casing spent cakes
    #4579920 - 08/25/05 04:37 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

First of all, I want to say thank you to everyone on the board. I just completed my first grow, and it was a big success. I have no doubt that every bit of fungus produced is directly due to the knowledge gained on this site. I wish i had a camera to show you all how the grow went, but for now all I can show you folks is gratitude.

I also have a quick question. I left my cakes in the FC after the third flush, and they pinned like crazy, but there's just not enough moisture for these bad boys to grow. Would it be worth it to remove the nubbins, chop up and case these brf cakes. I'm thinking at the very least it would be good practice for the wbs casing I'm going to do next week. But with the extra moisture provided by the casing, do these things have a chance to grow, or am I just wasting my time?

have you tried dunking for 24 hours in the frig, and then rolling them?
MY last ones I got 4 good flushes, out of them before they petered out,
and for me after the forth is when I allways seem to get contamination.

Yeah, I dunked and rolled after each flush, but these guys are dry as a bone. They are bluing and greening up from bruising. It's time to chuck these guys, they really did produce a lot more fruit then I expected. I'm just thinking, because I've got my coir, verm and lime all ready to go, maybe I should just try and resurect these guys in a casing because the jars a just knocked up are going to take a little while to colonize.
