Trashbag inside of double tub
    #4349556 - 06/29/05 05:47 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, all you guys doin the double tubs say you put a trashbag inside... and at first I thought this was to keep light from hitting the sides of the substrate. However after reading through Augustin's recent post on the subject, it dawned on me that the trashbag would also keep water from collecting of the sides of the tub and dripping down onto the sub. So what I'm asking is, if one had forgotton (doh!) to put the trashbag in, could this pose a problem? As of now, there is condensation dripping onto the sides of my substrate... *sigh* =( Think it is ok?

(note: that BLUE is some poster tacky stuff I used to mark 5 inches)

Ideally you want the trash bag inside the container to keep light away from the sides and to keep condensation from pooling onto your substrate. I made the mistake of putting the trash bag on the outside the first time as well.
Your setup will work fine, but next time try and get that bag on the inside. Having the bag on the inside also makes for easy removal during the harvest if you have to remove side pins. Just grab the bag out of the container and place it onto a sterile surface. The bag will naturally lay down and expose the side of the substrate.

Good luck.

I made the same mistake a few weeks ago trying to rush job everything. only thing you have to worrie about is if the bag comes off you will have some pins on the sides,... mine didn't grow very well. all the shroomies on the top did great though.
