NEED HELP - QUESTIONS ABOUT DUNKING & CASING?
    #3559156 - 12/29/04 11:26 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Hi Everyone,

Well this is the first attempt at growing and my jars/glasses are starting to get patches of mycelium. I have one where im pretty sure i can see little pins but as i used glasses they have shaped glass on the outside which makes it difficult to look into.

My question is: Should I dunk my cakes before birthing them onto perlite. Is that the best method?! I used the simple minds guide which uses brf and verm. Im also a little unsure on the dunking procedures? If anyone has a procedure that has worked i would really appreciate it!

2nd Question: Casing! Is it worth it. Can it be done with a verm & brf cake. Can anyone suggest a method??

Thanks everyone.

P.S. Sorry im a noob

Yes casing can be worth it..not sure how much BRF will increase yields...cakes done right can give some good yields. I think larger yields are easier when cased though. Just crumble up the cake (either with a spoon or put the cake into a clean bag and crumble into chunks) into a pan or dish of any sort and cover with your choice of casing soil. There are many kinds in the FAQ's, I would suggest either coir/verm or 50/50+..coir/verm will be easiest of the two..

if your going to dunk, you might as well dunk and roll. After jars are fully colonized scrape dry verm off top and gently tap your cake our of the jar, submerge it in water overnight and then roll it in verm. add to you terrerium or whatever setup you have. pretty sure thats about it.

casing will give you better results and yields.

When you roll them in verm should the verm be sterilized first? If so, how? Nuking, PC'n..?

I did it without sterilizing before (for all 4 cakes [of rye] that I've ever done) but you should. PC would work best but nuking for a few minutes would probably work too..I'd think youd need to add water to nuke though and dry verm rolls on better.
