I am going to try and grow a Monotub, I've read the guide and have some questions, dont know if there stupid or not haha. Knobbly have experience with jars.

1. It says to add a casing layer once the mycelium turns white, what does this mean? More Substrate?

2. After you make the substrate how do you inoculate it inside the tub? do you just inject it with syringes throughout the tub, if so how much do you need? Doesnt seem like it, i tihnk im missing something. If not syringes what do you use and how much do you need?

3. How much weight can you expect from one tub? Like a 1/2 pound?

4. It says it needs natural light? How could this be accomplished artificially, does anybody have any recommendations?

5. Some say to lessen the heat during fruiting? I've never heard of this until today, is that normal?

I would really appreciate it as i plan on growing multiple Monotubs.

Read the WBS (wild bird seed) tek and watch the videos.   That will give you a lot of information.

 Recommend starting with the 6 quart tubs to start not because it's easier but your chance of success is higher and it gives u a chance to play with the conditions a bit and will teach u a bunch.just follow the tech of your choice to the t and u will do great .

      See I asked about this before about coir thinking it was structure and was told coir is slow nutes. I would say let's get our ducks in a row, but would hate us all chasing the wrong tangent. Perhaps some collaborative testing? Just not sure how to go about it. Any ideas?

      I had to look.🙄 And now I regret it.😉

      No.   My understanding is they simply provide some form of nutrient to help pull the mycelium growth through the coir substrate.   Fruiting is a response to starvation and evaporation from what I understand so the less nutrients the shorter the time to fruit.    How much time should you wait after adding lime to take a new Ph reading?    I would assume adding untreated coir to high Ph coir would bring down the Ph level to an acceptable level.   If I am wrong in this assumption let me know.   If I should toss it let me know that as well.

      Thankfully bugs haven't been a issue here. But damn, how to rid a dwelling of powder mildew(if that's what I'm seeing)? Already tossed the house plants it was found on. Afraid I may need to vent the tent outside.

      Do the grinds buffer high pH?
