Monotub- Clear Container, Black Lid - will this work or does the lid need to be clear?
    #9752367 - 02/06/09 09:57 PM (12 years, 20 days ago)

Im thinking of buying a large container for a monotub, but the ones I can get locally are clear with a black lid, will this be okay or will the shrooms grow sideways towards the light? If I look a little harder I can get tubs with clear lids, im just checking if its neccesary

Thanks

You might get pinning under on the sides and under part with a clear container. And yes your shrooms most likely will grow sideways and to the light. Just get a solid colored container, cut a whole on top, place a clear film on top, and have a top mounted light source. You'll get nice and straight mushrooms that way. You also can grow mushrooms with no light but they'll be pretty wacky looking.

I would use a trash can liner to prevent side pinning, and id agree, i grew a final flush with no light or fanning and they were weird shrooms, thin and almost albino, and they dropped no spores

Even a trash bag isn't totally light proof and you won't have the added protection of a solid colored exterior absorbing light. I'd just do whats trusted to work is all.

Here's my favorite:



18 gallon rubbermaid tough tote, clear acrylic panel, 2" soffit vents, $15-20 total :-D

Easy to clean/disassemble, reusable.  Easy to use, maintain.  Good yields.

i've been throwing some baking pan cakes into tubs like those shown above.
i cut a square out of the top and wrapped it around with cling wrap.
working wonders at the moment.
