Re: Hydrapod Construction, stop sucking up to Mycotek [Re: psilocybinjunkie]
    #865079 - 09/05/02 09:27 AM (18 years, 9 months ago)

I would like to take this opportunity to claim a few things as my rightfull intellectual property:

A terrarium, with an aquarium pump bubbler and hydrostone in the bottom in the shape of:

1.) A rhombus
2.) A trapezoid
3.) A sphere or semisphere
4.) A disk
5.) A cylindter (ON ITS SIDE)
6.) A pyramid (any number of sides)
7.) A cone
8.) A truncated parabola
9.)An octagon
10.) A pentagon
11.) A hexagon
12.) Oh, just any damn polygon with sides that number anything other than 1 or 4.

Now Git offa mah property!!!!!  :mad: :mad: :mad:

Having said that, what is the fascination with building a homemade hydra-pod? The hydra-pod is a device of convenience, If you're going to go through all the trouble of building something, why not build something better, like a nice terrarium?

I think a few pluses to the hydra-pod are the fact that it's round, it's plastic and it is one neat-looking integrated package. It being all round prevents drip-down from above, provides a more consistent fruiting environment and is easier to clean (no corners). It being plastic makes it less prone to breaking. Plus it does look neat and it's tall so you can stack multiple cakes. And we all know that looking neat is the most important thing :-)

Yea, I've thought about it and although the technology isn't really worth all this philibustering and anger, I think its worth it to a small niche of our growers, people with limited space and time to grow in. Cake culture is, admittedly, the lowest rung of the rhizomorphic ladder as you get fairly small yields but you do begin fruiting right out of the jar and if you can humidify properly you can get a decent "personal use" yield. You don't have to fuck around with the casing which, unless you work in quite sterile conditions can really screw up your yields if done improperly. You might even get a visit from the white cotton fuzz fairy.
Anyway, the point is cake culture has its place for a lot of growers and even those of you who grow at a higher level should still be pissed that someone is trying to take advantage of people who were like you at one point.

To continue with the Hydra-Pod tech project everyone has answered most of the questions I've had with definite answers as much as possible, save one. If you look at the rim of the pod at www.hydrapod.com you can see a plastic or rubber seal encircling it, which seals when the top is placed on. Considering this I though one could get a plastic or rubber hose, slice it cleanly from side to side, fit it around the rim and silicone glue it in place. However, I'd like the opinion of someone who's actually got a pod if possible, in comparison to how the "one and only" Hydrapod has it sealed on or whatever (I thought I saw it attached with staples or something). Yea, it doesn't have to be exactly the same, I know, but I'd like to get it exactly the same each time because each similarity removes doubt in the tek. Whew, typing...

I was thinking about a casing tek with a hydra-pod: You could take a rectangular plastic container and cut out the bottom, replacing it with stainless steel screen so that no cake or verm/casing goes through but moisture could come in from the geolite, through the bottom. You'd put your substrate on the screen and your casing material on top then lay the container on the geolite in the hydra-pod. Maybe you'd want a thin perlite layer on the screen first (before the substrate) to keep the casing material from directly contacting any water.

What do you think?

Um...sounds pretty complicated considering that the casing itself provides the moisture regulation necessary for fruiting (if misted or humidified consistently). The reason that cakes need so much ambient humidity or casing or perlite or whatever is because they have to extract moisture directly from the air instead of through the casing. If you're going to go casing its better to buy one of those indoor zip up greenhouses, a cool mist humidifier, and you'll do really well.

what is the air diffuser used for? (i know its for air exchange) but do you need to hook a pump up to it or what?

yes, an air pump is included with the hydra-pod.

mycotek has always treated me fairly and with respect, why do you say all that tm? i have owned a pod for a year now, and he has always offered support with a professional attitude.

myctoek has posted link on where to get the supplies to build your own. i don't understand why all the flames. if you have the time go buy your own supplies and make your own. others who don't have the time/money, buy it from mycotek with the waranty/garuntee.

Hell,that right there says it all..I will be ordering some other supplies from you this week. It's nice to see you stand behind your products! Maybe one day in the future I will get enough money to get a pod too!

BTW Nice website!

im pretty sure if you try a search on hydropod you can probably find the tek for it. I remember a while back someone went to all the trouble to make one with illustrations and everything. Not sure if it got deleted though because i remember there being some kind of legal issue that came up as well.
Whats the deal with this topic anyways? Seems like every few months it will pop up and everyone want to know how to build one and shit and then everyone starts bitchin at mycotek about it. If he wants to charge 170 and his selling his product then way to fucking go, guess he passed his econ class and knows how a supply and demand chart works. I don't understand why this is so difficult a concept to understand... And I for one have not had any dealings with him but what i will say is way to fucking go for making a product that really makes it easy to get into this hobby and one that you can make some money off of too.

One thing you guys are missing out on is the fact that it doesn't cost a shroomery member $170. If I'm not mistaken, Mycotek has extended a permanent discount to shroomery members. It's around $130 I think. PM Mycotek for the true figure.

I've always tried to follow his example.


That would be a huge step down for you, boxtop. You are a respectable vendor with great products at very reasonable prices and a no-hassle policy.

Mycotek, on the other hand is too conceited and greedy to care about his customers. He is a liar and a cheat. Please don't follow his example.

I hate to lock the thread, but I think it's run its course. There's more than enough information here to build your own!

Peace

I usually don't get involved in such matters but.....

If you think the HydraPod is overpriced.  Fine.  No big deal...  But now I'd like for YOU to think up, design, market, and advertise a new totally automated grow chamber.

Good Luck.

These kind of posts/conversations are just like the ones from years ago when people use to talk badly about PF and his tek. 

Do you know how creative and innovative it would be if someone came up with a COMPLETELY new tek for growing mushrooms!

Designing a new product is the same way......

How much do you REALLY think it costs to manufactuer a semiconductor?

How much do you think it costs Ford to build a pickup truck?

Even better, do you really think it cost thousands of dollars to make a Rolex watch? 

If anyone at MycoTek has treated anyone badly, thats a customer service issue, NOT a "Hydrapod Construction" issue. 

Oh, and for those who say "he's made an obscene amount of money off of doing practically nothing"  .... well, like I've said above, lets see you invent, design, market and run something positive instead of being so negative.

Its threads like this that bring the OMC down.  A vendor has a product that they're proud of and they want to give people the experience of using it.  And then they get slashed for it.

Contrary to popular belief, there are many people who simply don't have the time to fan and mist all day.  A fully automated chamber is something right up their alley!  It may cost a little more, but if you've got the money to spend then what harm is being done? 

Its a shame that people, especially in this community, must always tear something apart even when the intentions are good.    :confused:    :frown:
