wet cakes?
    #1166703 - 12/24/02 08:15 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Ok, I have water droplets on a cake from a new bubbler setup (problem has now been corrected) should I leave the droplets or try and blot them off? The cake has been in the terrarium for five days and is doing very well.

Cakes need to be hydrated, but water on the cakes can interfere w/ pin formation.

I only blot if I feel the droplets are big enough to cause problems. Sometimes the mycelium takes care of the job for me...
