How do you water bulk substrate?
    #3612601 - 01/11/05 02:24 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I use laundry baskets filled with mulch. during the beginning of each flush the substrate gets dry and hard. (even with high humidity) i poke holes in the top so water will penetrate the mulch.

is there a better way to do this?

Maybe also the kind of systems that are used for watering indoor plants when being on holidays would work ?
(Or a bottle of water upside down in the substrate :grin: )

Not really. I have seen a tek where someone has used similar but smaller baskets for growing active mushrooms at mycotopia ...
