Casing question
    #1368473 - 03/12/03 09:16 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

This question must have been answered already, but the search feature is down right now, and I need to find out quick. Does casing really produce more? If so, does the number of cakes in a case, and the size of the case make a difference? Thanks.

Not that it will neccessarily produce more, since number of fruits really depend on the amount of nutrients in the substrate, but casing provides the ideal micro climate to produce an abundant flush. In my opinion, its much better and easier to do than straight cakes. So to answer your next question, the more cakes in a casing the more fruits. but again, all of that depends on the integrity of the casing and fruiting chamber setup and the risk of contams over time with a large casing. Try it out in a small container until you feel comfortable with how a healthy casing looks, smells, behaves and what effect all of this has on your fruits. Im not trying to dis cakes, if properly done right you can produce relatively the same number of fruits as you would a casing, its just so tedious and so much shit is bound to happen but thats just from my experience

Yes, of course. However deep the substrate is, the casing should be roughly 1/4 this depth.

A friend of said to me he'll never go back to cakes, because casing is just so much easier to get good consistent results.
