Outdoor questions...
    #1454851 - 04/13/03 05:15 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I have recently found a great place (I think..) to grow some cubes outdoors. It's an old flower box, about 5' long, 2' wide, and 3' deep. So we dug it out and cleaned it up, innoculated 10 quart jars WBS with creeper. So here go the questions...

1. Are there any special precautions I should take with cleaning it out?

2. The box didn't drian well at all, there is about 6" of gravel at the bottom, will this suffice with drainage? Or should I use some mason bits to drill some drainage holes?

3. What should I use as a bottom layer? Some kind of potting mix?

4. And finaly...a big noob mistake. When I innoculated my jars, I covered them with tin foil, leaving them with no air exchange. Should I wait for them to show some colonization before changing the lids to tyvek?

Sorry to make this so long winded, just wanted to be sure I get the answers to all my questions. Also, I'm thinking of turning this into a grow log so I can get some step by step help from all you pros out there.

Wet perlite as a bottom layer in an outdoor bed? Thats the first time I've heard of that approach.

it wasnt outdoor, but the results were huge indoors with just pf tek. you tell me whether it will work outside or not, but it definetely helps more than the 50/50 or straight verm on teh bottom.

1. definitely clean out any trace of chemicals.
2. it needs to be able to drain, but also to suck up water from the ground it sits on. why not knock the bottom out, then bury this flower box (then grow somewhere else :laugh:) no - if you really want to use this flower box, ensure good drainage.
3. mother nature's earth.
4. tinfoil allows plenty air exchange. do not take the lids off under any circumstances until fully colonised.
