is there anything you can do to the cakes so you get less aborts and more bigger, fatter ones?

Well to be honest cakes are really a waste of time. You can case one 1/2 pint pf-cake and get twice as much weight than you would by leaving it as a cake. But to answer your question, yes you can get less aborts and nice fatty fruits by fruiting your cakes in optimal conditions. Also make sure to dunk for 24 hours before fruiting.

:goodluck:

Yes, get high quality tested spores/mycellium, provide an optimal air exchange, correct RH in the fruiting thing and a good grain/shit/straw/wood EDIT(depending on what you?re growing).

nah, cakes are bad ass... they are easy to get done and fruiting without much hassle from contamland, and if you do it really good, you can get your cakes to flush around 15 times.... THe nutrients arent really what gets spent in a cake when it flushes (Granted, some of them are, but not as much as water) so the cake runs out of water the fastest... we put water back into the cake, and walla!! Brand new cake. THey will flush as long as there are nutrients, and the myc network stays strong.

15 flushes from a cake? Wow I can honestly say I haven't even done that with bulk! You must be talking small flushes bc may cakes flush big time then drop off even when dunked so they get tossed OD into the horse poo patch as spawn then they flush all summer long!!! :laugh: Cakes do deplete nutes rather quickly IME, but they are as you said  easy as hell! :heart:

Nah, all the flushes were about the same size... towards the end, they produced reallyi long and skinny shrooms... thought that was from the fungus gnats eating my cakes... i was going for 20 flushes, but had to toss em out at 15 or 16 due to gnats... i hate those little things.

This post is super old, but I don't think the Q was answered so.....I have found that dark makes fatter mushrooms and light makes skinnier mushrooms. You need some light though to get them to pin.

the tek i was talking about is a tek i wrote... its basically my take on the whole pf tek...  here it is to get that many flushes, you keep dunking after the cakes get all light and dry feeling... If you keep shit clean, they will continue to flush until the nutrients run out.  Let me know how you do with it :smile:
