Rubbermade lid, what did you use
    #4196998 - 05/19/05 08:52 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I'm going to be using a rubbermade container for my fruiting chamber and i was wondering what to use for a lid. I don't think the lid that came with it is going to keep in the humidity because of small gaps. I was thinking about using saran wrap but i would need to use several strips of it to completly cover it and there would be a little overlap? will this be good enough to hold in the humidity? Do they make saran wrap or some kind of plastic that would be big enough to cover it with only one large piece? Do you think that the original lid would work? if you've used a rubbermaid fruiting chamber what did you use for you lid and did it work well? :mushroom2:

I used extra wide Saran wrap (restaurant grade), and clear plastic tape to cover the holes. I cut a square out of the lid and taped saran wrap over it. The holes where over where the hand-holds where, and I just covered them w/clear plastic tape.
  I'm not sure if that's coherent... If it isn't ask what you don't get :smile:

Ive used Rubbermaids with the Lids with almost 100% RH
Suran Wrap is a Waste!

Edit:
If Anything Use the PRess and Seal Glad Wrap!

But just use a Lid and Cut a Hole in Center Pop in CPU Fan hooked up to a Timer and your Golden! Even add a Fishpump with PErlite and Sit back and Wait! :mushroom2:

yeah for fruiting, did you use a layer of saran wrap and then the lid with the saran wrap window, or did you just use the lid with the saran wrap window? My lid is clear so i wouldn't need a window for the indirect light. Also, what did you use for the indirect light? Harvest dry weitht?

All they really need light is for a few hours a day if that!

I just use the Lid and A CPU fan in the center that goes on every 2 houyrs for 10 minutes!

As long as it's close to airtight and wont let contams in...your ok!!

You shouyld look into the Automated Grow system

Just get

-Fish Pump
-CPU FAN
-12 Volt Adapter
-Timer!
-Marine Glue
-Filter


The CPU fan I have actually has 3 blue spectra on them to Give a nice blue glow onto the shrooms and well Does good!

IT's worth the extra $$$$ for the setup because I cant be home all the time too give fresh air!!!

Ive noticed a big difference already! Plus I dont have to fan almost at all!
I still do but not like i uysed too :eek:

I have a large rubbermaid(55 gal). I use the original lid. I have a couple holes larger than an inch cut into it for exhaust humidity and light. Yet my humidity never drops below 90.

use the lid that came with it, it will hold enough humidity in, plus that is what the casing is for, to hold the humidity to cause pinning. You will be wasteing your time if you try to cover it in plastic wrap

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.
