3 gal rubbermaid tub
    #2479762 - 03/29/04 02:29 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

My friend bought two rubbermaid 3 gallon tubs. They are green and roughly measure 13x9x9. He wants to make self contained casings out of these, and I was looking for a thread I couldnt find to show him. I was hoping all of you could direct me to it. It was a cardboard box lined with trash bags and had a shitload of shroomies growin outa it. If you could direct me to this tek, give me ideas, or anything usefull please help him. He is going to use 12 fully colonized jars of wbs. Thanks...

well just leave a few inches from the top of the substrate to the top of the tuppeware...then cover with plstic bag with a few holes in it...this acts like a humidity tent or a self contained chamber.

Would it be a better idea to cut a hole in the lid and put plexiglass ontop to let light through??? How would they get light with a trash bag on top. Also, what purpose do the holes serve, I would imagine that you wouldnt want to put holes in it to increase humidity. Another question i had was that he was planning to only have about 4 total inches of lower casing/ substrate/ and top casing layer, leaving plenty of room for the shroomies to grow. What do you think?

they will get enough light from the 3-5 fannings a day. The holes are for some air exchange....it will be humid enough in that little space....
