This one is 50/50 wheat straw/field cow manure pasturized in a pillow case in in a lime bath at a temp of 165 for one hour, then cased in a 50/50 peat/verm casing layer that was pasturized the same way as the substrate. Check em out.

They were spawned from 2 brf cakes them shredded in a blender and mixed with the cow manure/straw I then left it to incubate for 6 days uncoverd the foil and added the casing layer then covered and incubated for 4 more days. I then put in my terranium and covered with wax paper wich is still on them right now. For light I have 2 48" plant spectrum flouros that are timed for 12/12. Oh yeah and they are multi spore thanks for the inspiration mycotopians

haha,
see
i told y'all grain is obsolete
look at those,
who needs to mess
with 24 hours soaks
and shaking jars
and filter disks,
etc.
just basic cake tek
used as spawn,
nothing could be any easier
or do any better.

Thats why I've never gotten a PC or tried to do grains. It doesn't seem to be worth it when I can spawn pretty much any type of substrate with plain old BRF cakes.

works for me.

Yea but i seem to find that a quart jar of grain colonizes twice as fast as a cake if not faster.

and the quantity of spawn is much greater

the pf cakes done 'round these parts have only proven to me that they aren't the way to go

Used as they are supposed to be used and in casings, havent tried them as spawn though

very poor results with them, slow grows, poor fruiting, smaller fruits

but most things work differently for different people

as is the case with most things, it's probably just me............

lol

Heh, I think that the real thing going on here is an awesome substrain has shined through! Never the less, that is awesome!

Whats the size on that tray? Looks like the smaller 3"x10"x2" pans.

Certainly looks superb friend. Do some bigger ones, I think that you are up to it.

nope.
you aren't thinking around the artificial barriers
imposed by 'conventional' thinking

why do qts finish faster than half pints ?
because you cannot shake half pints.
but who the hell sez
you gotta put cake substrate in jars ?
put it into bags
and the advantage of grain is gone,
you can now 'shake' cake substrate.
as for points of inoculation,
one crumb of colonized verm is as small as any kernel of millet
or smaller
so again that's just not a valid observation
because it presumes the cake spawn
is not finely powdered as it should be.

Due to the fact that I have never and out of say 20 times trying to colonize any type of grain. I have always thought that any size grain jar should colonize in two weeks. But every time I tried it would be four weeks after PC and never had any colonize 100%. Cakes are easy efficient and when you blend them down there are well over thousands of inolulation points and when you give each cakes 5cc of spore solution they can colonize 100% in a week and that is fast. Just my personal preference

I'm quickly becoming a grain supporter, my quart jars are colonizing so much quicker then my cakes, and theres quite a bit more spawn in a quart jar, with just as much spore solution. Now that I have a decent PC, grains are just as easy as cakes, create more spawn, and are cheaper.
