First Monotub - is this ok?
    #25617584 - 11/16/18 12:39 AM (2 years, 3 months ago)

I have 5qts grain spawn and a batch of coir/verm substrate mixed up in a monotub with a liner.  Right now the liner is folded over the surface and I am wondering:

Is it OK during spawn run/colonization to have a sheet of plastic over the surface?

Is it better to take the trash bag liner and trim it back so the surface gets more air?



(the whole thing is in a typical 66qt monotub with 6 polyfilled holes.)

Why do you wanna put a sheet of plastic over it? Just restricts GE and FAE

I just have the liner folded over. I thought you want to minimize fae during colonization.  I had some dubtubs fruit before colonizing and I thought it might be because too much oxygen available.  I will just trim the liner when I get home if that's not nessisary.

NO you don't want to restrict air flow to much. You want gas exchange to occur. TRIM that plastic, it can fuck this up.

Definitely trim it! Air exposure is good :grin:
