Best FC For Bulk Growing
    #14918794 - 08/14/11 03:46 AM (9 years, 8 months ago)

So i got some extra cash and i really trying to go the bulk route
and im wonder which Fruiting Chamber would best suite my needs.
i got about 250-350$ i still gotta go buy a PC and a make a Glovebox
maybe even a couple tubs with a thermostat fish tank heater in  between water to incubate at 84 degrees.

I would really like to have everything planned out before i just start buying stuff. At first i was think i should buy a 4 tier green house. Use a humidifier and fill each tier with spawn and substrate grows.

Now im thinking why not keep it simple and use a glove box and multiply my spawn with G2G and just buy a couple Rubbermaid's and do the Double Tub Tek?

I would really appreciate other peoples thoughts on this.
Going bulk should i go martha or double tub?

Also its gonna be getting cold where i live soon so i hope that wont
mess up my chances of have any success...

Greenhouses are cheap. You'd want a humidifier of some sort as well to go with it as you mentioned. Could always surf craigslist for your humidifier on the cheap too.

http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&sugexp=bvec&cp=7&gs_id=i&xhr=t&q=mini+greenhouse&safe=off&gs_upl=&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.&biw=1366&bih=589&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=16455706035192755771&sa=X&ei=0X5HTs-BEdSgsQKBj7iSCA&sqi=2&ved=0CF8Q8wIwAA

Incubating at 84 degrees sounds a little crazy for me. I prefer low to mid 70's to avoid any chance at contams.

Understandable but you didn't do anything to help the OP out either so it seems as though it was your intention. :shrug:

Growing with martha's is pretty easy but if you are trying to keep it on a budget stick to a montub or dubtub. You wont have to buy a 40$+ green house or a 30$ humidifier.

Id say pass on the Tub in tub incubator as well. Your jars will colonize just fine at room temp. Keep cost low here as well by not getting a 40 dollar heater and 15 or 20 bucks worth of tubs just for that.

People here are going to tell you to go with the PF Tek to begin with, but I did just fine starting with a martha than doing tubs.

Buy a tub for a glove box (~8$)
12 quart jars (~10)
Rye (Save money and get a big bag at a feed store, here they are ~23$ for 56 lbs)
Tubs for mono/dubtub (~8$ ea)
Syringe w/ spores (~18$)
Lysol (~4$)
Sterile Gloves (~6$ for 50 pair box)
Polyfil, depending on tek (~4$)
Isopropyl (~3$)
Paper Towels for cleaning your tubs (~3$)
Presto PC (~60-79 depending on size)

Pick what tek you are going to go with, but a noob friendly and very simple one is Damions bucket tek. If you go this route you will need:

5 Gallon Bucket (~3$)
Coco Coir Brick (~3-4$ a brick or ~8$ for a 3 pack)
Vermiculite (Depends on bag size but as little as ~4$)
Gypsum (~5$)
Its pretty late but I think I named most things you need. So that comes out to about 160 to 180$ to get something going for decent bulk.

Oh you will also need filters for your jars which are pretty cheap.

If i missed something someone will chime in and answer or tell you to use the search engine. Never understood how people could have thousands of posts of saying just that. Hope this helps.

Good luck man :thumbup:

well i gave him a link. Either way, my advice to you tip, is to try some small scale grows before you get into bulk. Even if you do decide to go into bulk. BE PATIENT.

Hopefully the OP can come back some time in the next few days and let us know where he's at skill wise in this hobby.

Then we can go from there.

Freespores pick 4 syringes
RogerRabbit Rye tek
Damion Coir tek
Damion monotub design

The only way I will grow.


--------------------
LxWxH in inches then multiply .55 (the amount of fl oz in a square inch) then divide that number by 128 (the amount of fl oz in a gallon) to get an accurate amount of volume for the space.

Just to let you guys know i already have successful tried a pftek once. I have been surfing these forums off and on for a couple years just never made an account or had the money to invest into a new hobby and i dont see how hard it can be? actually seems very simple. in fact growing good quality marijuana seems to be alot harder.
Also i have been searching religiously for good deals and information.
Ive watched RR's videos which were a huge help. I think i would be confident enough to isolate a strain on agar even without a laminar
flow hood and actually i hope to do so. but i think im going to go ahead with the monotub only thing im worried about is temperature. i live pretty far north close to the canadian border.. but im sure i will find a way to regulate that.


LOL W4E2E0D  thanks for the shopping list helps alot
but i think im going to buy an extra 12pk of quart jars
just have a feeling imma need them. also what about the alcohol?
dont really think i need a lamp i think ill just use a shot glass or something...

Damion505 coir tek is called - Elementary Coir Tek
and he doesnt specify how he makes his monotubs but you can see them in his coir tek.

RR rye is in his lets grow mushroom videos

I would try each and see what works best for ya. That's what I'm doing! I did start out with cakes. I'm doing my second grow right now in a GH and I just picked up 4 tubs to do mono's in. I'm using poo in the GH and I'm prolly gonna go with Damions coir tek but with a 1.1 ratio.

You could also think of it like this with the bulk thing. My 4 tier could hold 8 large bus tubs. They come in 5 and 7 in. My sub is 4" deep and cased. 8 large tubs like this would be more than enough for you and some friends to have many weekends of good times.:crazy2:

With monos I look at each mono to be the same as 1 bus tub. Therefore I would need 8 mono's to equal my GH. I'm doing 4 stack and views.

My best piece of advice would be to read up as much as you can by searching threads. The people and knowledge on here are the best. Hell, I'm still a noob, it just depends how dedicated you are. I've learned sooo much in such a short period of time by reading up on these threads.

Good luck bro!:thumbup:      here's a lil snapshot about 3 days ago. It's even crazier now!

Instead of buying 4 syringes, unless they are all different strains, you should look into G2G, very easy way to expand your spawn.
