First Monotub questions
    #25135083 - 04/13/18 10:28 AM (3 years, 1 month ago)



This is first tub and I was curious if I shouldn’t be seeing condensation on the walls of the tub? I followed Franks Hpoo substrate tek and feel like I had proper field capacity since I was able to squeeze a few drops of liquid out when I compressed it in my hand. Is it just that the tub is so fresh(only 24hrs old) that it’s just growing and producing enough heat quite yet? Someone ease my mind or tell me wtf to do please

So does your tub have the lid that just "clicks" to know that it's as closed as it's going to get? Or do you have latches?

The reason I ask is that while many, many people get good grows with the "click down" opaque lids, I personally have trouble with them losing too much moisture. I hate the dang things, tbh. If it's a click down style lid, I'm going to fetch a friend that grows with them all the time and will know for sure.

What are your temps in the room?

After 24 hours, you should be seeing condensation. At least that's what I always see.

And just an fyi, you don't need to tape the bottom of your tub. :smile:

Room temp is in the upper 60’s and it’s a sterlite 64qt latching kid that I cut the center out of and siliconed a piece of plexiglass to it. Should I start misting it to make certain my humidity stay up?

I see some condensation on say maybe the two or three inches just above the substrate level

Yeah. You can't push the river. Let it do what it does. Have faith in the process.
