Double Tub Questions(the space between the sub and the top.etc,etc,)
    #3533048 - 12/22/04 09:17 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

I have one rubbermaid thats alot taller then my other sorter ones(I wish I knew how big they are .........Later I will have to multiply HxWxL to get V )

Anyway, how many Centimeters above the bulk sub like poo or poo/straw et does a person need????

I have one tall container that seems like it might be perfect once I flip over one of my small ones over and put it on top.

(I'm low on cash, yet RICH with spwan )

So I NEED to put it to use.


How much space?????

[------------]
[------------]
[------------] [------------]
[------------] [------------]

Large tub........Small tub (the small tub is a little more then half the size of the large tub)


Say someone uses 4-6 inches of sub in the bottom of a container, I assume on average if you add a tub of the exact same size on top, it should provide enough space.......hence double tubs.(why did I have to make something simple complicated )

Can some of you measure the space from the sub to the top of their double tubs??
To give me a general idea???

  Hey I don't know if that's just me but after reading your post 3 times in a row, I'm still wondering what the hell you want to do and if that little ascii drawing is actually bookshelves ...  :rolleyes:

 
  please pardon me if i'm a retard but, what's your main goal with those tubes?

No a fruiting chamber.

You know , like Eatu's double tubs??


The problem is I have 4-5 small tubs and one tall one.

So I want to know if sticking a small one on top will add up to enough air space??

Whats the average height from sub to top??

I guess you want to spawn the bulk in the smallest tub and convert the biggest one into a terrarium and put the small one into that to induce fruiting?

My first bulk grow ever with straw was with a similar setup. I used a milk crate with a garbage bag in it (you know, milk crates have holes) and another garbage bag over the straw with some holes in it for air exchange. Once fully colonized, I cased the bulk and took a big 18 gallons tub with perlite and put the milk crate into that. it wasn't touching the bottom of the big tube since the crate was a bit too large.
I just manually fanned a couple times daily and got a nice harvest.

Gave this :


I was actually happy with this first succesfull bulk grow !

Depending on what and how much substrate you have, moisture and fresh air will determine height needed for your mushrooms. The double tub technique proves that in a space big enough to harbor lots of fresh air, you can just sit it(doubletub_ somewhere and the culture would have enough fresh air to produce a flush.

Make sure you have big tubs. 16-24 inches above the sub should suffice.

I have grown bulk numerous times, but I would like to setup my next tub and just walk away, especially since its the holidays.

(and...I hear that while Eatu's double tub tek provides air exchange, its good to have a fan going in the same room to help the process)

Have you seen the double tubs???, the flushes are insane.  :smirk:

Isnt this a double post? Like 12 inches...just space for the shroomies to go. Less can work..

Hey Psilocybeingzz,

Check out http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Cat/0/Number/3026085/an/0/page/1 for the double tub tek. Scroll through to find the tek. It's the one I'm using but on a much bigger scale.

Here's what I'll be using:
