idea for a Monotub/FC combo...
    #11246393 - 10/14/09 04:26 PM (8 years, 9 days ago)

Hi,
I have grown cakes in a shotgun style FC with some success and I have done small monobuckets, as in the bucket o' fungus tek, but am unsatisfied with the results. My house stays pretty dry and I have trouble keeping RH while also getting enough FAE.
I want to do a self sustaining monotub including a coolmist that I can set and forget for multiple days, that also has the capability to be used as a grow chamber, I am thinking something like this:


Good idea?  Any suggestions?
Would this design also allow for a smaller grow just to sit inside of it on the bottom of the tub like I would sit in a Shotty?
Also, do I need a coolmist that has a UV sterilizer if I want it to stay clean?
Maybe I will need to cover the outlet holes with micropore tape?  I dont like polyfill too much.

Coolmist should come in from the bottom and the outlets hole for air should be near the top in my opinion. and theres no need for the outlet holes to be covered with anything

i thought a monotub was already self sustaining? if built correctly....if your house is dry like mines...justmake a monotub with less holes ,, maybe less then a thick in diameter....no need for the extra hassle!?

Please +REP if i've been of any help... thanks!!!

I have tried multiple monotubs with different size holes and different amounts and cant get the RH to stay up while still keeping my FAE good. I also already have access to a simple coolmist.  soo...

Run a humidifier in your room also theres no need to really fan a monotub

Alright, I can respect that.

I was just thinking it would help me be able to leave it alone for a while.  I have seen similiar things to this in a couple of teks and it seemed like it worked.  I just had an idea.
Thanks for the replies.

exactly what I was gonna say (but not twice).

phlanx, a monotub doesn't actually need to have any holes at all.  But if you want to set it and forget it for multiple days at a time, then you should do the standard polyfill thing.  If that's not working for you then something else may be the problem.

I am finding that I cant get my grows to fruit properly without me messing with them regularly, mostly misting.
I also am kind of looking at this like it could be a small greenhouse type of thing, where I could sit a tray or even a cake if I wanted, but then it has the versatility to be cleaned out and used as a monotub.
Thanks

That's a bit silly, a "monotub" is just a big container to let a substrate colonize and fruit.  How you give it FAE is your own business.  Most people drill the 8-10 polyfill-stuffed holes because they want to follow a proven tek, but if they were to experiment a little they would see that holes can be a variety of sizes and placements.  You can even have a hole-less monotub that you manually fan and get excellent results.  What you are calling a "standard monotub" is just what people around here heavily promote.  And not all growers hang around "here."

True I was just under the impression that most mono have holes in them to make them basically self automated almost all the mono I have seen have holes and im sure if someone asked how to build a mono most people would say with holes. So i just thought it was the norm/standard

Thanks,  yeah I am going to atleast give this a go and see what I can do with it. 
As I said, I already have a coolmist, but would an ultrasonic work better for my idea? would either or both provide the necessary FAE do you think?
