Will a Igloo Playmate cooler work?
    #4082345 - 04/21/05 07:52 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Will this work?
I know it's a bit small and all of the guides for PFtek recommend a styro cooler but I don't really have a whole lot of room to work with. I have one of these and I have a perfect place for it.
The angled top should control condensation easily enough, right?

Will I be committing a tremendous error by staying with what I have, or will it be -extremely- in my favor to get something else?

Also, I've tried to figure it out by searching and reading, but is spraying necessary with perlite? A lot of things I've read on this site talk about spraying but almost everything that talks about perlite never mentions it.

Thank you,

Pras

its small but it will work, these work better and are a staple in mushroom cultivation.
It looks small but it will hold 12-18 cakes or 2 cake pan sized casings

This is good and it doubles as a fruiting chamber and casing once you get past the pf tek. Note the clear window on top for sunlight.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.
