Bird Seed Cakes/Casings Query
    #995793 - 10/27/02 12:55 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Has anyone tried to fruit bird seed cakes, or should bird seed always be cased? I'd like to get a little feedback before I plop a bird seed cake into my terrarium and cross my fingers. I currently have 28 fully colonized cakes and I'm lookin for a way to get fruits asap while I wait for the slower bulk substrate and casings to do their thing. My strain is Cambodian. Thx for any thoughts.

I wouldnt see any problem just using cakes without casing, although casing youll get way more mushrooms. Ill leave this open though for someone who has done many cakes, ive only done a few, and all were BRF, but I dont see much difference

It'd seem to me that birdseed cakes would fall apart pretty easily once it started to loose moisture (as all cakes inevidibly do), and it be pretty hard to re-saturate the cake once it lost moisture. I don't think a birdseed cake would hold up in a dunk. But then again, I'm just speaking in theory since I never tried it, so maybe someone who has can make me look like a dumbass.

I would like to know too, but I have heard of people having a lot of trouble fruiting straight rye cakes. Not sure why that would be..

I have fruited a 4 birdseed cakes and they did produce shrooms but not as many as a brf cake. They didn't seem to fall apart any more than my brf cakes did.

Why don't you risk one or two of your 28 cakes and try it? Then you can let us know how it worked. Take a chance and be a pioneer. :cool:
