvest time.. it will create its own enviroment in there.. 8 1" - 1 1/4" holes stuffed with polly-fill will provide enough air exchange..

if im babbling on im pertty baked right now.. get back with me tomarrow :P~ :bongload: heres my single tub, with first flush of some Allens.
got 2 oz dired off two six gallon containers in a 15 gallon fruiting chamber

Yep that is exactly the setup I was referring to. My thoughts would be that the casing would dry out if it was not misted at least once every over day or so.

no as long as you have the correct moistur in your casing to begin with, it will be fine. thats why the single/double tub is IMO the best and easiest setup you could have.. just set it and forget it till harvest time. then dunk and repeat.

Is that just one tub you have there with the lid on it? What are you using for lighting?

ya i just use the single tub, no room for double tub.  but i cut my lid and put plexy glass in and siliconed/pop rivited it in place to seal it up, and i use a 2' floro light from wal-mart.  i didnt need that big of a light.. just had it laying around so i put it to some good use :smile: also check out this thred for double tec http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...e=0&fpart=1 if you want to do a single tub.. you just get rid of the top tub and put your holes in the top of your one tub..

wouldn't you want to put some holes on top AND bottom, CO2 is heavier, correct?

what do you mean by bottom.. you put 4 holes along the bottom of the tub/just above your casing layer if not using sepreate containers for your casing, and 4 holes along the top of the tub to let fresh air in. is that what you meant??
