question about misting / putting vermiculite on the tops of cakes after already rolled?
    #11313854 - 10/24/09 08:11 PM (7 years, 11 months ago)

im 48 hours into fruiting, and i have some nice mycelium growing on the vermiculite all over the cakes. i only fruited 3, and cased the rest.

i was wondering how long should i mist the cakes for? do i stop when i see pins? or keep misting a couple times a day, everyday, even while there are mushrooms growing?

also, in some pics on here, ive seen people putting a bunch of dry vermiculite on the tops of their cakes even after they rolled them? whats the advantage to putting a bunch of vermiculite on the top compared to just rolling it normally and fruiting?

if they look dry, mist, the whole time. just dont pressure spray your pins, lightly mist the cakes.

its not dry its moist verm for a extra water supply.  not much of a benifit when your manually misting andf fanning.
