Overlay on cakes?
    #4162188 - 05/11/05 04:30 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Why am I getting overlay on my cakes (Lots of fury myc)

I am getting more an more frustrated with the fruiting stage, I never really have much success.

I have tried using air pumps, lights, heaters, perlite, dunk and roll.......all sorts, but never really do very well with fruiting WHY?

Please help me, I am ready for giving up on this hobby, I never seem to have much success.

I am using B+ strain, using a plastic heated propergator as a terarium, perlite humidification, filtered air pump, temps 65-75deg c

So what is wrong ????

Cakes are really hard to fruit, that's what is wrong. It's my personal opinion that they are more difficult to produce yields from than a casing.

Break those puppies up and case them, you won't be waiting months on end for some cakes to fruit. I struggled with cakes forever, it was wasted time.

To find a place to live between the negatives and positives.

well, first off, cakes ARE overlay :wink:
then, do a search for the Poor Mans Pod,
its possibly the best environment for cakes but from your post it sounds as if
you already did the pmp.

if you want to take my advice, BEFORE you really give up,
order a pre-made grain mycobag and nock it up, itll provide you a self containing
fruiting environment and you CANT screw up on that,
but thats like the last option.

besides that, there is no way to say it didnt work,
maybe you just didnt wait long enuf?

ive seen people taking cakes AND casings up to a month to show
one single sign of a small pin, patience is key!
keep it up dude, once you got it going youll drown in mush :wink:
peace ohm :mushroom2:
