WARNING about rubbermaids.
    #1390641 - 03/19/03 08:44 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

ok, be warned that if you are using blue " Roughneck " rubbermaids, you want to double them up, or line them with foil, or paint them. wrap them in duct tape... whatever

because light gets thru them and they will pin and fruit from the sides...

A casing was picked last night, and while trying to remove small shrooms from the sides with tweesers, giving up, it was flipped over and removed form the container as a cake..... and lo and behold.

PINS PINS> huge mushrooms, flat asses, dozens of them. covering the entire surface of a 2 gal cake.

Had i not seen and removed them, they would have rotted and spoiled a nice casing.

It's now sitting on a lid a-la-pf style. i hope this works ok..

so.. FYI..

Well i guarantee you the casing was not too dry.. i'm sure of this!!!

When they were baught, i looked inside them and could not see any light, either i was stoned as usual, or a few javex bleaches made them loose colour.

but without a casing layer, they seem fine, the ones with a casing layer have this problem more pronounced.

Logic says that the casing layer does a better job at blocking light than the container... so this is were the pins will sprout!

so. peeps, take note.

Did you have a lot of moisture inside of the bins while colonizing. This guy I know has quite a bit of condensation in his (some of which is dripping on the myc), and was hoping it wouldn't be a problem. When he spawned the poo it seemed to have the right amount of moisture (i.e., when squeezed only a couple of drops would fall). Just wondering. Thanks.

Hmm, Ive heard of people using these containers without any problems. It might have something to do with the intensity of the light. If its really bright, I guess it could get through the sides... If you just have a normal lamp near your containers, I wouldnt think it would be strong enough to penetrate.

Hold any plastic bin, tub or tray up to a bright light & check to see if light pass's through it. If you have no choice, line them with black plastic. 6T

CHE: The water that dripped on your casing is ok, it was in the casing to begin with but after sitting still a bit, water evaporates and condenses off the lid, falls back in, and gets re-absorbed. this is not a problem. ( unless your casing is rotting, in wich case you had too much water to begin with ).
.....

The light,, well only what comes thru the window, nothing more nothing less. and it's the shaded part of the house the entire day. so it's indirect light only.

If i hold the container up to the light, i can see a blue hue thru it.. so yes, they will be lined from now on.. I coud swear i've seend pics from 6T using the same ones.
