first harvest from first two cakes from first flush from first grow
    #4174044 - 05/14/05 11:40 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

AFOAF is glad they had success the first time, and they are pretty pleased with the results considering these are only from two cakes while they still have 4 left to harvest and a casing that just started pinning. they've got the cakes dunking now getting ready for a second flush.

no scale yet, but soon.



they are z-strain, afoaf is thinking GT or b+ next time.

my friend doesn't have a scale yet, he said he's getting one probably monday. i'm sure they aren't that much, but he said it's still nice to have sucess.

nice, better than my first cake, my first casing though, that was another story. Casings are the shit, you are about to learn that.

Get them off the paper towls! They have a tendency to stick to them if you dry them on it.

Nice pics, so did you put one of the cakes directly on the Hydroton/Geolite?

If so, which worked better? On the jars, or on the Hydroton/Geolite?

a few are on the lid minus the screw on part, just not real noticable in the pics. i guess it was real damp undearneath though cause a shat load of mushrooms grew from the bottom center of the cake and actually made it to the surface (flat though)

Your harvest from two cakes almost makes me want to do the cakes again...nice. I did them the first time out, and now on my second batch ever I am going to case because it seems to just really kick butt. I am using "alien substrate" formula, and am going to case them in peat, verm, and poo with a tad of lime, while misting with water with a tad of peroxide. Wish me luck.....will share pics. The mycell kicks ass (14 days to 100 percent)........Camobos coming soon. The Golden Teachers are a bit behind. I only do this for me and a couple buddies for fun (lots of it), but this is so addictive. The process has become almost as inportant as the result.

i plan on casing from now on, just wanted to start with something easy. anything that will make larger fruits, a lot of mine shrivled up into nothing.

If I was you, I'd leave the poo out of my casing mix. Poo is a nutrient rich substance more suited to bulk substrates.

Poo and straw is a very good bulk substrate. Not sure how well cakes that have fruited 4 times will colonize. Might not have a lot of strenght left. I've never done anything outdoors though. Seems like it might be tougher to control your growth parameters. You're pretty much at natures control. Good Luck.
