Mini SGFC
    #14441510 - 05/12/11 08:41 PM (10 years, 8 days ago)



would this work as a sgfc? i have a water bottle that looks like that but its wider [ more of a rectangle shape ] and is about 1 foot tall. i cut it in half and followed a pop bottle tek. Would it be better to drill holes on every side top and bottom to make it similar to a sgfc? Im gonna be putting an inch or two of perlite at the bottom as there is only gonna be 1-2 cakes fruiting at a time.

2-3" of perlite might work better

thanks for the replys, i needed a conformation on this

the more perlite i have the less room for fruiting. i cut it in half and put the two piecies together so its really only 8-9 inches tall now. Ill still try to put 2-3 inches tho.

Does perlite tend to fall through the holes in a sgfc? Also do sgfc's leak water ?

Falling perlite shouldn't be a problem, same with water.  Any perlite or water thats going to come out of it will happen within the first hour of putting the perlite in the tub(container.)

As far as your room goes just make sure itll hit 90+% rh,  No point in having a 2 foot tall container if you cant grow a 1 inch mushy

Should work providing you get the humidity/ait flow right.

I've fashioned a 2 litre icecream tub + Plastic bottle SGFC for a friend as a gift after reading about someone else doing it here :smile:

Should work. I like the tall cylindrical pretzel containers for single cake fruiting. Drill holes like a regular shotgun or as close as possible.

The big barrel of pretzels might fit like 4 cakes, have yet to try it tho.

Try making a hinge out of duct tape instead of just mashing the pieces together, or in the case of a 2liter FC alot of people put the "lid" on upsidedown, which intrudes into the growing area. A hinged taped lid eliminates this. Just make sure u dont knock the thing over when u flip it open to mist/fan.

You could try one of these and a couple holes for GE/AE, I have heard good and bad about them. I have not tried mine yet.
