Need help with a box.
    #3288636 - 10/28/04 12:15 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Would just a cardboard box with a plastic liner work for a good box? I have thought about trying this, but did not have any imput from anyone. I am extremely broke at this time and am willing to try just about anything to get these babies to grow.

There once was a man from Matrass, whose balls were made of fine brass. And in stormy weather, they both clanged together. And sparks flew out of his ass!

id imagine if you used a box youd be misting it daily . even if you had the liner done so well it was airtight is still imagine 1 way or another the cardboard box would get soggy somehow. My suggestion would be drive/walk around town on garbage pickup day. Im sure youll find somthing suitable or somthing you can modify as a fruiting tank. Almost everyweek i see fishtanks being tossed around here..
Maybe its jsut around here...
IF you want to be a bad littel drug grower. you could always snag on of those orange lidded rubbermaid type plastic boxes people put recyclables out in. lol

I've seen pictures of casings in cardboard boxes in the grow logs. It seems to me that people were using sheet plastic for lining (the relatively thick kind) Get a big piece that can line all the way around your box, inside and out. Layer it twice or more.

Only do the above if you refuse to try what was suggested by alisia, as a non-degradeable container would be much better.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
