Avg yeild of casings
    #632375 - 05/16/02 12:38 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I was wondering everyone's input on the average yeild of one cake casings. Please post what types of methods used.
I, for one, am not getting that great of amts. Overall. 9 dry grams per casing (using only verm to case w/ pf tek cakes)
I am working with different casing materials (including coco coir, peat moss, and verm in different mixtures)
I am hopeful in seeing the results. I should be seeing some good results next week. Please tell me your experiences. Thanks.

Well if you really want to boost your yeilds in casing, you could do a lot of things.

One, is to add more substrate to your casings. 1 cake is not going to produce that many shrooms. 9 grams dry off of one casing per flush is not bad, however, if you say used 3-4 cakes per casing, then you would expect a lot more.

If you used grains, you would get a higher yeild...and if you wanted to spawn your grain or your PF cakes into manure and/or straw, you could have a really large amount of substrate, and then fruit.

Ive always had good luck with just using straight coco, but now Im tending to start using a 50/50 mix of coir and verm. The coir is not very good in water retaining abilities.
Good luck.

If you want to increase your yeilds......spawn cakes into horse poo.

horse poo is the stuff !!!!!
