Lining casing containers with plastic
    #3525962 - 12/21/04 12:35 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I've seen this in many pictures on this site. Most of the time these pics have beautiful looking flushes. What is the purpose of lining casing containers with plastic?

Easy clean up. After 6 weeks or so of sitting in there the myc eats into it well. And you cant have any residue left over the next time you fill it or it could contam easier. Fresh plastic bags right off the roll are pretty sterile though. Doesnt have to be done but cleanup can take some time when working with more then a few dozen (or less if larger) casing containers.

Tin foil works too but myc can eat threw thin stuff.

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)

I think it also keeps light from making mushrooms form on the sides of the casing (if your using clearish plastic tubs) which could rot but i may be wrong.
