The Air Pump Mono Tub - Multispore Cubensis, 2nd flush pinset almost ready Updated 11/8 9:18 PST * 2
    #19058333 - 10/30/13 05:32 PM (1 year, 28 days ago)

There is a longer story behind this but I wanted to get the pictures up.

General setup.  Monotub with a 5/16th inch hole on each long side with an air pump piping in fresh air through a little hose.  The hose end sticks about an inch and half into the tub.

I decided to experiment with these spawn jars because they had been consolidating for 5 weeks.  They didn't get used right away due to budget restrictions.  So I waited and waited and in the meantime I had another round of grains colonizing that I wanted to use and I ended up using those first before these.  So...  5 weeks of consolidation.  I shook one jar to see if they were still alive.  The mycelium recovered but it took almost an entire week.  I was a little nervous.

So I spawned them using damien's coir verm recipe and franks proper pasteurization.  Colonization took almost 14 days.

This was originally going to be a no-hole monotub.  I misted and fanned according to sgfcchamber's no hole fanning schedule but I didn't see any pins for about 12 days.  One the twelfth day I had built my Tub in Tub incubator and decided to experiment by  piping in the fresh air with an extra air nozzle on  the pump I had bought.

At the end of the next day there were knots all over the substrate.  Still took another 4 days to see primordia and pins.  Now here we are.

Anyway, pictures are here.  More to come.

       


It's hard to tell from the pictures but there are knots all over the substrate and new pins keep popping up every day.  I have high hopes.

Update 10/31 First Golden Caps appearing. Woo.


Later Update Harvested Three shrooms that had broken veils.  Took prints of two of them.  These fruits are the thickest I've ever seen.  They're solid all the way through. In a few of the pictures you can see the stumps with blue bruising where I cut them.

           


I can't wait to get my LG G2 with 13 megapixel camera tomorrow!  Will make for much better images.

Nov 1st Canopy is coming in nicely.



I don't want spores dropping on the substrate so I started harvesting the early risers and making prints.  So far I've harvested six mushrooms with a total wet weight of 60 grams!  These little guys are so damn dense.  They're not really growing taller than about 4 inches or so but damn they are thick and meaty all the way through.

Update Nov 1st 9:02  Things are looking good. Lots of flat caps. I'm hoping they don't unleash a sporasplosion just yet. I want them to all be open together to get one super good picture.

     


Got my new phone today.  The camera rocks. Finally have nice enough pictures to put in my signature.

Later: So in case no one else noticed from the last pictures, the stems have gotten really fuzzy over the last 48 hours.  For some reason when they were all just little pins I was getting great FAE, I even had a huge area of evaporation on one wall of the chamber.  As the shrooms have gotten larger the air pump isn't doing enough to circulate the air around the bases of the mushrooms in such a thick pinset.  Humidity has gone through the roof and the walls and roof are dripping with water.  I've cracked the lid on the chamber, hopefully this will help a little.

Nov 2nd: Finally got the canopy I wanted.

 


Time to harvest!  Wet weight 687 grams.  Never had fruits this thick before so I'm wondering what the weight will come out to dry.

11/6 Second flush pins are coming in nicely.  Didn't dunk the tub, just misting a couple times a day.



11/8 Looks like I'll be harvesting a couple fruits tomorrow. The second pinset looks just as good as the first. Really happy with how this tub has turned out.

Canopy is coming in nicely.  I'm taking prints if anyone is interested.  These are 'texans' if anyone cares.

So cool dude!

I used to use a air pump for my FC, so glad its still being used! I had to stop using the air pump for stealth reasons. But still miss using it.

Looks like your grow is doing great. Very inspiring. I might just have to make a "silent box" for the air pump and attempt this. Looks frickin awesome.

Probably the final update for a while on this thread.  Any questions or comments let me know!  My overall conclusion is that while the air pumps create enough passive FAE during the beginning of fruiting, when the fruits come in there is just simply not enough air circulating around the entire chamber to keep the fuzzy bottoms from forming.  Still happy with the results though considering the grains consolidated for so long.
