Long time no see guys, I just read up on the 6 Quart Dub Tub technique as I have renewed my interest in growing cubes after finding some yellow fly agaric yesterday. The fly agaric wasn't consumed because I'm still a bit unsure of the trip and toxicity. ANYWAY, I'm interested in the 6 Quart Dub Tub Tek. I noticed there is now a link to a site that sells premade spawn grain and substrate bags. My question is, with that substrate containing horse manure and lime and gypsum, what kind of casing layer would be used? Do you need a casing layer for that type of substrate? Some info on using the premade spawn grain and substrate would be helpful, thank you!
hey guys I'm back again with my 5 try but second success at growing I have a few pictures to show and a few questions as well, but before I get into that I'll give the basic setup info I'm doing a 6 qt dub tub mist and fan Tek tut by mushzom I have 4 tubs two of which I used the ztub tek making holes and putting polyfill into them one of those two I used microspore tape (it didn't work) of the 4 tubs I got going right now 2 have started to pin and showing tiny mushrooms (one of which I used the ztub tek - the other old school mist and fan), one is still coming along the myc haven't gotten past the casing yet (this one I modified the ztub tek and used microspore tape "big no no") and the other well I'm not sure... the myc has gotten past the casing an it's making weird formations (I think this one is one I used cyan spore instead of regular cube spores but I'm not sure because I messed the labeling up and if I'm not mistaken I think the strain I'm using is either Burma or treasure coast an that last tub might be a cyan not sure though... you'll see in the pictures this is tub 1 (mist and fan Tek) + pins this is tub 1 again (closeup) + pins this is tub 2 (ztub tek with polyfill) + pins this is tub 2 closeup + pins this is tub 3 (the one I think it's a cyan spore + had weird myc formations) this is tub 3 again closeup of those formations I'm talking about this is tub 4 this is all four in a greenhouse with a humidifier at the bottom when I was using dubtub tek on all four I couldn't tell the humidity but my room was around 50 give or take and the temp was around 70 average in the greenhouse I've got it up to 90 percent humidity and the temp is still around 70 highest 76 since I took the tubs out from the spawn run and began to fruit it's been 2 weeks and the pins first started to show around the 15th day ok so here are my concerns/questions 1. how do they look 1 - 4 2. is it ok to move them from the dubtub tek to the mini greenhouse? 3. since I moved them to the mini greenhouse do I still mist and fan, fan only, or since I have the humidifier don't fan or mist at all? 4. the lil darkness on tub 2 at the bottom and 3 on the weird myc growth...is that contam or bruising? 5. since tubs 1 and 2 are pinning do I stop misting and just fan, especially since I have the humidifier on?
Hello all, Been wanting to grow mushrooms for a while and finally started reading and researching this past week. I've decided i'm going to try the 6 quart dub tub method to begin with the B+ Can't wait to mess up and ask for help !
mescawin posted a topic in Member Grow LogsBack again. Ive missed this place. Pretty busy at work, which is great. Been busy with some projects as always. Here's some tub and jar porn. Hopefully soon to be pin and shroomie porn. I hope to put 4 in a monotub and make 6 qt tubs with the 3 that might be goners. (See below) Did agar to wbs bc i wanted more jars. I have 6 6 qt tubs going. 2 have garbage bags, but i got frustrated and said fukkit for the other four. These were made 14 days ago. Leftover agar ive let sit too long to be any real use. I used wbs to agar. Used too many seeds in most of them, poured too deep as well. First time working with it. Can't wait to go towards an isolate with the 4 in the fridge. This third liquid culture is dank as fuck. The mycelium are fast approaching the top of the liquid. It's a tsp vanilla karo and tbsp malt extract syrup. (Too much malt extract I thought, but its only been growing). This stuff was made about a month ago prlly. I don't know what to do with so much liquid culture lol. Am i right to think that these super white expressions of mycelium are trich? I think at least these 3 jars are infected if it is trich. They've been colonized for probably a week now. Thanks for viewing. Time for me to pass out.
