Need advice on size of casing container
    #2235441 - 01/11/04 10:10 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I was thinking of using those aluminum containers found at grocery stores and covering them suran wrap for my casing container. I was planning on putting a bottom layer of vermiculite and then breaking apart 2 cakes (both cakes are coming from half pint jars) then adding another layer of vermiculite to the top. What size aluminum containers should I buy? Gracias for the info -Nick

you want a minimum of 2 inches of substrate, no need for a bottom layer. Just put like a 1/2 inch layer on top of the substrate . Also I am praying that your real name is not Nick.

use a bottom layer,they act as a water reserve and result in better flushes,and only use a quater inch top layer.for two cakes you will only need small containers.i'd suggest no more than 6x6 inches and about three inches deep,always go for depth over surface area with small casing.
