Grow box? Need help/advice
    #11370514 - 11/02/09 06:06 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

Ok guys so here's the plan. I'm looking to build a grow box that will be able to hold a good number of casings.

I'm looking to build it out of wood because it's the easiest thing for me to work with, but I'm open to suggestions. I guess I'm looking for some input on whether you think I can get the wood sealed enough to have zero chance of rot or whatnot. Or if you think I should use some different material feel free to let me know.

It's going to have two levels, each with 8 casings. On each level it will have a closed off space for lighting. I'll try and draw up some blueprints for reference. Going to be providing FAE via a Cool Mist humidifier as well as an Ultrasonic humidifier. Will probably add in a HEPA filtered aquarium air pump setup just to make sure they're getting plenty of air.

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

Right, inside the box would be sealed with this stuff that the guy at Home Depot showed me. I just want to like make sure it will be able to withstand that much humidity for that long.

I'd seal it, then cote it with a ton of Kills primer, just to make sure.  Or, as another option, just use plastic sheeting on the inside, and find a way to seal it off completely from the wood.
