12 jars in a 50 quart tub?
    #3654736 - 01/20/05 07:30 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I am currently debating with my "Grow-Mate" who believes putting 12 substrate jars in a 50 quart rubbermaid tub will be sufficient space for them to grow. I on the other had am running with the theory that it will only grow big in big space, like plants in small pots or animals in small cages. Would six jars be more sufficient than 12? ....and just for the record, Wouldn't 12 Jars produce alot of Co2?

my cakes are spaced out about 2 inches, i wouldn't want to get much closer than that. but i don't think CO2 is a problem unless you can't fan or get an automatic system going with an air pump and bubbling wand.

12 PF tek jars? Putting them 4 by 3...cake like 3 inches across plus 2 inches on each side your talking 7 inches per cake optimal? Thats a bin like 28"x21"...then you'll need like 3-4 inches height for perilite, hydroton, 3 inches high for cakes and like 4-5 for mushrooms and you got like 12-14inches high optimal? Some sort of dimntions like that is what I'd look for...that leaves lots of room for co2 buildup if your manually fanning. Automated system would mean co2 is nothing to worry about either way though.

You surly could fit them in a smaller area but I definatly think if you give them more room to grow, they'll grow better.

You don't get bonsai mushrooms by growing in a small volume. My first grow was in a jar of sorts. The kids were confused by the light from all over. They pushed against the glass all around, but still made daddy proud.

Don't panic!

I've seen a friend's setup that consists of the exact same thing and it works perfectly for him. You'll be fine.
