Question on my terrarium ? pics
    #471485 - 11/27/01 08:47 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

The question is on the performance of the setup: The fan in the middle is used for an exhaust unit and the tubes on each side pumps fresh air in. My question was how long should I run each of the them, or will this even work(perlite is used foe humidification) http://shroomery.org/wwwthreads/files/25845-terrside1.jpg,http://shroomery.org/wwwthreads/files/82381-terrside2.jpg

you say perlite is for humidification. Are you saying that the air being pumped in is not humid when it enters the grow chamber.
My setup is just a Box w/perlite covering the bottom. I hand fan and it works just fine.

I couldn't see any of your pics. Perlite is the way to go. Be careful with your ventilation. You may be increasing the chances of contamination by pumping unclean air into your set-up. There are techs for including some sort of filtration on your ventilation. I would suggest at least 2-3 good air changes per day. You should be able to accomplish this with 1 hour on 7 off. You've got to experiment though, be sure to watch your humidity. Good luck!

You shouldn?t let the fan run a long time - perhaps 1 minute every 4 hours.
