This could be the dumb-est idea ever....

So what are nutes basically...Nutrients right?
Well in the karo tek you use glucose sugars ect...
So what if I dunked my cake in something liek a karo jar?....Would that help it w/ nutes or would that help it contam?
Maybe it'd help brf cakes have more nutes?...Jus fishing for ideas and maybe an experiment...If you're got a comment or idea....post it...thankx...

I asked agar about coffee all he really had to say was :thumbdown:

It's kind of like that...cept instead of using poo tea or compost tea to dunk you sub. in...you're dunking your acual cakes in before you put them in fruiting conditions.....Donno if it'd work or even help...just waiting for someone to venture out and school me i guess :smirk:....lol

Contam heaven. The mycelium absorbs nutes during colonization. If you dunk in karo water you may absorb some and washing it off may not contam, but I doubt that any good it MAY do you will be worth the risk of contams. Its the same as dunking in coffee or poo tea.

I fooled around with coffee soaks of WBS. I think it's BS.

Coffee grounds, on the other hand, in small % make a good addition to a substrate. They hydrate & re/hydrate well, plus add cellulose - lignin that cubes will digest.

I currently have some first coffee soak attempts. Using rye and WBS. Soaked and simmered in 50/50. I'll also be fruiting directly from the substrate, not spawning (maybe some but not all) and I'll have some done in water I did at the same time for side by side. Havnt tried it myself yet but I'm pretty hopfull it will add something to help out the flushes.
