Splitting cakes an advantage?
    #1622338 - 06/09/03 11:42 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I read the Sea of Shrooms tek, which recommended cutting the cake in half to double shroom production. I am using half-pint rice flour cakes. Can anyone confirm an increase in production using this method? Thanks.

My friend hasn't done it but he has read that it does increase the yeild due to increased surface area.....Makes sense I guess!

Doesn't the amount and type of substrate material control the total yield more than splitting the cake? I would also like to know if anyone has had any experience with this tek...

I split my cakes my first grow. More shrooms fruited but they didn't grow as big. Then after 3 flushes, I turn the cakes upside down and they flush another 3 times.

It's alright.

Splitting the cakes will increase your yeild per flush but most likely you will end up with smaller shrooms and fewer flushes.

Splitting the cakes might stall the mycelium. So if you decide to split, have a little patience with the mycelium growing and pinning.

This is 1/3 of a cake sliced horizontally then placed in the corner of a giant 3x2x2' casing.  It did put out more than just this one fruit.  This one ended up being 30 or 40 wet g's.
:cool:

Awesome longshot! How do you keep the cake from toppling over :wink: ?

Actually I do not grow anything but Bamboo. (and some thriving house plants!)
All of the shroom pics are from this one asshole down the street. He doesnt have internet access. I on the other hand run at usually 1.3-1.6mb/s, gotta love that broadband! So he always comes over and bugs me. Fuck I hate him! Usually I agree to help him out with his ?'s and he goes away.
He smells funny.
But that is an interesting question about toppling. It seems that the larger ones are more sturdy as they have a larger diameter base.

Spliting the cakes does not increase yeild. What you end up with is lots of small shrooms. I found them to be way smaller then off of normal cakes.
