Casing with spent cakes?
    #1517414 - 05/03/03 01:04 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)


I have never cased before and I want to try this, because yields on cakes are too low. Can you use spent cakes with casing? If you use the 1/2 Peat Moss 1/2 Vermiculite will it have enough nutrients to begine fruiting again or would you have to colonize new cakes?

The best use for a spent cake is to spawn bulk. Casing a spent cake would be a waste of time.

Casing spent cakes is a complete waste of time.
If your cake stops flushing...why do you think it would flush again if you case it?
There is no nutrients in casing material.

And spawning a spent cake and expecting anything is like pissing in the wind.
You might miss or you might not.

It's much better to spawn new substrate than spent substrate.

good luck!
