Mini Monotub Questions.
    #14378502 - 04/30/11 06:20 PM (10 years, 15 days ago)

Okay right now I have a small plastic tub for a mini monotub grow.
How would I sterilize this? Just 70% alcohol?

Also why is there a plastic bag needed for this tek? Is it for sterile reasons so it doesn't touch the conatiner?

I drilled holes into my plastic tub.

I plan on putting a trash bag at the bottom and put moist vermiculite about 1/2 inch on top of that.

Then I'm going to crumble my cakes and spread over it.

After I'm going to put another 1/2 inch of moist vermiculite.

Does this sound efficient?

Wash your tub with warm soapy water, rinse, air dry.
How did you drill it? Number and size of holes, etc.
Pics?

I'm drilling it right now.

1/4 in per 2 inches (: just like your tek.
But I'm scared of contams after casing.

How should I sterilize vermiculite casing. I heard some people don't even do that and get good results.

Thanks doc_T

Drill the holes just like the tek, every two inches. Squeeze them in. But maybe leave the lid undrilled.

But,
crumbling and casing cakes is counter productive. Either spawn your cakes or fruit them as cakes.

If I put cakes into these plastic tubs would I have to fan?

No fanning, mist once or maybe twise a day.
I'd consider casing with Miracle Gro Moisture Control soil. Or Jiffy Mix Seed Starter.
But straight verm will work ok.

Like any substrate, you'll let it provide its own humidity, then mist to rewet it about once a day.

Alrite cool Thanks Doc! :smile: Gonna add 5 shrooms!


So I would have to

1) rinse with warm soapy water let it dry
2) put a garbage bag on the bottom
3) put moist verm on top of it
4) crumbled cakes
5) verm
 

Then I'm done and mist one or twice a day?

No bottom verm. I don't use bags but lots of people do.
Spray your casing until it's moist, put a bag over the tub and let it recolonize.
Then yeah, expose to room air and mist heavily about once a day or as needed to replace lost moisture.

Don't cover the holes, cover the hole tub with a bag. Not sealed, just put it over like covering a bird cage.
Not too much verm, just enough to cover the top evenly.
