I have an unmodified monotub going now, spawned 14 days ago. Seems to have stalled now, been a few days. Spawn ratio wasnt what I had hope for, 1:4/5. Sub is coir/verm +... Initially I jus thought I would have to wait longer for full colonization but it really seems like it isnt gonna progress further. First monotub/bulk grow so I have no experience here.

 

Should I just start to fan the tub and hope it starts fruiting? Thanks everyone!

That is what my tub looks like right now, colonizing much slower than I am used to... If you opened up the tub to take that picture then there has been some FAE. That is a pretty low spawn ratio, but I would maybe fan once then put the lid back on and wait a couple days and see if anything changes. What strain are you working with?

This strain is Blue Magnolia; multispore to WBS.

I've opened it a couple times now, first time was on day 10 and its been about 4 days since and It doesnt seem to be going any further now.

I had one do the same thing. I broke it up, put a casing layer on it and put into fruiting conditions. It actually fruited some nice fruits but I also had some fruit on the bottom side. Maybe put a casing layer on it without breaking up the mycelium like I did.

Sometimes a tub will switch from veg mode to fruiting mode. When is does it can appear like it stalled. I am betting a print from that tub for one of mine that's what it's doing. Pins in a few days.

Damion5050's Elementary Coir Tek except I used a cooler instead of a bucket.

I had less spawn so I didnt use all of the sub, was about a quart or more of sub leftover.

The spawn and substrate were mixed below a final casing layer.

 

@coorsmikey, you'll be the first to receive any prints if this thing comes through!

the subs a bit low spawn to sub ratio, half as many inoculation points, they all have to merge with the rest this will take twice as long to colonize vs. say 1:2 ratio. sub thickness will also play a role, anything over 3" and it's a waiting game, it still has the middle to colonize

Little update on this. Seems like it is still colonizing although VERY slow. Was able to detect this glacial growth by taking pictures every couple days at the same angle and flipping through them lol... Spawn ratio was way too low, sub was too deep and I probably shouldnt have added any casing. Its a waiting game as wharfrat put it.

 

I've got 6 new quarts of White Teacher spawn jus about ready to go. I wont be making these mistakes again I hope! lol

That tub is looking sweet now! Must of been just a little less spawn in that corner, that happens to me sometimes if I make tubs impatiently, or if I don’t scrape out the corners good enough while mixing. Glad it turned around for ya tho, very nice.
