Should I dunk or inject?
    #1452769 - 04/12/03 04:45 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Squirtle has some cakes that are a week to two weeks from being fully colonized. This is my question: Should Squirtle use the typical dunk tek to hydrate his cakes before placing them in the fruiting chamber, or should he use distilled sterilized water placed in syringes and then inject that water into the cakes? I don't know the pros and cons of these procedures so I'm looking for some help. Thanks a bunch.

You mean after fully colonized right? Squirtle would be foolish to dunk before that time.

Both methods work very well. From what I've seen dunking is a little safer cause if you fuck up and start a contam with dunking you can see it cause it is on the outside of the cake with injecting you don't know for sure.

Injecting water into an uncolonized jar is a contamination risk and should only be done if growth stalls due to the substrate drying out.

After colonization is achieved there is no need to inject. Just birth it and dunk it.  :laugh:
