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.

      Fungi is right man. From what I have seen so far in this thread I can tell you haven't done your homework. Because of this you are missing very very important steps. Go to the tek section of the forum and read the dub tub tek, the z-tub tek, monotub tek and really any other tek that you see from MushZombie. Specifically you need to read the 6qt dubtub tek it's the most in depth and thorough tek that teaches everything from start to finish. Even if you don't plan on actually doing a 6qt dubtub you still need to read this tek. I'm sure me and fungi both probably read this tek like 10 times. And of course once you get into the reading, pick a tek and stick to it 100% for your first several grows. My recommendation is to not try the Monotub. I tried it as one of my first ones and it failed miserably, hell I'm almost a year in and only have 50% chance with monotubs.

      So to summarize, do your homework from what has been written specifically for new growers doing so will help you dramatically.

      Did you say your doing them 2 and 3 times a week? If so thats the issue. The body builds up a tolerance to shrooms after just one dose and it takes 7-14 days for that tolerance to reset.

      Boooo-rrrriiiinggg.. lol so you think it’s not worth the trouble huh? I picked up wbs and jiffy today too, I got a 23 qt presto coming to my door tomorrow and myco bags coming on Sunday. So yea, I’m switching earlier than I thought I would.. I’m all in baby!! So even for penis envy you think it’s better just to fruit them as cakes?
    • Mush Zombie
      Just fruit the cakes as cakes. Spawn grain spawn to bulk sub.
