Bulk yields vs. casing yields
    #3315511 - 11/03/04 04:41 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I'm doing my first non cake grow and I am debating whether I should case this next batch or go for a bulk substrate. What are the yield differences between a 2" substrate layer cased and a 6" or so bulk substrate grow? (Approximately)

Like was being said..if the 2" layer is whole grains..about the same as the 6" straw layer..only slightly less maybe. (say 2 ounces instead of 2 1/4-2 1/2 ounces). The whole grains would likly last a number of flushes more...straw putters out quickly.

You're talking about cakes though which contain less nutes then whole grains so I'm unsure of what it would yeild but if your choice is between cakes and straw I'd say the straw will rock its world.

"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)
