One bag of Mycrotopia WBS was inoculated with B+ spores, spawned to a mix of Mycrotopia's donkey doo/soaked straw/pet bedding. Put in a tub with holes drilled in bottom and sides.

Colonized over a 2 week period of time.

Then cased with dry straw so it could be watered.

Pinned 5 days later.

B+ fruits were picked as they matured, to allow for a more continuous flushing of the substrate.

This is an outdoor monotub of about 2.5 inches substrate depth, kept inside a shed, so watering occurred when no condensation appeared on sides or lid.

Weather was kickin' along great, last 3 weeks have been drought like conditions. I'm glad I went this route with the donkey doo, 2 other donkey subs I had straight outdoors in beds triched, then dried to a bone.

I'm building some deeper, donkey doo tubs here shortly, I really like these tubs for outdoors.

The donkey doo is one quick colonizer as far as poo substrates I've experimented with. :thumbup:
But, I noticed a gnat problem in the tub when harvesting some fruits. Will they be a burden, or should I let them be? They aren't destroying any fruitbodies so far, but I still don't like them flying around in there.

Good idea hip, they'd line nice against the top of the lid.

Oh, I didn't put up pics of the tub when building. I'll load those in a minute.

The only thing indoors, was the inoculation of the wbs Mycrotopia bag, and the bag colonization......the rest was like stated above.......I confuse even myself.

Damn, how did I miss this one?

Very nice, Freaky!

I do love the B+...such a giver...

And throw a sticky trap/fly paper in there. Let those damned gnats make/find their own magic!

:) Thanks BB!!!!! I tried the fly paper and it seems to be helping.


Here are a couple more pics.

Its got a bad green spot, I'm pretty sad about that. No doubt it came from the straw on top :( Oh well, maybe it'll throw a few more before I toss it out.
