Coco coir and mono tub
    #15903449 - 03/05/12 02:30 PM (2 years, 1 month ago)

Hello!

Well I read a lot on coco coir tek and I have few question

In this article: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/11916595/page/1/fpart/1

It shows how to prepare it
But in many threads I read about mono tub
It mentioned to add some rye or even coffee ?

I have about 5 pf tek jars of cubes ready and I want to try mono tub
With coco coir

So my main question is if this article above is ok with pf tek cubensis
And if there is no need of any other ingredient that wasn't mentioned there?

Any other tips?

Thanks!

Don't bother with coffee until you've had successful grows without it, coffee complicates things a little and it works just fine without.

Rye would be referring to the spawn used, that and wild bird seed seem to be the most popular.

The easiest additive to Damion5050's tek is gypsum. About 1/4 cup per brick.

5 BRF cakes won't be enough for the tek.
You'd need around 30-40 cakes per brick of coir.

Coffee is a great additive, but requires proper pasteurization.

Thanks for the info friends

What exactly it means "spawn" ?
English is not my mothers tongue so I can't get it by the exact translation

I heard it means the actual cakes
Well pf tek uses brown rice powder so ?..

Yeah I'm a bit confused :  \

Hmm, I just spawned with 7 cakes per tub and I used 85-90% of a brick, so 14 cakes per that amount of coir.

I did as was advised by one community member who got 240 grams out of two tubs this way.

Reading what you've said made me anxious now.

Spawn is a colonized substrate that you mix with an uncolonized bulk substrate.

So your fully colonized pf tek cakes can be spawn, if you crumbled them up and mix with the coco coir.

Rye and other grains are typically used as spawn, because you can break them up inside the jar.

Also you could spawn 5 pf tek cakes to 1 brick of coir, but it would take a long time to fully colonize and might stall or contaiminate. Higher spawn to bulk ratios are perferd. like 1 jar of spawn to 1 jar of bulk substrate. or 1:2
