Raybo's Leak-proof InnTainer Construction Guide Now Available

rnewste(8b NorCal)November 10, 2011

After the past year of development / testing, I am now releasing the InnTainer Construction Guide for general use. The design is optimized for indoor growing of tomatoes, peppers, etc. during the Winter months. It employs a combination of natural sunlight, supplemented by artificial lighting, when necessary.

The InnTainer is based upon the Rubbermaid 18 gallon tote:

The key innovation has been to incorporate a 3 gallon water reservoir with a real-time level indicator system:

The Guide is pretty comprehensive, but if you have any issues, be sure to holler.

Here is a direct link to the Construction Guise:


Have Fun!!!

First off, I am not a Chemist - - but in the research I've done Hydrated Lime is VERY fast acting and can cause problems with soil pH balance. Dolomite Lime on the other hand, is much slower to react, and will over time, be better to control BER in tomato plants.
