Spent cakes -- what to do??
    #827213 - 08/19/02 04:31 AM (15 years, 1 day ago)

I have 8 cakes of P. cubensis that have been in the terrarium for at least 9 weeks. My yield has sucked -- I'd say that I got about 1/4 ounce dried from the whole project. I have cold dunked each cake at least twice now and still I get minor pinning but no real fruiting. Anyway, I suspect I screwed up the process early and that is why my yield blows.

What should I do with the cakes? I'm half tempted to just crumble them up and throw them on some mulch out in the yard. I've considered maybe casing them or just throwing the fuckers out.

Any vets out there have any advice??

I don't want to put them outside yet because it is so fucking hot out I saw Satan begging for Kool-Aid.

Crumble em on pasturized poo and straw. Yeilds won't be too great and colonization might be slow since they have already been fruited on and they will remain indoors. When it gets cooler use spent cakes outdoors and they will kick ass. In their natural environment there is not keeping em down.

Next time crumble you cakes on bulk substrate to increase you yeilds.

Cut some pieces of the cakes and throw them in some new jars. That way you wont have to wait for your spores to germinate.

Does this really work? Because it would save me having to make a syringe...

Im pretty sure it does but I have never tried it with spent cakes. I have done it though with cakes that were just finished colognizing. Moe would probally know if it does with spent cakes or night.

I'm trying a variant on it by crumbling some spent substrate into some new composted manure. I'll post results (positive or negative) as soon as I see some...
