Coir question?
    #11418121 - 11/09/09 01:18 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

After I have pasteurized the coir and mixed in the verm and spent coffee grounds how do I go about spawning it?
I have a monotub on its way its still being made.

I have some large trays aluminum and there about 4inch deep do I use these or a bag of some sort? and while the spawn colonizes could I leave it in the monotub with the holes sealed then fill it with that fluffy stuff when its ready to fruit..?

Check the signature for an explanation, it'll show you how to make a monotub and explains how to mix your spawn with your bulk. It should answer all your questions.

:goodluck:

Im still lost on the monotub idea do I just pour the spawn into the tub ? wait till it colonizes then induce fruiting conditions? Im pritty sure I seen garbage bags in the mono's before?

Put spawn and pasteurized bulk sub mix into tub and mix together real well. Before you do that you can either use duct tape around the bottom or a garbage bag to prevent side pinning - Trust me, you don't want this. a monotub is a set it and forget it way of growing. As long as your sub is well hydrated, all will be well. Keep the lid on during colonization.

I always tape a garbage bag around the bottom of my tub. It's easier for me to get the substrate out of the tub when it comes toime to dunk the tub and put in a new trash bag.

When mixing: I just do my mixing in a clean tub that will accommodate my spawn and sub and then place it into my clean mono by handfuls after i mixed it up. then leave it alone for 10 days or so and then place into fruiting
