I have 2 pe. Bulk one with a casing of coco Core and with a casing of vermiculite! Neither are throwing muchroom and it's been a long time and they are both fully colonized I noticed mushrooms growing off the sides between the cake and plastic so I too them out and took the plastic off and flipped them upside down in a mano tub hopping they would come from the bottom and sides has anyone Hurd of this working? https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180213/2cfce21049fdba1c4e848013564e8a0e.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20180213/0bc6a54bd9f0024e818456ba113ef18a.jpg

You can't upload pics from Tapatalk, which I'll be glad to see go when it happens.

PE generally takes longer to fruit, you didn't give any info on how long its been since you cased them.

Oh yes it' been over a month and I had just added a casing a few weeks ago! I may have done bad but I took the plastic wrap off and flipped it upside down in a mano tub because there were some growing off the side then felt like I messed up and flipped it back right side up! I guess I was hopping they would grow off the sides and bottom witch would become the new top! Is that posable? My casing is just coco core!

Yeah I've never heard of anyone flipping the cake upside down a couple times, which may have stressed or bruised it and caused it to stall. Patience is an important key to this hobby.

Personally I use a 50/50 mix for casing. Peat moss and verm. It stays fairly aerated and holds moisture well.

If its not contaminated then you could just keep misting and fanning until either pins appear or it tams.

Thank you! For the helpful advice! Would one think of breaking up a bulk cake into many smaller bulk tubs and have them recolinize other bulk?

      Fungi is right man. From what I have seen so far in this thread I can tell you haven't done your homework. Because of this you are missing very very important steps. Go to the tek section of the forum and read the dub tub tek, the z-tub tek, monotub tek and really any other tek that you see from MushZombie. Specifically you need to read the 6qt dubtub tek it's the most in depth and thorough tek that teaches everything from start to finish. Even if you don't plan on actually doing a 6qt dubtub you still need to read this tek. I'm sure me and fungi both probably read this tek like 10 times. And of course once you get into the reading, pick a tek and stick to it 100% for your first several grows. My recommendation is to not try the Monotub. I tried it as one of my first ones and it failed miserably, hell I'm almost a year in and only have 50% chance with monotubs.

      So to summarize, do your homework from what has been written specifically for new growers doing so will help you dramatically.

      Did you say your doing them 2 and 3 times a week? If so thats the issue. The body builds up a tolerance to shrooms after just one dose and it takes 7-14 days for that tolerance to reset.

      Boooo-rrrriiiinggg.. lol so you think it’s not worth the trouble huh? I picked up wbs and jiffy today too, I got a 23 qt presto coming to my door tomorrow and myco bags coming on Sunday. So yea, I’m switching earlier than I thought I would.. I’m all in baby!! So even for penis envy you think it’s better just to fruit them as cakes?

      Just fruit the cakes as cakes. Spawn grain spawn to bulk sub.
