Cutting cakes in half
    #3207980 - 10/02/04 09:54 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I was wondering if it would be beneficial to cut the cakes in half when using the cake/perlite method.
IMO your exposing twice the surface area which would provide more area for pinning and more exposure
to the moisture. Just a thought. How bout some feedback. Thanks guys!

Eh... make sure you let it colonize the whole way through. If you were too eager to birth and it's not colonized the whole way through to the middle, it leaves a lot to contams.

The growing mushrooms will use all available nutrients in the cake and produce a given amount of weight for the given amount of substate under the conditions you are fruiting from.

In other words, if you cut the cake in half, each half will have a smaller mass of mycelium to fruit from and you will end up with smaller fruits. You may get more pins but I doubt your yeild will increase. A 1/4 pint is such a small amount of substrate to be fruiting from, I would would probably advise against it.

Just leave the cakes intact and fruit under optimal conditions, and you'll get optimum yeilds. Let the mushies do the work...
