Cover up the bottom or not??
    #4136645 - 05/05/05 09:33 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

So I posted some pics of my colonizing substrate. ... high mountain compost. Anyway, I've got a clear container.. should the sides be all taped up yet?? Just need a quick answer.

Thanks

well, as long as you're not planning to fruit in the container they're in and you're only occasionally checking it for colonization, it should be fine... but if it's the fruiting container, then hey... tape it up.

If you're going to fruit in it's own container w/ no casing layer, I wouldn't bother taping the sides and bottom up.

Yeah, that's Dung Brothers compost for you. Just spawn to 10 LBS. in a clear tote and fruit, it really rocked. I believe, but I'm not positive, that HMC is close to or the same as DB recipe.

If you are using TRAYS, simply nest another under the first, with a layer of aluminum foil between the two....as a light barrier. It works PERFECTLY.

Sweet. I taped up the bottom just for shits. If it doesn't make a difference.. I guess I'll never know. Thanks for the help guys.
