auto air setup dilemna
    #579996 - 03/15/02 08:58 PM (15 years, 11 months ago)

Greetings. I want to get some feedback on tub setup of mine before I persue it further. Two medium sized rubbermaid containers w/ castings & straw subtrate. To push the envelope, both are cased with coir. The tubs after colonized w/ thai KS will be placed in a larger (around 4 by 3 ft) bin. A tray of wet perlite in a tray will be between the two subtrate tubs. A modified hepa filter with hose will be connected to a pvc pipe in the large holding tub that extends the length of the tub. The pipe has .5 in drilled holes in it and is placed along the long side of the tub toward the top. The holes face the two containers w/ subsrate. Two 4 by 4 in exhaust vents are cut above the two conatainers on the opposite side of the holding bin and coverd with filters. The air will circulate 8-15 min every two hours. for max air exchange. My problem: Wil the increased air exchange dry the coir. Anyone have exp. w/ this much air exchange. Laterz

It will dry out your casing. It doesnt take very musch at air of air exchange to dry it out. Try lowering your air output to 1 or two minutes twice daily. Thats really all thats required. CO2 isnt all bad. some CO2 is required for proper growth of the fruiting body.:)bluhoney
