Hello, a quick question.
    #1399209 - 03/21/03 08:13 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hello, A friend of a friend of mine has decided to get into growing mushrooms. his first attempt failed using one of those crappy shroom bags so he decided to make his own cakes. The cakes are almost fully colonized and he's not sure if he wants to birth them and just grow off the cakes or crumble/cut them up and use the casing method, what would you guys recommend he do? this is his first real attempt.

He was also wondering if it was possible to get a few flushes off the cakes then crumble/cut them up and make a big casing bed out of his terrarium(sp?). would that work do you think? he was thinking if that worked it would be a nice way to get alot more out of his investment and make it last longer before the mushrooms stop spawning.

any replies will be much appreciated =)

thanks for your time, this is an awsome website and i'm sure my friends friend will come back here on a regular basis ;-)

If this is his first try I would go with fruiting the cakes. Also if not all of the nutrients are drained then maybe you can get one or so more flushes from a casing.

Thanks =) hopefully after everything is said and done he'll be able to provide some pics for yas to put an eyeball on

yeah man, do it!


seriously tho, cakes are considered easier but I've never been able to make them pin (granted I only attempted it with one of my cakes) I just went strait to casing, its not hard & you'll likely get 25% more than with a cake

use either the 50/50 vermiculite/peatmoss casing (with a little crushed oyster shell if you like) or the 60/40 vermiculite/coco coir (most people's prefered)

go here for stuff on casing

i see says the blind man, lol my friends friend didn't even think of casing a few and trying the rest as cakes. I beleive thats what he'll most likely end up doing to see which he likes best. Well i know teh local walmart has peatmoss and oyster shell, not so sure about teh coco coir tho. i'll have to put an eyeball on it this weekend =)

thanks for teh replys and info, much appericated =)
