First bulk sub... need input,
    #9853884 - 02/24/09 02:18 AM (12 years, 13 days ago)

Info: MS Alacabenzi
BULK SUB: Coir, vermiculite, spent coffee, gypsum.
22QT monotub
I used a 1:6 ration spawn to bulk.

I am well on my way now to having a fruitful experience. I was just wondering if my bulk is colonized enough. It was layered and that was approx. a week ago.

It really has taken hold. I was wondering when i should start misting, and also when I should put into fruiting conditions ie 12/12... here is my first bulk monotub grow:

Im hopeful.

P.S.  I wanted to post this not just for the help but to show the "nay-sayers" that im not all talk.

Looks pretty good. Still looks like there's a few patches that need to finish up before misting IMO.

true, that's cool man you don't have to prove anything to us.


It's looking good so far. If you don't see anymore sub* that is needing to be colonized I usually let my monotubs sit for a couple days after that and then induce it into fruiting conditions :laugh:

Do not deny the classical approach, simply as a reaction, or you will have created another pattern and trapped yourself there.

looks nice.. w monotubs I usually like using spawn at a greater ratio like 1:3.. love faster colonization times.. IMO its the easiest way to increase your chances of success

alright well its fully colonized now, and i will wait three days, next question is this: 

Do I wait until I put the tub in fruiting conditions before I mist?

Its uber dry here in the midwest right now and i dont want to risk it drying out. I know people are going to say mist only if it seems dry... and yes i know. But my question is WHEN is it okay to mist, i mean can i mist it while its still colonizing? and whats this i hear about adding some peroxide to distilled water for misting?

input is appreciated oppa!
