First uncased cake.
    #3369172 - 11/16/04 04:11 PM (12 years, 23 days ago)

Yes I started with casings, and decided to try a cake to compare..

The thing is in a bucket with perlite on top of the fridge.. One FECKING GIANT shroom is growing out the top.. and a bunch of thick meaty looking pins are coming around the sides a few days behind the monster.

It looks like they will be a LOT bulkier than anything my casings have produced, and it didnt even take the full blown PMPish setup my casing are using atm. So I'm just wondering if this is a general trait of cakes.. or if I'm doing something wrong with casings.

If your getting smaller shrooms of your casings the depth of your substrate layer may not be thick enough. I have seen cakes throw off some huge shrooms but you will have much more yeildage with casings! Sounds like your success ful with both so thats good...

They might get that big, pick the big boy and let them have a go at it. Are my eyes bad or did you roll that baby in perlite?

prolly such a big guy cause he didn't have to compete with other shrooms for nutes. He was the first pin right? with cakes a lot of people tend to pick the first few pins so they ahve a more even set.. even so with casing.
