Low yields
    #1443924 - 04/09/03 07:30 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

My friend wanted me to ask a question about low yields. He's using 2 brf cakes on verm casing. His recent first flush yielded him 29.2 wet grams. Anyone have any idea why the yield was so low? Thanks

Because BRF cakes suck. Try casing them or moving on to grains and poo.

He did case, with verm.

BRF does suck, but your 2nd flush will be better :smile:

That would depend on a lot of things, but you are better off casing IMO.

two major factors affecting yield
aside from substrate are:

1. air exchange

co2 buildup can lead to few, short, skinny,
generally disappointing mushrooms

2. availability of moisture in substrate

mushrooms are +/-90% water, to support
a large, healthy flush, you're going to
need to make sure that there is plenty
of it available in the substrate.

try dunking your cakes before casing
or other means of rehydration before
and between flushes.
