tyvek in the bottom of my SG FC?
    #11392978 - 11/05/09 08:27 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

I don't know if I just got a bag of really fine Perlite or what, but I'm constantly losing it out the bottom of my SG FC.  Have 1/4" holes in the bottom (maybe I'll go with something smaller next time?), but in the meantime, my question is whether I can't just put a layer of tyvek in the bottom of the FC before I add the Perlite?  I don't think it restricts air flow, but what do I know--I'm a noob.

:pm: me if you have questions about lasers

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.

Just cover a small portion of the hole with it, no need to cover the entire hole.

I have probably 50 holes in the bottom of the tub--what I'm thinking is to cut a piece of tyvec the same size as the bottom of the tub and just lay it in b4 the perlite.  Polyester's a good idea--what did you use?  Guess I could cut up my old bowling shirt--my buddies embroidered the name "Ass Muncher" on it so it doesn't really get a lot of use anymore!
