monotub questions?
    #8803803 - 08/21/08 02:37 AM (9 years, 11 months ago)

I have about 11 jars of WBS knocked up and some that are at about 80 percent others at 50 percent.  I plan on using monotubes with straw and hpoo but i have a few questions.

1. how many tubes should i use and what sizes?
2. how much horse poo and straw do i use when i mix it with the mycellium?

thank for your help!

1:3 spawn to substrate ratio... most peeps just throw in 4 inches of substrate and 1 inch of spawn, mix it up, then throw a little spawn spread over top to create a contam barrier.

17 to 35 gallon tubs are the norm, I'd just buy one and fill it yourself to find out how much of everything you'll need, just make sure to keep track of how much it takes to fill up each tub. Then do some calculations based on how much spawn and sub you have left, and buy as many tubs as you need to finish the job.

spawn ratio is 1;3 or 1:4. As said above. But I usually layed the spawn/substrate.

Robanero sports a nice calculator in his signature for your spawn to substrate ratios...

This didn't quite work for me, because best laid plans go south all the time.

For example, you start off with 8pts of grain...keep 1 a virgin for control. so noc up 7pts...even so, they shouldn't be full, so you really don't have 7pts. Now...4 of those contam for one reason or the other...now you have 3pts.

I am planning on getting a common list of tub sizes and making a reverse calculator...meaning, you put in how much spawn you have ie 3pts or 5qts what have you...you also specify the depth you want and ratio, because you should know what you want...then the calculator, I hope, will then provide you a shopping list of possible tubs to go buy.

Hope that makes sense...you may be able to do this manually yourself...that's what I did...3-4pts = 7qts substrate = 4inches in the bottom of a 20qt sterlite.

Best of luck!

Ive been using a monotub type setup for the last few months and seeing nice results.  I use one pound spawn bags to speed up colonization.  I transfer this to 5lbs of hpoo in a 64QT container bought at Wally World.  Before I transfer it all, I drill eight holes into it.  I've found four to be much to little and it doesn't seem to produce as heavy without sufficient air flow.  Two on top, one on each short side and two on the long sides.  If you feel this is too much, keep your sliced out circles and tape em over and seal.

I drill the bottom of the holes to line up 2.2 inches from the bottom of the container.  With 5 pnds of hpoo with the one pound of WBS, it makes up roughly an inch spread out.  I then case with another 3/4 to 1 in casing layer all around.  Yield = significant.

im using dehydrated horse poo does that make the ratio different?

your ratio is not based on dry weight, but volume...as long as your dehydrated hpoo is broken up and fluffed up it shouldn't be any different. Adding water to field capacity shouldn't affect volume much either, but keep that in mind too.
