monotub dunking question
    #11198219 - 10/07/09 02:47 AM (8 years, 8 months ago)

instead of adding a casing layer i want to just dunk the monotub in cold water and keep it there for 3 or 4 days after i add the bulk and spawn to the tub.

would this inniciate pinning?

Not really clear on what you're asking...

If you've just mixed the spawn and the bulk substrate you have to wait until it is fully colonized, then you can choose to case or not, and whether to dunk before or after the first flush.

Personally I don't case bulk, and I wait till after the first flush to dunk.

Hope that helps, but again, not really sure what you meant.. :shrug:

... you've had some interesting questions and such.  Im assuming your planning on doing PF Tek, then spawning to a monotub to bulk and fruiting...

Well; i'd do a little bit more reading if i were you.  http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/8468463/fpart/1/vc/1
Thats most everything RR has posted about growing.  Hit CTRL+F and type a word from a question you have (IE right now i'd search dunk and use ctrl+g to go threw till you find what you need).

A casing layer is a mosture additive for fruiting.  Dunking is to add water after a flush.  Neither of which are fruiting conditions.  Pinning requires Full Colonization, light, RH, and FAE.

I thought that you needed lots of moisture and humidity when the spawn was colonizing the substrate, I guess there's even less work for me :P

Thanks Mana

Yup.  I do it too.  Get ambitious and start trying to jump to the finish line without starting.  I personally say skip the PF, get some RYE and read up on Rye Prep; Bulk substrates; monotubs; and mushrooms in general.  Its really hard to understand how to better conditions for a mushroom if you have no idea how they grow...

Take your time; do it right.  Why rush along and get say a oz when for the same time; and just a smidge more work; you can pull 2-3 oz flushes, with say 3 flushes on a nice tub...  Patience is a virtue...
