G2G vs Cakes
    #3248825 - 10/12/04 09:33 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hey whats up. AFOAF and his roommate are in the middle of their first grow using BRF and verm(1/2 pint jars), with a little more than a week left until birthing. Their question is, is one method better than the other? Should they just birth the cakes and hope for good flushes, or should they go ahead and grain-to-grain. They know how to do the G2G process, they just want to know if there is an advantage to doing one over the other, whether or not they should just birth the cakes or if they should G2G and re-colonize???

Additionally, should they dunk in between flushes, or anytime?

Any feedback would be much appreciated, especially from experienced growers.

How you gonna post on this site about your obvious grow, and then state some garbage claiming you have no idea whats goin on? Im not hatin on anyone in particular. I just think its funny that people think that their little 'disclaimers' would actually prevent legal action being takin if deemed necessary. Or am i just missing the point...

I have been at this along time
My advice would be to go buy a bale of YELLOW STRAW

Cut a bunch of it up into 1-2 inch pieces. Fill a pillow case with cut straw and put into a big pot of water. Heat it to 170 degs for 2 hours. Take the pillow case outside and let it drain over night.

Now get a yourself a big plastic tub. Put about 1 inch of cooked straw in the bottom. Break up one cake to very small pieces and spread it all over the straw. Put down another inch layer of straw and another crumbled cake. Do this 5 times or until the straw is 6 inchs deep. Then take some Saran wrap and cover the straw up. Tuck it in around the sides, like a bed spread.

Now Wait until the straw is covered in Myc. Then case

You will find this simple method makes Hugh flushes and shrooms. Shit you won't even need a humidity tent. Just open the top and mist twice a day and fan it out.

You can put it into a humidity chamber. But I find It isn't needed.

The straw holds so much water it makes it's own humidity :thumbup:

Works like a charm

You will need no cow shit

And cooking straw dosn't smell bad enough to worry about pissing anyone off.

G2G is a way to increase spawn volume and cakes is just fruiting them. If you'd like to G2G take a jar or two and transfer to 10 or so WBS jars and they should be ready in about a week.

Going bulk with the straw isnt that bad of an idea. But since your a newb i would advise birthing those cakes, minus the ones you used for G2G, and later making grain casings with the WBS or use that as spawn.

Grower, WBS can be used as both a casing and substrate? Or did i just misunderstand you?

Casings are either trays or containers of substrate usually cased with a casing mix like 50/50 or verm. GL and welcome friend
