Damp verm. on cakes?
    #345275 - 06/20/01 04:43 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Spanky was wondering if it would increase yields if you put a little bit of damp vermiculite on top of the cakes when they're fruiting, then remove it after the first flush? Anyone have any knowledge about this?

Damp verm is commonly used as a casing. It helps promote mushroom growth. Why would you want to remove it?

He means, when using PF Tek cakes, just adding a little layer to the top, not making a complete casing. The mycelium wouldn't really 'engulf' the verm. since it wasn't broken up/crumbled, would it? He heard that after the first flush, if you remove the small layer, then get larger yields.
