Increasing crop yield
    #1080014 - 11/23/02 08:40 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I have started my jars using the PF tek (first time and after 7 days jars are colonizing very well! I am suprised I have gotten this far considering I made the print and the syringe) but had to use 1 pint jars because I could not find the 1/2 pint size. My question is would it be worthwhile to cut the cakes in half with a sterile knife after they birth? I understand that handleing the cakes excessively will harm them but could this possibly increase the crop yield with any significance? Would it be worth the risk to cut one or two (out of the five I have) and see the results? Like I said this my first attempt and I used a few of the adaptations to the tek. I inoculated only one site with 2.0cc per jar and I am using the larger jars. I had intended on using the "poor mans terrarium" consisting of the 2 liter soda bottles but have been playing with the idea of using the styrofoam cooler setup. Am i headed for disaster with the 1 pint cakes and such a small terrarium or do i need to use the cooler?

Thanks for any feedback

What kind of humidity considerations do i need to make to use the rubbermaid container? You do mean the sweaterbox type, long length and short hight? The cooler terrarium uses a drip shield and hand spraying. Does the damp perlite alone provide sufficient humidity throughout the fruiting stages? I have read many of the posts here and I see that most of you use the large containers and "sheets" of substrate. I am not familiar with this method but it seems much more prone to contamination than the PF. How much more labor intensive/foolproof is this method over the PF? I work 40 a week so consant attention throughout the day is impossible.
