FC for a casing
    #7211335 - 07/22/07 09:42 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Sorry everyone for this post. I know this topic has been posted a lot but I cant seem to get a straight answer.

- What would be an ideal fruiting chamber for a casing but at the same time being fairly stealthy and inexpensive?

If I propped my casing up in a PMP w/ perlite and managed to keep the temp around 72-77 F and RH at 82%-92% wouldnt that be sufficient for mushroom growth?

Thanks for the help,
AG Tek

I made a nice terrarium with a couple of Sterilite containers. Worked great. Your temps and RH sound about right, it should work. :thumbup:

Of course, you can get a better answer with more info:
species
strain
grow method (casing with what?)
substrate materials,
etc.

Make a monotub and ditch the heating system. Room temp is less than ideal, but not to the point you want to spend money and time on heating your stuff. Wires are suspicious anyway. You need the holes in a monotub for FAE, a PMP isn't going to have the air exchange you need without mega pumps, but that means more wires and noises. Stick it in a corner behind a bed or desk where it will get indirect sunlight.

Wow sorry about that everyone.

P. Cubensis: Ecuador and B+

Casing would be based off 50/50 tek and crumbling my (6) pf cakes in either a aluminum bread pan or a shallow rubbermaid tub non-translucent

I guess I over exaggerated with the "stealthy" remark...I would need something that could easily be transported out of my room if the girlfriend or parents ever showed up at my place.

PmP or mono tub would be great for that.

Oh, if it only needs to be like that- then just go for it. B+ is a very friendly and forgiving strain, it's not going to give you a hard time over something like being moved a bit.

72 degrees, 90% RH? Go for it. PMP, terrarium, whatever works. Probably get more/bigger/better results spawning the cakes to a substrate (hpoo, coir, etc) but it will work ok without.

Edit- didn't read above remark in time. Good luck- post pics!

I Will definately make a grow log w/ pics just in case anything goes wrong.

Yeah I live in Alaska so there isnt much livestock here to begin with and its almost winter so its hard to get all of the necessary equipment for bulk substrates.

Thanks for the tips everyone you've been great,
AG Tek

June-August: Summer Average Temp. around 75F
September-March: Winter Temp. Average Temp. around 0-10F

So I cant imagine whats its going to be like growing mushrooms in those kind of conditions. Granted im going to be inside around 70F.

Will the outside Temps have any effect with cultvation even though im inside?

Well the colder air will be a lot drier than, so it could be a little harder keeping RH up. But still it should be no problem, just watch it.

Thanks Again,

You'll be fine. My humidity is extra-low, and I deal with it.
I use big ziploc bags with individual trays, but a real fruiting chamber is my next project. If you get the supplies you need, perlite and such, you'll do ok at 70 degrees.
