2 liter bottles?
    #4625969 - 09/06/05 04:35 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

After buying a rubbermaid and 12 mason jars I'm rethinking growing alot at the same time and just thinking of doing the poor man's terrarrium. I'd have to let air out twice a day right? Would I just put a damp towel in the pop bottle and that'd have enough humidity?

Strangers passing in the street by chance two seperate glances meet and I am you and what I see is me.

You'd need to mist it, you'd need to exchange air. Perlite is better than a towel. Do your reading. However... with less volume in your fruiting chamber per cake (as a 2-liter is with one 1/2-pint cake) you'd actually need to exchange more often and mist less often. I'd recommend doing the Rubbermaid, personally - and having a 2-liter or two on the side.
