WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH 48 CAKES?
    #4607327 - 09/01/05 10:16 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

So yeah, I guess I went a little over kill, but hey, when you start something new jump all in right!  Right now I have three fruiting chambers, in odd locations, but more on that later? anyway, soon I?m going to be birthing 48 healthy cakes? anybody have a creative relatively cheap idea on how to fruit these babies?  Did I mention I?m new to this? yeah I recently learned what TEK stood for? I?m not slow? really? I?m not. :crazy2:

I need a fruiting chamber, relatively cheap, that I can keep in one location.

(By time it births, I?ll know if my current casing was a successful.)

Thats a lot of cakes, the cheapest would be not to birth them at all, and grow them out invitro, very space efficient.
What strain is it?
You are better off working with grains than 48 jars.

By invitro what do you mean?
Strain: Amazonian (sp?)
I had a syringe that was what I thought old and over heated (mail truck in 100 degree summer all day) so I used all my jars in the PF method because that's all I know (second time doing this, and this could be a disaster). I wasn't expecting 48 of the cakes to be doing as well as they are. So here I am.

I haven't moved on to the grain teks, still so much for me to learn with what I have.

Invitro means you leave them in the jars to grow. The shrooms grow all crushed up against the sides of the jars. You open and harvest, dunk them in water and stick them back in. No terranium is needed, no fanning, misting etc. But the yeild is usually lower.
The top 2 sticky links will turn up lots of info if you search for invitro

I'd grow some of the cakes out in a small fruiting chamber...say 8 cakes.

I'd case the rest...and put the casings in another fruiting chamber.

This way you can see how both methods work.

Plus this way if you fuck up your first casings you will at least get some fruits from the cakes.

Personally, I'd spawn every single one of them to manure.  :mushroom2:

:thumbup: :thumbup: yep....but I like roadkills idea too....it's good to see how it is done both ways for a new cultivator.  48 cakes is a lot, so you can try a wide assortment of casings and different ways to grow. 

I would do some to poo, some just cakes, some to 60/40 coir, some with peat/oyster/verm....you have a lot to work with.  I would try one of each and then from there decide wich one works best for you and use that for future grows.

If you are looking for a fairly cheap fruiting chamber you could look into a martha....you can fit a lot in there, and it is fairly priced.

martha is about 30 bux
cool mist about 20 bux
ultrasonic about 20-30 bux
hoses/pipes etc about 20 bux.

if you are looking for cheaper than that you are going to have to look into a PMP setup, but you won't be able to really fit all too much in there depending ont he size of the tub.  martha is the best for doing a lot in 1 location.  A decent sized pmp would be able to hold a couple of nice sized casings, but that's about it.

thanks for the advice guys, i think i'm going to do a couple casings, use a few to case to poo, and just try a whole bunch of teks. I've seen some teks better and simpler to follow on here, any you all suggest?

you don't case to poo.

you spawn your substrate to poo.

That's a right good amount of cakes man. You've got several things you can do. I'd suggest the same as stated above. Take half of the cakes or so and double end case them for a tetarrium of some sort and use some of the other cakes to get your feet wet in bulks if you want. Cakes make great spawning material for bulks. Use small trays for your first runs with bulk materials. Don't try to go overboard yet. Once you get the small trays down, then go bigger if you want to....

My favorite, and probably one of the easiest, casing methods IMO is 60/40.

Don't thank me, thank Roadkill, he wrote it.

You can get some nice poo from a vendor here, Tenn. studd. If you live near a horse field, you could also pick up some yourself. You want the fairly weathered poo, not fresh out of the horse.

you can find coco coir in petstores...all of the onese i've ever been to have it. If you ask the 15 year old genius that works there for coco coir, they will probably look at you like you are crazy.

Ask for "reptile bedding"....one name brand of the stuff is "eco-earth". Then they will probably know what you are talking about.

well, a martha is a "martha stewart closet" that is found at k-mart. You can search the posts to see how some people have them setup and what they look like. Here is a thread of a greenhouse that hippiechick setup. The martha is very similar to this and setup is very similar. this should give you an idea. she has a lot of good pics in this thread.

You see that turd in the middle of the pic? You don't want that. You a nice, dry manure like you see else where in the picture. Some of this manure is heading for the compost bin. Well the stuff not suitable for substrate yet. Simply check with the owners of a horse stable for some free manure. People that house horses or give riding lessons on horses. They won't mind if you come out to clean up some manure from their property for your mothers flower beds. Ask first though.........

yeah i went to petsmart, looked all over, i did see a repitle bedding in the section but it didn't list what it was, so i opted against it.

On a side note: I love this site, you are all very informative and curtious and i really do enjoy the enviroment and community. Thanks so much for helping. I'll post some pics in about a month so you can see the fruits of your labor.

as for the martha that eases my mind a little, when i was in the service a while back ago, i had a dream about martha stewart, it scared me... now i know it was only an epiphany!
