Are you supposed to dunk before breaking up a cake to case?
    #3254443 - 10/20/04 02:13 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

As the title states..

Should I dunk, but not cold shock? Is it beneficial, or should I just break the cake up and go for it?

a good spray-down, after breaking it up should do find enough though.

As a n00b and wannabee grower (wich will happen this year) your post makes me wonder why people do casing and not just put the cakes in the fruitingchamber? Maybe you get more mushrooms per gram substrate?
I guess casing takes more place for the same amount of substrate as well?

Anyway why should i case and not just put the cakes in the fruitingchamber thats what I would like to know!

TIA! :laugh:

case because youll get bigger and more plentiful mushies and more flushes. Plus it ust looks cooler IMO to see them all clustered togheather in a casing.

Cool beejay, I think the cases are easier to handle too then the fragile puddings! :p

We'll see, maybe I start with 2 cases and 2 cakes, maybe not cause it is more work I can always case later when i go for a second or 3rd round! Since casing gives me better/more mushrooms I will do it sooner or later..

Thanks!

MF

yeah I started with a mess load of cakes and one casing, after the first flush, I saw how much better the casing did. I dunked all the cakes and turned them into one big casing. Just stuck it in the fruiting chamber today. Hope it goes well.
