I just made my Monotub and want to grow gourmets/medicinals
    #26446565 - 01/22/20 05:22 PM (1 year, 1 month ago)

Hi there.  I hear that it is difficult to grow gourmets in a monotub.  I have a bin with seven 2 inch holes in it, one of which has a fan in it that is on a timer, can have it on off as much as I like (currently set to 5 minutes running each hour).

I also have it humidity controlled to stay between 85 and 90%.

I hope to grow many different mushrooms, currently i have spawn for lionsmane, blue oyster, and turkey tail.

Will these be ok in these conditions? What else can i grow that will be ok in my monotub?

If you want any real success with Lion's Mane or Oysters you will need the fan on 24/7 - at least. And then if your fan CFM is too low you will need a faster fan. And even if the specs say your fan CFM is OK.. be prepared for it not to be fast enough. Not sure about Turkey Tail as I have never grown them. The Blue Oysters will need light for color. If the cool Blue coloring matters to you. Or just keep it cold like low 60's to 50's for coloring. If you don't care about coloring then don't worry about it. You will need some light though either way. But with your fan you are not really doing a monotub, per se, more like a MarthaTub or Mini-Martha. And you may come into problems with that low of humidity for LM. LM needs a boat load of humidity. And with that many holes in your tub and NEEDING to pump in a boat load of fresh air in and out of there  you WILL run into mold problems the room your fruiting chamber is in because of the high humidity that will also get pumped out during the air exchange as well, being maintained. The tons of FAE needed WILL add constant humidity to the room your fruiting chamber is in unless you do something about it.

And Don't forget you really need to pump the spores from the Oysters directly outside because they release a ton of spores and can cause what is called Spore Lung which is an allergic reaction that can happen because of the ton of spores, etc. You can search about it on Shroomery for more info.

Some things to think about for ya. :cheers:

I would not bother attempting oysters or lion's mane in a monotub.  The turkey tails might work.  King oysters would work well but only kings.  Pioppino/black poplar should work. 

Reishi works great in monotubs as well

Have some medicinal mushrooms and want to get the most out of them?  Try this double extraction method.

Yea the amount of conversion modifications needed to get it to work as I started to list( BLEH :crazy2: ) and then to grow in such a small space  for such a small return in your investment :crying: Run a martha, no stealth needed. :thumbup: You will already basically need to spend the amount of money to convert the small space to work anyways.. Cause like everyone has said a monotub won't work for Oysters and LM. It won't give you enough fresh air.
