is this a decent fruiting chamber?
    #7045941 - 06/14/07 02:36 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

tell me if this fruiting chamber will work for the strain B+

take a big blastic bucket and put about 3 inches of soaking wet paper towels on the bottom... then set the colonized cake straight onto the paper towels.. then putting seran wrap or a see-through plastic bag over the top to keep in humidity...every couple hours taking the bag off and fanning out the old air with a piece of cardboard... and spraying the paper towels to keep them wet for maximum humidity...

questions:

should i drill a few small holes in the chamber?

should i make the bag over the top air tight? or just set it on there?

should i put something between the cake and the paper towels so they are not touching?


all helpful tips are appreciated....

I would not use paper towels for humidification....use perlite...you dont want to cut any corners...because you can ruin your progress...

paper towels also wont hold humidity as long as perlite and probably harbor more potentiall for mold...

If your looking for a cheap terarium try this:
Get a 2 liter bottle...
(starting from the top) 1/4-3/8 the way down cut around bottle then trim until one piece fits snug inside of the other. Put a cotton ball where the cap goes
In the bottom put some perlite 3 inches+ and place cake on top of something on the perlite..
Now fan 5+ times a day(simply remove top and put it back on for fanning):grin::mushroom2::mushroom2:

Do it the way you described. People take this mushroom growing thing way too seriously.

There's a thousand and one ways to do something, guys on here like to do things strictly by the book but you really don't have to.

Ive seen people fruit cakes in a zip lock bag with no perlite, no paper towels no nothing.

Really you don't need the towels just squirt a mist of water every other time you fan.

Yeah perlite is a fairly new way to humidify a cake grow chamber. Back in the day they used to just put the cakes in a ten gallon fish tank and mist with a spray bottle.

It takes more of your attention and time but you are probably going to look at them 25 times a day anyway so you may as well manually humidify.

Perlite. EOD.

It's hilarious how surefire individuals can be even in the midst of their own incongruous inquisition.

What is the point of this thread if you are positive it will work?

You better take some pictures of your backwater teks, I really can't wait for the "Paper Towel FC" and the "Waterlogged driftwood covered by a foot of soil and shit in an aquarium" pictorials!

Better take some pics of your first flush too because frankly with a posting history like this I'd be amazed if you ever see a solitary pin.

Dont be such a cunt. Making humidity is not rocket science like allot of you would like to think it is.

Jeez calm down guys...

The reason people give you a hard time for asking questions like that is because you wouldn't ask them if you read the FAQs first. You can make up your own experimental methods if you want, but if you've come here to learn how to do this, why not use tried and true methods instead of ignoring them and making up your own? Obviously they work; the only reason to try something else is to a) experiment or b) to cut corners.

Also, you replied to the wrong person and called them a cunt. No reason to get bent out of shape here.

There's an old '90s tek that uses paper towels. It's not a good idea. They will mold within a few weeks, no question.

Yeah, but they still won't release much humidity. Why bother, what makes paper towels so damned appealing? Look, if you have some verm, you can use that at the bottom instead of perlite. That does work, it's what I did at first.
