Equador Strain Yeild
    #4929594 - 11/13/05 07:43 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

I recently ordered an Equador syringe from sporesource and was just curious on the average yeild of this compared to other strains. Yes i am aware that potency is not all that different from one strain to another and i know somebody is going to end up saying "a shroom is a shroom man", but i really do wanna know that in comparison to other strains, what is the yeild of the equador strain assuming that i do the PF tek step by step with no contamination and i did use dunking.

Good Luck.

Why do I keep reading that pf-tek sucks?
From some of the pics I've seen on this site, the brf cakes look like they fruited nicely and with descent weight.
I have been picking "active" shrooms in the wild for many years and I sit here at my computer desk looking at my rubber maid tub which is at the most 2-1/2 square feet surface area thinking to myself that tub sure looks a hell of lot easier to harvest then throwing on my rain gear and searching 2-5 acres of forest in hopes for a yield.

I'm gonna try the cakes and see where that leads.

PF sucks because BRF is not nutrient rich as grains or poo

Your yield will be crap (less surface area on a cake as opposed to a casing will more sur.area = more mushies.)
Your potency will be crap...
Your efforts will not be as rewarding as with casing/spawning to poop

That is why, IMO, PF sucks...

Well thanks for that...please note I was just asking a question.
Again thanks for your opinion, but I have another question...
So what your saying is it all about surface area right?
What about taking say 4-5 jars and pressing them into a pizza like disc and placing them directly in PMP?
Then you have surface area just like a casing,will that work?
I dont really care about potency because from what I've read here about brf cakes and trip reports...I think its all I need.

Thanks.

brf sucks.You can also make flours out of wbs, rye, and rye grass seed.
I like rye grass seed flour the best are should I say my KSSS did.

I wouldn't cut a 1/2pint any more than in half.

You'll get a bigger first flush off all those, but subsequent flushes won't be much.

(subsequent flushes produce fewer fruits, so doing this will give you more mushrooms. Unless you're shooting for size of the fruit, where as 2nd/3/4th flushes will give you some biggens)

I dont' understand, if the PF method sucks and so does brf then why have i been seeing pictures on this forum of great results that come from somebody using the PF method. Personally these pics are alot better than alot of casing pics i've seen (proportionally). The post that i saw this on was posted two days ago.

Are you going to take a pictures word for it, or people who grow mushrooms?

I personally have never done cakes (in the process though) But casing BRFspawned to poo...the SMALL fruits from these casings are as big as BIG fruits off cakes (with the occasional exception)

There are some nice pics of cakes, yes, but if you're wanting to make your effort worth-while (IMO!)...move to casings...

Casing will provide you with a bigger first flush due to more surface area (which is better for newbs, most of which do cakes, and are impatient)

But whatever man, continue your PF tek and have fun with that!

PF Cakes will not give you a flush like this (and this not even anything spectacular):
So just imagine a PF Cake flush...

Awesome, i would love to move to casing but i'm very low on cash right now. the reason i chose casing was simply to get a feel of the entire fungi life process and get a general idea of what i'm doing. I'm using my yeild for personal purposes and don't necessarily need the amount that casing gives.

PF Tek is a good start for you man, move on up when you feel you are ready for it.

Ya, no-one's pushing you for casing if you're not ready...

I just strongly suggest it, as your efforts will be more rewarded.
You say PF is good because it gives you the amount you need?
Well think about this...
Do a nice sized casing and harvest 3X as much as a cake and vola!
Won't need to tend to it everyday...1 casing eliminating 3 cakes saves you 3X as much time!

It's cool though. I understand your money situation, I did a lot of bartering and haggleing before I started, trade Led Zep CD's 1, 2, and 3 for 5 spore prints and syringes...

Thanks man, You have been a great deal of help.
I'm gonna bite it here...but can you introduce more nutes to the cake after the the first flush? Like maybe something in the water used in the dunking?
sorry.

I've heard of people dissolving organic fertillizers into water and dunking in that with great sucess.

Just don't go overboard as the Nitrogen content if too high, can burn your myc.

Nice to hear help is appreciated, You're Welcome :wink:

ok old thread, but the comment on adding nutes to the dunk water piqued my curiosity. would adding say some foxfarm grow big 6-4-4 to the dunk water be beneficial?
