Heat + Humidity
    #644761 - 05/25/02 01:47 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

How can I create the optimal conditions for the fruiting stage?
Like Humidity, Air exchange etc. There's just so many ways which is the best, and least time consuming?
Also is there a way to make the growing chamber compleatly self automated?
Oh ya and there casings I'm trying to fruit.

Thanx

To make your terranium self automated do the following:

Buy an air pump and put it in a container that has strips of hepa filter on it. This will make the air free of contams. Then epoxy a hose from the air pump out the container and into the terranium. Hook the air pump up to a timer and be sure to epoxy all openings where contams could get in/out.
Buy a Hygrometer at Wally World to keep accurate recording of temp/humidity.
To create and control humidity, I would refer to the following post:

And lastly, instead of having to open the chamber up to air it out, hook up a PVC tube to your terranium, and epoxy a computer fan to it. Then place a filter disk or hepa filter over the cut in the terranium. Once again, be sure to epoxy EVERYTHING so you don't get fucked by contams.

Will this have enough humidity for a 20 square feet growing chamber?

no

I'm building a 20' by 20' grow room.
The whole room is going to be covered in Visqueen (heavy duty plastic).
I'm going to use a cool mist humidifier....for the humidity.
I'll have to mess around with a timer til i get the right humidity.

Your gonna have to play around with a few ideas til you get the right combination.

Taken from ShroomGod's Humidifier Tek v1.0:

Purchase a small cool mist humidifier, a 5/8 inch (preferably 11/16th inch if you can find it) drill bit, some duck tape, and the cheapest 5/8 inch inner diameter garden hose you can find.

Cover the original humidity output slot with duck tape.

Cut a length of hose (cut off the end attachments) at least 1.5 feet long but preferably longer. It must be long enough to connect the humidifier to your terrarium and allow the mist to hit the sides of the hose.

Drill a hole in the corner of the humidifier. Wiggle the drill around a bit to make it slightly larger if you could just find the 5/8" bit.

Using your body weight try to squeeze the hose in about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. It will be tight. You'll have to work with it as it won't push in easily.

Repeat steps 4 and 5 for one of the other three corners if you'd like an additional output. Some have reported that two outputs is the maximum number their humidifier can handle, and indeed, this is the largest number I have ever personally used.

Hook up the terrarium to the hose. The hose needs to be long and curvy enough to "de-mist" the output. On the other hand, I would not recommend vertical loops as they can collect water in them blocking the air passage. The hose should be laid such that any water drops that form on the inner walls of the hose run back down in to the humidifier. This is very important, especially in the first foot of hose, because if you don't lay the hose this way, water will drip in to your terrarium causing major problems! Just to be safe, place a small cup in the terrarium under the output of the hose.

Fill the humidifier's reservoir with water. I'd also recommend adding 1/8th to 1/4th cups 3% hydrogen peroxide (stuff at the drug store) per gallon water to keep it fresh.

Run 24/7.
