Monotub-more like side growth tub :p
    #25316111 - 07/09/18 04:23 AM (2 years, 9 months ago)

So im still having problems with geting them to grow in the center.  I put down some parchment paper and things seem to have gotten moving.  It looks dry in some spots but its soft to the touch so there’s moisture.  SHOULD I PUT MORE PARCHMENT PAPER to encourage pinning? 

Also the one i took out, seems like i did premature(with the cap size) but the stem looks great.  I took it out because it was a side growth and it couldnt keep itself up anymore.  Any tips on how to keep thefruit nice and stiff-like?

Soft to the touch is too dry. There should be beads of water all over the surface. That's why the top won't pin. The conditions are only good in the gaps in the side. Give this a read and it should help you out.

Looks like it wouldnt hurt to give them more light/FAE as well.

Thanks it really did help. I think i will add holes if i do this again.
In order to create this type of environtment, do you think i should seal the tub ? Its unmodified.  Im thinking that way it will trap the moisture inside..

an undmodified monotub could probably do with some holes in it so they get good FAE. Cut holes and stuff them with polyfill.

The parchment paper is suffocating the surface of the sub, that's why you're getting pins every where but the top. Lose the paper!

Also, an unmodified mono will work fine without holes (hence the "unmodified") if you need more FAE just flip the lid upside down. If you're losing moisture you may just have to mist it more.

Unmod tub already gets more fae than a traditional mono unless its top holes are completely open

The problem must be lack of moisture. Watering more often per day to see if it helps.
