help with a casing
    #2889236 - 07/14/04 01:16 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i am going to grow some PES Hawaiians in 1 quart jars with vermaculite and brown rice flour then after they're fully colonized and ready to friut i am going to put them in a rubbermade container with damp perlite under the cakes.when they cakes give out there last flush i am going to break them up and case them in verm. and coco coir and put the casing in a rubber made container with damp perlite under it. the lid will be on the big rubbermade container in my sort of dusty attic but it should work fine with a bunch of lysol sprayed. Will this work? if not what will?
thanks

I'm just a newb myself, but from all I've read and heard, those jars would be too big for brf.  Go with some 1/2 pints, or do some whole grains instead.  And watch out for that lysol, man, that shit will give you brain damage if you inhale the fumes too often.  :crazy2:

besides the fact that they'll take forever to colonize 100% (if they even make it that far), you will also have a hell of a time getting the cakes out of the jars, since all Quart jars I've seen are tapered at the top.

Most people who use pint jars have a hard time getting them to colonize completely. Use 1/2 pint, widemouth jars.

The reason the cakes stop flushing (putting out shrooms) is because the nutrients and water are used up.

If you case the spent substrate, it won't do anything, except contam.

You could possibly spawn it to something, but again, you'd be running a high risk of contam, based on what Doey said in #4.

If you really want to attempt salvaging the spent cakes, check out the neglect tek. It can be done outside.
