Like the wire mesh bag idea hippie3. Like chicken wire maybe?


perhaps, but it need not be metallic,
those mesh bags like oranges and onions come in
should work as well

Heheh just so you know waylitjim isn't eatualive, two different people. :)

I have found though that one tub can achieve just as great of results. Those tall tubs leave plenty of room.

yea co2 would seem to dispurse as it is a slight bit lighter than air. Its a greenhouse gas that raises to the "stratosphere" (hmm, stratified air, yup, air that is stratified,basicaly due to temperature and enthalpy/grains of water per pound of air).
Lighter than air gasses raise and dispurse; hydrogen, helium, chlorine, ozone, carbon dioxide, methane ( thanks Doob) etc..
Where as heavier than air gasses do pool in low spots if there is no air movement acting upon them: propane, butane, gasoline vapor,most refrigerants and the like.
co2 in a vented container such as a jar with holes, or a tub with filtered holes would tend to dispurse the gas by the rules of difusion and osmosis, where an area of higher concentration tends to migrate to an area of lesser concentration unless blocked some way.

Heres an experiment weighing gasses and some explination of a couple of Daltons laws about properties of gasses..

An interesting developement as occurred from this "levitation".
This is the second flush for this tray and there are more fruit coming from the bottom of the tray than the top. I guess it doesn't matter where they come from as long as they come.:) After all, it's all fruiting surface now!
This tray sits in a tub, high on the top shelf allowing light to get underneath it.
This has occured with other trays as well. The last two photos show another tray, second flush, same deal.:D

FOAF gets second flushes on the wrong ide of Tex trays all the time. Even in dark containers w/ no holes. He goes to toss a spent tray to find an entire flattend flush on the bottom. So he monitors and if it 'flips' he just flips it and lets them grow.

Seems to only happen w/ tex.

Crap trout......my friend is going to have to adopt some of your ideas. He has great success birthing small cases that shrunk and started pinning down the sides, but it seems you are on to something for a bit larger projects and getting the most out of each flush. Good work my friend as always.

This is another good indication that cubes like to fruit at edges, corners, where something is touching the cake, etc.

Might be an evolutionary trait since mushrooms growing out in the open are more prone to being stepped on than mushrooms growing up against something like a tree.

kinda like we human males who hafta pee on something
ever tried peeing out in the middle of an open field?
feels kinda weird lol

uh ok that was random

Nice work Trout! This is a similar idea to my balls of straw in fish net. I'll share them later on. Damn nice Trout!

Today I flipped a tray over. The shrooms are preventing the substrate from falling out of the tray. I'm going to leave them like this to see what happens.
There are only about 5 shrooms on the other side.

Cool idea as some minicasings benefited from being birthed as cakes and let the sides and bottom fruit on a 3rd through 5th-6th flush.

i suspect that
since gravity pulls water down
to the bottom
that might explain why
fruits are more plentiful
down under

If a light was placed under them wouldn't they grow staight (upside) down? You could push jars or glasses through the perlite and rocks and shine a torch up through them at nightime or someting. Would that work?

Only a day later and the shrooms are all straightened up.
They are now just about ready for picking. Only a few veils remain unbroken.
As you can see there are only five shrooms on the other side.
