Fatten your Cakes?
    #2913438 - 07/21/04 08:45 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I have not tried this, but I was thinking...
Could you possibly take a colonized cake and place it in a jar/container with sterilized brf, verm, water, covering the colinized cake. Will that get the mycelium from the cake to start to grow through the new substrate you added thus making your cake grow bigger?

Everyone's input would be appreciated!

in my oppinion this should work fine. A better idea would probably be to just break up the cake and put it in your larger jar. probably use like 1/2 the cake if the jar is twice as big. If you just put the cake in and cover it, it will probably take longer to colonize the rest of it, than would be worth it.

Sure it would work provided you can guarantee 100% sterility during the whole process...

If you're going to go to the effort, why not just crumble & case? Wouldn't you get better flushes that way anyhow?

This is already a popular tek for expanding spawn. It's been around for at least a couple of years :wink: Anyway put your colonized cake into a ziplock (there sterile until opened) in a cleaned atmosphere (flowhood, GB, etc;) then add three sterilized PFTek cakes (brf) which have the verm layer omitted, seal the ziplock up and squeeze squeeze squeeze distributing the colonized cake as evenly as possible and within 4-5 days you'll have 4 times the spawn!!! These can then be crumbled and cased for a much nicer casing! :wink: GL bro

Soo.. you put in three cakes and then it magically grows 4 times larger? I think you missed something or I misunderstood something.

Thanks alot everyone! I think I'll wait untill I get some new cakes colonized before I try this. I wouldn't want to waste one if it doesn't work out. I only have 4 cakes of Ecuadors so far.
So take clean ziplock bag.
Insert colonized cake.
Insert 3 sterilized brf/verm cakes
Mash the hell outta it
Wait for complete colonization in the bag.
Empty bag, crumble into casing.
Miss anything?
I wasn't thinking casing. I just wanted to make a big ass cake! lol I'm curious to see if I could just keep adding and adding and maybe get one massive cake. Why? Just for the hell of it!

I've even left them in the bags opening end up flattened them then when colonized just cut the top off an inch or two above the casing and cased it right in the same bag! :wink: This works better with regular spawn bags and is great when doing lots of bags. For one big ass flatcake I'd just slide it out after colonization and double end it or at least top it with 50/50 peatbased or coir based, I find verm casing suck at great pinsets, just my $.02
