Expanding da PF Cake method
    #1975456 - 10/03/03 09:59 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Is it possible to expand the cake method? if opposed to using half pint / pint glasses, i used a large glass baking dish (like the one your mum would bake a casserole in) so its about 3 inches deep, 15 long and 8 wide. this would give a large fairly flat cake, on the top of which would be a large surface area from which the fruit bodies can spring. So basically u follow the normal cake making routine but instead of having several taller easier to damage cakes in your terranium you have one large one that lies across the bottom.

Also i do not have a syringe for the inoculation stage, so instead a have just made a spore solution in a test tube and pouring little splashes of the solution over different parts of the large cake.

What are my chances?

i did this and it worked but the reason they make alot of smaller ones is contams. contams my friend can happen VERY EASILY. i made the mistake of using a bread pan. covered in tin foil so i will not know when its fully colonised :tongue:. im going to give it a full month before i open the bag and what ever i got in there is what i get.

just splashing the solution on is VERY WRONG. its an open greating for contams. goto your local pharmacy and request a syringe you'll get one for free no questions asked.

ok later


PS. your chances are very slim.

Try this: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat...&PHPSESSID=

It should be a lot quicker and less prone to contams then what you propose.

Actually, I think extending the cake method is to case them after colonization.
Tossing spore water as you suggest is very haphazard, If you are sterile you may get away with it.
If you are a beginner stick with the basic tek until you have some experience.
