First Time Flow Hood Attempt

Recommended Posts

stnulberom

I'm making a flow hood today and maybe a clean room. Materials I have are 2 462cfm 15"x15" HEPA filters, 1 6" 435 cfm valuline inline fan, a big pile of wood, lots of tools, and a car to drive to home depot and lowes. Pics to follow. My intention is to use it for mycology obviously but also cannabis tissue culture and cloning. I also have a few 20"x20" furnace filters for pre filters. Don't act like you're not impressed ;) . post-383-0-43661800-1347284016_thumb.jpg

Are you putting your hepa side by side? 15x15 is kinda small by itself lol Looking forward to seeing this go down!

I will order a bigger filter next time and I am debating putting both side by side right now but honestly I'm going to seal the room and have the hepa filter recirculating the room air so it should be fine or it may end up an epic fail in which case I will not stop until I am victorious. That room is long and gone, I sure miss that sour diesel.

The Sour Diesel was an S1 from a dude and I can't wait to do another crop of her. She's one of my inspirations for building this flow hood or whatever I end up with. I have lost too many awesome cannabis strains to not learn tissue culture. Well I measured wrong and now my hepa filter box is a little ghetto pimping, I could of re cut two pieces and it would of been an easy fix but I busted out the 1x2's instead and went crazy. Used up a whole tube of dynaflex 203 sealing it up, almond color in case anyone cares. Tonight I will be installing the fan after the caulk has had enough time to cure some and sealing the piss out of it as well.

Be careful swinging that hammer busting a nut is no joke BIL. It may be a little ghetto but i think it will work only thing I didn't do is screw the hepa filter in place because I didn't have small enough screws but I may be installing it in an old grow cabinet so hopefully all is well when said or done.

That was a mixed strain grow and 6k overhead air cooled in the last shot. Strains were sour diesel, grape kush, super silver sour diesel haze, lemon cake, OG#18, SR71 Purple Kush, and SFV OG. I have more to share in a few weeks once my bitches get on and popping again but this time it will be white fire og kush, bubba kush katsu cut, and some new clones I picked up, sour purple og or something like that. Just trying to spread the love as this site has helped me out a lot. Almost every member on this thread has helped me understand the basics of mycology, thanks.

It is supposed to blow air through the hepa filter. I sealed the fan in last night with spray foam and and going to secure the fan right now with 2x4's and fire my bad bitch up! Pics to follow and I will try to censor the mj pics I didn't mean to offend anyone in a non medical state. :P

Flow hood works great no detectable leaks and no back pressure on fan seems a match made in heaven! Next post will include pics and updates on my first lc attempts...

I figured most would contam to be honest I mean I already have 50% casualties. Should I leave them at room temp now that the survivors have actual growth or put them in a mini fridge? I'm off to the lc section to read.

      Hey guys, I was at home depot and picked these up, cool thing was the guy maintaining the tropics room and cacti was a hippy/stoner/psychonaut, and came to chat plants seeing if I need help. Had the hallucinagenic cacti wiki page open and he must have glanced it, took me right over to this guy Pachycereus pringlei and said I think you may like this one, I googled the name (its listed as edibal/psychoactive, although not sure of alkaloid content) and I just kinda looked at him, and he kinda laughed and told me you would be surprised what they some times get in shipments. Took out his phone to unleash a amazing image of a room filled with all cacti and and a few massive pots of Peyote buttons (I'm guessing) he also had some grafted.   I think I ought to keep my eyes peeled at home depot lol  My other cacti is a prickly pear cacti.

      You would probably be better off using a humidity controller to manage your humidifier instead of a timer. A humidity controller (humidistat) will turn your humidifier on and off as needed to maintain the % humidity you set it for. There are other really cool features you can program, for instance you can set the controller for how many % humidity you want the FC to drop before the controller kicks the humidifier back on. That's a nifty feature because that allows for some evaporation which is said to be a very good pinning trigger. Timers turn the humidifier on and off by fixed intervals you set. The problem with timers is that they run the humidifier when they don't need to be running. Sometimes they don't run even though the humidity is low. Pins are good, even if they don't appear to be growing during this flush. Often the following flush consists of mostly of those pins that continue to grow. Aborts are different. Aborts are pins that literally die and are of no use to a flush.

      PF cakes would have been the way to go if you intend to fruit from a fully colonized jar. This is not a quick hobby. Having a plan from the beginning is important because how you begin, PF cakes or grain, determines how you fruit. You asked if you can PC grain and bulk substrate in a large jar, inoculate, let it colonize then fruit straight out of the jar. Yes you can, but it may not fully colonize. Think about how difficult it would be to thoroughly shake/mix a large glass jar or how difficult  and how long it would be for the MYC to make its way completely through the entire jar. It sounds to me that the closest method to what you are describing would be the following: 1. Place properly prepared grain in the bottom of a grow bag . Place properly prepared bulk substrate on top of the grain. Use whatever ratio of grain to bulk you prefer. 2. Sterilize the bag/bags. 3. Inoculate the grain within the bag/bags through a self healing inoculation port. 4. Allow the grain to become 25% colonized then by hand mix the grain that's on the bottom of the bags. 5. Allow the grain to become 100% colonized then mix the entire bag and leave until 100% colonized. 6. Once the bags are 100% colonized you can fruit right inside of the bags.
