Crumble the cake into a trayand then case it with straight verm. What I do is mix the verm with water and h2o2. I squeeze the verm to get rid of the extra water/h2o2 and then crumble it over the crumbled cake. You might get lucky with it and get some shrooms.

Myself and a friend tried to grow mushrooms for the first time several months ago. We used 1 pint jars by accident and tightly packed substrate. We had to wait 3 months for complete colonization. After 3 months they fruited well out of the top of the jar and then were birthed and produced a few more mushrooms. We thought the mycellium would have died by then or dried out but apparently not.

I had some severe temp changes while my jars were colonizing... they took about twice as long (a little over two months) and never fully turned white... but I'm getting somewhat of a harvest... and they pinned nicely (PF's that took longer then my B+'s amazing~~!)
as long as you don't have contam go for it... casing (with as much stuff as you can get your hands on) might help "revive" them...
peace

I just did a jar that was four months old, read about it here:
http://www.shroomery.org/ubbnoncgi/Forum4/HTML/000818.html

It shouldn't pose a problem as long as it is not infected. Think about it, this is how myclellium surrives in the wild, it dehydrates itself as a defense mechanism, then grows when the rain comes. Take it easy, let us know how it goes.

I didn't realize it until I broke the cake apart that the substrate was really packed in tight in the jars. I need some bigger vermiculate. That's probably what made the colonization slow.

Anyways, the one surviving cake is now in a standard 50/50 casing, getting the water it probably wants. Wish me luck. Thanks for the encouraging words you guys.

You guys were right! I cased the cake SOS style in a tupperware thingy and its starting to colonize the casing layer already!

I kept the lid on it, so the gas exchange would remain low. I figured I'd want it to stay in the mycelium growth (vegetative?) stage. Once it perks back to life, I'll take the top off so it can fruit.

I birthed a thirteen week old one a few years ago and once it got started it was real good so age is almost certainly not a problem.
