no clear tote for a FC, no problem...

6 posts in this topic

I started this tread for Mr.Greenthumb, looks like he is having a hard time find a clear tote for a fruiting chamber. So if anyone gets faced with the same problem, this is a simple way of solving that problem. This is my 1st FC for bulk sub, its a old one, the tote itself is clear only the lid is not. To fix the dark lid prob all you need is a acrylic sheet (plexi-glass) a exacto knife and some silicone or polyurethane glue post-78-0-41340000-1335820484_thumb.jpg post-78-0-55217500-1335820533_thumb.jpg the sheet needs to be wider then the hole you cut on the lid.

I did this awhile back it peeled apart on me. You need to scuff up the plastic and plexi-glass edges to make for something to grab onto. Some sandpaper will work fine. I ended up just duct taping it on. no problems yet!

      Got my PE today thanks!

      First time working with a swab based innoculation vector, Agar and LC are not options atm, are they any methods i could use besides making a single Grain jar then doing G2G?

      All that stuff can be found in the salt water fish section. You would have to read what is used in the ph adjust kit.

      U should definitely not have any snakes calling over ur sub. I once read that diatonicmaceous earth would scratch reptiles belly plates & cause them to dehydrate. That's what it said.lol   Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G900A using Tapatalk

      Read my teks. None of them use gypsum at all. Then look at the results. I'm positive I can grow many species of mushrooms. Not just cubes. It can definitely be skipped! Although you do need to adjust pH with most bulk substrates. You can use gypsum to adjust pH, I just prefer using calcium hydroxide for that since it instantly adjusts pH. Gypsum is a pH buffer meaning it helps keep pH stable, but this is not effective against mycelium, as mycelium does excrete acidic enzymes as it decomposes the substrate. But because it is a buffer it doesn't really increase pH as much as calcium hydroxide will. It more so just keeps it steady in dirt.
