Potting soil? I haven't heard too many great things about potting soil. Do you mean moist vermiculite?

Also, what were the conditions you had your cakes in?

it was just potting soil, casing was in a pot (plastic wrap over it) with a layer of wet verm on the bottom, the guy also misted directly, is that a problem?

mist the sides of the container you have them in...dont use just plain potting soil. I high recommend coco coir/verm casing. Cery simple and great results!

dude, AFOAF had the same problem, and it's NOT from directly misting them.
it's because of the plastic wrap on top.....you need a terrarium.  (otherwise the mushys have no space they feel closed in and won't grow big)
My freind has since gotten some 2 gallon plastic ziplocks (ala hobo) and it's working wonders :smile:
