Dude, check out


Bulk Neglect Report *completed*


Sorry to go "off site" but this rocks.

The info for this tek is at this site but the presentation is very good on this series of posts.
Hope you know how to cut and paste . . .


For simple space and content it's rad . . . Start with (2-4) 1/2 pint cakes (Thank you Dr PF ) and worm poo 1:1 or 1:2 blended in a quisenart and mix well.

PS, do you own all of that twisted art on your web site?

Hey vitti,

I tried to make the link that I mentioned an active hyperlink but had no luck. tried <A HREF="http..."></A> and \ link {}. What's the code, or are there just too many & and = in the link?

Serialkiller, which link could you not access? The one I posted takes a LLOOOONG time to load but it's worth it.

Serialkiller. I just checked out your setup and it's a hip li'l shroom home to be sure. However there is one detail you should take care of before you get mycoporn yields. That is the ultrasonic. I see you have several casings in the terrarium. Ultrasonic humidification is only for cakes, not casings. Unless I am mistaken, that is condensation dripping down the wals of the greenhouse. This indicates the humidity is way too high and contams will be more prolific. The dense fog of the ultrasonic clogs the casing up and prevents the casing moisture from evaporating slowly which is what results in a beatiful flush. If you want to grow some real crazy casings, I would purchase a small Holmes cool mist. Get the smallest one they have. Its only like $39.99 and its well worth the investment.
So here's my suggestion for your new terrarium - occupy one of the 3 closets. Remodel the rubbermaid storage bins so that they have a middle shelf halfway up from the bottom. This shelf should just lift off so it can be placed on like 2 or more bolts or something in each side. You can have more than one shelf as long as they are spaced about 10 inches apart - 4in for the trays and 6in more for the shrooms. Remodel your new coolmist humidifier so all the output goes through two lengths of tubing, one into each rubbermaid. Cut a small hole on the side or cover of each rubbermaid and cover it with clear plastic. This is the light hole and need not be very big at all. Place you bins in the closet with your straw trays in the bottom and the other casings on the middle shelf of each rubbermaid. Leave the humidifier on 24/7 on such a setting that the little humidity guage (which comes with the humidifier and which you can place in either bin) is at the 3 o'clock position. Every time you remember, turn the light in the closet on for a bit. Completely maintenance free except for filling the water tank in the humidifier once a week, and of course, harvesting.

Usually you can get em at like Walmart but this is not the season. Check the web, there are any number of suppliers. Holmes website is www.holmesproducts.com. and they have some at their estore. I like the ones with the removable tank. Even if you just search on yahoo for "Holmes cool mist" you should pull up a whole bunch. But make sure you get one that is Holmes and not a Holmes copy and try to get one that comes with the filter, not sold seperately.

What is your mane concern ? Do you want stealth or just a more efficent way of cultivating . If its stealth the easy thing to do is go to the store and buy 2 of the under bed plastic storage bins . Also buy a replacement hose for a vacum cleaner . You need some decent rubber weather striping to seal the bins and a timmer for the cool mist . Use a thin perlite layer 1 inch or so on the bottoms of the bins . Hook the 2 bins together on the inside walls of the bins the ones that follow the center of the bed . Use a few feet so the bins dont have to be dissconected to pull out just leave a loop ov vacum hose so you can completly pull one side out from under the bed at a time . Allso in the center line put a 2 or 4 foot florecent light for pining. The cool mist is used soley for gas exchange and come on for only a few minutes an hour .

With the closets You can put a few bins in them and work like that pretty much the way you have been doing things just with plastic bins insted of the green house setup .

Or you could wrap the walls and floors of the closet with plastic as well as seal the door tight and use the entire closet as a fruiting chamber but by far plastic bins are the best IMHO
They can be customized in many ways that fishtanks cant be.

Would one of these work out for you ???

i think that the bins in the closet will probably work the best for me. i just need to decide weather i should use the bins as a big casing orif i should rig up some shelves in there. but i am definetely going to ust the bins.

i need help with some new setup ideas.i think it is time to change my setup.it is not very inconspicous.i will even make this fun. for the 2 best ideas i will send you a free syringe. you can pick any strain i have!!!
my last setup was a greenhouse with a 30w grow light in the top of it, a ultrasonic humidifier,and a air purifier. i also have shelves in the greenhouse for the casings.
to look at the pics of my setup go to http://serialkiller.balls.com. Ok heres what i have. i have 2 41 gallon rubbermaid storage boxes all the verm and perlite i need. i also have 3 bales of wheat straw. i would like to still be able to use the humidifier.i would also like to stay away from cakes.i need something that looks like nothing out of the ordinary.( i am going to have a lot of company in the next few weeks). any ideas will be appreciated.

bingo! thats what i got pretty much. got a shelv, 2 x 20 watt lights, the ballast heats the shelf above it for a warm spot for jars, casings etc. 2 tubs, timer, set to 12/12 on during night off during day, makes for some pretty stable temps with the AC on during the day.

pics here

i have another light going under the shelf on the other side soon as i feel the need for it.

