Putting Cakes on Plastic Lids
    #4476476 - 07/31/05 07:15 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

As seen in the following image...
sporesomethingorother.com's image...

...I too want to put my cakes on lids. I have saved 10 blue plastic marshmallow cream jar lids. Is plastic an alright material for the cake to sit on (brf pf tek) and should it be on the perlite upside down like a cup\bowl for the cake to sit in, or should it be right side up like a pedistal for the cake to sit on? If it's left upside down and the cake placed inside of it, should I put perlite in the lid too, so the cake can sit on perlite? Thanks in advance.

Why use a lid if you're going to put perlite in it? :smirk:

It should be fine on the perlite BUT, it will probably get rather messy.

Those lids will werk...But I'd get wire mesh for future grows.

It doesn't matter how you lay the lids down IMO, You just don't want water to collect...:thumbup:

exactly why i would put them on the top of the lid instead of inside, cause as you mist chances are water will fill up inside the lid and potentially cause some rot to start in the myc.

either way will work though. just make sure that your cakes aren't sitting in water.

peace

Thanks guys... I appreciate the fuck out of it.  :smile:  I'm about two weeks from inoculation... just getting everything sorted and planned out for when the time comes.  Hippie, that's one hell of a cake terrarium, also!  $_$
