New container idea for bulk?
    #3472460 - 12/09/04 09:11 PM (12 years, 9 hours ago)

My mom asked me today if I wanted an plastic crate she was throwing away, and I immediately began to think what I could do with it. one idea came to mind: BULK GROW TEK. I don't know if this has been done this way before, I tried searching the boards, but there were too many posts. So I'll just post my thoughts anyways, and you guys can tell me what you think.

Take a plastic crate, and cover the bottom inside with relatively fine wire or plastic mesh(since the holes on these things are rather large). That, or layer the bottom with some pasteurized straw. I don't know, use whatever will work to keep the substrate from falling through. Then, wrap the sides with Tyvek And seal around the edges/seams with duct tape. Fill with substrate... spawn... case... and put crate on top of a bed of perlite for humidification. That is, if it even needs it. I have heard that bulk casings usually give off enough humidity to keep themselves at the right parameters without too much additional humidification. This part can also be toyed with. Finally, initiate fruiting and allow for massive flushes(at least I'm hoping that's what this will accomplish).

The idea would be that this would allow for a combination of maximum hydration and aeration, as we all know that's what mushrooms love. As I have already said, I don't know if this would work so please post your thoughts on my "tek". Also let me know if I'm ripping off anyone's ideas. If I am, I apologize. I realize there's always arguments on here between people claiming they invented something new, and I don't want to take credit for someone else's work.

If it sounds to you like it might work and seems like a pretty good idea, then I suggest you try it. I would, but I can't. I don't see why it wouldn't work, anyways. :shrug:

That laundry basket tek looks crazy. I bet the yields off that are better than off a regular rubbermaid bulk, huh?

Someone try what.

Check out the bulk neglect report so you can see how cardboard boxes can be used as terrariums.

Then check out ur local moving/shipping supply store and look for their super huge boxes, they run about $5 a pop. I got mine for $6.50 ea and they are 3' cubes. That's 9 square feet with PLENTY of head room, enough even for the double tub principles.

You aren't going to find 9 square feet anywhere in the rubbermaid world. The best I could find was 6.12 sq ft coming from those 50 gal long totes, which are $15 a pop.

With 9 square feet of bulk, you should easily pull a pound of shrooms out of this box.

anyway, that's MY new container idea for bulk.
