Will this work?

I was thinking of putting a layer of hydroton, those little clay balls, about an inch thich thick on the bottom of my FC, and then filling this with water, and an airstone connected to an airpump, then adding a .5 inch layer of perlite, then placing the casing material (growing substrate, and crushed myc.)directly onto this.
I was thinkning that you could then just cut holes like a .25" above the casing. this way the casing stays moist longer, and the FC is humid with no need to "air out" each day?
Will this work or am I just too stoned?

yeah you're just too stoned.... that method sounds doomed to be contaminated in my opinion.... maybe you could make a regular style casing and dunk it overnight before each flush..... that would keep it hydrated..... holes above the casing sounds good.... use some POLYFILL to stuff in those holes to keep humidity in and contams out........ look up on the "MONOTUB" it sounds like what you're thinking of .... the airstone isnt needed... real simple technique with great results from what i see on here..... now roll me one to chief on..... or gimme a good rating

Yeah I was thinkin tht could be a problem.
You see Ive never even read a monotub tek.
Ive been looking though.
I think Im wantin to do a bulk neglect grow or monotub.
However I dont get it, doe u just poe holes in a tub n throw the mix in(grow medium & MYC>)
And wait for it to colonize?
How do u initiate pin mode?
