Single or Double Tubs?
    #4556246 - 08/19/05 07:41 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I just ran across the teks on single and double tubs and although I assume the single tubs would be better in my case, I better ask. I bought 10 18 gallon tubs that are roughly 27" long, 16" wide and 17" tall. Common sense tells me that 10 of these single tubs would be better by themselves as far as efficiency/yield goes than using them as 5 "double tub" terrariums. Am I right? Also, I don't understand how these things work so well with minimal contams. I mean, its not like you can spawn your jars with your substrate in anything other than open air. I will be running two HEPA purifiers in my room and I'll have masks to cover my mouth but I'm kinda worried about contams.

Will sterile substrate, casing material, contam free jars, alcohol, and lysol along with the HEPA purifiers be good enough for this method? I can't imagine building a glove box or flow hood big enough to fit these tubs in along with jars, substrate, etc. also.

You should be fine as far as sterility goes, do you have latex gloves to wear though???

As far as the tubs go; If you are wanting to do single tub as your method how do you plan to keep humidity up along with air exchange? Double tub is a good method also and that automatically takes care of the air exchange for you.

I do have latex gloves. I was under the impression that the single tub can work just like the double tub. I can't remember where I saw it posted but someone put 8 holes (4 just above casing layer, 4 just below the top) on a 72 quart (18 gallon) tub with a clear plastic window fixed to the lid so that the shrooms can be seen. It was basically the same thing but without the tub on top. I know that the extra tub on top adds a shit load more air volume but I'm wondering if it is necessary. Will the humidity/air exchange not be sufficient in a single tub set-up? Bear in mind that if the top of the casing was only 5" up I'd still have 12" for air to exchange. Then again if I used double tubs the air space would be 29". Is 12" of air space in the tub enough to keep humidy and air exchange like it needs to be?

Yessir I did check that out. 5-10 oz. dry per flush in one of those things sounds pretty inviting to me. I think I'll just do the double tub thing and not worry about single tubs.

A friend of mine was only using 19 Qt tubs with a sub depth of 3.5 in and still getting 1.5 oz dry. Of course that was w/ poo. Oh yeah he did a single and a double side by side and the weight for both of them was about the same. It seemed like the single produced bigger fruits but the double produced a little less in numbers but they seemed to be denser. Try both and see what you like. GL, Peace!
