casing=greater potency?
    #4178953 - 05/15/05 05:51 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

a friend of mine has been growing using the BRF Tek for years, but lately
the potency of the shrooms seems to have diminished...It seems that casing will improve overall yields, but will casing also increase the potency
of the mushrooms...

Thanks

well the answer must consider the fact of WHAT you actually case.

if you prepare casings with crumbled up pf cakes, you are still having the mycelium
just being able to utilize the nutes within that, therefor producing
mushrooms that are alike the ones that would grow on a regular cake.

you can make the mass of substrate larger through by using 3cakes or so
and tehrefor providing more overall "food" for the mush to nourish and also build up more psi.

when casing with gains, the potency of the mush can be different just by the
fact of what nutes they get supplied and can grow more "healthy" than just on brf ..

my 2 cents
peace ohm :mushroom2:

Casing woudnt really increase the potency as its used for a moisture layer for the mushrooms. The things that would increase the potency is the actually substrate the mycelium is grown on. When ever I grow brf cakes they are totally shitty when it comes to potency. Tell him to switch to grains. Then you will get potent shrooms.

yeah brf has a couple of inherent probs first it just has less nutes to start than grains or poo second any time you grind up a grain you expose it to the atmosphere and it oxidizes thus slowly destoying what nutes it had to start with

If you do use BRF cakes to case, they will be less potent than the grain, but if you just eat some more mushies, won't that even out the lack of potency with BRF casings, and get you trippin out just as if you used grain?

“Oh, what a love it was, utterly free, unique, like nothing else on earth! Their thoughts were like other people's songs.

They loved each other, not driven by necessity, by the "blaze of passion" often falsely ascribed to love. They loved each other because everything around them willed it, the trees and the clouds and the sky over their heads and the earth under their feet. Perhaps their surrounding world, the strangers they met in the street, the wide expanses they saw on their walks, the rooms in which they lived or met, took more delight in their love than they themselves did.”
