Would this work?
    #944925 - 10/09/02 09:36 AM (16 years, 3 months ago)

I was planning on colonizing about 10 jars using the brown rice flour substrate, my question is about the terranium that I wish to transfer these to once the colonization is done. I have read that using water and perlite (I believe that was the name) to line the bottom of the terranium with will keep the humidity up high with little maintainence/adding of water from myself. My question is could I simply take a plastic cooler, use the perlite technique on the bottom of it and grow the mushrooms in there or would I need to add the drip shield or anything else? I'm aware that I need to maintain the humidity level somewhat and mix up the air in the terranium as well as expose the growing cakes to light every now and then but as far as terranium set up goes, would this work?

Might want to do a search or look in the FAQ for more answers to this questions.

Perlite is great/cheap for humidity. Play it by ear with the drip shield, you might be able to put vaseline or something on the lid to prohibit the collection of water droplets.

Don't forget to check the FAQ.....hours of reading that will give you a much better insight into this great hobby. :grin:
