Can cakes survive being pulled apart mult. times?
    #386499 - 09/05/01 09:18 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

When a foaf crumbled and cased his cakes two weeks ago, he was a little drunk and it being his first time, he made a few mistakes. Namely, he got a little over-ambitious and made one of his casings too big to fit in the terrarium/cooler. No problem, he let the casing sit for a few days and then made two smaller casings out of the larger one. So far so good. Now I was wondering, since contam's seem to be under control (so far 20 1pt. jars, 4 casings two weeks old, no contams.) and he also has 5 1pt. jars that haven't colonized at all after 2-3 weeks, could we rip off a few pieces of our casings to try to innoculate the ones that didn't take? I figure that if we don't try, sooner or later something nasty will take over and it will be a waste of substrate. Any ideas? Thanx.

You should have shrooms by now on your casings. Have you cold shocked them? You have to be alittle more descriptive. But to your other ?, yes you can use a small piece to inocul. the other jars....but if nothing is going on in there then you might just want to throw them away. Then start over. Give the jars somemore time...you never know!

No, haven't cold shocked them yet. I've been seriously thinking about it though. At first, I thought that the top verm layer was a little too thick, but I figured give it a little more time. Also, I have been vigorously spraying them, so I thought that maybe I was drowning them. The cake seems very healthy, so I recased it (in two smaller casings). Should I just take off the verm layer, cold shock it, and put it under light? The only thing that puzzles me is that although the crumbled cakes have "consolidated" into one and are healthy, there seems to be no effort to grow up into the verm layer. That's why I decided to give it light anyway hoping that the pins would shoot up through the verm. That was three days ago. Any ideas? Sorry, I can't type that well so that's why my descriptions aren't that good. Thanx

If you can cold shock them for 36-48hrs. As for using verm. on top of your casing......i can't help you there. Never used verm. for casing. There's not a lot of nutri. in verm. by it'self.
As for light, make sure you don't over do it. I use what little comes in my window all the way across the room. If your entire room is lit-up, then put them in the darkest spot.
