    #1359792 - 03/09/03 08:37 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

ive had some cakes fruiting in little terrariums for 2 weeks with right conditions but they aint pinning so im gnna case them even though its my first time growing

im gonna use just vermiculite, any special way i have to crumble the cakes and spread or antyhign? im not gonna sterilize the vermiculite because i read that its non nutritive so it wont attract contams

peace

don't case cakes that have been sitting in an unsterile enviroment for 2 weeks. i can almost guarentee you will end up with contams. also it is always a good idea to pasturize anything you're gonna use for a casing. i have had unpasturized verm contam many times. so stick with cakes till you get some success. you say you have the right conditions but thats hard to believe if they haven't pinned in 2 weeks. check temp, humidity, air exchange, and if the cakes are blue you need to dunk them. if things are proper the cakes should have a bit of fuzzy mycelium and possibly hyphal knots if its about to pin.

heres an idea for ya. cakes tend to do much better when they have a moist layer of verm under them and a bit on top of them. you can look in the tek section for "double ended casing (maybe its cake) tek"

A few weeks ago my friend harvested the first flush from 4 Maz PF cakes. He noticed signs of contam on several of the cakes so he gave them a brief h2o/bleach dip. Afterwards, my friend waited for two weeks with no sign of further pinning. In frustration, he then gave gave the cakes an 8 hour dunk, sliced them up and cased them with coir/verm. Shortly thereafter he was rewarded with an AMAZING flush.  :laugh: :laugh:

Case those mofos!
