Tripping off a cake?
    #687778 - 06/19/02 07:19 AM (21 years, 9 months ago)

I've got 4 cakes that haven't grown any shrooms and haven't done anything for 2 and a half weeks. I've got other cakes that are ready to come into my growing chamber so these have to come out. So last night I decided to soak them in orange juice and extract all the good stuff out of the cakes. What do you guys think? Will this work? Have any sugestions?

There is a tek on the grow section about this, i think it uses cranberry juice, but it will probably all work the same...be sure to mixc it up well

when i did it i crumbeld the cake into a large beer glass and added cranberyjuice and some 95% drinkable alcohol.
then i put the glass in a bowl and filled the bowl with boiled water thus making a bath to the glass.
i stirred once in a while for about a hour and thenfilterd.
worked great! just make sure your using a cake wich started pinning coz i think the mycelium prduces much larger psylicin quantities in this stage.

i dont know if its too much, but i think its enough more efficiant to be worth the work.

IMO its a stupid waste of time, sorry. Just my opinion though.

Sometimes it takes 3 weeks for them to start fruiting.

It can take 2 months for them to finally stop fruiting so why do you have more cakes ready without the terrarium space?

You prolly dont have conditions right either if you haven't gotten pins yet. 98+ humidity and temps around 75F and fresh air exchanges...If you have these conditions then your cakes will fruit guaranteed. You're just a little impatient I think.

Another reason why it's a bad idea is because vermiculite is a known carcinogen!

You can get 2-3 dry ounces of shrooms from twelve 1/2 pint cakes! Think what you've given up by doing that.

I'm in the process of growing shrooms. Do you mean 2-3oz per flush w/12 1/2 pint jars or after 4 flushes in total?

Thanks

I'll wait and dunk the cakes for the 3rd time and let the co2 build up. I'm just getting frusterated this is my first attemp and I can't get the darn things to pin for me. I don't know maybe I should just give up on growing all together.

I'm in the same position as you.. I really want to trip but I got no mushies!
What I do have is 18 fully colonized pints of Birdseed and 10 fully colonized half pints of BR/Verm.

If I could get a couple ounces I would be in heavan!

Insert (quitting, mushroom cultivation) in their respective places. Hell, I'm growing for the first time and if they all get contam or whatever that's more of an incentive to prove the contams Gods wrong. Muhahahaha

I see your problem now. CO2 buildup.

Cakes need fresh air to pin.
