Colored bins with clear lids ....
    #9062229 - 10/11/08 10:17 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Im looking, and looking around for some but for the life of me cant seem to find what I would prefer.

Im looking for some 60 qt (approx) or so bins that are colored, but come with clear lids to use as monotubs.

Has anyone seen any bins like this?? If you could point me in the right direction that would be great...

Thanks -

I couldn't find any, nor could I find a mix and match combo that would work. I was concerned about this at first, but I think clear works just fine. I think the only difference is that it is important to do the black trash bag trick with the clear. I don't know if side pinning is an issue on the non-clear bins or not.

It may be less an issue of light than an issue with being in contact with something so that the side of the sub is not exposed to the atmosphere. If this is so, then the trash bag trick would be necessary with either type, as your substrate is going to shrink no matter what, and I think the trash bag stays in contact with the sub when it shrinks.

I'd be interested in more experienced mycologists opinion on this (light vs. contact with a surface).

Are those white trash bags? And do you think it's exposure to the air that causes the pinning, not light? I gotta think that's true. I put duct tape on the outside of mine because I forgot the trash bag, and it side pinned like mad.

If so then a non-clear tub is of no benefit.

Light is there for some minor reason, as compared to the need for Air.

The reason you had side pinning was because the clear tubs act like fiber optics and transfer the light down all the way to the bottom, just by shining light anywhere, and thats why we try to make sure that the foil is on the Inside of the tub, oh that was foil BTW in the pics... black plastic is superior.

You could get a large colored bin and use it's colored lid. Get your light in the 4000+k range and cut the hole for it. Wouldn't that work for sufficient lighting?

Most totes from Rubbermaid and Sterilite are clear with colored lids. Go with what the previous posters have mentioned and use something opaque on the sides where the substrate shows.

here is a link for stack and views, there 21 gallon                      www.acehardware.com/sm-rubbermaid-stack-n-view-tote-10-pack-rubbermaid-stack-n--pi-3211999.html They only sell 10 packs,but if you call your local ace store theyll order you however many you want.

I don't know what region your in, but the local wal-mart has the same tubs I use, (46 quart rubbermaid) only they just put out the orange and black varieties.  I would just swap out a couple lids and your set.

Someone needs to look up Fiberoptics
if all of your light blocking material is on the outside, you can and will still end up with side and even bottom pinning.

no i dont hate you, I hate that you and I both had to learn all of this total misinformation along with the good stuff, and for some of the members out there, you know them, if its written here, then it must be true, and they think they know that mushrooms have to be Incubated at 860 or that they need to be in the dark while colonizing...

total BS and im trying to clear it up.

I dont hate you, even if I seem like an asshole

I know, I ain't worried about it.. I'm not like some of the people I have seen on the forum that take things personally.. I been growing for 6 months and if I am told that it's not a good idea.. Then I don't do it cause I am probably wrong lol..

So na I don't think your an ass.. I get what you are doing.. And this sign says it all..  :notards:

Right on, Menace. Shrooms are nothing like growing weed, when you have to have an ungodly amount of light placed directly over the top.

There are some 64 quart sterilite bins i found at k-mart AND wal-mart for 10 dollars i think, if not less. The entire tub is see-through. Not just the lid. Nothing some spraypaint can't fix.


In reality you could just get a colored rubbermaide of said size, and cover the top with cling wrap. It would work just fine. Making an air-tight chamber is a bad idea anyways.

Um, dude... your not telling me anything I dont already know and want to forget.
Besides, spray paint on the outside of the tubs wont work, you canb do it, but then youll be crying about how they are side pinning like its some HUGE disaster to your grow.
I have been doing this alot longer than 3 days

if its on the INSIDE only, and if it is on the inside you gotta make sure it dont have any antifungal properties like most silicone sealants do today
