wat size is the monotub ?

In the text of the tek, it is stated that the tote is a sterilite 60qt. I am very familiar with the methods Mycopathic posted here, and I can tell you that the Sterilite 60qt has a good sealing lid, and is perfect all around for this type of tek. The other tubs like the 56 qt, and the 58 qt have to have weather stripping applied to the lip of the tub, because they have crappy lids.After the weather stripping is applied though they work just fine, but you will have to decrease sub amount so that your sub doesnt go above the bottom holes... that would be disasterous, as you would have to manually fan the tub.

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.

This is very easy to follow for someone like myself who has not done monotubs and is tired of misting and fanning. Everytime I thane a free minute I have to spend it missing and fanning lol. I will be following this tec in my grow log once my lc is ready. Thanx man

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 ;)

      Went hiking with a old friend and found like 20 typles of different mushys in the forests.  I will also give my first cost a Rica print to who can name each type in the pictures according to my field guide.

      I suppose that ahoud be done in very sterile condition,right??? I now sclerotia is relatively easy to grow but getting the fruits is not so much. Poslano sa mog SM-A300FU koristeći Tapatalk

      Your vermiculite has to be field capacity before you add the grain spawn to it.  You can not just add x amount of water.  You need to add water...test it in your hand, then either add more water or more vermiculite until it is perfect.  The whole process pretty much hinges on having perfect field capacity.  The more off you are in either direction, wet or dry, the more complications you may have with your grow.   In this tek, under the substrate video, you will learn how to get field capacity.  This specificly starts around 3:50 in the video. After you put the foil on you leave the lid on the container.  DO NOT OPEN for 10 days under any circumstances.  You are trying to trap the Carbon Dioxide in to promote your spawn to run the substrate.  Fresh Oxygen at this stage will cause problems.  Once the time is up you remove the foil and then move it into fruiting conditions.

      It's grain I believe, after crumbling case it? Thanks mm! appreciate the info.   verm good enough casing?
