Key factors?
    #3974542 - 03/27/05 12:35 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

What are the main factors that make a so-so casing turn into one that is completely filled to the brim with beautiful pins?

Does the casing layer make that huge of a difference?

Substrate Depth?

Temperatures?

Substrate
Humidity
Air Exchange
Light

Casing layer does make a huge difference, and depth does matter it shouldn't be more than 1/4 the depth of your substrate.

practice!!!!!

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.

>>>>>Does the casing layer make that huge of a difference?<<<<<<<

Is a condom key factor in birth control?

A so-so casing doesnt turn into a primo one. You have to start out - with optimal - everything.

Optimal container, substrate, spawn, incubation, casing, pinning & fruiting conditions.... is what get you  :thumbup:PRIMO :thumbup: B/E & crops

Kind of off topic, but can I snag your blue shroom picture in your signiature for use in my own?

I recently did a casing with only 1 1/2 pint pf tek cake, in a 10" square alum pan. It yielded pretty nicely in my PMP. Would using 2 or 3 cakes have made more of a yield difference?
