Testing Air Exchange
    #959285 - 10/14/02 10:10 AM (16 years, 3 months ago)

I understand that fanning is an easy way to achieve air exchange, however I am playing around with automated methods. Any ideas how I could test to see if adaquate air exchange is occuring? Thanks!

well if your going automated depends on what you are using. if you go and buy a fish tank air pump and turn that into a bubbler in your fruiting chamber that woud be fine. youll prolly need perlite still for more humidity. liek right now i have a 5 gallon bucket with a window choped out of the top and saran wrap taped over it. a hole in the top for the tube from the bubbler into a small container of water in the fruiting chamber. and perlite. a small hole in the side near the bottom of the bucket for c02 release.

so i sitll havent answered your question realy sorry. basicly if your using a fish tank air pump or the vicks cool mist just drill a small hole in the side and youll have enough air exchange. think about it. if fanning 2-3 times a day is sufficient almost any type of automated air moving dealy will be fine. know what im saying?


That's not pretty cool.

C02 sensor and a humidistat would be the controls you need .

1. Take a high powered small fan, and plug it into a timer.
2. Put a hole in the side of the grow chamber, and put a funnel into the hole.
3. Stuff polyfill into the end of the funnel.
4. Line up fan with funnel, and turn on the fan. And enjoy not having to fan anymore.
Although you will definetly have to due some fine tuning on this method. It depends on your fan, how tightly packed your polyfill is, and how many times a day your fan goes on. I usually do it 12-16hrs a day, on my low setting (of course this is during fruiting, and not coloniztion.)
Hope this helps

I can't stop thinking, because i'm tripping about thinking about how much I am triping.
