Cubes Outdoors in a flower pot?
    #4191078 - 05/18/05 03:23 PM (12 years, 9 days ago)

I am getting ready to have about 2-3 quarts of colonized WBS.  I have an outdoor bed of WBS spawned to poo right now, but some animal keeps digging at it. :frown:  It is still growing myc. on the poo, so it could fruit in a couple weeks if im lucky.  Anyway, i was wanting to do my next bed in a flower pot.  Just fill the pot with some poo/spawn mix.  Then cover with a thin layer of potting soil and straw.  Maybe throw some grass seed on top too.  Keep the pot in a shady spot, probably in some tall grass under some trees.  Would this work just as good as digging a hole in the ground?

growing in a pot kind of seems to defeat the reasoning of growing outside, to grow bulk. it seems to me you might as well be casing inside if you're gonna grow in pots. as far as wether or not it will work? i dont know, i think the grass seed would be good.

in my opinion(I've never done this before) but i think it could be done. the species is a photo sensitive one so it should grow out of the top of the pot but, like the post above i think that if you are going to do something outdoors, no pot should be used (unless your smokein' it). personally i would just dig the damn whole and spawn it with the wbs and have a jumbo harvest.

I can't grow indoors, because of my current living situation. And like i said i want to try something besides digging into the ground if possible, because some animal keeps digging up my current bed.

I'm thinking about using a couple 5 gallon buckets with holes drilled in the bottom for drainage. Only filling them up about 1/2 way or so with spawn/poo though.

Why don't you try to keep them away. Get a some chicken wire and put it around your plot. If it is insects get some DE.

sounds like it will work to me. i have a similar problem with an animal, but i am leaving mine there. a nice little frog has made a little hole in the side of my bed. leaving him alone hell i figure he will keep any bugs away. i have used two window well covers taped together like a mini greenhouse so my dog will stay out of it. works good so far. just prop it up a couple of hours a day to allow good air flow. i will see soon, i hope.
good luck
