Brf cake to bulk question
    #27144431 - 01/12/21 08:47 PM (13 days, 23 hours ago)

Hey guys. I had a bit of a syringe left so I made up 2 half pint jars.

I want to shred these 2 to a CV substrate.  I know it's a small amount of spawn , but it's really how I want to do these 2 jars.

I'll have 1 pint of spawn so add that to 1 quart of substrate? Maybe 1.5? Is this correct?

What size container would be best? The smallest tub I see at Walmart is 6qt. Seems too big.

Like I said , I know it's not a lot , but it's what I want to do , and I know it can be done , I just dont see any mention of tub size ever.

2 half pints into a 6qt shoebox would work. I’ve done it before. It’s not ideal, but can work. I’d do a quart of CV mixed with your spawn, then add a top layer.

you can grow in anything. don't get too hung up on a certain wallmart model.
I've grown in icecream containers, glasses, bowls, ...
just find something that fits your substrate volume.

:whathesaid: I've grown in gallon juice containers and those plastic Chinese food containers. As long as you have a manner in keeping humidity and a way to have FAE you'll be good. Add a top layer at spawning, I always recommend one when starting out, I run a top layer every time.

Thanks for the answers guys . Some of those brf cake grows are amazing !

What is the top substrate layer for? I would put some on top of the CV + spawn mix? About how much?

How come those grows dont need a black trash bag liner or a lid?

I usually put an extra layer of coir that is somewhere around 1/4" - 1/2" thick on top. It just help keeps nice surface conditions.

A liner can be clear. The main purpose of a liner is to shrink with the sub. The liner sticks to the sub which prevents a gap forming between the sub and the tub. The gap can cause side pins as it could have a nicer micro climate than the surface. However, if your surface conditions are good than side pinning will be reduced. Also side shrooms are still edible :wink:

I did keep a bit of plastic over the top of the fish bowl and the bottle had some micro pore tape over the holes. But the bottle probably didn't need it. It's really a case of your ambient humidity. If you live somewhere dry you'll need a lid more than if you live somewhere humid.
