Sounds like you are talking about using a cake to innoculate a bulk substrate. Info on this can be found in the find or grow section of this site somewhere :wink:. Yes, it works but it is not a tech for those just starting out.

Just to make sure you are properly educated, a casing is a thin layer of a moist inert substance (vermiculite) which acts as a resevoir of water and protects the substrate.

Casing serves greater purpose than simply a water supply.. Casing provides a micro-climate that promotes pinhead growth. That is why you wnt your casing to be light and airy, as well as moist, but not wet. The structure of the casing layer is extremely important.. and is usualy the deciding factor between failure, moderate success, and a magnificant harvest. Take care,

vivid

What about the straw technique where you put a straw in the top to feed it water, how well does that work?

It works fine.

The best way to rehydrate a cake (considering ease of use as well as efficiency) is to simply set it directly on your moist perlite after the first flush. When you see pins forming for the second flush, remove from direct contact with the perlite. Repeat for each flush.

The straw tek works a little better, but the perlite wins for ease of application.

The reason you never saw too many details for the tek you mentioned is because they don't really exist. I believe you are likely reffering to the bulk section of MMGG. The author was new to bulk, and left the details up to the reader. It's not even a great bulk tek.
