using cakes, new and old
    #1467999 - 04/17/03 06:39 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

This dude I heard about has an old PF cake that he got two flushes out of, its growing new mycelium and still smells okay, but he hasn't gotten a third pinest in over 2 weeks. Could he use this as spawn for bulk substrate? He's heard of washing the outside of a cake, how does one do this? In "PSiLO187's Simple Bulk Spawn Production Tek" it talked about PCing colonized substrate and making myco water with it, could he do this? Could he throw little hunks of it directly into grain, w/ or w/o boiling it first? he also has a jar that is taking forever to colonize the last tiny spot in its jar. Could he do any of this with that cake?

The dude is very interested in bulk substrates, but hasn't really found one that suits him super well. He's thinking about combining aspects of different teks, like psilo's, but with wbs instead of straw. Any suggestions?

If you really want to go bulk, I'd give your cake a peroxide soak (1 part water, 1 part 3% peroxide), grind, and spawn :smile:

I've really come to trust 6T's advice, so you may want to try spawning compost.

I only suggest the soak to kill any spores, either mushroom or other, that may be on the cake surface.

Of course, you don't really need to soak; just a suggestion.
