double tub question
    #4506357 - 08/07/05 10:08 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

i'm thinking about using a double tub for my next grow. I was wondering if anyone had tried it with the larger 25 gallon tubs.
I have one 25 gallon tub (its not clear) and was planning on getting a clear one to use for the top (can you get a clear tub this big?)

Instead of filling the entire bottom of the tub with substrate (that would make for one gigantic cake!) i plan on using opaque shoebox sized containers to make caseings and lining the bottom with them so i can have a more modular design and take out caseings that are finished/contaminated and replace them with ones that are ready to fruit (i'd incubate them elsewhere)
could this work?
would i need to add more humidity or anything in a chamber this big?
would opening it up to pick shrooms from one caseing disrupt the environment inside for the other caseings that are not as far along?
just throwing this out there
thanks for your input :thumbup:

would it be better to just use the one tub i have, cut holes in the lid for light, polyfill stuffed holes in the sides for air , and use perlite on the bottom for humidity (i have airstones and a pump)?

it can work but you'll need to experiment at the store for tubs that will fit
inside the larger one, and 25gallons isnt that large so finding one in clear
that size shouldnt be a problem.

by double tub i mean when you put the second tub upside down on top of the other tub, not inside like a TiT. just clarifying

I was refering to the smaller casing tubs for the modular design

I think that double tubs work because of the massive damp straw in the substrate to provide the relative humidity in there... but since you said your gona add perlite... it might work... just make sure all the holes are filled with polyfil for contams. :smile:and yes i single tub might suit you better.. but then you would be cutting out the essence of a double tub it would turn out like just having a single tub with cased trays in the bottom. I say if your gona do double tubs do it, how it should be done first, then experiment after you know the theory behind it. good luck :smile:
