    20201014_112900.jpg anybody coming here to look around doing Cakes..listen to them...and pay attention... two of these were fruiting on the bottom and i had no idea... 0 fruits on the top...i flipped em over. . Look at the bottom left.. that whole bottom was fruited and is probably not gonna amount to much now, but ...next time Gadget....Next time ill catch it earlier!!

    They must have liked the conditions down there .i have had tubs do the same thing on me end up with a few huge mush with verm all over them. I wouldn’t think cake would do that with the perlite.

    Awesome man! I attempted to fruit from cakes my first grow and had mediocre results. Started crumbling and casing them at full colonization and got much better flushes. Your cakes already look better than mine did though haha

    Not too many hard rules in mushroom cultivation. Not sure of what kind of yield you might get but you could give it try. At the first sign of contams though, I'd toss it

    I was in the loop before the vape..and it was just nicotine...not saying your wrong. Cause who knows... but it was odd.. new strain is in order i think...i wonder how many other types will take well to cakes..cause i think i am getting the hang of it

    Ok, well. Maybe B+, I’m incubating a few cakes and a grain jar. Jar should be ready by next weekend. But the cakes going slow.
