Why would you do only half a cake? This doesnt make any sense. If you can do a half cake, you can do a full cake.

Just put your whole cakes in a SGFC and be good.

This is a rather odd question.

I've never heard of a 1/2 cake, perhaps as a different term, maybe. I've never used the PF tek myself, but from the reading I've done it seems you wouldn't have to case a cake to get it to fruit, though it would be a good primer to move onto casing. Treat any cake, no matter the size, as a cake. Size shouldn't have a major impact unless you get really, really, REALLY small or the inverse, really, really large.

I say birth them onto some perlite as per normal. No need to get super technical in the beginning unless you wish to become discouraged rather quickly.

Please provide a link to where you read that.

When you first start out everyone wants more/bigger/potent shrooms. Dont buy into any of that. Just stick to the Tek, you'll get plenty for your own personal use.

ive been hear quite a while and never have i heard of half cakes.

I know people have done grows using 1/4 pint jars, which is kind of half a 1/2 pint cake. but in no way does it produce more than a 1/2 pint cake.

I have heard of 1/4 cakes performing slightly better in terms of how much food is availible, just like 1/2 pints perform better than full pints.

your best bet though is to stick to time tested methods. follow the pf tek at

www.mushroomvideos.com

it performs wonderfully. infact pf cakes really do work great when yoiu understand what they need.

Before i stopped growing i was fruiting pf cakes in 2 litre coke bottles with verm in the bottom and they were producing 50 fresh per flush.

Oh I came upon a thread similar to that a bit ago. It said cut the cakes in half (destroy the links of the mycellium) and roll it in verm, place them separately and you will magically get the same amount as a whole cake on both half ones.

yet no one is doing it.

ive never heard or tried it, but i think if it was really true. Youd be seeing it here all the time.

this sounds something that came from an inexperienced grower who tried something and got lucky with his ginetics, and posted claiming it was his method.

Sclerotia had been around for YEARS and suddenly over the past 3 years people started messing with them. They don't always take the best, latest info. I'm not sure what that's all about, but it wouldn't surprise me if here were a better tek than everyone is using. That's common place here.
