Amazon Shop: Perlite, Vermiculite

is water\waste collecting at the bottom of a casing a possible problem?

i've seen some say that holes should be drilled in the bottom of a casing tray to allow it do drain.

and i was thinking... maybe a few holes punched in the bottom, and a thin layer of perlite at the bottom, would help things. it'd drain excess water and wastes, that's for sure... what do you guys think about this?

I think alot of casing teks call for a layer of verm under the substrate for this sort of thing. If you want to drill holes in your tray you should use two clear trays. One tray is spray painted black or is otherwise opaque and has no holes. The other is left transparent and holes are drilled into it. The transparent tray with the holes is put into the painted tray without holes. Do you see where I'm going with this? This is also good to be able to check when your substrate is fully colonized. Lets say you are using spawn to innoculate some cowpoop/straw. If you do this, then you can check the substrate to see when it is fully colonized by lifting the first transparent tray out of the dark opaque one. Assuming you sprayed it with lysol or otherwise disinfected both trays, this should help reduce contams from getting into those holes.
