why do cakes?
    #987634 - 10/23/02 09:52 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

i started out with cakes and got horrible results. moved on to casings and got great results. almost everyone in this forum has problems with cakes. everyone that is doing cakes needs to move up to casings. its a no brainer.

I get good results both ways... I birth the cake, get two flushes and then grind the little fucker into some straw/dung and case it. Bulk casings produce more but cakes are more fun IMO.

Cakes may be a bit harder to grow, but with casings, there is a greater risk for contamination so if you lose one, you lose em all...

This is what I am saying, the first time I tried I did half cakes and half casings, I already had one batch from the casing and nothing on the cakes so I gave up and cased the rest of the cakes. I have never had very good luck with cakes. Sometimes I fruit the odd man out like after making a casing I have a spare cake or two and never been real impressed. and the risk is there but I have NEVER had a casing that I didnt get at least one flush out of.

Whats the rh of the terrarium that your cakes are in? They need a higher rh than casings, and I think that's the problem that people usually have with them.

I always use perlite and have a very high humidity level in my terrariums. Cakes always end up a success, and casings disasters. I guess its all relative to our knowledge...

What do you mean when you say your casings are disasters? Is it because they contaminate, if so it may because your humidity is too high in your terrarium for your casings. Casings don't really need that high of a humidity, and excessive amounts can cause pools of water (albeit small) to form on your casing, which become vectors for contaminates.
