my situation...
    #2120867 - 11/18/03 09:02 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

i have 20 cakes that were kind of neglected for 2 or 3 months now, and i feel that they are a little tired.
i opened 5 of them up to case with coco coir, one of them was slightly contamed, and the others were not as hard to break apart with my hand; like jars i have had before.

i have dried out horse shit, and im thinking of throwing all twenty cakes in the dirt with some grass clippings, horse shit and dirt. this way they have a better chance of surviving together.

i am also thinking i should do them indoors in hopes that the food will revive the mycelium instead of keeping it weak for contams.

can someone please let me know which would be a better fate for my cakes??

any specific teks people wanna mention is greatly appreciated

Thanks, i use the FAQ all the time... but maybe i didn't explain it well enough.
the cakes are pretty old, and are close to dying. i don't know how this effects flushes, if it ran out of nutrients surviving the past 2 or 3 months then there will be very little mushrooms. if i case it with coco coir then would it be okay? should i use horse shit, indoors or outdoors, im pretty sure i should stick with indoor horseshit, but im not sure how the contams will effect my tired cakes..
if anyone can help

Yeah by casing your myceluim would have more nutrients to feed on.

I work my shitty 9-5 and I pay my taxes, I'm not hurting anybody else. So why do you care what i do in my spare time.

i could be wrong, but when you dunk your cakes, your just giving them extra water to stay hydrated for the upcomming flush. and by cold shocking you are activating the pinning phaze of the fruiting process.
casing with coco coir alone is enough to hydrate them, and cold shocking is probobly not needed.
i am really just asking about doing bulk indoors, outdoors or coco coil casing...
i have enough cakes to do all three, but i was hoping to get a definate from someone in the forum with experience with this problem

i'm not sure if this is part of what you're asking but, there is little to no chance of contams outdoors.
