Mini-casing for PF tek?
    #3938844 - 03/19/05 04:49 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I am experimenting with this idea.


I made an aluminum foil bowl for my PF cake, and filled it with verm about 1/2 inch up the side of the cake(which was D & R'ed as usual). I sprayed it with h20/h202 solution. Just enough to make it moist.

Has anyone had any substantial increase in yield doing this as opposed to dunking and rolling only? Does this raise the chance of contam? I was thinking this might increase the chance of cobweb, but not really certain.

Anyway, just really want to know if its worth doing this.

Thx!

any type of additional nutrients a pf cake gets after birth increases its yeild almost every time. if the mycilium seems dry id suggest dunking, otherwise the launch pad tek works fine. remember to mist.

So providing it more moisture would increase the yield?

I'm just looking to maximize my yield with cakes. I case most of them now, but I still like to have a few cakes going just in case something bad happens with the casings.

not only moisture but nutrients from the verm or a casing layer hhelp provide the mycilium network with what it needs to produce a larger overall reproductive biomass.

if u want a large yeild throw ur cakes in dung or straw, the yeild difference is dramatic.

I thought vermiculite was non-nutritive.

I am not certain I am ready to try spawning to bulk.  I am still working on just getting grain to colonize, heh.  Down the road perhaps.  :smile:
