OK. Im thinking 50/50 coir and worm castings..Whats a good ratio of that sub to the spawn?

1 part spawn to 2 parts sub or 1:2. I have done 1:4 with no diffrence in yields but did not colonoze as quickly which is ok for me. If you steralize your substrate instead of pasteurizing your substrate then a higher spawn ratio is ideal IMO because speed becomes more important unless you have established a great technique and know what works for you.

Great. So 2 quarts spawn to 8 quarts pasteurized sub...so 10 qts total. What size tub leaves enough room for fruits? Also still confused on either mono or dub.. Thanks for all the help :) also those jars are recovering nicely after the shakedown..nice and fuzzy again

working on the bale ,but only growing a few shoebox's @ a time.

V333 yes 10 qt's total.

the difference between a mono and dub is this.

a mono tub is larger , deep enough to have say 4" of substrate and enough
head room ( say 8" + ) to fruit.

a dubtub is 2 tubs one with the colonized substrate and 1 for headroom.

there are pics on here of both. I can post a dubtub pic  yet to fruit is absolutely needed.

333, I wrote that wrong above. I meant I could post a pic of a tub that has not fruited yet.

yes there are great pics on here of both types of tubs, covered with shrooms.

I am kind of lazy about taking and posting pics.

I would be worried about getting that out, personally I would shake it every 3 days to stop it from becoming solid and not being able to get it out of the jar

No Do not keep shaking. Shake it one last time before you spawn to break it up. Everytime you shake the jar the mycelium has to recover. This causes stress to the myc and will slow down the jar. If your not ready to spawn it when it is ready this toss it in the fridge.

OK. Im thinking 50/50 coir and worm castings..Whats a good ratio of that sub to the spawn?

I wouldn't go over 25% EWC.
