Woohoo, time to start! But a few questions.
    #11358222 - 10/31/09 05:18 PM (8 years, 19 days ago)

Just got my spores.  I was planning on using the glass cup / tinfoil lid because I'm cheap as hell, but are there any drawbacks to this method?

Also, what's a good FC setup for a beginner?  I was thinking of just using a large plastic bin, but it appears there's lots of setups for them.  Can someone link me to a cheap, easy setup with detailed instructions?  There's alot of them posted here, but most of them assume that the grower already knows what they're doing, which I really do not.

I'm not worried about it being automated.  I'm home alot, so fanning/misting however much I need isn't a problem.  Thanks!

Really that's it?  Doesn't need anything else?  I was under the assumption that there needed to be more done to the box with fancy airstones and pumps and whatnot. 

So I should be able to keep it at proper humidity without any more fancy supplies?

Oh no, I was aware of the perlite and such.  Just every other setup instructions I see seem to have some sort of pump or something, like the one in your pic feelfunny.  Thanks for the help guys!

Pumps, which I did not want to spend money on.  That was my main reason for making the thread :P
