Breaker- perlite is the way to go for a beginner... set the cakes on the lids... no need to drain excess water, just put down an inch or so of perlite and then 1/2" of water. The top of the perlite should be dry.

Hey Breaker,

I have some friends that have grown mushies in 2 liters w/ perlite (cakes and casings). It worked pretty well. If you get a couple of 1 gallon Sunny Delight jugs at your local store, empty & wash them and cut the tops off (so you're left with a plastic cylinder and a top), you can use those too, I like them better because they have more room. I live with my mom so I am kinda pressed for room to grow too, and these seem to work good enough for me. Another thing I'm thinking about trying is going down to the bottled water company and buying a couple of those 5 gallon, blue tinted water jugs and trying the same thing, they would probly hold ~6 cakes or a nice casing or 2. Hope this helps. :smile:
DH

I actually think casing is fine for beginners. I used casing the first time I grew, and it worked fine. You don't need to use a big ass terrarium or anything. It's just my opinion though.
