surface area
    #3314431 - 11/03/04 01:33 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hey in the past few days i have knocked up a total of 48 jars with 12 more being sterilized as i speak for another strain which will be injected in a few days when i get the syringe. i have some grows under my belt and have done one straw bulk and many cakes an two small casing, besides the straw tek. anyway i was wondering what to do with all these jars, now they are all brf jars as i haven't tried grains out yet. i use them on my straw grow and my casing before with success, i have decided to case them all with 50/50+ but my question is, should i just case the whole bottom of a few Rubbermaid tubs, or should i just make another pmp and case a few different tray to go into each pod. the surface area will be greater with the whole bottom cased but i could control the conditions and any contams better if they were in separate trays in pmp's what do you guys think i should do?

Don't grow mushrooms if it is illegal where you live.

Large surface area is better but if one contams...you lose all the jars, you need to be prepared for that. Surface area doesnt produce larger shrooms, just more medium sized ones resulting in a larger yeild. Casing grain over 2 inches of depth is a waste IME.

Magash uses one quart per casing last time I checked in ziplock containers. That ends up beings a good surface area to thickness ratio.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
Anyone looking to start bulk tubs/mono tubs/shotgun hybrids? Good tubs to use..
