casing vs other methods
    #2185328 - 12/17/03 03:18 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

hi all if this is the wrong forum slap me  :crazy2: I'm  kind of getting the impression that casing is alot easier than fruiting from cakes???  in like the bulk neglect log  he just leaves it there with a garbage bag over it till it fruits.
so apparently you dont need to be as sterile with casing as with cakes??
so Im adding a poll for :

who prefers casing                  or cakes in a terrarrium,



thanx,
iggy
P.S.  am i correct in thinking that cased substrate does not need to be kept in a terrarium as long as temps are right and you keep spraying the casing soil if it drys? 
what method do you prefer
You may choose 3
casing
fruiting from cakes
other (please explain)


Votes accepted from (12/17/03 03:17 PM) to (No end specified)

well, methods like to that used in the bulk neglect report can work amazingly well for cultivators who know casing and bulk substrates inside and out, but are unreliable and are not suitable for inexperienced cultivators.

casing is very easy, but like cakse, must be practiced and perfected by the dultivator before [s/he] will see reliably good results.

i recomend cased bulks like straw/poo and horse manure.

you do not have to be sterile with colonized cakes, as you don;t have to be sterile with bulks, but you do have to be clean.

mykofile got away with his bulk neglect because he knew the tollerances allowable in the different aspects of cultivating P. cubensis rather well, and it could well have gone otherwise even given that, as the conditions, as he said, where less than ideal.

Attn PWN hunters: If you should come across a bluing Psilocybe matching P. pellicolusa please smell it.
If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.

i prefer casings, but cakes are easier for those new to cultivation usually.

well this is a hypothetical question then.  If one were to have 20 fully colonized jars of BRF bbut has never grown b4.  should he do most like 16 just fruiting from cakes in terrarrium and try out casing with 4?  or would it be best to just stick with the cakes?  Kitty's gotta learn to case at some point right?  :tongue2:

if kitty has four he doesn't mind possibly losing, then kitty should go for it.

i remember this guy who started learning casing by letting his cakes flush once and then breaking/casing the not-yet-spent cakes. this allowed him a more or less guaranteed harvest and material to experiment with casing. although, in your case (no pun intended), with that many cakes, i say keep 10 cakes and try casing the other 10. definitely do not sacrifice all the cakes to a first attempt. also, might i suggest you keep topics such as this in the regular cultivation forum?
