a box of azures or a crazy idea?
    #403200 - 09/25/01 01:57 AM (17 years, 1 day ago)

Alright, originally i got this idea from watching a show on prisons, ya prisons
anyway my basic idea is to find a large cardboard box, like the ones bushels of fruits and things come in, and another smaller box that fits inside, leaving a couple inches around the edges. i plan to fill the smaller box with colonized woodchips mixed with uncolonized chips, place it in the center of the larger box and fill the space between with a mixture of more colonized/uncolonized chips. then i'll throw some big chunks over the top of it all, and finally top it off with...well the top, maybe with a large hole cut in it or a bunch of smaller ones for the mycelia to creep out of. stick this whole food cell in the ground with about 3 inches of space from ground level for a potting soil casing with leaf little and other such junk you find the forest floor

will it work? i've heard cardboard doesn't contaminate very easily, so i was thinking it might keep out the majority of contams, at least long enough for the azures to take over, while perhaps keeping humidity high in the summer and providing a little insulation for the winter.

i've never used cardboard for anything though so i don't know what to expect, am i setting myself up for contams?

any suggestion, comments, criticisms, histerical laughter that such an idea could even be remotly feasible to anyone with half a brain, are warmly invited

if anythign it provided me with about 15 minutes of entertainment while i was blueprinting plans :) hehe

**histerical laughter**

Contamination isn?t that much of a problem when growing outdoors on woodchips.
In this enviroment nature does its job on keeping contaminants and the species you want in balance. So there is not really a point in putting the whole stuff into a carton box.
Best time to start an outdoor azurescens project is in early spring.

Be very, very careful what you put into that head,
because you will never, ever get it out.

Thats a very good idea, but why mess with the cardboard, go to the store buy one of those big as rubbermaid containers cut it down so its only 6 inches high, fill with your colonized/uncolonized chips sink into ground just an 1/2 inch lower and cover with a thin layer of dirt, or just do lots of those litte plastic potting cups plant them all over the place/ out of sunlight.

Cardboard works great! Colonizes a little slow, like woodchips...but I have had zero problems with contams...this should sork fine. Cheers and good luck.

And that is all the news that's fit to print
