What makes the best casing container?
    #1200662 - 01/08/03 01:08 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Whenever I go out to a store. (ANY store) I always keep an eye out for the uber-casing container... I have yet to find it. My friend is limited to about 14-15 inches square, and would like to keep it under 5 inches deep. What does everyone else on the forum use?

Yeah me too. I save all kinds of containers that are thrown out by my family. Like the sour cream container, margarine, whatever. I just clean it real good and use it as a self contained fruiting chamber for a casing.

Today though I have seen the perfect sized box, it was black with a transparent lid and was just perfect.

Rubbermaid containers kick ass. The small ones can be used in your terrarium and the big ass ones that are about 2 feet X 3 feet X 15 inches deep with your substrate cased in the bottom about 4-5 inches deep make a great terrarium. Tinfoil breadpans seem to decompose when used for casing so if u wanna use them first line them with saran wrap

i never had problems with aluminum pans. i've heard that if used repeatedly they will erode but i just toss the whole thing out when it's done. rubbermaid will work well, but be sure to make it opaque from the top of the casing layer down.

Use dark color sterilite containers (any size. The bigger the better!). They last forever if you don't break them, they're easy to sterilize, they're cheap, and if you case right in them you don't even need a terrarium since the container acts as the casing and the terrarium. All you have to do is cut a hole in the lid and put clear plastic over it to allow light in during the fruiting stage. All around, I think the sterilite and rubbermaid containers are the best.
