Question with caking
    #3330963 - 11/07/04 09:19 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

my friend asks...Is it a good idea to cut the half pint cakes in half and have two smaller cakes? He mainly wants to collect spores from this grow so he's willing to experiment

hps are pretty small as it is, I wouldnt cut it in half. Dont think youll get a larger yield and might get contams. If youve already done cakes why not try casings? this will definately increase your yield. If you want to get some spores fruit a cake or two just to be safe incase the casing doesnt work out.

Do you recomend cutting them in half to make a casing layer...

3 cakes cut in half per case...

Id just crumble them personally, but some have cut them like disks, then added some crumblemd mycelium in the space between. Stick em in a new ziplock and break em up, then case em. Some people let em heal a day before actually casing, in the case of crumble and case, but I just case em and it turns out well. Just make sure theres at least an inch of substrate, better yet 2. heres some inspiration...

crumble them and lay evenly across the bottom at least 2-4 half pints per casing you ll get more shrooms than from a cake so dont worry about the fact that it takes more cakes

crumble crash course:
1. take jar in hand
2.birth cake into fresh plastic bag
3.crumble with hands from out side of bag
4. place in casing as bottom layer

Just leave it as is. Bigger cakes tend to give bigger shrooms. Bigger shrooms mean larger prints.

Also try picking all but 2 or 3 pins. You'll get larger mushrooms that way.
