To crumble, or not to crumble
    #1842157 - 08/22/03 10:46 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

My friend has always used WBS and has had great succes with it straight and in bulk expeiriments. The question he has is he never just tacken a cack of WBS right out of the myco bag and cased it without crumbling. He is wanting to work on a smaller scale. And he has heard that if you crumble it stresses the mycilium wich he assumes uses up nutrients to form again and longer to pin, is this true? Any info would be great. Thanks

I would think crumbling pf cakes would put more stress on mycelia according to your friends notion. Crumble it, it will speed colonization and make for a more even pinset.

crumbling wont speed it up it will slow it down. And when you crumble its just one more step to get contamed. When its a solid cake its hard to contam.
