Mini monos
« on: February 01, 2013, 04:12:15 PM »

Started a few scales down monotubs, besides decreased yield has anyone had any exp. with a project like this ? Pros , cons? Obvious advantage with these if something goes wrong you don't lose tons of spawn and waste your bulk and casing at such large quantities!

Web like veins sounds good - probably lots of rhyzo myc. I'd like to see a pic.
I dont really like the looks of this fuzzy one. The colour seems really off. Keep us posted and good luck. :mellow:

Does it look like cobweb to you ? Is there anything I should try or is that one just toast?

I was only able to open one pic. The colour didnt look nice and white... Very brown/yellowish. Is it the lighting in the photo? Is there a casing layer?

yup did a 50/50 verm/coir casing layer ... colonized for 10 days like i read in the tek!  cased then brought to fruiting conditions ...looked like that after i removed foil and cut down the bag(the lighting is kinda yellowish as well so that may be part of it ), i sprayed with a 1% peroxide solution just to see , like i said i just brought another tub to fruiting and the myc looked very healthy , just cased it last night . now its in fruiting , with 69-72 degree heat, slow moving air ect. the spawn looks a little yellow but it is from BRF and vemic Cakes i used as spawn ... One question i had was do you remove mico tape for the exhaust holes or leave it on during fruiting ? also what is the benefit to casing/or not casing?

I dont tape my holes up. It looks like you have a lot of holes in your monotub. I have  1 in each corner an 1 in the middle of each long side for a total of 6 holes at 1/8 in size. This is all you really need for FAE. I dont bother with the large holes stuffed with polyfil.
The casing layer is used as a H2O reservoir, so you dont want it too thick - thr myc isnt suppose to use it for nutrients. If you are doing a MS run, casing layer helps with a more uniform pinset. For a clone run, I've been told its not so important.
What is that tube sticking in the side of the tub?

Oh I see well on my next tub I won't pop so many holes , my casing is about a quarter inch and is just straight sterilized berm and coir so shouldn't have any nutrients , the tube leads to a little reptile humidifier which brings in fresh humid air slowly . I was thinking it would provide good FAE without the need for a fan! Similar to the device MoGrow had in one of his posts.

A good investment is one of those air scrubers with hepa filter. Even with the small holes in my mono; I get enough air circulation from the scrubber. Less air contams, no fan, and no humidifier. :mellow:

Oh that's a good idea ill check into that ! So with the questionable tub should I continue a peroxide mist? And if it is cobweb and it subsides will the myc take back over or what direction should I go? Continue fruiting or back to colonization?

I mix grains into sub with sterilized glove. Put into darkness for 3-6 days untill fully colonized. Add casing layer and mist with H2O/peroxide. Put back into darkness for 2-4 days. Then right to the window. I do mist between flushes, but I have read that this is a no-no. So I dunno, works for me :mellow:

Ya, just for the myc to establish itself with the casing layer. You have the right idea with it being 1/4 inch thick. The light should be fine. CFL bulbs above 3200K is what ive been told.

Cool I have aquarium flouros at 6700k , will keep you updated , I don't know if you answered about the cobweb earlier tho ... If I get it to subside will the myc still colonize and fruit and while trying to rid this mold should I have that tub in fruiting or colonizing conditions ?

You just dont want a light that will give off heat. Ya, hit that cobweb with h2O2 and keep us posted! Good luck! :mellow:
