Also, how often do you run it? Those look like fairly small hoses, so do you run it constantly?

I just put together a new addition to the old fruiting chamber setup that I had. I made it double stacked, one container for cakes and the other for casings. The ultrasonic adequately humidifies both chambers using the smaller one liter bottle instead of the two liter. I will be adding a perlite layer on the bottom of both containers and 18 inch fluorescent lights. Well, whatchya think?

That's a cool way to have a lid on that bottom terrarium, so you wouldn't have to move the top one off.

I will be adding perlite to help cut down the running time of the humidifier, which will be running somewhere around six to eight hours a day. This is hopefully going to be the future home of twenty pf cakes with four different strains. I am also thinking of doing a flatcake casing or maybe just keep it simple and go with the hongus casing tek> just not sure yet, any suggestions? many thanks

both hongus and flatcake are quite similar,
do both and compare.

That sounds like a good idea, i think ill do both. I want to try adding coir to the verm on one of my casings so that i see if it makes a difference. Any suggestions on what to look for when purchasing coir (brand, organic, etc.)? It is just cocoa bark right?
