Air pump in fridge to cool terr?
    #770130 - 07/23/02 11:36 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Hey everyone,

I am having serious problems trying to keep my terrarium cool enough for fruiting. My grow room is on the other side of the house from where my AC is located and it doesnt cool it. Ice packs were a disaster and this is the only idea i can think of.

My grow room has an extra fridge in it and i was trying to think of a way to use it. Here was my idea: I would put a small air pump inside my fridge. The end of the tube that the pump pumps air through would be submersed in a water/peroxide mix to keep contams out. The water/peroxide would be kept in a air-tight bottle with 2 hoses going through the cap, one in and one out. Then i would put another hose from the top of the bottle that would run into my terrarium and provide cool, humid air.

Would this work? Will there still be a chance i could introduce a new contam?

Thanks
Fd

are you using cakes or casings? the cold simply tells the fungus to fruit... you don't need it to remain cold once fruiting has begun. unless it's insanely hot in your home, you'll be ok with just a cold shocking in the fridge for 12 hours. that'll get your shit to fruit. good luck.

It has already begun to flush! The grow room is kept at like 86-88 degrees and that too hot for the casing. I dont want to cold shock it i just want to cool it down. Maybe ill put the terr inside another container and let it cool the air around it, that would be better right?

Here is what i did, I build a very simply little airconditioner for my terrium ?kinda?



As you can see, the tubing from the pump runs into the small ?CHEAP? cooler, inside the cooler there is about 5-feet of tubing which is coiled around in there ?so that the air has enough time to get chilled? and then run out of the cooler by connecting it to a nipple, the cooler is then filled with water ?with the coiled tubing inside? and frozen. When your terrium needs some cooling simply connect the cooler to the pump on one end, and the terrium on another end, styrofoam keeps ice frozen really well. I use this all the time, helps to constantly initiate new pinning without the mess of ice-packs, and the risk and inconvienience of putting your casing in the fridge. Some people may find it stupid, but it?s simple and it works great for me.

By the way, this also helps with humidity, as the warm air passes through the frozen tubingthe air tends to pick up some moisture, or is that condensation hehe
