First Mono
    #15056734 - 09/10/11 06:14 AM (9 years, 7 months ago)

I'll be inoculating my first set of jars tomorrow. Trouble is I haven't decided on how many tubs I should do. I can do my own research [though tips would be nice (you probably know how anxious I am)] but was wondering what some more experienced growers would suggest as an all-around grow size for a beginner. I'm not afraid to put a lot of time and attention into it, but I'm sure there's limits. Ones that I'm not really aware of.

So how many standard mono-tubs do you think can be handled without becoming overwhelmed. This is by a first time grower keep in mind.

Maybe I'll just go with 2, but it seems like a bigger project would increase both my probability of success and the experience I gain.

Obviously there is no set in stone answer, is grow-size even an issue to you guys?

If you're growing for yourself & friends, there's no reason to go beyond 2-3 monotubs even if you factor in a pretty high failure rate.  7-10 jars will easily be enough for 2-3 monotubs depending on size.  I use 50-66 qt tubs and generally use anywhere from 2-4 quarts per tub.

You didn't tell us how many jars you plan to inoculate or what kind of jars.  There's no need to decide on the number of trays/tubs to use until you know how much healthy spawn you have.

Whatever the amount, for a beginner I'd definitely recommend to spread that spawn out and not put all of your eggs in one or two baskets.  For instance if you're starting with 10 quart jars of WBS, I'd recommend making five tubs, 2 quarts per tub.  In you're interested in gaining experience and increasing probability of success, this is the route I would take.  (In fact I still do).

This seems to be the general opinion. I can't help but ask myself why.

That's my problem. I'm going out to pick up my local materials in a few hours, and I need to decide on how many tubs, so i know how many jars and how much wbs. I only have like $110 to my name, an have to be kinda frugal atm.

I suppose I'll just grow out 2 tubs. :shrug:

Also, I have 20 ml of spore solution, so at most we're talking 20 quarts/4-5 tubs
