Oxygen in growth chamber?
    #620280 - 04/27/02 11:16 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Ok, so I have this idea. To avoid airing out your growth chamber once or twice a day and maybe promote better growth in your mushrooms. What if you were to pump pure oxygen into the growth chamber? Would this be better for the mushies? Oxygen tanks are hard to come by, but I know if you mix hydrogen peroxide with other stuff, it produces oxygen and water. I know manganese oxide works in this combination, but I have no freekin' clue where to get manganese oxide or what it is. I think potatoes with the hydrogen peroxide will work also? Any suggestion, ideas, what do you think? Would this work?

even if you did pump oxygen into the terrarium, you would have to pump carbon dioxide out. If you keep the area clean, opening up and fanning will not be a terrible concern for the cakes as far as contamination goes. If you are working with bulk substrate and casing a large amount, the pump idea may be the way to go. With such a large number of potential mushrooms at risk, there is no point in tempting fate, right?
good luck
