McMan / Air Entrainment ***UPDATED w/ PICS***
    #470167 - 11/26/01 04:54 PM (15 years, 14 days ago)

Well I have again started to cultivate and I have 4 casings (amazon from spores, brought to agar, from agar to rye, rye cased in coco coir) and I know they will be pinning shortly. So i need to introduce my method of attempting to gain proper entrainment of air. im not saying its a tek or anything, its just what i am doing and I would like anyones (McMans expert opinion of course included) opnion , pros, cons, suggestions.

anyways, i have the four casings in a container that has a fishtank heater submerged in h2o and h2o2, the casings sit ontop of that warm water bath. the bath is set for 86 degrees. in that solution there is also a fish tank bubbler introducing fresh air into the system.

the system is closed but not airtight, now i plan on attaching a small , low powered fan to the one of the lids (the lids join in the middle) and get a nice, very slow stream of air flowing and mixing fresh and old air togehter 24/7. would this do nicely for entrainment?

peace, ar393

well this is the setup, I am thinking of getting a timer to turn the fan on for only like 15 minutes per hour or less (i have to get a timer and fuck with it so it works fast enough, or go and buy a really expensive one, which i dont want (read: have enough cash) to buy.

anyways here is the link to the pictures forum:

I was thinking about something like this, except I wanted to automate it, so it would require no attention. I was gonna try to figure out ways to keep humidity up, but you just gave me a good idea. I also have a fan about the same size as yours.

Let us know how it does, so we can revel in your success!

Also, if you can do me a favor, could you lift your casings out a sec and take a pic? I want to see the bottom of your terrarium. Those pins look good though, so it seems as if it's working.

My only question is is something like a bubbler setup gonna hold humidity high enough if you have air exchange for a few minutes every hour?

psilocybian:
its pretty much automated. my cat has a fishtank heater under the casings. it sits in H202/h20 bath. then there is a grated metal shelf so to speak. I had some other pictures in the pictures forum (both of this current setup with more detail, and of just my cats tank setup. If you look at my posts in pictures you should be able to find it).

My cat scratched and cold shocked the casing that is in a picture by itself. My cat is doing some experimentation to see if its better to leave them alone, scratch, cold shock or cold shock and scratch to see what gives the greatest fruiting, not just the greatest pin set. beacuse too many pins is not always a good thing.

my cat has a fishtank pump pumping air via a stone into the water bath 24/7, the fishtank heater is fully submersed at set to 88 degrees. this keeps it humid enough that my cat has to leave the tid slightly ajar. the fan is also going 24/7 right now, my cat may need to change that though.

nobodycares42:
it is a small ~60mm fan that was pulled from a dell dimension xps from like 1997. cleaned, wiped down with clorox wipe. then sprayed with 70 % isopropyl alcohol and "fan" dried, he he he.

I will post more pics later this week, probably friday.
peace, ar393 and cat

anything else my cat can help with let me know.

So the bubbler and heater work good to keep humidity up? You gave me a very good idea. Thanks! Automation here I come!

Well, you definitely got a good pinset, just keep us updated how things go!
