Newb question...Cakes vs....
    #2218627 - 01/04/04 04:50 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I just received 1 B+ and 1 Treasure Coast Syringe...I'm doing the pf-tek and this is my first try. When the cakes are done and I am about to take them out to fruit, should I A)Leave them in cake form or B) Crumble them up into the plastic tray and let them fruit like that....

Thanks

Afoaf is on his first PF tek attempt as well. If this is your first time, I'd experiment with the jars first (fruit the cake). I suppose if things go well the first time, the second time you could try a casing with a few colonized cakes. Casings have a higher contamination rate, so you might wanna wait.

Remember, you probably need a casing mix, I don't know if you can just crumble it up and let it fruit.

Since this is your first grow, just fruit them. Dont try cutting them up yet. After this first flush you can get some spores and grow again. Then you can try doing a casing.

i'm on my first grow right now and i tryed a few differant things. i did a few cakes, i made 1 casing with just verm as the casing layer and i just crumbled a few cakes in a tray and put it in my terrarium with no casing layer. i have just notices knots on all of them today.
if you case with just verm there is very little chance on contamination but i'm not sure how the flush is compared to casing with peat or coir. i think i'll try that next time. i'm curious to see what kind of flush i get from the on i just crumbled in a tray. so all of those are option that will work but i'm not sure about the differance in yield. maybe someone with more experiance can say.
