How many of you guys run exotics in just un modified tubs? I figure semp and mexicana could run fairly well since they are closest to cube parameters. It's very interesting how this community has evolved over time. I would love to get information out there on how to run a few tubs as simple as possible and yield a far greater product! Show us your mycoporn and rain down your knowledge

Either search out thebj donoe go to the Semperviva thread and ask about CaptainFuture’s tub setup. It’s simple I know, but I sonMr know the simple details. Several others have the info straight from him and are actively using it.

Checkout https://mycotopia.ne...-grow-tutorial/ which is on the first page of this forum right now. Pretty simple setup just adds a 12v computer fan, blue leds, and air pump.

 

Another simple setup https://mycotopia.ne...=+chicon +nindo from here which is just a tote, air pump, humidifier and later adds blue leds. The before / after difference with blue LED's made me a believer and I've used them for cubes as well as mexicanas ever since.

 

The primary theme is that these prefer a bit more fresh air then cubes so the addition of a fan / air pump is common. I believe everyone uses light for their grows just maybe not specifically blue spectrum. There are some publications showing preferred morphological traits when using blue LED that can be found like https://www.ncbi.nlm...les/PMC3627973/

Thank you for the reply. I'm probably going the shadowbox route. I am just seeing if anyone here just runs straight monos with sucess

Wow that was full of autocorrect. The captain future tub is 4 holes fanned once a day I believe. I’ve seen Galindoi in unmodified mono recently. The Semperviva thread has a variety of tub designs. Archetype I believe has the biggest yield for Semperviva in a straight mono. I don’t know for certain. That thread has a lot of traffic from successful growers that don’t often post outside of that thread.

I don't see a reason why straight monos would not work. Just a bit more hands on TLC required for the extra FAE and misting. I'm not up to speed on the semperviva thread Jrotten mentions.
