    #1137406 - 12/13/02 05:37 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Well i havent got perlite and my jars have been ready to birth... could i put a cake in the fruiting chamber without perlite then later on when i can finally get perlite, like later in the week, put the perlite in, will this effect the cake in any way? also is there anything that needs to be done with out using perlite, like misting i'm guessing

I'm not well experienced (I'm only at my first harvesting) but I suppose that you can wait some more days for the perlite, and then put the cake in... I don't think the micelium will suffer... it's just a matter to have patience!

Put 1/2 inch water/h2o2 in the terrarium with a heating pad set on medium underneath. It gave me condensation on the sides, but I only used it overnight. Make sure you keep the cake out of the water...

From what ive read you can use pretty much anything damp at the bottom i.e a wet towel(id boil it for a bit first)clay pellets(which if work means you could prob use well cleaned and boiled gravel)But it seems you must insure the cake does not sit directly on it(to stop it wicking up to much water) but on a lid,tray or plate placed upside down to allow exess water run of.This is all just things ive read i have no first hand experiance yet :smile:

Hello,

You could case your cakes and not have to worry about perlite at all!!

Just an alternative.

Good luck!!

^^^ Definitely a good option.

Also, if you don't want to all-out case them, just dunk and roll them. Actually, I don't see why anyone WOULDN'T dunk and roll a cake. It'll keep the cake nice and moist at least until the perlite gets there, and you'll also get an awesome flush - helps put back moisture it lost during colonization. Remember to mist a lot more than you would if you had perlite - just mist the sides of the container and be careful to wipe up the small puddles of water since nothing will be there to soak it up.
