not too bad?
« on: May 13, 2009, 09:10:19 PM »

MS inocc. Equador in a tub. Not the most even pin set but the flush might be huge. Looks like some nice sized fruits to come. Popcorn with a coir/verm 60-40. I will follow up later.

I'm curious. Why no casing layer? They certainly look happy regardless. Great grow.

--- I guess as a NEWBIE  I started doing tubs the wrong way and I have had great results. I am just now starting to do them the correct way (casing). So to answer your question it was a mix of the dumb ass and the good results swayed me to stay hard headed.

Is that cotton in your fc? will that bring up your humidity? 

---- It is Polyfil and is used to allow FAE and keep out contams. Cotton is not recommended.

Very nice work, however there are a few incorrect statements in this thread.

Quote
I am just now starting to do them the correct way (casing)

Casing is optional with cubensis, either way works, neither is wrong, or right. Some argue it improves performacne, others say they dont notice much difference. Ive seen both cased and uncased do great. The only benifit that i see is an extra moisture reserve, which would explain why you seem to see larger mushrooms form cased substrates, however the yeild is usually around the same if fruiting conditiosn are good. Its good practive however if you decide to move onto species that do require a casing layer.

It is Polyfil and is used to allow FAE and keep out contams. Cotton is not recommended.

Polyfill will filter out contaminants, however that is not why its used, since fruiting chambers do not need to be sterile. Fully colinised substrate is pretty resistant to contamination. Polyfill will allow FAE to some extent and will help maintain  RH, Because the holes are so large, leaving them open wouold just let out all the moisture.

You can infact do away with the polyfill complelty, and instead drill smaller holes, 1/8th" or1/4" along the substrate leve and just micropore tape/tyvek during the spawn run. Ive seen quite a few people use monotubs with no polyfill and didnt experience contamination.
