Wow Seek, awesome job.

I did this exact same thing when I first setup my greenhouse, only problem was my cpu fans kept shorting out because water vapors would screw up yhe electronics. Nice work fixing that up.

It just sits on a stand in the water, Posted Image, if you don't have a stand they make floaters for ponds. Not sure how much they are though.

$10 on ebay, I'd recommend a float if you don't want to use an auto top off

You prob could, as long as it doesn't produce any heat, and you would still want some kind of fan. A fan helps to mix the humid air inside your gh. otherwise you will end up with pooling water in certain areas that would cause problems. Also everything will have to be cleaned or mold will grow. That means any little parts will need to be cleaned as well. That's the main reason I don't use valves and all that.

foggers are good for gilled mushrooms. it basically mists them and the casing for you. I wouldnt use my GH without a fogger, because I dont like to mist and fan.

 

foggers are bad for many other types of mushrooms though

      Got my PE today thanks!

      First time working with a swab based innoculation vector, Agar and LC are not options atm, are they any methods i could use besides making a single Grain jar then doing G2G?

      All that stuff can be found in the salt water fish section. You would have to read what is used in the ph adjust kit.

      U should definitely not have any snakes calling over ur sub. I once read that diatonicmaceous earth would scratch reptiles belly plates & cause them to dehydrate. That's what it said.lol   Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Read my teks. None of them use gypsum at all. Then look at the results. I'm positive I can grow many species of mushrooms. Not just cubes. It can definitely be skipped! Although you do need to adjust pH with most bulk substrates. You can use gypsum to adjust pH, I just prefer using calcium hydroxide for that since it instantly adjusts pH. Gypsum is a pH buffer meaning it helps keep pH stable, but this is not effective against mycelium, as mycelium does excrete acidic enzymes as it decomposes the substrate. But because it is a buffer it doesn't really increase pH as much as calcium hydroxide will. It more so just keeps it steady in dirt.
