clear rubbermaid tubs?
    #2910708 - 07/21/04 01:01 AM (17 years, 4 months ago)

does the tub which you keep the cakes in need to be completely clear, or would taping a hazy-clear trash bag over the top with no lid work? the rubbermaids i have are dark red and i have been having trouble locating one with a clear top.

I think most people cut holes in their tubs.

From what I've heard, dark tubs with covered holes on top = great, because that way the shroomies know which way is up.

about how big diameter of a hole would you cut in a large tub, and what do you cover it with, cling wrap or a plastic bag?

Well, i wouldn't cut a hole because I'm too big a n00b, but I've seen pictures where the entire lid was a hole minus the rim. I guess that makes the most sense.

and I've seen it covered with plastic and some other stuff...

I'd say just tape/glue/whatever some plastic wrap really tightly over the hole. make sure no openings are there, keep in the humidity :P

It can be difficult to find tubs which have a clear or "translucent" lids, most seem to be stuck in christmas season with variations of green and red.

If you want a more "permanent" solution ot the problem, you can go to Home Depot or Lowes and have a small rectangle of plexiglass cut to the size of whatever light you are using (presumbably a corded 18" flourescent tube). Then you can cut out a smaller rectangle in the lid of your tub and hot glue the peice of plexi-glass in it's place so that it still "seals" well but offers a way for your light to enter from the top of the chamber.

As a quick fix solution to the above outline you can just cut the same rectangle but cover the hole with heavy duty plastic wrap and replace the plastic wrap as needed.

Having light come in from the sides isn't "bad" but your developing mushrooms will grow towards the light, so if you want tall, straight, standing tall soldiers than it's best to have the light coming down from above.

Target seems to be about the only store that I have found which has a small selection of storage bins with "translucent" tops, but even sometimes they will sell out of these and not restock for several weeks, so it can be hit or miss.

opaque means light doesn't penetrate it, like a solid colour.

Yes, but know that any mushrooms you have developing in this tub will grow in the direction of the available light source (ie to the sides).

Brain not functioning well this morning. The term I was after was translucent, not opaque, thanks for pointing that out :smile:.
