'Bulk' substrate in small cakes?
    #1515492 - 05/02/03 06:34 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Hey everyone, quick question:
I always thought bulk substrates like straw were best for making BIG grows, cause they can be pasteurized and are better for contams.
Recently I heard about a grower mixing spawn into pasteruized straw and then packing it into small, PF cake sized jars. What would be the advantage of doing this over normal PF cakes?

He probably doesn't use them like cakes. With this method you leave the substrate in the jar and case it. I made my first grow like this. :cool:
