What are the optimum conditions for a cake to fruit in?
Cakes like and need a high humidity environment, however it is provided.
Cakes like and need a high humidity environment, however it is provided. You need about 95% RH (relative humidity) for cakes to produce optimally. They need more humidity because they do not produce as much RH themselves (as casings and bulk runs do), and because you cannot easily supplement their moisture content (without having some inner reservoir or wet vermiculite on top and bottom). The humidity must be provided either by means of a passive humidification like moist perlite or clay in a sealed terrarium or an active humidification like a setup where fresh moist air is provided by a cool mist or ultrasonic humidifier. The appropriate fruiting temperatures forPsilocybe cubensis(TMC) are 74 -78 °F but temperatures as cold as 68 should work out.
