I saw the link about the oyster mushrooms the one where they hang the plastic bag logs up in the air. And I got to thinking maybe I could do something similar only changing a few things. And basically I am tired of sterlite containers so I am trying to find a way that saves space

Ok I will run this by you guys to see what you think and maybe get some feed back as how to maybe improve upon it. I know this has probably been done before in some way but oh well

I plan on trying this out so I will let you know how it goes when it is finished

First I will be using pie tins. I will lay out colonized grain into the pie tins let the mycellium recover for a day then case it in 50% verm and 50% store bought manure based compost with a dash of pickling lime. Then put the casing back into incubator and do the normal misting ritual. When first signs of mycellium poke through I will patch and put into fruiting container.

Fruiting container: This is where the plastics bags come into play. I was planning on using ordinary white kitchen trash bags unless otherwise advised not to. I plan on making a simply wire frame than will serve two purposes (1) provide a stable place to sit the pie tin while in the bag and (2) to keep the condensation from running onto the casing.

I plan on hanging these bags from a clothes line or even better one of those extendable shower curtain rods. I would keep the bags closed at the top with the twisty ties that come with the trash bags. As far as what to hang the bags with I think will be using what ever I find at the store tomorrow thats looks sufficient.

so its a casing inside of a bag instead of a container? Sounds like a pain in the ass, with hanging and misting and fanning and reaching down in there to crop. Sounds pretty unstable to. Keep revising though, I like new ideas.

I was wondering about that myself. You think the humidity will be a bitch in the bag? My only other alternative would be an old fridge a buddy of mine is about to throw out cause my main purpose in this is to save space (so tired of sterilite containers everywhere)

Yes, I hear you on the containers. I've seen an alternative of these hang up bags. I forget what they are called, I'm always looking at too many things at once to remember what I saw where. But I think its supposed to be a portable closet. I'm sure you've seen it. You can zip it up in the front. Ive seen ppl use these and make racks inside. They generally connected some type of humidifier to it. But u have to be careful on what 'closet' you buy, some are made of materials that breath too much. Then again this probably isnt the cheapest alternative.

There is no way to really Save space. I built myself a shelving system, where I can put a series of casing containers in, hook them up straight to a humidifier and air exchange. If you wanted to get rid of containers all together, youd probably have to dedicate a whole room to this, so you could just have a bunch of containers sitting around... uhh fuck it.. just do it outside.  :grin:

Thats my prob the room is small and not everything can fit into the room so I want to use just this one small room for everthing. I only grow enough to keep me and my buddys buzzed a couple times a month (they think i get them from an old college roomate lol) so I dont need a whole lot of space. I just want to make good use of the space I do have and sterilite containers arent cutting it. Now that I think about it I might just go get that old fridge and turn the top part which used to be the freezer into an incubator and the bottom part into a fruiting chamber then I would have everything in one place
