Mono vs Mono SG?
    #11752001 - 01/02/10 11:51 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Has anyone tried doing a side by side comparison of the too? I was curious if they were equally effective, or if one may have certian downfalls like not keeping good RH or somthing.

both a monotub and a shotgun tub will work perfectly if utilized correctly. after a few hundred members attest to any fruiting chamber working and post pictures of them kicking ass, there is no need to do a side by side comparison really.

find what works for you and run with it.

yeah, even though "monotub" means "1 tub" by definition, it's a name given to a tub that relies solely on the substrate for its source of humidification, and holes in the side for FAE.

a "shotgun" relies on warm air rising through the bottom of a tub, through perlite and thus humidifying the air. and is better for small trays or cakes.

So a monotub with holes like an SG would be what? still a monotub, just different hole method?

yes. but you wouldn't put holes on the bottom, since that is exclusively for shotgun tubs and is how the humidity is maintained in them. in the case you are referring to, you would just put the holes on the side, above the substrate level.

I tried a sg style mono tub after all the hype about doc_T mini tub. Personally I like the traditional mono tubs far better.  The problem for me was that it dried out to fast. I think half the beauty of a monotub is that you dont have to mist and fan all the time but that's not the case if its set up like a s/g.

Right, I just thought Mono sg, because of the hole pattern combined with a bulk sub.

It doesnt matter how much fae you have(in this case holes) in a mono, as long as there is enough right? Does too much fae effect the sub evaporation as bad as people have stated?
