The Walmart one comes with four shelves, and the Kmart one does not, I think. The Kmart(Martha Stewart)one is more for storing clothes, and Wally's is for growing plants. I don't know how much the Wallymart one costs, but I found mine at

doityourself.com Juliana Grow Rack

$60 with free shipping. Probably cheaper at Walmart, but I couldn't find any at the stores in my town. They are not stealth packaged, "4 Tier Grow Rack" is emblazoned on the box. But it's for starting seedlings in cold weather, so what the hell.

are people innoculating their bulk substrates while they're in the unit, or do you do it elsewhere? would it serve as a decent hood for keeping out contams during the innoculation process? if not, what methods are you using for preparation of the bulk substrate?

A hood is not required for innoculation of bulk, pasteurization allows enzymes to live which essentially protect the substrate during incubation.

would a tray of damp perlite on the bottom suffice for humidity?

at least for cakes, i know perlite can be quite effective.

I think that would be ideal for me...i will look into one of those.

I asked about that a while back.  Someone told me it may be hard to keep the temp where u want it in there and incubation is better off in a more controled place.

I just use a bigger bin to spawn my trays in. Soon will be moving into my grow chamber :smile: I may just hook up a humidifier on a timer.

Thought id bump this with how im keeping mine humid.
The bubbler wasnt enuff so i placed a reptile heat mat under the water catchment area in the bottom so as to recirculate the dripping condensation.This works much better but i do need to pour fresh water onto the heat mat daily(the mat is protected from water by the use of a black bag taped to the base with the mat under it)Now humiderty is fine and stable around 85% as long as i remeber to top it up.

I just saw in wallyworld(wall mart) the other day that the 4 shelf greenhouse was only 19.99. Was thinking about buying it but not sure if i have enough room in my room. =(

I DIY a 55 gallon PC.Worked great for awhile.(80 quart jars at a time)My old lady left when the PC blew.I still can't understand her leaving since it only took one of her ears off when it blew.I went to bulk after that.

I got the 2 shelf unit at Big Lots for 19.95 US. I've got some oysters fruiting in it as we speak. I humidify with the standard steam humidifier sold by Wallyworld for under 10 dollars. They actually have 2 models under 10 bucks. You have to buy a pretty pricey timer though, because about 10 minutes worth of runtime on the humidifier every 8 hours is all you need. I can walk away from my setup for a month without needing to mist or anything. In fact I never have to mist, just refill the humidifier. I also like the steam type because it adds heat to the setup, since it's all down in a cold basement at about 59 degrees, but it helps trigger the pins. I like it, but the next step was to run with the same idea utilizing 1/2" PVC piping and plastic sheeting sealed with my impulse sealer. I used purloined bread racks, and the piping is a whopping .89 cents for 10 feet. It took 4 10 foot pieces to build the whole thing.
