My friend found something called "Pet Trays" at Wal-Mart in the pet section. They are big (8"x11" or even bigger) and they are thick plastic. They work perfect for him. Oh yeah, and they were super cheap too, like $2 each.

Good luck!

You can try the gladware reuseable tupperware containers at any major supermarket. They're really cheap, just tape the sides. You can also try the bread baking pans at the store. Not the flimsy aluminum ones, but the thicker bakeware ones. That's what I've been using. They're a couple bucks apiece, but they seem to work really well so far. :smile:

Depends on the size you want to use? And, if you want lids on each one?

Sterlite & Rubbermaid tubs w/lids work great for individual containers. :grin:

For large go arounds in a small sealed humidified room -- mortor mix tubs @ $5 ea are great (Home depot). :grin:

You can also check at any pond plant place. They have great nice size black plastic tubs that their pond plants are shipped to them in & will usualy sell them -- cheap. :grin:

yah, i got some HDopot morter tubs too. i'm trying to figure a way to plastic weld on some abs pipe to make them stackable. I want something like the tray system in TMC, but made of plastic.

Do you think it would be possable to weld some stackable aluminum trays for this method?

straw is less nutritave and produces less, so it needs to be deeper.

Yeah they must be.....unless they are getting the smaller ones.
I have found small mortar boxes a little bigger than an Alum bread pan.
These work really nice!

Shaw,

Certainly, I read this in a book somewhere.

With the larger mortor mix tubs, you will find when they are full of dung/straw combo or compost & at a optimal moisture level. They can weigh 75 to 100 pounds each.

I don't think you would want to stack them in anything less than real heavy duty.

On heavy duty shelves, it is easy to simply build 3/4 inch pvc pipe frames around them. Not to hold them up. But to encase them. Get big ass clear plastic bags to encase the PVC frame with -- with the mnortor mix tub inside the frame & bag.

Easy to access, open - close w/twist tie. You can even set them up - cheap & easy - with "positive " pressure air ventilation & humidification.

Take a peice of heavy duty plastic tape & tape it to the back of the bag. Then poke 3 or 4  tiny tiny pin holes in it, for air to EXIT out of.

Simply stick a fish tank aquaruin tube in the bag opening & have the cheap little air pump draw from close to a hummer outlet. Have it on a timer. Auto fan/mist, as simple as that. You will be pumping in more humid air than can instantly escape from the tiny pin holes at the back of the bag -- creating positive pressure - ventilation.

6T :tongue:

I saw some nice shelves at lowes. I'd probably make my own though. If i got everythink going how i want it, I'd have a set of four stand alone shelves, all incased in .6 mil plastic drop cloth. Then a cool mist for when it's hot, and a warm mist when it's cold, set up on a humidity/temp gague. and a filtered air intake. I need to get back with my compugeek friends from highschool. I think Gabba was talking about greenhous environment controll software a while ago.

Glass cake pans are great and can reuse indefinetly . I picked up a 13 x9x2 for 3 bucks at a discount store . I know it has no contams in surface each time I use , plastic gets kinda iffy in my opinion .  :cool:
