Double end casing PF cakes?
    #3755379 - 02/09/05 11:55 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I was just wondering if anyone knew what this is and how it is accoplished? Also I was wondering as looking through all the grow pics on this site what is the brown stuff put on the bottom and top of the PF Cakes? Thank you for all of your help people. Peace.

That brown stuff is vermiculite, a soil additive. It has the ability to hold moisture rather well. It is what you use to put on the top and bottom of the cake to feed the cake the water it needs. You need to keep it moist at all times by periodically dripping or spraying water onto the vermiculite. It can be purchased from garden centers and nurserys. Lowes home improvement garden center is a place that usually always has it.

All those pictures you that have brown stuff on the bottom and top are cakes that have been double end cased. The brown stuff is vermiculite. When you birth your cake, birth it into a jar lid or similar small dish/container that has a layer of moist vermiculite in it. Then, spoon another layer of vermiculite on top of the cake and moisten it with an eye dropper, syringe, or spray bottle. Then every couple days or so, re-moisten the top and bottom vermiculite layers. It's a method of keeping the cake hydrated, a pretty tried and true one.

Excerpt from one of my textbooks:
Therefore, between a then and its matching else, there cannot be an if statement without an else. Statements must be distinguished between those that are matched and those that are unmatched, where unmatched statements are else-less ifs and all other statements are matched.
I wonder if that would make more sense if I was tripping when I read it.
