Question about bulk
    #4122892 - 05/02/05 12:45 PM (12 years, 29 days ago)

Spawning tonight. I was wondering if after I spawn to compost, what type of plastic should I put over it (as in saran wrap, panters plastic, plastic bag, aluminum foil)?? Does it matter if I just poke holes in there with a knife or do they have to be ROUND holes that are breathable??

Its easier to use thicker plastic, but any will work. 3 mil plastic is a favorite of my friend. She pokes holes in it, then soaks it in H2O2, then covers her bulk substrate with it. :smile: bluhoney

Is it preferable to use just one sheet or would it work to use multipe pieces??

By multiple, do you mean one sheet for each container? If so, yes, cut each sheet the size of your container, poke holes in it, wash in H2O2 and then place individually in each container. Works nicely:) bluhoney

Quick holes in thicker plastic either by melting them...or even quicker...drilling them. Fold the peice up once cut to size as small as you can (like 2 inches by 2 inches) and drill or melt some holes in...open it up and viola..
