Casing really isn't all that difficult. I cased on my first grow, with success. I recommend a coir/verm mix or just straight coir- no need to mess with the PH with those. Just make sure you read up on it alot, do it cleanly, and you probably won't fuck up. Whatever you decide, good luck!

i say case, cakes are pretty surefire but so are casings imo. look into the casing teks and you'll find a simple casing recipe.

i would put a thin layer of perilite in the bottom of an aluminum pan and crumble up the cakes on top of that. a small pan for three cakes. maybe 6x6inches. cover the pan with foil and incubate for 24 hours then case it with coir\verm. let that sit for 5-6 days incubating and check to see if the mycelium starts poking through then fruit it. i'll be glad to answer any more questions. you can PM me if you want specific answers.

Case, its the way to go. Everyone talks about how PF cakes are easier, not in my opinion. Casing will help you prevent cross contamination once the cakes are birthed, which was the problem I ALWAYS had despite prevention measures when I used PF cakes. If you are worried about difficulty in casing then just use plain 100% vermiculite, or mix 50/50 with Jiffy Mix potting soil (without fertilizer). Cactus soil can work if you can't find Jiffy, and some even prefer it (I don't lol, the cactus soil has pH slightly acidic). Anyway, I suggest at least rolling your cakes in vermiculite and then spraying them later. PF cakes are a pain in the mushroom.

And there is where God lives, where the dead live, the spirits and the saints, a world where everything has already happened and everything is known. That world talks. It has a language of its own. I report what it says. The sacred mushroom takes me by the hand and brings me to the world where everything is known. It is they, the sacred mushrooms, that speak in a way I can understand. I ask them and they answer me. When I return from the trip that I have taken with them, I tell what they have told me and what they have shown me."

use coco coir to case you may have problems with straight verm. i never had much luck with vermiculite by itself. i've recently started using coco bark

If no one minds, i l'd like to chime in with a question similar to his. This is my first time also, And I plan on doing quite a few jars, maybe 30, so i have lots of room for mistake. Should I case some AND plain fruit them from cakes?

Thanks for the advice guys. I think I'm probably going to go case them with coir/verm. Sounds pretty simple. Hopefully i'll have some nice pics to post when im done.

yes - best to try both.

if first time and you want to case, straight verm is the easiest - you need no more ingredients
