I have been using 116 quart containers they are long and low profile. Having 4 of these they are just to damn big, I will probably be switching to these in the near future. In the mean time I will be using them a few more times before then.**update** Walmart.com has them on clearence 6 of them for $30 so i ordered site to store to get the free shipping.

I have been using this method before this tek was on here, and it is a very good tek. I pulled almost 8oz on first flush being a noob. Now that I have a bit more experience, we will see what can be done :)

So, where's the one for the Uncased tubs? or did I miss something?

Don't quote me on this, but for uncased, I would think you would lower the wrap-around 1/4" holes at the bottom by about 1/2" - 3/4". Basically just taking away the extra space that you left for the casing layer.

But I wouldn't recommend not casing with this kind of tek. The way this tek works is with the lower temperatures / humidity and evaporation from the casing layer.

You have to use totally different hole set up for uncased subs.I know how Mycopathic grows, bc we use nearly identical techniques. Uncased subs do not perform as well as cased subs, and I doubt he actually uses them, so thats probably why myco hasnt posted it or fixed it, bc he wouldnt use that tek anyway.

There are several designs for monotubs. I will post two designs, one designed for cased subs, and one designed for uncased subs.

Did ya forget to put the uncased one up?

I answered this question for myco who is very busy. No one should use an uncased monotub that wants results like the ones that are pictured. I have also removed the reference to uncased monotubs, as they are really dangerous to attempt, and the design was never posted.

There isn't a better method of growing than tubs in terms of amount of time/work input to yield output. Awesome write up!

It almost made me mist the days of misting and fanning! :P

Easy as taking your first breath, follow TEK to a 'T', even small tubs do well, Ive yielded just over 1/4lb with this exact method and specs, but Im sure you seen it at ST Peace **D**

Sure have, there is a couple o you guys that i followed and shit. a couple o you guys always had hella good flushes and i don kno how exactly. ive never had a my sub colonize as fast as said should, and ive tried it on the dryer side and more moiste side. my lil dubtubs took about 15 or 16 days to colonize so im just afraid when i put everything in the plastic bag i wont be able to see it to gauge the colonization completion. :yeayea:

are you using cakes instead of grain spawn? are you using a glove box to noc your spawn (a real glove box)? are the tubs sealed correctly for proper c02 build up? Is the ambeint air temperature for colonization as prescribed?

Nah i use WBS cuz i love the bulk process, i made a glove box using a 60 qt and have two holes on one side. it has been perfect so far for me :D when i mix the casing and sub i have the holes on the circumfrence of the tub with some micropore and polypore to allow for G.E. and i put like 6 or 7 holes in the foil covered by micropore for the top. I use a tit setup with a steady 80* to 82*. the only difference that i do that i feel could be making mine slower is 1.the fact that my verm isnt as coarse as some teks are, mines on the mid to finer side so it might make a lil more of a denser casing and more surface area for the myc to travel, and 2. i havent used coir at all. and that probly helps the mix breathe better so the myc could travel faster and easier. if i had those two things i feel like my tubs might be faster to colonize and probly fruit also. i cant find super coarse verm though and i cant seem to find coco coir either. i looked all over my pet store. is coco coir that shit you could get at a hydro shop? :mellow:

idk if you can get it at a hydro store or not. They do sell it at pet smart. just dont get the mulch crap. The verm is a real issue. Fine verm just wont cut it in the bulk world when you are messing with poo. You do not need any verm for coir ;)

      Heres a pic of my new LC that is 12 days old. Should i let it go longer? Last time i used it after 7 days i think. Bought 5 grain jars instead of bags that i will be inoculating soon. I was also told by a friend who grows food mushies that i shouldnt have the top on the totes and fans them, that i should leave the tops totally off because them being in jars/bags then in a sealed tote is redundant and they wont breath well enough. She also recommended i leave on an indirect light source for like 10 hours a day or so to mimic real conditions. Thanks in advance!

      A big gap.  It was a story about ayahuasca and antibiotics that got me wondering about mixing the two being a bad idea.   Thank you for the input.

      Intriguing and harrowing case report of someone who injected themselves with mushroom (P. cubensis) tea...spores included. He nearly killed himself doing this, and was on ICU life support for multiple-system organ failure for some time. He had bipolar disorder type I and had been researching ways to treat his opioid dependence and depression, and was intrigued to give psychedelics a try. One very weird take away from this: "...the species of mushroom he had injected was now growing in his blood". Not only did the mushroom spores survive boiling, but they germinated and started growing in his bloodstream according to this. Curious about the wider evolutionary implications of this pertaining to the mushroom...given how tough and resilient mushroom spores appear to be, it calls into question the hypothesis put forward that psilocybin acts as a repellent...perhaps it more likely acts as an attractant. Makes me curious about the association of P. cubensis with bovine dung, perhaps bovines are ingesting spores and helping distribute them...I wouldn't put it past those crafty fungi. https://www.vice.com/en/article/v7mp74/man-injects-magic-mushrooms-they-grow-in-his-blood Study: Giancola et al.

      Thanks guys. I inoculated the LC via an agar wedge. Although the mycelium in the LC looked a bit lackluster, it does seem to be colonsing jars of rice/dung without issue. Time and heat definitely isn't an issue, the room the LC and grain jars are being stored in is nice and warm, and initial growth was rapid. Thank you for the recipe switch recommendation...I will definitely try this if I have issues.
