    Hi guys, I will do my first cropof psilocybin C and I don't know what spore would be ideal.
    I have a monotube for colonization and fruiting
    What spore do you recommend growing well in monotube conditions?

    So many to choose from
    :awetrip:

    Just about any fungi can be grown in them with a bit of tweaking to the method, we are just about to start Lions Mane and Cordyceps and we plan to do them in monotubs right next to the boomers

    :hatsoff:

    Have you narrowed down your choices any?

    Welcome on board

    thanks man. :b&b:
    how many degrees are required to be in colonization and how many are in fruiting?
    :dood:
    I have investigated that some require ventilation or fans after the primordia sprout, is this the case?

    75/to 80 on temps tho they will grow outside those temps.u can run a fan during fruiting are manually fan 1 are 2 times a day dealers choice. Both work well .

    I heard cordyceps @GGTBod! You'll have to make a grow log of those I wanted some soo bad those are crazy fungi! Welcome to your new life @fehu! If you are super new without any experience do what i did and get a all in one bag and get anytype of spore syringe of your liking and try it out... I only recommend that as you can watch and learn and all the "hard" work is already done for you, just be careful as some vendors are sloppy.
    Get a pressure cooker also! Get chubby!

    Aye first job is get a pressure cooker 22qt will do awesome (done us great for over a decade, when you need a bigger one it is cos your skills and product demand demanded it), it is a door to a thousand new skills and abilities in mycology

    The plan for cordyceps is to fruit in jars, like this dude does in this video below, I need to modify to my conditions, instead of a fruiting room or chamber, we will be doing 10 to 12 x 1qt jars per 70qt monotub, so creating micro-climates we can control inside tubs and fruting the jars in those



    the current plan is to do a full tutorial as we learn it kinda thing over multiple videos, just refitting the rooms now
