I cant remember if there has been any discussion on this thread about growing outside in containers like large flower pots but I have 5 going in addition to some outside beds.  Even though I made shoebox totes with wood chips and also sawdust bags I find that often in outside beds there is still grain present. and varmints will dig up the beds. .   Also slugs are a problem where I live and containers prevent them from invading for the most part.  Just some thoughts.

seeker i was looking through this thread yesterday and saw flower pots square and round with fruit , i recall it only takes 2 or 3 liters of colonized chips to fruit of course ,more is better.

I saw you post about 5 years ago on page 13 or 14  here's a square flower pot or that's what I think it is, wavy caps. there's some smaller round pots with ovoids in here  among others totes too.

I make cake-blocks, that I later remove and case in a larger container (such as a tub or large flower-tree pot).

You can add non-toxic slug pellets around and on the surface of the tub-pot colony.

Cake blocks?  Thanks for the slug pellet suggestion.

Like in my illustration, the white rectangle is the block (colonized substrate in a tray-container, removed).

I used wood rich compost and lime for my casing.
