Graduating cakes.
    #915440 - 09/28/02 07:29 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I'm following the PFTek for Simple Minds doc.  I have an idea, and this being my first grow, I'm not sure if it will work.  The gist of it is, use one fruiting chamber for cakes in different stages of growth.  I'm not saying its an amazing, original idea.  Maybe everybody does it all the time.  I didn't see anything about it though.

So say I innoculate a number of jars in different batches.  Say its 4 to 8 jars in each batch and I'll have 6 batches.  Some batches have different strains.

Batch 1 is fully colonized and goes into the fruiting chamber, then a week later, batch 2 is ready, so I throw it in there with the first batch.  Basically, each week I put in a new batch.  So I have freshmans, sophomores, juniors, etc. coming in and eventually the older batches "graduate" as they finish flushing and I take them out.

Is this a viable, practical way to do it?

An alternative would be to grow everything in one big batch, but using smaller batches gives me a chance to learn from my mistakes, and not waste as much of my materials on early failures.  Plus I can experiment with different factors on different batches and compare the results with previous batches.

Or I could have more fruiting chambers, but if I can use one without negative consequences, then that's what I'd use.

Or I could be more patient and space out the batches.  No, I don't want to do that.  Give me lots of mushrooms now!  :grin:

You can place cakes of different stages into the terrarium together, they'll be fine

It's all personal preference and how much room you have and how much you want to grow in a certain amount of time.
