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 ;)

      After mixing together a bunch of wbs jars with substrate,I underestimated how much it would make, I've been trying to do away with the big monotubs because it's hard to hide so I've been doing bags ,well I ran out of spawn bags so i put the remainder of my spawn in 4 one gallon ziplock bags that i cut a hole in and taped tyvlek to. The problem is the substrate is 4 inches thick in these one gallon bags . I let them colonize for 12 days, during the spawn run the mycelium went nuts , it even grew through the tyvlek patch , its strong and healthy looking growing up the sides of the bags , and it's already pinning. The thing is  I cant  possibly see how it could work with the bags being so full of substrate , I was just kind of rushed and didnt want to waste anything so I threw it in bags not really expecting it to work . The bags are so healthy looking I hate to throw them out , but I'm not sure what to do . Any suggestions? Two of my bags are just verm and the other two are cmc, coir ,and verm... any help would be greatly appreciated ... thank you

      I just ordered the 23 quart presto pressure cooker. Does anyone use this type for sterilizing jars or bags? I’m thrilled that I can start doing my own substrates now but I’ve never used a PC before is it pretty easy?

      Pulled a gallon bag of substrate out of the freezer.   I'm going to spawn some of the Jalisco jars this next week.   See what happens.

      So today was a busy day! Transfered ropey strands from the fully colonized GT and KSSS bags to Petri dishes, really hope that some beautiful ropey myc comes of it.  Dycorotic and rizomorphic growth is beautiful.Just a quick peek of a Thai strand going into the dish before we finished up there and went on to start setting up the tubs to spawn to substrate 1 to 3 ratio. This is the Golden Teacher just placed and not spread out yet, ready to be foil wrapped and moved into incubation for 10 days.Volcano at around 10 days and will be getting the casing put over as well today along with two others to be shown later on this day. A wonderful picture of the inside of the greenhouse with what we have started and growing bigger everyday lol. And the final picture showing the humidifier and fan in working order. Would always be welcome to any ideas or different ways to look at things in getting them to grow better! Thank you
