how many can i fit?
    #3402743 - 11/24/04 10:23 AM (12 years, 4 months ago)

ok om going to be fruiting 6 1/2 pint cakes soon, and i think im gunna try cakes this time. The strains are 3 b+ and 3 GT. Ok my question is that i have a 10 gallon aquarium for fruiting will that give the cakes enough space to not be crowded. Or should i case some and cake some. i cased my last batch of cambodians with 60/40 coir verm, and it worked good. Thin layer though so mostly thin mushies. Thanks

10 Gallons is a pretty small container. Id make cakes for them all unless you plan on making a tiny casing, the surface area might cover too much of the perlite/geolite making the humidity hard to control.

I dunno though. Play around

I learned that one should keep about 2 inches between each cake.
So you know the length and broad of the tib so go on and calculate m8! :laugh:

They are brf and verm cakes Are pf tek jars usually better to case with of make cakes? I got a bigger tank if needed. Also i know its hard to say, but appx. how large of a container would i need to stick 6 cakes in and get average size mushies? Is it ok to put 2 strains of mycelium in one casing like one 1 on the left and one on the right side? Thanks for tha help

they hav been grown mindlied, but id say keep em apart. to kno the answer to how big, u gotta say what the diameter of the cakes are. jus add 2 to that to get x, then u need to fit 6 squares x big pon each side.
