Are you seriously thinking of buying a Martha type setup? If not check out some threads on the Single/Double Tub tek. You'll save 70% of the cost, 75% of the effort, and yields will be very impressive.

I know. I pulled 9.2 dry ounces out of my first flush of Puerto Ricans using this tek. Don't waste the money if you don't have to.

I'm sorry if I'm not much help here. I just want to make sure you have all of the facts to make an informed decision.  :wink:

you just layer the bottom of the tub like you would any other tray? i'm somewhat confused, isn't it just asking for contams with that much space? i've got 60+ gallon tubs free, i'd like to try this when the jars are finished.

what about aircirculation? and misting, do you just open and mist?

hmm, i take that back, a link to the tek would be appreciated. i've found some stuff in the archives, not an official tek though.

I think people are throwing the "Martha" name around to imply the use of a greenhouse, closet, hanging closet, and the like.

I am in the process of documenting the tek in detail for the terrarium section, so there are only threads available for now.

Read this thread and it should help you get started.

Here is what you do with the tubs once they are filled:
Spawn Run= Nothing
Post Casing= Nothing
Harvest

That's it. No misting and no fanning. The bottom layer is actually a trash bag, on top of that would be the spawned horse manure, and finally the casing layer when appropriate.

Contaminates are always a concern when you have this much area for growth. That's why you only open the tub to case after your spawn run. Beyond that, the tub says closed until your harvest. Common sense will eliminate a lot of problems in the end. Example, I spray Lysol in the air prior to casing and wait for it to settle. The poly-fill will keep out the Lysol directly, so mutants aren't a problem.

I went from this:



To this:




In just 3 1/2 short weeks. Thanks to Single/Double Tub!

You would be correct sir. My inference was that "Martha" seems to have become a generic term for "automated".

Ahh.. As I understood it, there are a few auto-teks, the single/double tub, which I will refer to as the Augustin from now on :wink:, and the cheapy mini-greenhouse tek, which is the Martha..

wow, impressive. well i'm still doing brf cakes, i haven't got time yet this summer to come up with anything else. could i still mimic that by crumbling the cakes in a tub half/quarter that size, and then adding the casing layer. i was just going to do 50/50 verm/peat

is the polyfill there for air exchange? how's that work if there isn't a fan blowing air through?

what type of screen is that on top? hmm, neat stuff.

that would work though by just crumbling cakes in it and making it like the typical casing, right?

Yes, you can case BRF cakes.. But it needs air exchange! You'll have to fan it a minimum of 1 preferably more times per day..

Dung has more nutrients.. BRF cakes typically grow fewer, smaller, and weaker shrooms than Poo..

Thanks Kalix, but I can't possibly take credit for this tek. I learned this from eatualive, Iamthewalrus, and others. I've been pretty outspoken about it, but only because I know it works.

My contribution to the others that have pioneered this effective, yet simple tek, is to document it for everyone to use in a clear and concise manner.

Keep your eyes out folks, it's coming soon.

i think i'll also refer to the sing tub tek as "THE AUGUSTIN7 TEK" that is a very impressive flush!
