    I am starting my grow and have a few questions. How much lc do I use on half pint brf? I plan on making up a few dozen cakes and am wondering if I can use a large tub like over 100qrt to fruit. If so how deep should my perlite be?

    Never had much luck with brf, just a few fruits so I can't help you there. But 1-2cc in each jar. Welcome to the site.

    So my question is why do people do cakes when I have heard you can just shred them into a bulk sub? Seems like BRF colonization is fast but I am trying my first attempt at it... just shave it in like when breaking grains up? I know you have to make sure every bit of the jar is colonized also but I feel you get more of a stretch if you bulk it into even coir and verm but I am a noob so someone correct me please...

    Plus why waste the lc when you dont need to? You can stretch them along way

    Youd be surprised how much boom comes off a half pint cake, so yeah you can potato grate some cakes into a tub or shoebox bins but youll get to the point that maybe doing cakes gives u something to do so youll have a bin just for cakes.. But maybe not, maybe youll go to the strip joint for happy hour after you grab a slurpee at Jiffymart

    Lol that last line tho :laugh1:
    Right I will be at the point sometime where I can use a left over tub for cakes! I have heard mixed results from cakes as most people say they are good for getting clones and expanding cultures but I have never done a cake...

    Really... Shit i just have a cheap small pc and it dont work right so ive been laid off of grain and then i bought steralized bags from out grow not even steralized, phukked me then an LC from a trusted source was contam and i lose another few weeks after i lost about a year to fungus gnats.. Finally i switched up everything new and started over, omg it was so hard to throw everything into the trash and over the railing into the pavement below and people wonder why theres splotches of verm dirt in the apt parking lot.

    Luckily i had a friend who sent me a box of colonized agar and some LC then he got anal and disappeared on me so i stuck the whole box in the fridge. So i took a little jelly jar 3 small pieces of broken glass and squirted in 10 ml of spring water, pc for 30 min and then i just cut a couple strips out of the agar and flip them in the jar and shake it real good punctured a hole in the lid sucked out the quick LC and... Whalla.. My cakes be poppin like Mary Poppins
