3 weeks no pins. My monotubs are dying! Please help!!!
    #25247888 - 06/04/18 01:25 PM (2 years, 10 months ago)

Hey all! So it has been almost 3 weeks since my monotubs have been 100% colonized and I still can't see any signs of pinset development. In fact, it looks like the mycelium is dying slowly.

Once the substrate got colonized in put my monotubs under 12/12 6500k LED light strips. Room temperature. I mist and fan my monotubs 2 times a day, as I work 12 hours a day, so I only can fan in the morning and late evening. I have been doing this for 3 weeks and still cannot see any signs on pins!

Im I doing something wrong? Any Ideas how to kickstart the pinset? Maybe coldshock? Is it possible that horse manure I'm using is not suitable? (added fungicides) How do I know if the substrate is not too dry? The substrate (horse manure, vermiculite and gypsum) was pasteurized for one hour, when I took a handful of it and squeezed there were few drops of water dripping down. I think the moisture was fine. By the way, I did not use the casing layer.

Please see the photos, and if you can, give some advise, as I'm really frustrated...

How long are you fanning? You are drying out the surface.

A properly dialed monotub doesn't to be fanned, its a set and forget process until fruits are ready to be picked.

Please read these threads carefully and thoroughly.

good advice. she's trying to knot up but looking really dry. you know your sub isn't too wet by doing what you did, checking field capacity before spawning the tub. i'd get her surface condition primed a la the second tek posted above and then dial her in a la the first and let her sit. only adjust the poly until you get satisfying dry rings around the lower holes and a nice fresh air strip moving down from the top holes. don't mist again unless you see the beads of moisture disappearing and don't fan anymore.

what type of cube a you running?

Surface looks dry. Doubt its thirsty. 8.4 pounds of water(1gal) doesn't disappear during colonization.

Do you have any bottom holes? The poly looks like I could be tight. No dry rings around them

Don't wanna say this won't work but that unbodified tub tek is fool proof really. I did it on my first shot. 0 experience and it pinned exactly when the tek said it would. Expecting to harvest any day now. I know this isn't any help to you know but just an idea for future grows.
