Holy shit Mad! It must be dry as fuck where you are!
I don't need to mist at all until after I've opened my tub up a bit!
Pastywhyte's default setup for his easy MP dialed monos really does all the work for me.
I'm using that, along with not fruiting at spawn, as the backbone of the future demonstration.
It makes hydration as easy as possible and is a perfect reference point weather someone prefers to have evaporation as a pinning trigger or not.
(Although climate may throw a wrench or two here and there)
Appreciate the kind words. Still gotta iron out the kinks

I also experienced, that it's easier to Maintain a good Surface moisture, when you don't fruit at spawning.


And thank you to your answers, I hope I wont do anything wrong :smile:

It looks a little distressed in comparison to last time but should be okay. Possibly due to the manual fanning and extreme cycle of drying out and rehydrating.
I see knotting along the edges so that's a good sign but can't really tell from the picture if it's hydrated or not.

threw it away guys, got a light sour smell :smile:

I'll going to start the next mono in a few minutes, this time with micropore tape. My dry house does not allow me to dial it in right wih Poly :smile:

Yeah, I thought so too, but if I think back, the spawn was a bit suspicious.

I noticed that when I shook my spawn right now before spawning into CVG, the rye berries separated from each other very easily. This wasn't that easy with the rye berries of the tub on the picture. So maybe the spawn was the fault for this sour smell.

I think this Tub will be better now, it looks really good and is now in colonization mode with a small pseudo-casing of CVG :smile:

Regards

I never dump monos until I see mold.  Now we'll never know lol

My goal is to attain this surface moisture without ever misting.  Some combination of fruiting late, packing polyfil tight, waiting for beads, then loosening out polyfil/removing top polyfil seems to be getting pretty good surface moisture for me.

I also run a humidifier in the grow room at 60% RH to create a more humid envronment in the grow-room.  Easier to fill up a 1 gallon jug every 2 days than to constantly be looking at when to mist.



Here's that tub coming along CBK

I do wonder what's lurking beneath that patch with no pins...

Lookin good Dill
It is a bit odd that they're not pinning that spot though you're right. The conditions are consistent across the whole tub too :shrug:
I'm still guessing mold but nothing has popped up yet. Fingers crossed!

Yeah, I also was waiting for mold to come but nothing happened. Actually I live in Small Students Apartment and I can't risk to have mold spores flying around Here. So I throw stuff away a Bit early maybe.

Whatever, it's shit genetic anyway, had a tub with the Same genetic that didnt fruit after 30days of fruitung :laugh:

I had a tray that smelled like dirty socks and it fruited like a boss.  Never molded.  Got 4 flushes out of it.  Sometimes you never know.  The myc can handle a little bacteria.

great info here. I always worries about to much moisture on my subs with all the beading. I'll keep this in mind when trying to dial in the monos.

i think its useful and people always ask about 'should i fruit' so i bumped the thread for others
who didnt see it.

also to upload a pic.

this is what your 100% colonized substrates should look before fruiting. these had no misting.
