Ice cream tubs have been successfully used for casings, which are more or less "smaller bulk" grows. A sock would likely not work, as it wouldn't keep moisture in and wouldn't keep contams out, plus it might get colonized itself (not good). Warm mist isn't ideal because it'd likely change your environmental parameters in the fruiting chamber, which is why cool mist is typically used. I'd say if you have to use straw, go with ice cream bucket casings in a fruiting chamber, and mist for moisture. My .02

That's fine, as I said, the ice cream buckets will work, as long as you put them in a fruiting chamber (like your rubbermaid bin w/perlite and misting.)  The only concern I had was if you're using a container much smaller than 4 gallons (20 Liters-ish) I wouldn't trust it to be its own humidity source.  Bulk works because it can hold enough moisture within itself to produce a good first flush, possibly two, without re-hydrating (although it helps).

Simply put, your idea will work fine.  Best of luck!  :laugh:  :thumbup:

Go with a laundry basket. Even a mini works great and is fool proof from contams.

Also if going bulk I would really recommend moving up to bags
