Should I dunk my cakes?
    #1503896 - 04/29/03 12:02 PM (14 years, 29 days ago)

I have 4 growing chambers of 3 different strains going on and none of them are developing in the same manner even though I treat them all the same. I have pins in one, another is growing fuzzies on every cake, and the other two look dried out. The 2 boxes that look dry have had an average temp. of 76.8 F and the average RH has been a fairly steady 97.3%. I don't understand why they look dry, no fuzzies at all. They are taking on a pale yellow appearance instead of frosty white. Should I dunk them? If so, please explain as I have found contrasting info.

A dunk can't hurt.

How are you humidifying? And what type/quality of hygrometer are you using?

take your cake out of the jar and discard the verm top. fill the jar up with a lil spring water, stick your cake in so its submerged and floating, screw on the lid. throw the bitch in the fridge.

I'm using an ultrasonic humidifier. Same one takes care of all the growing chambers. Perlite covers the bottom of both chambers with the dry cakes. I'm using Oregon Scientific digital Thermo Hygrometer-3 channel. Can I trust it's accuracy?
