which would you recommend?
    #3307303 - 11/02/04 12:54 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

I have read that for bulk growing it should be done in buckets. I was wondering could it also be done in rubbermaid containers. I was thinking about using shoe box size rubbermaidds for a bulk grow, but then i read that the teks call for using buckets (i am thinking around hte 5 gallon size). i was wondering which one you more experienced growers would use. and do my sizes sound good for optimal flushes. i also plan on using approximately 5 lbs compost per bucket or rubbermaid.

it doesn't matter, a container is a container. as long as it fits and you can cover it. have you grown before? it sounds like you havent. Diving into bulk is just going to mess you up.

yes i have grown before. i have just done casings, and i have gotten good output from those. i am just wondering if there is a reason that buckets are recomended over rubbermaids. i was thinking that maybe you could get a deeper substrate, but then the surface area wouldnt be as much for actual grow space. so to answer your question yes i have grown before, and if i am correct this is a place where i can ask questions.

As you will see there are countless bulk teks. I have even seen laundry baskets used. I would highly, highly recommend EatUAlive's tek for bulk beginnners. TD didn't have any experience with bulk, but if things keep going how they're going he'll be harvesting his first bulk in a week and a half.

Here's the thread:
http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...4a316707572efd5

The best part is that it's cheap, takes little to no care, and has very high yeilds. Also, all the materials are very VERY easy to find, you can get EVERYTHING by going to a Michaels (Arts and Crafts), a Grocery Store, a Hardware Store and a Pet Store.

GL bro!!!!
