You gotta try cakes(pictures)
    #3272569 - 10/24/04 08:29 PM (9 years, 10 months ago)

I know I've been making a case for cakes recently(no pun intended), and here's the reason why. I know you can grow more shrooms by far using casing. Cakes do take up a lot of space in the terrarium, especially when they grow well.

Just want to give an incentive for newbies to try PF tek.

You gotta really love the visual effect of cakes. Second flush, 2nd cake harvested out of 10 GT cakes.


Cake #2 flush #2


Different angle


Harvested at 126g wet from cake #2. First flush was even 130, so about same so far. There is a noticeably larger amount of bruising at harvest than first flush.

I know, I know... if you want a lot of shrooms, you need to case.

Also, keep in mind that my cakes are from 270ml jars not 1/2 pint. about 40ml difference between the two.

Anyways... I posted my pics, so I want some feedbacks. It seems every time I post something, no one pays any attention. If I don't get some feedbacks, I'll just keep to myself from now on. (good way to shut me up, huh?)

sorry for whining... but I'm still a n00b, too, you know.

Yeah, simply awesome.

Question, how long does it take for the shrooms to grow from like what I have in my pics(basically pins around 1/2" long), to what you have?

My jars are barely bigger than 1/2 pint jars.  The difference is almost neglegible.  Just think of them like 1/2pint jars.

And yeah.  I dunked/coldshock for 20 hours at slightly above freezing.  My fridge is fair cold.

I only double ended case.  I didn't roll.  But I did sit them on top of about 1/2" thick layer of Wet(really really wet) vermiculite.  And I made sure that verm layer on top was moist and bottom completely drenched after pinning.  They soak up a lot of water.

But I do advise against wet verm on the bottom...  I've had no contamination, and with clean freak wife, I haven't seen mold for over 6 month in the house.  Food left in pots rust the pots before anything grows in the house...

Anyways, I'm sure everyone can duplicate nice cakes.  Just matter of listening to advices and conforming to ideals. :wink:

Good Luck!

Sam

One more thing...  these cakes are yielding about same as my casing.  That is cake for cake.  3 cake casing made some nice sized ones, though.  But still about the same cake for cake.

I can't even believe that many shrooms are growing off single cakes. Amazing! Do you wait to birth until you see pins in the jars, or do you take them out as soon as they are done colonizing?

Cakes were colonized in 8 days, dunked on 10th day from inoculation.  And in the PMP on 11th.  No invitro.  Just straight up what Hyphae, Magash, Scatmanrav and I advise everyone to do. :wink:
