No more cakes
    #4233505 - 05/29/05 03:25 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

SO when I was doing cakes I was getting garbage like this.

I went through about 20 cakes losing most to contam and never really getting any results.

So I decided to start doing casings and boy is it much easier and seems to work MUCH better. Heres some pics I took yesterday.






Plus these sat in a box for a week straight with no light or fresh air. I took them out misted them real good and fanned alot and they were growing again in less then a day. This really was alot easier and I wish I would of tried it first. I'll go take another pic in a few so you can see the change.

Did you roll any of your cakes? That could make a big difference. I got some good results with cakes-


I do agree though casing is definitely better. Nice pics :smile:

I got green mold on all of my casings. I think its cause I used peat moss. I'm switching to coir next time. But I had some cakes too just in case this type of thing happened. So I still got some spore prints. THE GROW MUST GO ON.

Wasn't b/c you used peat moss...

If you were unsteile at some point OR, you didnt add a Ph buffer - or enough.

Myc. likes it more base....Greenie likes it more acidic :evil:
