sorry for all the questions guys, i feel like i'm being a pain in the ass....but......i'm new at this. *giggle* After the cakes come out of the jars, what do ya put them into? I've seen pics of a foil tray and tupper ware containers. do you have to put a soil type thing into it? if so what? or do ya just plop the contents of the jar into the (foil tray) and it spreads out by itself? also i saw in some pics trays with a white layer of stuff on the floor of the tank. what was that? what was it fot?

Thats what this forum is for...questions
But I suggest you go read some of the teks provided in the grow/find section and get a basic understanding of things. Read the MMGG.

>>After the cakes come out of the jars, what do ya put them into?

That depends on what method you are using. If growing from cakes, you can put them in a sealed rubbermaid container with some wet perlite and fan them out about twice a day.
If growing from casings, you crumble the cakes up and put a 1/2" to 1" thick layer of moist vermiculite/peat on top. Thought I would advise you become knowledgable with growing cakes before you attempt the casing method, as it requires more steps and has a higher chance of things going wrong. Cakes are pretty much foolproof.
Casings are essentially a layer of mycelium, topped off with a layer of moist substance, usually vermiculite. The casing layer (vermiculite) provides a humid microclimate for the mycelium to grow into and form mushrooms. Casings do produce more mushrooms than cakes, but like I said, more things can go wrong.
Go with cakes for your first time and you wont be dissapointed
