PICS Perlite vs, Verm cakes
    #1315347 - 02/17/03 08:50 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

At first my dog was very surprised. His perlite cake pinned, just pinned and then lost out with a nasty contam My dog discarded the contamed cake, and being the loyal beast he is, posted pics in the contam forum. So he put a nice fully colonized verm cake in. He said it grew greatly, he also put another perlite cake in in hopes of growth. In the END.....

The verm cake was quicker and had an average grow. Then the underdog which was growing nothing but what seemed aborts took off. (This is the perlite cake) It has some very odd looking mushrooms, or so, my dog tells me. He says one is curled around and in an "upside down position". Yet this cake has x2 the mushrooms tahn the verm cake. Taking into account he made a few adjustments to his ter. (This could make the difference :smile: ) here are the pics................. If anyone wants him to get another of the perlite cake in the morning let him know :wink:





Verm on the left on both of these wait until my dog will  post pics of the right side fruited :smile:

Oh yeah and another Hobby, Imports, dogs love them :smile: (baby bottle)


Edit:pics

Road,

They were the Ecuadorian strain. The cake took ages to colonize approx. 60 days. It did blow the hell outta verm cakes, yeild wise.

This is very good for people that can't get ahold of verm.
Even though the colonization time is hella long.

What was the yeild off each cake per flush?

Road,

My dog can't give weights as he doesn't have a scale, but he can tell you the first flush was very close to double the first flush of a verm cake. I'll send the dog to get a scale 2morrow in order to produce better data, but I can tell you it DOES work :smile:

I am interested in your yeilds to see if you are really getting as much as you think you are.
Anything over 8 to 9 grams dried is great off a cake.

Road, I will dry and get exact data for you on this. Even though my dog ate 4 of the larger ones. I could post a pic of the drying chamber, but I dont know if it would be relevant seeing some wet some dry.

Pitdawg, I assume you still mixed the perlite with brf. Is this right?
