Gas Exchange During Bulk Colonization
    #11305903 - 10/23/09 02:33 PM (8 years, 6 months ago)

It is essential, as I am told, to provide some means of gas exchange during grain colonization, in my case WBS.
I've seen in a video, during spawning to a bulk substrate, however, it lay contradiction to this when a tray is completely covered by foil to keep C02 levels high.

I plan on doing my first mono-tub, and basically want to clarify this.... When I spawn the WBS to the Coir/Verm mixture I'll be using in my Mono-tub, will it be essential to provide a means of Gas Exchange during colonization of the bulk?

Thanks all, Have a good day! :smile:

They should have poked some small holes in the tinfoil after covering the bulk.  Gas  exchange is very important, but you dont need massive holes or fanning.

Also, cover the holes with Micro-pore tape. :thumbup:

Right. You want to let the CO2 levels increase, but you don't want to stifle the mycelium.

in a monotub their should be enough air space in the tub that you dont have to worry about stalling or sufficating your myc, just cover the holes and dont disturb it untill its fully colonized then polyfill or tyvek your holes and give FAE when fruiting.



the 4 grey tubs (18gal monos) are colonizing and I just wrapped them in plastic cling wrap around the bottom where my holes are.  the lids arent air tight so they allow for gas exchange. :thumbup:
