All good to lid flip the unmodified tub and go fishing for a week?
    #25288835 - 06/24/18 09:48 AM (2 years, 8 months ago)

I'm at day 6 (Day 7 now), things are colonizing nicely, I hope. I was thinking of flipping the lid as it seems to fit well inside the wide range of 50%-90% colonized. I will be gone for a week.

All good to lid flip and go fishing for a week?



Is this ~80%?

I personally would feel apprehensive leaving the tub alone for that long. Can you take a photo of the inside?

So long as conditions are suitable, I think you'd be back just in time... is the light on a timer? Still, I'd have a hard time relaxing lol

Idk what does the tek say.
You're capable of making a guess as to how colonized your tub is.

Depends on how fast your subs dry out? Mine evap too fast to flip lid and leave for a week. You might come back to spore-losion, might come back to a dried out brick of coir and myc.

Might come back to some hidden mold that has had a week to expand without interruption....

Could come home to a tree fallen into your grow area! Any chance of taking it with you?

Yes, I figure I'm in the parameters of proper colonization pre lid flip. None the less, lid flipping coupled with going fishing is an intimidating prospect to someone new to mono's. It's good to gain some perspective, with possible natural disasters such as mold outbreaks and fallen trees which have boosted my confidence in lid flipping.

BTW, I'm always curious as to what people see 80% as, I'm guessing it has as much perceptive variance from person to person and falls into 50-90% range, hence the suggestion of Bodhi's tek of 50-90%.

Thanks

I personally think you're in good shape: good vibes and loads of fish your way! I judge "colonization percentage" based on a visual difference between white and dark matter... 80% of what you see is white at 80%... Maybe I'm over simplifying, but seeing as some of these guys spawn straight to fruiting conditions, you should be golden

Taking it with you is a terrible idea. Mobile drug labs are a terrible idea in general.

OP, you should be fine. If you can keep temps around 65F or lower that will probably slow them enough so you won't have spores everywhere but you should be OK anyway.

Please give us an update when you get back. I am also on my first tubs and would like to know how hands on I will need to be when I get to your stage.

Everyone's situation is different and unique you need to develop judgement one way or another. Tubs are very little work

Back from fishing. Day 14. No contamination, fallen trees, or mass sporulation. I think I see pins forming, albeit a bit slow. I might have mixed on the wetter side, or perhaps my strains running slow.

I think that your corners are about to turn green. That looks pretty white.

Jeez, I certainly hope not! The corners are like that on the other tub as well, perhaps a bit of overlay from a humidity differential. I have two strains that are new that I'm comparing, so not sure how they colonize and fruit. I hope there's no hitchhikers.

It does look potentially trichy.  Take a look subsurface through the sides of the tub in those corners to see if any green is developing.  If not, just keep an eye on it...
