You'd be better off spawing the grain into a bulk substrate like dung or straw.

If you want to case the grain straight, you would want to add about 25% vermeculite to keep it a little bit more hydrated. Then you could use a larger container.

A quart, well, something like 6"X4"X2" would probably work. I dont know, its kind of hard. Just find something that would work for you :smile: And, if the container is clear, make sure you tape the sides with duct tape.

I used the box my hepa filter came in, lined with the bag i got when i bought it...kinda thin layer of substrate tho, only like an inch.

It's up to you -- I use 1/4" of substrate, but most people prefer like 1 inch or more. I get really good flushes with 1/4" though.

Well, i didn't even bother with much on this one..just tried to get the cracked corn broken up well enough to lay semi-flat, added like a quarter of the volume of wetted verm, then spread about the same amount of verm as substrate on the top. I've got strong growth in at least20% of the casing surface, but i'm a tad bit worried i may have put a bit to much into the casing layer. Oh well...as soon as i get 50 % i'ma patch case, wait for a bit of evening-out growth, then fruit. Hell, i may just fruit it now...was curious as to wether or not the cc would function as a viable standalone substrate. We'll see.
