cake question, about where mushrooms are growing
    #1499017 - 04/27/03 11:24 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

on the 12 cakes i have, they have been birthed a few weeks ago, mushrooms are having tendencies of growing on the bottom of the cake where the vermiculite is broken apart and on the bottoms, umm should i turn the cakes over and put them white down? Can i break them apart, will they grow more if in chunks not just cake.

thanks

read the faq on everything about casing and your questions will be answered. they are growing off the bottom bc thats where the most moisture is.

You could turn the cakes over, but if you give it time, you will likely get pins all over the cakes. You may want to check your humidity to be sure it's at the 95% to 100% level for cakes, since you may be getting growth down where there is heavier moisture near the verm.

Sroomery FAQs advise to birth as you did, verm down as stated here: BIRTH Direction

You should either (1) leave as a whole cake and continue to wait for more growth at the top, or (2) "crumble and case" like THIS , but don't just break them up.

ALso a good layer of moist verm on the top of hte cakes will help keep the cakes moist, thus giving more water to make fruiting bodies :smile:
