Cake or Case P's
    #577824 - 03/13/02 01:11 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

AFOAF has very little experience in the fruiting stage of the mushroom lifecycle
and was wondering if he should case or cake the P strain from PF?

There is 2 sizable clear rubermaid containers (duck taped up the sides for light to only enter the top), ultrasonic humidification, along with a holes cut in the bottom coverered with filter disks.

Any suggestions on the air exchange would also be appriciated...

Sounds good to me so far. Take some H2O2 and put that in your humidifier. That will be supplying your fresh air intake. Every now and again you might want to open the top just to fan for a few seconds, but that might not be nesecery(spelling?). It depends on your whole set-up overall, size, positive pressure, ect.
I highly recommend you to case. Your new to this hobby and I know this, so your going to have to trust somebodys word. Trust mine!
Your set-up sounds very close to mine. We'll see once it's up and running. Anyway my set-up is one of the best i've seen so far. It's perfect for casings.
There is nothing to worry about if you decide to go with casing. I relize alot of people seem scared, but if you came this far why throw it all away on a cake. You've done all the hard work up till this point. Bigger and better shrooms are just a casing away.
It sounds like to me that you are looking for that xtra little push to make yourself feel alittle reashured that you can do it. I'm sure you've read many tek/reports on casings vs. cakes.
Cakes bruise, humidity must be very consistant, spacing between each cake, rehydrating, ect....then what follows are some shrooms that you might be happy with.
Casings are really better off. I could go on and on but you can read all the post's on here.
GoodLuck!

PF has really almost 'engineered' the PF strain to work well with the PF tek. Casings may work with this strain, but I would stick with cakes.
