Just be careful with stir bar size. I got some 2 inch ones and they seem a bit too big. The get thrown out of the magnetic field

I agree with you. Keeping the nutes slimmed down makes the strongest aggressive myc. Learned that from Workman.

Just wanted to add a side note. I’m assuming you haven’t had any issues with your stir plate advo. Not sure why I thought the 2in stir bar was a good buy. I obviously didn’t have any issues with the stir plate until I attempted to use the 2in bar though. I found an Apera 801 stirrer fairly cheap (with shipping it was the same price as the one we both have). This thing is a completely different level for sure. I would never knock a reliable and cost effective solution, but I didn’t realize how cheap it really was in comparison.
Just trying to pass on my experience with stir plates so far. Just in case anyone is interested.
Keep up the good work brother. This thread has been a big inspiration.

After I pour out the jars I’m gonna make my first LC strait from grain by squirting 60ml sterilized water into the bottom of the jar with the shmegma that’s caked in there give it a shake and draw that shit back up.

After a nice layer of beans I lay a smaller layer of substrate, thinner layer of beans, then lastly a medium layer of substrate. In total I never pass 3in. No casing. 3df43b03dba758b695158841a59f2f7d.jpgc662713233f36186554225fa4a18f776.jpg
Then into the tent directly to fruit.

How long usually before you see pins? Ive been letting my tubs colonize for 10 days, then putting to fruit. So from this step 14-15 days to pins. But I'm totally new so very curious!

It all depends on strain. And how close I am to a mono culture from it.(whole other topic.) In general no more than 7-10 days. These were done on the 10th. 1a3623ab2407f6d1d7d442935f700c0d.jpg9f52e9e153af90fb6edb7faee69262ee.jpg

I’ve heard “misting and fanning” since I began this adventure. I’m not sure If that’s literal or not, but I get way better results fanning then misting.”


Just ignore me I’m muttering nonsense.

A lot of people get into the over-misting trap. When I grow in shoeboxes I don't have to mist until the first flush.

I’ve been using shoe boxes a lot lately. There’s something to be said about that size and shape!!

They are great and really easy. Monotubs are such an all or nothing proposition. I really like how I can split the risks

with shoeboxes....and have space to grow more stuff.
