Where can I get the plastic tubing commonly used in the straw log tek? I intend to finally start my first grow for a VERY long time, and would like to try this tek out.
Also, is it feasible to grow a/some log(s) in a full-sized closet? (not walk-in)

I found the tubing, so I'm good there, but does anybody know if the logs are growable in a closet-sized space? I have an aquarium air pump if I need to circulate air (with the door being closed and all).
Thanks in advance.

^^The link was to answer that question..^^
I didnt answer the other one.
Dial8 is correct tho...
I will add that they can grow in any area that the perimeters are controlled..RH, temp, FAE, cleanness..etc
Sorry for the dead link..

I can be fairly absent-minded at times. :special:

But I have another question about this RH situation. Isn't the whole purpose of the plastic "tent" in the straw log tek to eliminate the need for ambient RH maintenance? Kinda the same effect as growing in a plastic bottle?
If I'm wrong about this, can anyone suggest an easy/inexpensive method to maintain the RH in a closet at about 95%?

Drill drain holes in the bottom if desired. Fill bottom 3 inches with washed , soaked, drained perlite and place logs either on a rack above or on tinfoil on top of the perlite.
This would be mainly for fruiting but in a dry scenerio you could colonize like this.

The tub thing would work I'm sure, but isn't half the point of the log tek to NOT go through the whole fruiting chamber construction process? It would be a giant pain in the ass considering the size of these logs, and would only occupy even more space than they already do.

So I have another question: do I need any kind of special straw? Straw that hasn't been exposed to pesticides and whatnot? If so, where can I get such a thing? (can you tell I didn't grow up on a farm? lol)

I guess I'm just hoping this is the correct stuff?

(signs of growth were visible within 24 hours, but "real" growth within 2 days)
I don't see any contams yet. I'll take that as a "good job, mychotic, you used the right stuff".
My appologies for dumb questions, this is my first time using a pasteurized process. Only grown cakes in the past.
Edit: I suppose my reason for doubting that this is the "right kind of lime" is that I expected the lime to be white or some sort of crystaline in appearance. Far from it. It looks like tiny brown rocks and, when dissolved in the water, appears to be a cloud of dirt.
