First try at monotubs.
    #25891607 - 03/23/19 07:50 AM (2 months, 26 days ago)

So this is my first try at a monotub. This is my setup. I got 3 jars of golden T in the left one and 6 jars in my right one(Cambodian). I have two Cambodian jars not fully colonized and 4 GT. They are 95% done. I also have two spawn bags of PE6. No signs of mycelium but it's only been 4 days. I have a single setting fan running. My question is should I do a 12/12 light cycle?

12/12 is fine. But it dont have to be followed strictly. With mine, the light gets turned on when ever my wife decides to wake up. So my loghts are on more like 10 hours a day or less

That un-even sub is making me squirm.  But yeah 12/12 with a 6500k bulb or sunlight.  I honestly don’t think lighting matters as much as most do.

So the bulb that's in it is led. It doesn't create heat.
-so I need to get a 26w 6500cfl?
-Also should I mist sides of tub while colonizing the tub?
- is it to late to level out the tub?

Are those cakes or grains upside down?  If the GE hole is down, its gonna get wet and nasty.  Also those subs look super thick and uneven, but hard to tell when there isn't a reference to size.

They are uneven. I did it yesterday. Is it ok to level it out? Or should I just leave it be to reduce contam risk?

I use 6500k fluorescent bulbs, works just fine for me.  And ignore it for 7-10 days to let it colonize/consolidate.  And nah leave it be, you don’t want to further delay the time it’ll take to fully colonize.  Spawning grain to coir or manure isn’t a sterile procedure, the majority of contaminations at this stage are due to dirty spawn.  Good luck man and keep me updated!

How long till I see myc in the spawn bags? It's been 5 days and no sign. I know it took about that long for jars but I did squirt it on the sides and the bag I did in middle.

If you used an MS syringe it’s gonna take a little while. I’ve seen growth at one to 2.5 weeks. You should really consider getting into agar, I promise you won’t regret it.

I really am looking forward to using agar. I want to try agar>agar agar>grain & grain >grain. I don't have a PC yet. That's my only issue. I will be getting a 24qt canner this weekend I hope.
Q#1?- the bigger monotub doesn't have condensation on sides (besides where sub/spawn is. Should I mist sides? The little mono has water droplets building up inside of it.
Q#2- there is water building on the lid and will eventually drop onto sub. Is this ok?
Thx family. NFA

Q1) Yes, mist the sides. It doesn't hurt to bump the humidity up. Even if the surface looks dry, give it a light mist.

Q2) That won't be a problem. It's not going to rain hell. Most of them won't even drip.

What do I fill spray bottle with? Tap water, distilled water, or bottle spring water? Put peroxide in water?

The blue top is GT and condensation
The other is Cambodian and has no condensation on walls.

I turned my fan In there off. There isn't a point to have it on yet right? I'm not fruiting yet. They are still colonizing. And what's perfect temp? I have it at 70. The only heat source is reptile heating pad on the floor. Thx for all the help with my newbishness.

Just update. I seen myc in my grain bags on day 7. Just few grains here and there. Excited to see it. I use Ms so after doing so much research I guess contam risk is exceptionally higher. My monos are doing grate. I covered Cambodian with duct tape over the micropore and it's started condensation. All is well.

Pour the excess water out of a corner if needed and/or dab up any pools with a paper towel

Fruiting at spawn by flipping the lid is the way to go.  Try not to overthink this, you can hurt your grows by trying to be too involved in the process.  Just follow the tek and you'll be set
