Injecting cakes with water?
    #667448 - 06/07/02 01:43 PM (19 years, 6 months ago)

Hey everyone,

I have read alot of info that said if the cake gets water during pinning/fruiting the mushies grow quite a bit bigger. Can you inject a cake with water? Is there a tek for this that i havent heard of?

Thanks,
Fd

You'd probably get better results from the 'dunk' tek (just ask baraka) at - http://mycotopia.net/teks.html. Also do a search on the forum for 'dunk' etc.

One way I've heard of adding water is to push a drinking straw into the middle of the cake, and periodically add water. I have never done this before, but have read about it here. I would start with small ammounts of water, and work your way up. Or, you could try reading the FAQ/searching for a "drinking straw tek" or something similar.

yes you can inject water into cakes.

when I did cakes I used to always inject water into them at birth instead of dunking before the first flush.....and I got some great results.
10cc at birth......and then 10cc every other day!

then I would dunk after the 1st flush and 2nd flush.

I never wasted my time after a 3rd flush....the cakes would be spent.

This picture is Acadian Coast BRF cakes....they were injected with water.

they exploded!!!!

good luck!

yes Banshee i did.

steril syringe......sterile needle.....sterile water (purified water).....wiped needle after each cake with 99% alcohol.

I don't flame needles....99% alcohol will kill anything.

No flaming, and just alcohol? What type of alcohol? Denatured? Isopropyl? Something else? Thanks!

I flame the needle....and then take alcohol on a cotton swab and wipe the needle down. This cools it significantly. I do this all the time and have not had problems. From the time I flame the needle until i use it....its only about 20 seconds. Works fine.

Injecting cakes does make an improvement. If you can i would advise dunking though, because its easier and you dont have to mutilate the cakes as much. Id say dunking is 100% efficient for water absorbtion and id say that injecting cakes is harder and 75% efficient because you have to open the center of the cake which gives better chance of contam and you obviously have more surface area when you dunk.
