Has anyone used the "Poor Man's Terrarium"?
    #2941243 - 07/29/04 05:51 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

This terrarium is made by cutting a section out of a 2 liter coke bottle. This serves two purposes. First, it allows you to put a fully colonized rice cake inside the bottle. The second purpose is it allows the volume of the bottle to be reduced to the point where the moistness of the rice cake can keep it humid.

This is what I'm thinking of doing once my project is underway. (why? - because I'm poor). My question is has anyone used this method and what success/failure did you experience?

As long as the humidity is really high it will work, if your having problem with your pod not being humid enough for the cake than add teeny bit of perlite to the bottem and set the cake on top of a jar lid.

when you think about it almost anything could be used as a fruiting chamber, zip lock bags to cardbored boxes with plastic bags in them.
