about to start my first crop, and i have some ?'s
    #540478 - 02/04/02 07:00 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

hmmm lets see. i recently ordered 2 p cubensis spore syringes, and am making preperations to start some jars in a few days. I have a few questions about some things before i get started. First off, does perlite produce enough humidification for say... 10 cakes? Or would you reccomend using a fish tank bubbler, or a combination of both maybe? And if i use the bubbler, is it necessary to have a drip shield of some sort? Is it easier to use a 10 gallon fish tank or a 18 gallon storeage bin? I have both. Ummm what else....Would anyone reccomend casing over cakes or the other way around? Haha oh jeeze... i know i sound stupid, but i'd rather do thinkgs properly if at all possible. If you are willing to volunteer any other tips i would be ever so gratefull. Any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated. There are probably posts like this every day, but im new here so hook a brother up!!!! thanks....

peace!

Perlite will be good for 10 cakes. I would reccomend the bubbler. The bubbler is a good source of airation, plus it can only add to the humidity which is good if you are doing cakes. A drip shield is not needed. As far as the actual terrarium I don't think it really matters. The fish tank would be a painn in the ass to get a hole drilled in the bottom. I did it, but most wouldn't. The storage bin is bigger and easier to customize. Since this is your first time I would suggest doing some cakes and maybe one or two casings just to familiarize yourself with the process. Good luck.

it's to allow the built up c02 to escape. It's not necisary if you wanna fan it all the time, but I find it much easier and effective just to put a bubbler in there and let it do the work for you. It's also a lot easier if your lid is made out of saran wrap like mine was. It's kinda a bitch to keep undoing the top and redoing it.

take a look at this. It has some pics of my old setup. It can give you a few ideas. If you keep scrolling down it gets slightly modified. And i never updated that link at the bottom that was supposed to have all the shit i grew.

to make a casing, do i just crumble some cakes into a tupperware container? that seems too easy somehow.