I think your greenhouse is great!

I don't know what to tell you on the rubbermaid tubs...they are easier to maintain than that ultrasonic greenhouse, so you probably won't need this help. I would suggest running 1 1/2 inch pvc from the top of your kaz ultrasonic to the rubbermaid bins. If you can figure out a way to use garden hose it may work better, but the pvc will fit very well into that hole (I have the same humidifier).

either put lids on the bins and put the humidifier on a timer, or put on loose plastic sheets to top the bins and leave the humidifier on. It will take playing with, maybe needs some soda bottles to get it right, but it should work.

if you want it to look nothing out of the ordinary, don't use the humidifier. You won't need it anyway...just make the bottom of the bins large straw casings, and your humidity will be fine along with light misting, as large casings have their own micro-climate. Maybe you could take your straw and incorporate poop for some monster fruiting compost. If you are thinking about shelves for trays of casings like your greenhouse, then good luck, bc in a rubbermaid it ain't easy.

use that hepa for a flowhood, see ya brother

My first question is Do you have a spare closet ?
My 2nd question is what size bed do you have and is it clean underneath it? I have good solutions for both of these rooms . And others as well tell me where you would like to grow and i can tell you how I would do it . Ive set up multiple sytems for my self and others for friends . We can go as elaborate as a moving wall if you would like but i would have to come over for that Ive hidden gardens and now fungus amoung us without anyone knowing.

Ahhhhh....
Hey serialkiller, gonna park a lil post here so
as to be just a tad inconspicous :)

Practicing adjusting fruiting chambers myself :)
Found that I cried like a little bitch when my friend tried fruiting out of tubs, and then a larger chamber, failure/to much work.... Shoulda stuck to fish tanks!! I wish someone in this thread lived close enough to slap me everytime i think i know it all already... Geez... LOL!!!

Freakin A... Took a little motivation on my friends part, but his cakes are waiting...So he took his lab incubator with double doors, the inside door being glass and opened it up...

Crazy, thing musta been wired by an electrician
on some good DMT... The biggest problem was that the humidifier inside wasn't getting water, and that despite pressing tons of buttons and such, the thing would just heat up, and up, and up...

No good for fruiting, was ascared it would kill jars to, did use it for that... Had it on a timer, but it is a bit exotic for an incubation chamber...

So anyways... Been ripping my freakin hair out,
looking for a better way to fruit. tubs with plexiglass tops look suspicsious... Freezer is WAY to goddamn big..

Leaving the unit off, Took out a c02 exhaust line,
replaced it with a bubblestone in a quart jar...

This unit is sealed, left overnight it had crazy humidity, which is good, as the last failed attempt at humidity ended up with a LOT of dry cakes. REALLY dry cakes.. lost countless hours of work... ah well..

This thing is COMPLETELY sealed like i said... will this affect the fish pump air line coming in?
Loosened up the door a tad, so a FEW tiny bits could get out..

Will the Bubbler be enough? Used perlite, reptile under tank heaters, humidifiers as well as ultra sonics, this is new ground fer me, er, my friend :)

Looks good in there, sitting at a nice 76 degrees,, Sprayed last night, Lotsa moisture this morning...

Anyway, sorry for trampling your thread, but I know yall and don't really want to share all this with newbies.. Thanks for letting me vent, You guys are the only ones i tell, so i get it all bottled up... Anyways!!!

Maliki.... Hidden rooms!!! I love it!!!
Thought about that to, false walls and such...
Brilliant really... Would rock, immensely..
Just building it would be worth it :)

So serialkiller, what direction do you think you are going to go? You seem to have lotsa room...
You gonna create? Or use something existing?
Hmmm? HMmmm?

:)

maliki: i have 3 spare closets. i also have a queen size bed off the ground about 6 inches.

Dr. cubensis: i think i am going to use the tubs as a big casing. i think i am going to colonize pf jars then when fully colonized. put in the blender then powder them. then i will mix with wheat straw, let colonize then case with worm castings and verm mixed together.

for light i will cut a circle in the top of the tub and rig up a makeshift drop light on a timer.
(just a light bulb on a powercord with an on/off switch). then i will either hook up the ultrasonic humidifier to some tubing and run it to the tubs i.e. some kind of misting system.
these are just ideas.
i would like it to be inconspicous, and would like to get a good flush. and i would also like to use up my straw.
im really not sure what to do yet. i have 13 casings in the greenhouse now.( ill keep those in there untill their spent) but i have 36 pf style jars i just knocked up today. so i figure i have 30-45 days to get some ideas and implement them.

peace

Very nice mister...

Have nothing to add to all of that, i tried and had to erase it due to extreme " possible failure ...

Have you played much with rye grain or birdseed serialkiller?

all my attempts of rye grain have failed. they contam when i put them into casings. i get very good growth in the jars but when i case into verm i fail. but mypf jars do great in casings. i havent tried birdseed yet. im not looking down that path yet. i would like to try the straw and worm poop thing. i heard you get some very nice shrooms.
