Starting poo tek with cake that is not finished?
    #4261559 - 06/05/05 11:05 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I have been waiting for two cakes to finish, long time. I want to try the poo tek when they are done but wanted to know if I can go ahead without it being finished?

I've spawned cakes that were only 80% colonized and had absolutely no problems. Crumble them in a plastic baggy first and then mix them in with your spawn. It will make for a much better mix and pretty much guarantee that the uncolonized cake is thoroughly mixed in with colonized substrate when you mix in the bag first.

Go for it.

you can't do anything with a cake that hasn't finished.
uncolonized poo is resistant to contaminants-
uncolonized grain is not.

:zoom:

might be able to get away with it one time, or even a couple, but it is best to be safe in my oppinion.

if you do it, i'd reccomend letting the ziploc with cakes in it set for 24 hrs to knit up a bit.

I have only done this one time, so there may be some truth to what you are saying. It's always a safe bet waiting until the cake has fully colonized, but try it for yourself and see what happens. I think there is way too much talk of contaminates around this forum.

I have yet to experience any contaminates on any of my grows. I practice common sense when cultivating, but I certainly don't bust out a clean room. This hobby is not that hard. Trying new things is how we all learn, but it's always helpful to have the experience of fellow members.

There's two sides of the coin for you. All you have to do is choose the one you like.

What about if I want to use the same mix I started with. Brown rice and verm. Can I add it to a bag of this sterile mix, combine, and then spread it out into a larger container?
