Monotub blues ? (Some fruits with Pics now)
    #11392837 - 11/05/09 08:12 PM (8 years, 18 days ago)

Hey ohhhh

So I have a question about my monotub. Its an OI strain and there is some pinning... but not even, and only in certain spots.

There is tons of tiny white dots all over the place, (hyphae??).

Just wondering if I its possible I put all the work into this for only a few fruits... RAWR! 

This is a multispore of OI, luckily if this does fail I have 2 more monotubs of benzi clones that are just about ready to come out of incubation.

Any input is appreciated! This is my first mono.

i'll be hoping for you buddy. I soon will be doing a similar setup and what you are fearing is something i also feear could happen.

dont fear guys, fear is a killer, the white dots are by no means a problem. if its colonized 100 (better 110%) they need a lot of fae, so give em plenty of it. dont fear contis cause your myc-brick is real resistant after fulll colonization. if you have polyfill in holes get rid of them, if you think they are ready. they are on their way. good luck with other tubs but dont rush, let them full colonize and consolidate for another week or so. best whishes to you.

Remove Polyfil? I thought that was to keep humidity while giving FAE, I have a fan blowing in the area, not directly on it. Also have a homemade humidifier hooked into it with tubing.

(Quart jar with water, poly, perlite. Air stone in bottom and an exhaust tube that goes into the monotub)


It has been out of the TiT for close to two weeks I think. Possibly 9 - 11 days?

The few pins that have come out started about 2 - 3 days ago, I am imagining. I didn't notice them really until like a day and a half ago.

Really hoping all the tiny pre-pin looking white dots actually turn into something because they are ALL over.

4 holes near top of Mono, two on each side.

1 Real real small inlet for my "humidifier" tube on the top end of one side.

you dont realy need them polyfill after conlonization. only loose maybe. Because FAE is your number 1 pinning trtigger, you want to give it as much as possible without drying it out ofcourse. Maybe you try to loosen the polyfill, your choice. And another pinning triger is the drying out of the substrate,
As you well know, the 1. and 2. flushes are the most rich flushes, and you shoul get them as soon as possible IMHO. I'm no expert, I'm yhaving trouble myself with my own tubs and lurking arroun in the net.

is that right that you blow humid air in the monotub? if so, you dont need that. ne need for additional RH in monos. I woul just watch for temp and fae.
another point is to get the co2 buildup out of the monotub, i hope you placed the holes on right level. if not, i dunno if you can do it now, or should.

Yeah if would loosly pack your holes with Polyfill..  You need lots of fresh air exchange, while still maintaining 94% + Rh.

groovy, I will take out some of the polyfill, i still want some sort of barrier there. There is moving air in the enclosed area, so I am not too concerned with CO2 buildup.

I will update you guys and let you know how it goes in the next week or so. I am excited for this one as its my first bulk. TOmorrow I am bringing my Benzi mono's out of the TiT and introducing to fruiting conditions as well, so I will have a total of 3 monotubs and 1 shotgun with a huge cake in it.

(Had a little spawn and coir left over that wasn't enough for a full mono. so I made it into a brick)

Hopefully at least one of these guys produce well! I think the benzi's will since they are cloned from a nice fruit.

Ideally you want  4-6 holes directly above the top of the substrate.

Just thought I would pop up some of the pics from the OI grow so far. This monotub didn't produce quite what I thought it would on the first run - but we will see what happens on flush 2 after a good dunk.

I definitely learned a lot from this one though which is definitely worth its weight, being this is my first bulk attempt. I still have 4 more monotubs of cloned alacabenzi that I am anxious as fuck to see come up.
