Here's some pics of my cakes in tupperware,
with holes in the bottom, kinda like big invitros.

These are pfc multispore in cakes, just brf, verm,
and tap water.

It's nice for my limited space, and frees up jars.
Saves some time and effort too. Check it out.

very nice
but not invitro, past even the chronic tek,
that's a real multi-cake terrarium there albeit a bit on the small side
but i grew many such in shoeboxes

Hahahah the top right cake (pic 3) has a huge one that looks a little too similar to a penis. Wicked looking though dude. Nice work.

you didnt use perilite at all. were you just spraying the sides of the box to keep the humidity up?

Thats what im woundering

A friend is planning on growing invitro becuase of space concerns and not having the ability to fan/spray 3 times a day.. Woundering if he should try that method for a few cakes

If the substrate size to tub size ratio is appropriate the sub will keep the rH high enough.

No spraying or fanning.

i like this idea but how does one keep the air in the tub
from getting stagnant and inviting cobweb? Or do mycel.
filled cakes with no casing have any trouble with cobweb?

cobweb's rarer on straight pf cakes
but one imagines that simply fanning 1-3x daily
suffices for fresh air exchange/s

Yup, simple fanning preevents stagnanat air and the sub will still maintain the proper rH.

I noticed holes on the bottom. Did you leave the box on a screen or what. how did you get clean air exchange w/o poly plugs?

the air exchanged doesn't have to be sterile once all substrate is fully colonized-
with holes that small the air is limited
and the lid is recessed so there's enough of a gap
to allow plenty of air circulation

Yeah a common misconseption, one that I had in the beginning, is that air exchanges must be done with clean air. IT is impossible for the home hobbiest to have a sterile grow room. As long as the sub is fully colonized contamination is unlikely.
