multiple rubermaide containers
    #715280 - 07/01/02 10:18 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Hi,

My Panda Bear just purchased 50 rubermaid containers, the kind that are about 2ft tall and is now putting plexi glass lids on them all.. and wireing in LED lights on the inside of them..

what he was wondering is.. what is an efficient way to keep humidity in a large ammount of containers..

he has read about perlite and linking cool mist humidifers to the terrariums..

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Pictures&Number=666986&page=&view=&sb=&o=&fpart=1&vc=1&PHPSESSID=

that is the method he will be using to do it.. have a tray in the bottom of the container.. with pretty much the same casing materials..

thanks

Hmm

Perlite might be overly messy to prepare for 50 rubbermades. Coolmist would be expensive.

Do you really need 50 containers hehehe. Thats shitloads of mushrooms.

6.89 / each per rubbermaid.. pretty expensive.. canadian funds though.

how many of them could the panda hook to one cool mist humdifier? maybe the panda could buy a large industrial humidifier that could be "Teed" off multiple times to 50 or more rubbermaids..

anyone ever hear of doing this?

or is there better ways to bulk grow not using rubbermaid containers?

How many trays do each of your tubs hold? With that money involved maybe you should have though of investing in something like Anno has or had. That rack shelving unit with the martha stuart Zip cover.I think this would work better than 50 tubs.

Just imagining a cleaning cycle for 50 rubbermaids. . .when you are on that large of a scale, you should just stick plastic sheeting to the walls and go for it.
With 50 rubbermaids, even the best part of cultivating--picking the fruits of your labor--will become a pain in the ass. And just imagine a gnat infestation. . .AGGH!!

Just be careful amigo, best luck.

moreover, ripper had some excellent humidifcation thoughts that would probably be better / easier in the application you're thinking:

---- start rippers work ----

Well let me say first off the person who though of using perlite for humidification was VERY creative. Not only does it do a great job on humidification, its CHEAP! Now the only problem I see with it is this. Perlite humidification requires some time to build up to the proper humidity(2-3 hours ?) and most of the time people aren't running pumps because they don't want to introduce non-humid air into the chamber. Also traditional methods of using perlite require using a layer of perlite along the bottom and yackidy smack.
Materials:

Perlite

Pitcher(SP?) (used for ice tea and kool-aid)

Water(tap water or distilled)

H2O2-Hydrogen Peroxide(optional but recommended)

So heres what I did. I took a pitcher(SP?) that was 5" in diameter, I filled it about 1/2 way full with dry perlite, then I added water(making sure to get all the perlite on top wet to weigh it down) until about 3" of water was at the bottom, now I added about 50 mL of H2O2(Hydrogen Peroxide 3% solution) spread over the top of this, I placed this into the chamber, now I took a air pump for a fish tank(I used the one with dual outputs) ran the hose into the chamber and down into the water under the perlite. I leave this running 24/7.

Now the benefits of this vs. the traditional method:
#1 it takes up less space...
#2 it introduces fresh air
#3 the hydrogen peroxide added to the top seems to evaporate into the air preventing things like cobweb mold and trichoderma(not completely but it made a significant difference, BTW- I ran it both ways to see if it was just placebo and it showed up to have a positive impact)
#4 since theres fresh air being introduced along with humidity the only time the chamber needs to be opened is for picking!
#5 this seems to bring the chamber to 90-95% humidity in about 60 minutes vs. the other method
#6 cleaning it up is a snap, just removing a container, rather then scooping perlite off the bottom(pain in the ASS!)

And this isn't just for small chambers.. this method was used on an aquarium that was 13"x48"x20"... only about 6 cups of perlite in the container and around 1/3 of a gallon of water were used...

---- end rippers work ----

I dunno!

It's called common sense not a TeK. I use a similar system, the difference is that i use geolite at the bottom and fill it with h2o/h2o2 till it reaches the geolite level, the geolite is used so the pans/cakes have a fundation and don't sink, then i put a thin layer of perlite, tube with airstone goes bellow the perlite layer and into the water and geolite.

Peace,
MAIA

stranger... you're in way over your head... first off plexi glass lids and LED's for that many containers? you're nuts. Not only is what you're doing a long time in prison but you're going about it all wrong. Are you using cakes too?

Hey buddy, i surely know what Tek stands for, i see the word Tek applied many times in the wrong way, you don't have to use the word tek in every technique you see, most of them should be considered as procedures of the technique not a bunch of teks. Being or not a tek, the truth is he's offering his knowlodge to the comunity, i know phrozendata from this boards for a long time, he also has helped me before and by no means i did any critics to its job, i did my part by saying how i build my terrarium, in a diferent way but with the same objective in mind. If you don't understand what i've said or decribed then it's your problem, if you think i need common sense then i think you need to read and experience more and not act like a moron, if there's someone flaming around here that one is you, i just like to see everything in its right place, you can blame me for that if you want.

Peace,
MAIA

Why not just use casings and give it a spray and a fanning once in the morning and once at night.......Dont make this more complex than it has to be Geolite or perlite would also work(better for cakes prolly).......damn...had more to say but totally just lost my train of thought


::edit:: muh....this was already mentioned oops

I hope you like fanning tubs.........hehehe.......Your not going to get the air exchange/movement you need to do what you have in mind. Your room will heat up and be very humid, but be very stale with a high co2 level in the air.

If I were to shoot my load and go for yeild id buy a humidistat from fungi perfecti, a shitload of kitty litter tubs, a huge ultrasonic humidifier, a small fan, a couple of large room type hepa filters, a roll of plastic, some duct tape and some saw horses and sheets of plywood. Id install a small vent fan too.

1 kitty litter tub would make a 1/4 lb in four weeks with proper care, and no fanning. You could put 16 1 x 2' tubs on a sheet of plywood, sawhorses keeping it off the floor.

Where you getting your spawn and substrate. I recon one of those tubs will hold 5-8 lb of dung, straw, whatever.....Spawn bag a tub sounds about right.
