PmP questions
    #6145266 - 10/08/06 01:45 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Im about to start my grow when my pc comes.  Ordered it a week ago and still hasnt shipped :frown:. Anyways im about to start building my PmP and i just need to clear a few things up. First is it better to use a clear bin or would it be better to get one that is grey or blue.  Also i have an air pump and 2 28" airstones, would it be better to use 1 bin with 2 airstones or 2 bins with 1 airstone.  I will be doing cakes and i have 24 1/2 pint jar(the short ones).

Thanks,
Dunnen

no need for airstones dude.... just plug the end of the tube with a screw or whatever works..... and cut some lil holes in a the last foot of the tubing and stick that in there....... if ya got a pump that has outlets for two tubes (walmart) use a length of tubing and connect each end to it making a loop and cut some lil holes in it with fingernail/ mustache/nosehair scissors..... line that loop around the inner perimeter of the tub and viola....... use a powerfull pump or multiple pumps and lines to get enough fresh air in there...... cut 3/4 inch holes around the top of the tub on the sides and pull some polyfill stuffing (walmart) through there....... with the hoses at the bottom and the holes at top it should push the c02 up an outta there.... use some honeywater instead of straight spores to inoculate your cakes... try to get the chunky vermiculite too .... the fine vermiculite compresses when wet and takes longer to colonize cuz it doesnt get air through it

thanks for the advice. i totally forgot about polyfill. that is used to stuff pillows so it should be in the sewing section right? i got the airstones for $5 total so im just gonna end up using them because i bought them online with my air pump so it would be more of a hassel to return it. Im still wondering if it would be better to get a clear tub or a dark one

Thanks,
Dunen

You'll need some light to get in so you want a clear lid. It doesn't really matter if the tub itself is clear or not.

My PmP is doing well, so if you have anymore questions let me know.
