Need the most outta what i have
    #1491625 - 04/25/03 02:05 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I followed the pf tek, i lost 2 cakes. both to water getting in the jar during sterilzing. so i have only 2 completely colonized cakes to work with, i'm gonna be following the 40/60 with verm and coir tek. i just wanted to know how i could get the most outta these 2 cakes. would it be worth it to make 2 small casings or one casing outta the 2? the thing is i don't wanna put all my apples in one basket man, cos that will suck if i were to lose it to contam, but also i want as big of flushes as i could get from it

Here is a friends personal experience. Birth the cakes, take spore prints, and start over again. It sounds like you are a beginner, so if you make a casing and it gets contam, then you have nothing. If you birth the cakes and take a few spore prints, then you will have lots of spores to try over and over again. Make sure you put Reynolds wrap under the lid when you sterilize the substrate, it will keep the water out. When you make the spore prints make sure you have a glove box. They are real cheap to make. My friend made one for 4 dollars.

damn... i thank you guys for the help and all, but your not answering my question with what i have to work with... only 40/60 casing material, i don't have access to poo or anything else at this moment, just verm and coir... i'm about to make the casings today and just want to know if i'd get better results outta a 2 cake casing or if i made two small casings

no make some lazy mofo bags... you'll love it. you'll end up getting ten jars worth of substrate with that... then you spawn some poo!

i'd make 2 casings. you can always take a small piece of mycelium thats stuck to the side of your jar and put that in some sterile dextrose or karo solution. you could make 10-15 syringes with that solution, after it grows a little bit in there. read the dextrose/mycelial syringe teks. i don't see any in the FAQ. try mycotopia or nansnook. they got alot of information on turning 2 cakes into hundreds of cakes.

I'm just a newb myself but it seems to me that making two casings would make sence if you want to protect one if the other get contams.

other than that alls I can say is do what the other guys were saying and try again. I don't think I understand your urgency in having to have alot right now.

Again that's really none of my bizz

i never said i needed a lot, all i'm sayin is if it would be more likely to get a BETTER, not necesarily bigger yeild from 2 cakes in a casing rather than one i'd want to do that... thats allllll i mean by that, damn

dood it really don't matter. your working with the same amount of substrate either way. like you said "all apples in one basket". two one cake casings, and one two cake casing is the same yeild in my opinion. but you can make hundreds of jars with a little tiny sliver of rhizo thats stuck to the inside of your jar, using the mycelial syringe teks.

The only reason I can see for making a two cake casing is that it could colonize quicker and fruit sooner.

Then again I may be wrong. Newb and all.

trust me do eatualive's lazymofo bag tek... you won't regret it. It sounds risky but it isn't soon you'll have so much to work with you won't know what to do with it all, and it will only take like five more days to colonize a shitload of substrate.
