so here is my first attempt at making a flowhood. i bought 18x24 honeywell furnace filters and built the box to fit. the filters are a little smaller than like 17 7/8x23 3/4 or something close to that. i cut 4- 1x1 at 23 7/8" for the top and 4- 20 7/8" for the sides, you have to add 3" to either the top or the sides for  the 1x1s. each 1x1 is 1 1/2" and you have 2 so you will need to add 3" for the filters to fit. my frame was pretty much 24wx18hx16d. on the left side, top, and bottom of the box i added another 1x1 to the front of the box so that 2 filters can fit. i also measured with width of the 2 filters and put 4 blocks in place to keep the filters from moving. used a piece of lath around the front to keep the filters from falling out. i cut the right side of the plywood about 8" wide so i could take it off and replace the filters, i will tape the crap out of this area to keep it as air tight as possible. i couldn't think of any other way to replace the filters so i cut one side so i could get inside to the filters. the siliconed all of the seams inside and out.

 

i am using a 6" inline fan that i found on ebay for less than $90 with shipping, a tjernlund 530cfm from saveonhvac ebay vendor. i have used one of these in my bloom room for at least 4 years and the baby is still going. great inline for the the price.

 

i am using honeywell 18x24 furnace filters, rated 10fpr and 12merv, i got them at home depot for $17.

 

i am not an hvac guy and i don't know how this will work out, keeping my fingers crossed that it does the job. thoughts or questions?

      The casing keeps moisture in. It's not needed if you can maintain 90-95% rh. If you have occasional problems with your humidifier, casing would be insurance.

        *****Sorry i posted twice, not sure where was the best place**** Hey all, straight to the point.... Got Burma fruiting.  Pins started off brownish and now are tinted blue.  I believe the substrate did dry out a little bit when pins started to appear, but i added a little water on the sides of the tray just so it would wick some water up into it, which it did,  then i poured off the excess, being gentle as i did so.  Humidity(old humidifier) wasn't consistent after casing, now it's stable at 90% Temp stable. (68-72) Growth consistent daily No ugly contams anywhere.   My potential fuck ups: -Forgot plastic lining in tray - casing too thick maybe (50/50 peat/verm only) maybe 1/4in thick, will go thinner next time - over misted to add moisture during early humidity issues. (Slowed down misting after humidity fixed)   Questions:   -Are they still good? -Is it bruising from errors or the potency stuff that is talked about? -do i even need casing next time, since they grew from the uncased sides of the tray? -oh yea, most importantly, are they still good?   Thanks in advance.
