~Double Tub Tek~ Need To Know Info..Suggestions Please!
    #4299307 - 06/15/05 02:27 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, So it is now for sure that I will be doing the double tub tek to grow a nice amount of shroomies. I have done tons of reading on it and i think I have it all down but one thing that i have not seen and would really like is a step by step Tek.. yeah, i have seen the original posts on it and the problem is that so many people post that the thread is like 20 pages long and it is really hard to follow everything. Is there a complete tek on this that is short and to the point?

I found this one..
http://www.mushmush.nl/?page=home\method...olus_tropicalis

But do most do the inoculation of the substrate in the tub? Or would it be best to dump it into the 5 lb bags of Tenn-stud Hpoo and then somehow close them up and let them colonize in there like they do in the mushmush one? What is best... what should i do?

Also, I plan on doing multiple double tubs because i have the room and figure why not. I plan on putting about 5 lbs of Tenn-Stud Hpoo in each tub... Maybe more? What size tub should I get so that it fills the tub to about 3-4 inches... Whatever is best.

And what do you recommend for casing... I will do whatever seems to be the best method...

Thanks alot for all the help!!!

Also if anyone has any strain recommendations that would be good for the double tub let me know.. I just finished growing B+ and a Thai strain using PFtek.. B+ was a champ, I will probably go with them again but i plan on having a more then one double tub... maybe even 6 so I want to go with a few strains.. Let me know what you think!

I am currently working on detailing the Double/Single Tub teks for the terrarium section. I will have to list quite a bit of directions and take a ton of photos. Roadkill will be posting this as a permanent tek once it's complete and he approves the content.

First things first. The double tubs are used for everything except the initial incubation of the mycelium while the spores are germinating. Once the spores have germinated and the substrate is completely colonized, recommend using WBS, you spawn in the double tub.

The next steps are the most critical during the spawn. You need to make sure that during the spawn run you do absolutely nothing. Another step that is extremely important following casing of the colonized horse manure is that you need to do absolutely nothing.

Use clear containers so you can see the progress of the initial spawn and so you can see the shrooms growing when you begin fruiting.

Your tubs need to be in a room that has temps 68-74 degrees. If you have poor air circulation in this room, place a small fan to move the air around. Do not point the fan at the tub.

Your question for the size needed for 3-4 inches of substrate cannot be answered. Unless someone has gone through the motions of weighing the horse manure for every size out there, you will not know without experimenting.

It's pretty simple actually. Hydrate your manure, if not that way already, and start adding the manure to the container on a scale that has already been zeroed out with the container. Begin placing manure in the container until you have the depth you need, allowing for a casing layer of course. Record it. Now place the unused horse manure back into a container or bag for use the next time. Pasteurize if you want.

The casing mix I always use is the 50/50+ tek. I have always had great success with it. Check the ingredient list before committing to it though, as not all things may be available in you area.

Okay, strain. The cubensis strain that work best for this tek are, drum-roll please, all of them. There is not one strain in the cubensis family that will not cultivate using this method, period. I am going to prove her very soon that Pan Cyans can also be done this way.

I'm sorry if I'm not getting into a lot of detail here, so please feel free to ask more questions if you need to.

I will be diligently working on the documentation for the Double/Single Tub teks this weekend. Please note that this is not my tek, I simply know how to put it to good use and have had some awesome grows doing it. I'm also an anal bastard, so no stone will be left unturned during this documentation.

For those pioneers out there who help bring this tek to life, credit will be given where deserved. That much I can promise you.
