Terrarium ???
« on: May 28, 2007, 11:00:49 AM »

Hay ya'all,

How bout that Poor Mans Terrarium? is that sufficient for good yield? It calls for 1 1/2 to 2 inch of perlite but  their wire mesh is cut just 1 inch wider at each end making it 2 inches longer, to bend down rendering only one inch raise from the bottom of the container, wihch leaves the mesh sitting on top of the perlite, yes?

I like the idea along with the simplicity. What say you? or what does your opinions have to offer?

Thanks , axis

what about using plain water with the screen method keeping the jars above the water? that would provide plenty of humidity, yes? don't you have to baby sit using a paper towel?

I'm going off the land from reading too damned many techniques and methods, having tough time deciding which way to go.

I don't believe to have to go to a lot of expense unless it is the best way to go for the outcome, but I'd like to figure out what method I would use before too much longer.

thanx for the reply, warrior dude.
 So the water idea isn't good? dont you have to keep adding water to the paper towel whereas an inch or two of water at the bottom (with the cakes above on wire mesh) would seem to last a long time.

Anyone else?

ANNO, U out there?

BAPH???

does the perlite provide any nutrition or anything other than humidity? If not I think I will try plain water in the bottom of the FC and wire mesh above the water, then what?, cover with glass top and monitor temp (@70-72) and humidity (?)

How bout if and when I succeed with "fruits" (and all jars aren't ready a the same time) and I need to pick some? will I need to let the fruit dryer(without heat) run 24/7 and just keep adding and taking as they dry?

What if I bag some in the fridge hoping to munch on a weekend and it doesn't come together, will they rott before the dryer can dry them?

don't get ahead of yourself bro.
get the fc worked out.
When it comes to drying mushies all you have to do is put them in front of a fan on a window screen.
It may take a bit longer to dry but so what!!!
keep it simple.
