What are the pros and cons of a monotub versus a casing?

It depends it you are using clones, m.s., or spores.  If your using clone's casings and mono's are a good way to go, but if your using a m.s. and u do a mono youll have different growths all around the tub (some tards, midgets, no-growths) such as in casings with more than 1 cake.  It all depends on your situation I guess, I don't like having a bunch of big bins lying around.  Plus if your mono tub gets contamed its probably all going to waste, and thats a lot of spawn, mix, time.  But if you loose one casing, its not that bad. As far as flushes go, as long as you rehydrate your casings really well your golden. Those little ones I put the pic up of a while ago dropped maybe 1-2 grams after each flush, and the mushrooms got larger after each flush...lol I use a lot of water to rehydrate.  But shit works out differently for everyone so find what works best for you and exploit it.

cool man thanks. Right now the tub is working beautifully. I am thinking of trying to clone some PE i have started in WBS ( I am going to put it in a tub in about a week or two). Any tips? I saw a video the other day about growing "super Myc" with several transfers to agar. I might give it a run.

Any tips?

-stay sterile! sterile! sterile!, always make more than 1 agar of the strain u wanna clone, usually 3 is the best cuz some might get contam'd its really easy with agars. I tried that tek "easy clone" i forgot what its called and forgot who posted it in one of the topics. Its working out pretty good, you could find it at the shroomery. Glad to hear everythings workin out, good luck on ur klones.
