Hey Pasty!

What would be your hole settings for a 31qt tub that is 14.5" long, 12" wide and 10.5" tall?
I've been trying to calculate it according to your original post. I'm guessing the total area of the holes (top and sub level) and the number of them must be proportional to the volume of the tub.
(Sorry for the metric system ahead.)
So far I came up with drilling 6 5mm holes or 8 4mm holes at the bottom and 2 clusters of 4 5mm holes at the top. That's about as close I can get to the original proportions.
What did you think of this?

Thanks.

I have a question. I have 5 of these tubs going right now. If the sub was drying out because of too much FAE, how many/which holes would you tape off?

I'm thinking of the 2 in the middle on the long sides? Or do I choke off the air at the top holes?

I was misting but now I have pins coming in. Can I mist pins? Sorry, I realize this is a newb question but I have seen conflicting information.

You should post a pic. Be sure there are no fans or excessive air movement in the room. If you haven’t drilled the optional holes then I would look at taping up two of the holes on the hole clusters on the short sides.

So you drill 3 holes on the long side, on each side and 5 holes uptop on each short side?
Sorry if that was clear in the OP but it didnt see it...

I'm assuming that the type of tub u use .makes a big difference because I followed this tek except I used 3/8th inch holes and my tub was still way too wet and I ended up with pseudomonas bacteria.

I was using the gasket tubs like bod uses.  I ended up flipping the lid in attempt to rectify the problem and sub dried put quick.

Thinking I'm just gonna tape up the holes one by one until shits right with the flipped lid.

Yes there are 3 holes on the long sides evenly spaced, and it does say you need a 66qt tub.

Thank you! So the tubs are getting messier by the day. Here is what they look like now:




My buddy was trying to look for side/bottom pins and had an oops on this one:







Yellow lines? I think this may just be lighting, verifying with my buddy. (grow is not in my house, at his house)




All along I had this feeling like there just was not enough condensation. I squeeze tested the substrate. 2-5 drops came out when squeezing really hard.

And I don't want to talk about the 5th bucket. Experiment gone wrong :frown:

The good news is that those all are looking okay. It’s a little dry but not dead. Hit it with a mist to get a few more beads of water on the surface. Then for the next project work on getting the field capacity up.

And just for the record you CAN mist cubensis pins. So no need to do anything funky trying to avoid the pins while you're taking care of your substrate.

I love you guys. Thank you for taking the time to help me out, I really appreciate it.

I watched the "let's grow mushrooms" field capacity video and a few others and shot for that, but in my gut it still didn't feel right. Should have listened to my gut. Being a newb I try to listen to the gurus though :tongue2:

I will up the moisture content a bit next time! Thanks again! I'll keep everyone up to date on this harvest and the next. I bet you the next one is going to be great :smile: Working out all the kinks with this grow.

I'm talking about the lid though, my tub is only slightly smaller but it has a gasket on the lid.

I'm assuming that the imperfect lid helps alot with air exchange too.

Finally had time to make one. I only had one spare tub that was a mini.





So are people spawning, leaving as is then just let it fruit. Or are you covering the holes with tape during colonization? I’d Rather not use tape.

No tape here, might have to add a couple more holes to get proper fae in my damp cold garage space but the ones I made like this are all starting to fruit or pin RN so we will see, just spawned another 10 so I hope they work as is.

Not using tape is the best part about this tek IMO, but if you need it for colonization I bet painters tape would be the cheapest and easiest to remove..

I’ve never used tape during colonization and don’t plan to. Thanks for the info.

I see what you mean, his with the purple latches look like the ones that just clamp down the lid with no gasket.
