Do I dunk and cold shock cakes for casing?
    #3883972 - 03/07/05 08:29 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I would think no to cold shock, as we do not want to induce fruiting yet.

But do I dunk them for 12 hours?

Also, when I harvested my cakes, there was blueish spots under some of them, and on some spots on the cakes. Is this psilicybin oxidixing, or lack of moisture, or contams?

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Would it be better to case with vermiculite or Jiffy Mix?

I've done cakes.

Check the thread on this page about harvesting too early.

Should I do all vermiculite or vermiculite, cakes, then Jiffy Mix?

How thick should my layers be using these materials?

Would it be better to leave the cakes whole or crumble them?
