I was reading about the process of casing on this site earlier today and was wondering if I should try casing on my first ever run. I would love to hear some input from those experienced among you.
I figure if I am going as far as this to try something I haven't ever done before, why not go all the way? Or do you think it is better to just do it the simple way first and not try to be so ambitious. Basically it comes down to how much help you all want to give me. :shroomer:
I promise to be smart enough to take the advice of the seasoned ones. Thanks

Well, it also comes down to how much reading you want to do, because all of your answers are right in front of you if you want to go that route.  You can get the answers even quicker (usually) by reading.

I assume you mean as opposed to cakes...right?  Go straight into casing, or do a couple cakes at the same time.  Actually going all the way would be doing a bulk grow.  Spawning to horse poo.  You could try that as well too. 

Many have skipped cakes and gone into casing and are very happy by this descision.

Depending on how many jars you have set up, do a little of both to see the in's and outs and get familiarized with the whole process.

I'm new as well and plan to do a casing on my first run. I've read up on it a lot and it really doesn't seem that hard at all. It actually even seems like it may be less work since the casing layer helps a lot with keeping the humidity level stable. The best thing I've read about it however is that it gives you a significantly larger crop when you're fruiting compared to cakes.
