ok i am incubating right now, and have a couple questions.

1. the more spores you inject per jar, the more the cake will produce right? i injected about 2 cc's per jar! what other possibilities (good/bad) could arise from this?

2. i've noticed that mycelium has started growing at the bottom of the jars. this makes sense since i could see the spore solution trickle down to the bottom during innoculation, but would it help the growth to turn the jars upside down? if so, how would it?

3. i am having trouble deciding whether or not to case on my first grow attempt. right now i am leaning on caking it, so there would be less chance for error. i would like to hear from people if they decided on casing their first time growing, how it went, and if they wished they would have done cakes instead.

thanks everyone!

1. Nope injecting more spores just might increase colonization time that's all. I even inject .5 in some jars and they just colonize a little bit slower but they all fruit the same.

2. When jars are about 50% colonized it helps to "flip" them mainly because it will increase colonization by creating a sort of "vacum" - since your dry verm layer on top of your cakes acts as a filter if you flipped them it would push CO2 out and also allow water collections within the jar to drip onto the cake.

3. Welp I can tell ya right now to throw some cakes into your terr. because their relatively easy to fruit and im guessing you want some prints right? So throw some cakes in there if you have optimal conditions in your terranium and you should see primordia within 4 days. After that well hell youll have shrooms in no time, and take some spore prints from those so you can do it again to back yourself up and add it to your collection. Id suggest fruiting at least 2 cakes so you can at least enjoy your sucess because assuming youve made it this far with your cakes 0 contams ect then fruting the cakes isnt that hard, after youve had sucess with cakes id make a casing. For your first time id recommend a strait verm casing. Follow Casing for Dummies its under the FAQ under "What is casing?". Remember you gota be a clean fuck with casings as well as everything in this hobby thats why i recommend fruiting cakes before you case first to back your ass up so if you screw up you dont come out with nothin. Once your sucessful with both - have fun experimenting and enjoying this awesome hobby!

hey thanks cgrossoman. i think i am gonna go for cakes the first time. no real need for a ton of shrooms right now, although i am sure i will get a decent amount from the cakes. right now they are incubating via the annobator. and i think i will do the old flipperoo as well. i am using filter disks and have aluminum over the tops. i am wondering if this would interfere with the gas exchange? i wouldn't think it would interfere that much seeing that the aluminum isn't air tight. what do you think?
