Adding things to pf cakes
    #11200528 - 10/07/09 03:03 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Hello every one so I am still on pf cakes as I do not own a PC at this time. So I decided to start adding different things to my cakes.

A word of warning DO NOT add ironite to your cakes. During the stylization process the steam from the cakes burned the fuck out of my eyes and lungs. Also gave me a wicked nose bleed. Also the grow was a complete fail. ( could have been the print it self but  :shrug:  I will try just using water i soak with ironite some time soon).

So here is my 2 latest attempts

1/2 of cup of brown rice flour from a bag
1/2 cup of brown rice flour I chopped up  ( I left this a bit more grainy to allow for greater fluffiness. )
1/3 cup of weekend espresso  ( around half strength or less)
a little less then 2/3 cup water
2 cup verm.

Now towards the end of filling up my jars I started to run out of substrate. So I grabbed some coir I had laying around got it up to field capacity and threw it in there. 

Now  here are some photos of the ones with coffee in them seem to be doing better then the ones with out. Also the ones with coir are kicking ass too ( some of the ones with coir seem a bit wet maybe next time I should drain it more)

this is from 12 days since I noc them.

The ones with just espresso


The ones with  espresso and coir


I cant wait to fruit them to see if three is any prominence difference.

that all will work but it is mostly watering down the nutrishion in the jars. that is all for bulk subs. BRF has 10 times more nutrishon than the stuff you put in

not saying bad or wont work just saying there is more nutrishion in BRF than adding that stuff. colonize your jars like normal then spawn to a bulk sub and you will be much happyer with the results

I have spawned to coir a few times. I think that my substrate was not thick enough.

Could the weekend espresso help though? I added it as liquid. The growth seems very strong. Since I replaced water with espresso would that add nutritions?

The main reason I'm not doing bulk is its harder to hide and Im move in 2 months with my slum lord showing the place in a few weeks.

sorry to say it but mr feelfunny is one hundred percent correct.
what your doing has been done before. it just doesnt work as well. brf and grains have the highest nutrients.
using anything else in your spawn is just a waste of space in your jars.

How thick do you make your coir bulk? feelfunny??

As I said guys I was running Low on my substrate and added some coir to bulk it up.

I dont understand how adding Liquid half strength espresso would take up any space in my jars but ok.

Using liquid coffee in brf cakes is fine.  Other bulk substrate ingredients such as coffee grinds and/or coir might help speed up colonization by making the substrate fluffier, but won't improve fruiting performance.  Another boost to pf cakes can be had by adding a tablespoon of gypsum to each cup of brown rice flour.  An even greater improvement can be obtained by using rice bran instead of rice flour.
