More info on this self-humi tek please

I'm new and am about to begin my first grow, I just need some reviews on something I read in the casing FAQ:

Using the casing container itself as a fruiting chamber:

This has the advantage of a much larger casing area, since any large bin, itself, can be cased. There is also no need for any external means of humidification -- no perlite is needed because the humidity simply comes from the casing, itself. The casings are much larger, and are isolated from one another in separate bins. The casing container should be large enough so the fully-grown mushrooms won't hit the top (not a big deal, but it can't be a good thing) -- usually a 12" deep bin is fine. This bin is cased end-to-end, and then it's covered with saran wrap, and the casing is allowed to colonize at fruiting temperatures.

NOTE: At this point you can take advantage of the elevated CO2 levels by only fanning every other day -- this will make the casing colonize quicker.

So, a self-humidifying chamber...sounds too good to be true, is it effective?

I included this in a post earlier today, but, as it wasn't the focus, I didn't get too much feedback about it. I'd really like some opinions on it as it appeals to me. Thanks.

I do all of mine that way..you cant mist it to much or it can dry out if you dont pay attention or know what you are doing
I call those open air casings ...try a small one out so you can learn what you need to do

Is'nt that baically a mono-tub without holes in the side? (Which would decrease your need to fan even more)
