First, you will need to prepare the monotub for the colonization process. Cover all the holes with tape.
Second, break up your fully colonized spawn bag.
Third, layer your fully colonized spawn bag and bulk substrate in the Monotub close the lid. Place the tub in a warm place (77 to 82 degrees) for about 14 days to fully colonize.
Fourth, After 14 days prepare the monotub to fruit. Remove all the tape from each hole and replace with polyfil. Then, crack the lid and put the monotub next to a place that gets natural sunlight. But, DO NOT PUT IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT. This will kill the mycelium.
Fifth, twice or three times a day mist and fan your mushrooms.
Sixth, after about 5 to 9 days it will be time to harvest. Clean a knife and cut each mushroom at the base and ENJOY!
In this video you will see a mushroom, mycelium, petri dish time-lapse compilation.
In this video I show you how to grow mushrooms from start to finish in a monotub.
