kiddie pool croping container
    #2268501 - 01/24/04 04:49 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

looking for some opinions about this idea. take a kiddie pool (and poke small holes in the bottom??).put 5 gallon bucket with 1/4 holes drilled all the way around 6 inches from bottom in the center of pool. fill bucket with a couple inches of moist perliteand salt h2o2... fill doughnut shaped hole with spawn, case then cover the whole thing with plastic. since the top of the bucket is covered with plastic moisture can only escape out holes into fruiting area. also could you put a bag of ice in the 5 gallon bucket to induce fruiting. any comment would be helpfull thanks for taking the time to read this.

i think u would be good if u just filled the pool with your bulk + ton of spawn, and made the top of the pool air tight, then cased that w/ coir+verm and kept the casing surface nice and moist. but ive never tried anything remotely similar to this, so im talking out of my ass. the perilite bucket idea might work better if u had a fan blowin in the bucket, but without good circulation i dont think the perilite would be doing much better then keeping the casing misted.

I'd say you could skip casing if preferred. I probably would the first time around. That thing would produce plenty of humidity on its own if it was contained in a tent. The opening around the lower perimeter of the tent would allow for co2 to escape and the heat produced from the substrate would cause the water vapor to rise(maybe?) and collect in the tent. Am I wrong? Somewhat like a straw log but more like a straw patty! What type of substrate were you considering using? I hope you try it. If I had a place to do it I'd be on it in a heartbeat. Let us know what you decide!

I've got a 14 quart casing in a 150L r-maid right now, colonized, cased, patched and waiting for pins,

I simply placed a transparent garbage bag over the top of the bin loosely fit, and check on it every other day....

no reason why this would not work.

my advise is to not make the casing too deep.. without some kind of bottom ventilation method.. like 4 inches max..

ive heard its possible to get 28g dry from 3 flushes off a cased quart jar of rye in a perilite bucket faned regularly.

and ive also heard millet is even better. im having trouble finding the un-hulled kind though =(

If you want to do a large scale grow make a shelf system with about 18" shelf spacing and do multiple "bulk neglect" style grows using wine boxes or milk cartons (bulk faq's). Get some insulation boards (home depot) and Make the top shelf an incubator box to fit one shelfs worth of boxes and some spawn jars for incubation. In a 2x3'footprint with 4 fruiting shelfs you could get 2 lbs a flush, ($4-6k value) and thats more then you can probably move unless if you have connections. Every week change out the spent shelfs boxes with the ones you have prepped in the incubator.

Dont get too crazy with bulk grows. Get a few flushes then give it a rest for a few months. Too much shrooms can be bad if the same buyers keep using and also you dont want any heat. If your growing in bulk only sell in bulk (by lbs) to one or two people. And never talk about it or tell that your growing them to the buyers, just say you bought them.

O ok, i am an idiot, i always thought so...
Chill out with the name calling and when you do name call make it someting that fits the person or something funny like an assmonkey.

So how do you think shrooms get on the street? Someone has to do it. And how am i going to get busted telling someone how to do a bulk neglect grow, that already has a FAQ with pics of a guy growing about 5 lbs try total out of the 3 boxed he showed, he could have easily had more. With my project, i can assure you that some will be sold, it makes my time worth while and gives e some extra cash. There are much legaly worse things then growing a pound or two of mush, like a few kilos of outdoor weed :laugh:

Gr0wer, I think I'm the person that you refer to regarding the bulk neglect report and the pics and stuff. Some things need to be laid out straightforward.

The scale of my growing increased dramatically around the time of the bulk neglect grows. It increased only because I reached a point in my life where I knew I couldn't continue growing, or fucking with the black market at all anymore. One last bang if you will. It was done for fun. It was done for karma. It was done for the OMC and the real world MC. It was certainly not for money.

Everyone should be aware that psychedelics have a different subculture from most drugs, including a large contingent of people who are very much opposed to drug dealer capitalism. These people are mostly loose groups of friends, growers, chemists etc. The general rule of thumb is to not charge for something that should be free.

The large scale of my last grows was an investment in karma, not money. The fruits were not sold, but rather given to the community where they were enjoyed free of charge by many.

The karma paid off. I don't have to worry about keeping drugs in my house. Whatever I want, is simply given to me, whenever I want it. I don't have to worry about the drug dealers, the risk of incarceration, nothing. I just show up, have fun, and go home clean as a whistle. Not only am I free from the risks of the street, I am free of paranoia.

Of course shrooms get on the street by people selling them. But that doesn't mean that's how things should be. Shrooms shouldn't be on the street with coke and crack and smack and all that bullshit. Shrooms should be on the farms, at the shows, in the campgrounds. They should not be tainted with the filth of the street, they should be spread with the love of a community.

Perhaps you would consider cultivating towards a positive goal for all rather than a short term buck for yourself? I think that you should at least give it your consideration, seeing as how you've benefitted from my contribution. I do not like the idea of my posts contributing to drug dealer capitalism.

Give it a try, your friends and your karma will thank you.

That being said, back to topic. A casing the size of a kiddie pool shouldn't require a sealed environment, or fancy rigging. A humidifier in the room should keep the humidity around 75%, and it wouldn't need to be run long as the huge casing itself will give off a lot of moisture. Ice would not be necessary as temp drops are not needed for cubensis (the fact that you ask about this leads me to think that you might be daydreaming beyond your experience level though).

That being said, I don't think there is any benefit in using a kiddie pool. I think other ways would be easier, less trouble and more efficient. Straw logs, multiple mortar tub trays etc come to mind.
