Birthing Direction?
    #1028976 - 11/06/02 06:46 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

The teks don't seem to be to clear about one thing - when you birth the PF cakes onto the lids, do you then just put them in the terrarium like that, or do they need to be turned upside down so as to be oriented in the direction in which they were while in the jar? Does it matter?

From just reading about cultivation, it's my understanding that it doesn't matter.

Ok, that's kind of the impression I have too, although one of the teks does mention that they should be flipped so as to reorient them as they were in the jar. Anyone real experienced wanna put in their two cents?

i put my jars in the terrarium with perlite,,but on a wire mesh rack to keep them off the perlite but allow air flow around the cakes,,,all my mushies sprouted from the bottom,verm side,,because it was nearer to the moisture,so i just flipped the verm side up and let them grow,,there kicking ass so im not complaining,,might wanna give the rack a try...

In reply to:

Regardless of WHY they grew this way, the wire rack in case of such an event is a great tip. Thanks.
