Partial Birth
    #445833 - 11/03/01 05:44 PM (16 years, 5 months ago)

Some of my PF cakes have stopped colonizing completely. I've added water, turned them and nothing seems to work. Can I cut off the bottom (colonozed) part with a sterile knife and try to fruit half the cake? At this point I don't seee what it could hurt. Has anyone tried this before? Thanks. Gator

singe the exposed parts that you gouge out.

Maybe you could case the little bit that is colonized to get all you can from it.

I don't know anything about casing. Could someone point me to a good tek? Gator

You'll have to research a bit, I'd point you toward a tek but I dont have any casing experience. Alot of people have been doing straight vermiculite casings but I think since you have such a small amound of cake you may want to use one of the 50/50+ techs. Any pro's know if I'm correct on this one? Anyway, check the grow/find link on the main shroomery page.

This is fine but prone to contaminate later. Also I've found that many times when the cake looks only half colonized and you've given it more than enough time, only a small portion is uncolonized. and the outside just doesn't show it well.

re: gatorx, The PF cake is almost fully colonized, yet seems stunted - yet so AXENIC (single organism on substrate)

RAW verm/rice likes nasty molds badly.

(Weirdly wonderfully) the most recent LearyFan post on casings has directions where to turn next...

my horse's cow cut out the uncolinized area and the mycelium eventually took over on all sides i even have some fruits growing on one of them, but there is a risk of contamination

I jsut scape off the uncolonized part, dunk it in H2O2 for half a second and spawn it on compost and straw
