Find out for yourself. Do a search. Most people will say casings. Some will say cakes. Bigger yields on casings.

Yea, I cased one of my cakes and I'm allowing several other cakes to fruit... I wanna choose one or the other, prolly casings, but wanna get people's opinions first.

well...opinions are pretty much like arssholes...everyone has one. I'm sure you'd get a pleasent mix of those who prefer casing to the cakes and vice versa. It all depends on what works best for you!!!

Try some of both. In a previous life I found that my cakes produced shrooms more quickly than casings assuming all jars were 100% colonized. Casings however gave more shrooms in the end. My previous self did both beause he got shrooms faster that way. He couldn't wait to trip............and also wanted a supply for later as well. Just some thoughts.

Not only do casings give a higher yield, but i find them much easier than cakes. I have had a lot of problems with cakes (I never got them to work) but i have had a lot of luck using birdseed and 50/50+ casings.
People kept telling me that i shouldn't move onto cased birdseed untill i got cakes to work, but I found birdseed to be really cheap and simple.

It seems to be a personal preference, but there are advantages and disadvantages to both. First, casing does provide a larger yield, but that is if you do it right. Casings are more prone to contamination in the beginning than cakes are, and in this sense, if a casing becomes contaminated, you lose all the cakes you used in it. The mycelium in a casing takes longer to penetrate the substrate because of the amount of substrate and the size of the casing. In the end, I'd say that casings are a better idea, but cakes are better for the beginner...

Some peaple prefer soup, others prefer stew, others prefer pot pie. Why, is a matter of personal preferance.

The same holds true, here.

The raccoon prefers bulk substrates, because cakes will not yeild 2500 gram flush?s of big healthy stout shrooms.

Here are 10 in a pile that averaged over 40 grams each (wet) & was only a small part of a single flush off bulk/dung substrate.

Those ten are larger & weigh more than a single or several cakes combined. :grin:

6T  :tongue:

amen, i would have to agree that doing both is the way to fast and steady supply. it also can give you a chance to experience a two strain trip, combining the effects of two strains can be quite enjoyable  :wink:

Some people that favor casing are very...zealot like in their feelings. I think it is really up to you. If you are a dealer then go for bulk, if its just you, try both. So far, cakes are pretty fun and very nifty looking but I will be trying casing next just for the experience. Oh yeah, that's what it's all about, experience.

Nope, don't use potting soil, there are much better alternatives.

Well....if you can't get Peat (where do you live, Russia?!) then what about straight verm. Or Coco coir/verm mix. Or you could just do cakes. Soil isn't great cause it contaminates really easy, and does not support great mycelium colonization.
