almost soiled myself (50 gallon mono) (fruiting, pics)*Ûpdätêd*
    #16053371 - 04/06/12 05:59 PM (5 years, 6 months ago)

just got back from lowes, I was planning on buying 2 more tubs for mono's.
and I saw it a 50 gal tub
18.16 x 21.81 x 43.81"

it is by far the largest tub I have ever seen!

I'm sorry if these are old news I haven't been down that isle in a while, I have always "inherited" my tubs

I am about to go see how many quarts its going to take, then decide what ratio and such

I just had to tell someone.

-----edits and updates below-----

Actual bulk sub consists of:
12-13 quarts coir
6 quarts vermiculite
2 quarts sphagnum
10 quarts of GT spawn
8.5 quarts water
---------
4/22/12 - initiating fruiting



----------
4/26/12 mass knotting initiation


-----------
5/3/12

Other than for novelty reasons (just to say you did it) why would anyone want to use a tub that big? It's like putting all your eggs in one basket, so to speak. What happens if the mean green pays you a visit? You lose the whole damn thing.

its ok I have a lot of spawn and ill be doing a dozen or so g2g's in a few and I have spawn that has been consolidating for over a month and spare jars and enough spore prints to last a lifetime.

when I saw it I had to have it, ill admit that went through my head but I feel confident.

thanks, hopefully be updating with some pics in a few weeks .

about to get to pasteurizing and bore some holes.

I'm thinking I should use 8 holes .
6 on the sides at sub level and 2 on the ends below the handles.

or should I do 4 low 2 high on the sides and 2 high on the ends - staggered holes.

Not sure why, but I think I would have paid to watch you soil yourself in middle of the aisle in a Lowe's.

Gl with your grow

haha I bet the cashier was wondering why I was so happy to buy a tub, I know I was grinning from ear to ear.

as soon as I saw it I drug the whole stack in to the middle of the isle so I could check the dimensions.

if it works out I should only have to run it every few months to supply me and my friends needs.

the general consensus seems to be 4-6"(or atleast I have seen TL say it many times) from what I gather, I'm still new to bulk but I'm loving it so far.

I have one of these sitting in my attic right now. I originally thought about using it for bulk but then i just decided to use a martha setup. Good luck though, I'll be excited to read your follow up.

Check around on this forum.  I remember seeing someone do a 50 gallon mono a couple years ago.

And yeah, it looked like you would think it would.  And a successful grow on top of that.

I mean, if you have the space and resources, then why not try it?

3-4" for myself :2cents: 
I'd not recommend going over 4" but to each their own.

I'm mostly posting to keep updated on this giant project. :hehehe:

50 gallon....you think that is big? I seem to recall (maybe I dreamed this) someone on the forum did a kiddie pool grow. They filled the whole damn thing! I can't remember how it worked out for them.

that's awsome I would love to see that!
I'm not trying to break any new ground I had every intention to buy 2 normal tubs,but things don't always go to plan.

I'm currently waiting on the last 10 quarts of sub to cool then I will be mixing in the spawn .
