IS this the perfect bulk container?
    #2872876 - 07/09/04 02:49 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

The other day my friend was in her local dept store and stumbled upon what she thought may be the best bulk Container she has seen thus far. Its the biggest blue one. The one that was in the store was completely opaque black and no light gets through anywhere but the lid.

Her question is this: The depth is 11 inches deep, so with 4-6 inches of bulk substrate crammed in there, there would be only 5-7 inches of room for the shrooms to grow vertically. Do you think this will be a problem?

BTW they are ~$10 where she saw them. They are ~46.5 L

I'd go deeper. 11 inches isn't very deep. You want to add 5-10 inches of substrate alone. Then you need to add a casing layer. Finally you need room for your babies to grow.

From what i've read you doen't really ever want to exceed 6 inches of substrate depth.

What are your sentiments on a bottom verm casing layer for bulk?
