My plans for my next grow.........Houston we have pins
    #1739217 - 07/22/03 08:36 PM (14 years, 2 days ago)

Well I have dropped the idea of doing PF TEK cakes and fruiting them. I did 12 cakes, cased 3 with str8 verm, and fruited the other 9 with double end casing. Well its been 24 days since I birthed the cakes, and AM now just starting to get pins. Out of 9 cakes I have 2 pins on 1 cake. I just checked like 5 mins ago and noticed another one popped up out of nowhere from the same cake. So I have 3 pins on 1 cake the other 8 have no pins at all. I think they are just being stubborn but now maybe they are finally ready to grow some mushies. For my next grow I got 2 syringes from TLG Creeper and EQ. My plans for them since I dont want to use a TEK that is to involved, is I am going to do BRF cakes, And case them when they are done. MY plans for my casings are as follows. A bottom verm layer, then the crumbled cake son top, then jiffy mix as a casing layer. I figured I'd use jiffy mix since it is cheap and from what I have heard I do not need to do anything to it it's ready to go str8 out the bag, just pour it ontop. I think I will do a shit load of casing and maybe fruit the rest as plain cakes double end cased. So everyone wish me luck. Also if youd like to see pics of my pins on my 1 cake I will be posting them here in a 10 mins.

Ok here are the pics I just took them. Sorry for the shitty quality I got a webcam what do you expect. I also made a clear top for my rubbermaid tub cuz I was tired of fucking putting syran wrap on the bitch it gets messy. I'm ghetto so I didnt use plexiglass. I used one of those thick plastic bags that bedspreads come in. Cut out a sheet of it with a razor. Cut out a square on the lid with a knife that took fucking 20 mins, and then sealed it with some electric tape. It works great by the way. I was gonna seal it from the outside but i did the inside becuase it looks better. I dont think the humidity will make the tape come off. This electric tape is hardcore shit soon as you put it on its impossible to get off. Anyways here are the pics.

Well I only have 3 pins on 1 cake, I'm hoping all the other will finally pin. Thank you all for all your help. Can anyone answer my question b4 I am going to use a verm bottom layer and a juffy mix top layer for casing on my next batch. Can I just the jiffy mix str8 out the bag? I heard its ready to go straight out the bag, and people have had good sucess with. I'm done with this cake bullshit, I did everything right and had bad luck my first time o well.

i wouldnt even bother with the bottem verm layer....
its not needed... but thats just how i do things :smile:

as for the jiffy mix, you could *probably* use it right out of the bag... same goes for verm + coir...
but isint it just as easy to nuke it for 10 min and let it cool?

If I am not mistaken, this jiffy mix is just that, a mix of stuff. Now, if it were a medium suitable for the growth of contaminants, then pasteurizing would be the way to go. But, if it is a mix of non-nutritious materials, then sterilizing it would be ok.

I think this stuff is just dirt. I would use strait vermiculite before I used dirt as a casing layer. Perhaps you could use peat, but be sure to adjust the PH. Coco Coir is much better IMO.

No need for a bottom casing layer, the purpose of these in theory is to add moisture and allow wastes to drain off. Not really a problem with a vermiculite cake that wont go many flushes.

Jiffy mix since you do not know what your talking about it, is half peat moss half verm with lime added to adjust ph levels.

Just so you know, Jiffy Mix is basically a 50/50+ casing mix with a slightly more acidic pH than you would want. It is helpful to buffer it with Some lime to get the pH upto around 8 or so. As far as steriliziing, pasteurizing is more what you should be trying to do. No need for a bottom verm layer, but if you are going to overmist it all the time so there's excess water then its a good idea. It isn't really necessary with proper procedure. Good luck on that shit, try using EQ's those are really easy to grow. I have also heard that KS are super easy for pin development.
