leaving mycelium alone for 2 days?
    #25321100 - 07/11/18 08:23 PM (2 months, 9 days ago)

about 2 weeks ago I started fruiting in my tub (first-time grower btw) with a ratio of 1:4, I've been misting fanning etc 4 to 3 times a day and I'm now seeing pins grow, the problem is I'm leaving for the weekend (Saturday and Sunday) and my question is "is it ok to leave them?" if so how? sorry for the noob question, loving the forums thanks all!

It is a good idea to even stop misting once they start pinning, so even if you left for 7 days they would be all good, healthy and ready for you to pick em up when you come back, so 2 days would be alright! :thumbup:

thanks for the response, so should I leave the light on or off? and should I close the lid or keep it ajar for the 2 days, thanks again!

It depends on what kind of tub you're using. ideally you want a tub set up to allow for a decent amount of fresh air exchange without losing too much humidity. It can take a bit of practice to dial it in but if I had a tub that wasn't dialed in and I had to leave it for two days I would keep the lid on as long as it's not air tight or anything. I believe a lack of fresh air exchange is better than drying out your tub.
As for the light I can't remember if full light or full darkness is better than the other. I want to say leave the light on but I would wait for someone else to chime in on that.

I basically don't touch my monos from the moment I spawn.

Of course if this is your first time you'll be nervous.

Does the tub have holes in it?

Fanning and misting should be totally unnecessary if you have things dialed in.

Do you not get a nice layer of water droplets on the surface without misting?

thanks for the response all, no the tub has no holes, i went for the most simple and safest route and the tub itself is a 14 qt plastic tub from Walmart, I don't believe the lid itself-makes it airtight and yes there is a fine dew over the mycelium, only the pins are growing from the sides of the tub not the top for some reason,
