growht mostly on bottom
    #868725 - 09/07/02 12:09 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

ok,..heres the scene. this dude has 5 BRF cakes all a full pint size. he gets most of his growth from the very bottom of the cake, where it actually rests on the perlite. he does get growth on th top, but not as much as he would like. how can he use the WHOLE cake, sides too, to optimize growth? he gets some pretty good sive from some of these boomers , but most of them are way to small to fuck with.
someone lend a hand!?

Yah, aborts happen alot with cakes. Mushrooms grow from the hyphea (tip of the mycelia). the last area og the jar to be colonized has the most hyphea. if the bottom was the last area colonized, that's where most of the mushrooms will come from.

i think it has to do with the fact that there is more moisture closer to the bottom of the cakes, near the perlite,  than the top. it is the same way with my cakes as well, but dont worry, the mushrooms at the bottom are just as good as the ones on the top :grin: you can still use the ones you say are too small to fuck with.....if you want nice even pinning, go with a casing, havent tried it yet myself, but that seems to be the most popular method round here.... good luck 

how's your WOW?

I remember reading a tek that explained how to correct this problem.. I do not remember where I read it but it basicly told you how to build a reservoir in center the cakes consisting of Vermicuite and water. This should solve your problem and produce a higher yield.. You may want to experiment with this on a few cakes...
