then today AFTER the large pins/mushrooms had grown i went back and the verm layers were dry. lol some were bone dry. then i thought about it and it make sense..

So what does this mid-watering actually do?
And thanks for doing teh detective work, its news to me too.

Im guessing not only would it help out with the grow, but would conserve the cakes inner resources?

that cat is amazing

yep thats basically it... less aborts after mature pins are formed... more pins go on to be fruits. as far as i see it.

hmm i bet thats were coir would come in handy
because with my casings, once those suckers come in its hard to get around them to actually water the case.. i just finished about a 10 ounce grow (still waiting for the final results on weight) but i didnt have a single abort..
i was a-stonished
but i think for cakes, they would be just fine with verm, but i still think it would be worth a try, for sciences sake

definitely... it's just a theory based on my own findings, so it would be nice to get others experience on it. casings would work differently i think. can't bombarde a casing with water quite like you can with cakes.

coir definitley promotes more pins, but i think that the end results (dry weight) would be about the same. but i'll give it a try with couple towers on my next round of tubs... if it does work and i get more weight, then hip can say "I told ya so". :)

ok, heres the ending of those two tubs... it looks like that right one did do a bit better than the left one. it has one more cake in it tho. it turns out that that right one was actually the one that was made with medium grade verm and not the left one. so maybe medium is a better way to go. dunno... could be other things too. heres the first bin done and up close.. the second is the 2nd one done and up close... the third is both.

hehe. :) well... i've never done the cyans soooo... lol i was mid 'end of finals' celebration when i wrote that. lol i'd definitely participate but hell... i'd just like to see someone try and mimic one of those tubs. not that it's like "hey do it like i am" or anything but i've learned a lot doing these tubs and i'd like to see someone else getting these flushes with cakes too. :) I think people are turned off by doing tubs like that cuz they think it's a bitch doing all those cakes, but really it's not. i make two at a time and burn thru the 48 in no time. esp. with not having to wash the jars all the way. i don't even switch out the tape over the inoc holes until after a third or so use. but i guess those that are doing cakes usually aren't in it for that kind of haul so it's a toss up. but just for some personal satisfaction, i'd like to see someone make one. :p but whatever, i love seeing everyone elses grows and teks too.

Damn you are good with cakes, man. Beautiful grow.

Loving' that cat, too. Those pics are just excellent. I'm nominating that first one for POTM! Sounds like he might be a distant relative of my own (also a devout face sleeper who likes to make me fetch from time to time).

thanks. :) yes dutch, that is plain verm. on top and it's fine grade verm.

Man those cakes really worked out :)

Good that its fine grade cause I accidentally bought 100L of fine grade instead of medium. So I guess I can use this after all :)

Looks like you can blindfold that cat with dental floss! 5oz from 12 cakes! The best I've done was 3oz from 6 cakes that were spawned to hpoo on first flush. Not the best but I didn't know what I was doing. I could probably get an extra oz from the other flushes. I'm out to beat my own record, this time have more hpoo that spawn. I've used a 3 to 5 spawn ratio before but want to try a 1 to 5 spawn ratio this time. Hopefully I can get bigger better potent fruits. :drk:
