      How does a flowhood work with mushroom growing?

      This model is a horizontal flowhood which creates a low velocity air flow that blows toward you. This air is super filtered and is 99.99% sterile. It can be used in any environment for many different things. The sterile moving air allows you to work in the space and open up substrate jars, bags, transfers, make spore syringes, work with agar plates and much more. If you ever experienced mold from inoculations, this will eliminate that.

      Laminar flow hood

      This flow hood is phenomenal. It arrived on time, undamaged and so far I haven't had one contaminated jar. It's cheaper then most prebulit flow hoods as well so you're getting your moneys worth.

      First trial success!

      I have been looking for a flow-hood for a month now trying to not break my bank and spend $500 or more. I have seen plenty of videos on how to make my own, but I dont have the power tools and time to deal with the headache of trying to cut all this lumber up. I have been plagued with mold in my still air box and really want to get into agar and cloning. I was slightly worried that this size would be too small to do all the stuff I wanted but actually there is plenty of room! In reality you are only working with a few things at once and all that extra space is honestly not needed. I'm super happy with my first trial and the best part is I am finally MOLD FREE!!

      Great Product; Outstanding Customer Service

      • Plug and Play
      • Solid
      • Easy to Transport
      • Great Customer Service
      I had mechanical issues with my first hood when it arrived. I left Bonsai a message late Sunday and received a return call the next morning. After talking through the issue, they sent me a shipping slip to return the first hood and built me a new replacement. I was contacted several times throughout the process and was even sent photos of the hood as it was being built and tested. Overall their customer service was incredibly professional and a pleasure to work with.

      The new hood arrived two days ago and works like a charm. I probably have 12 hours of run time on it and couldn't be happier. Very sturdy, easy to transport, and a great deal at the price. I would happily recommend this product to any hobbiest looking to make the leap from still air box to flow hood without breaking the bank.

      This thing works perfectly and is the perfect price if you don't want to build one! I'm so glad Midwest started carrying it!!

      Love it!

      You guys hit a home run on this baby! Awesome FlowHood! Exactly what I have been looking for! I attempted to build my own but I didnt have a tool shop to assemble all the parts and make all these cuts in 3/4" plywood. For this price why would anyone build one??? Thank you guys again!!! 5**** PLUS!!!!
