Recommend me some casing trays
    #2324731 - 02/11/04 04:58 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I've been using some of those baking pan style trays (the aluminium ones that are disposable) for growing. After reading some recent threads, it seems as if these trays are somewhat shallow (only 2 inches to 2 and a half inches deep). What kind of trays do you guys use? I've seen Starter's grow logs (in the grow log forum) and he uses what looks like 12 inch rectangular planters (windowbox style for growing flowers). I can't find any that are small enough, or I need a larger rubbermaid container to put them in.

So, what are some good trays that I can use that are at least 4 inches deep?

A self contained rubbermaid like this one



they work great total teriam in its self the only thing is you have to darken the bottom and sides with duct tape or something but works great

This is from the 50/50 casing tek in shroomery:

"We suggest using plastic trays. You can buy ones at Home depot that can be cut and taped to any size you want. Look in the gardening section by the seedling transplanting trays. They are long, black and thin. They can be cut and taped very easily. "

Please, can anyone post a link to order these trays online? I cant find them.

Thanks!!

Haha why do that when you can just get glad? :laugh:...

Plastic tupperware works well for me....I used metal trays...then to my horror they started to rust and i felt like an idiot...Someone told me to put alum. foil over. Sounded like a good idea, but using plastic tupperware is less work and they last....pretty much forever :thumbup:...oh...and they come in like a million different sizes,shapes and depths...

If you're made of money, stainless steel Steam table trays from a restaurant supply house. like $120. 8"deep x 24"long x 12"wide

Lol....I'll stick with glad...Deep enough, wide enough And they're cheaper than dirt :thumbup:

Why spend 100$ or under on only 20 when you can get so many more?...Unless you really needed something solid versus something that isnt...so...solid....But agar's the man :thumbup:

You only need 2- 2 1/2 inches. The glad ones are nice but not big enough...I've recently been using some black trays I found in the gardening section. Like 2 1/2 glad trays sitting side by side...fits right on the shelf hanging off a little but works great. Let me see if I have any pics of some containers I use:

No pics of the big black ones uploaded yet...got a bunch on my camera I need to put up so maybe next time someone asks this (it shouldnt be long :smile:)

why don't you just use black plastic trash bags and cut them to size? After the grow is finished just pick up the bags and throw them out... sustrate and all :-). You also don't need to clean your tubs between grows.

Does anyone see any problems with this idea?

that would work!~

beats the f#ck out of cleaning them up.


I buy large dish pans at the Dollar store for $1.00

and just throw them away after each grow...I got tired of scrubbing pans out.

lolzz
