Can you really have too much water?
    #1534740 - 05/09/03 03:21 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I'm sittin here thinking... the PF Tek says you need to make the dual-chamber terrarium with the mist guard or whatever, you know the plexi-glass... anyway, it says that any large drops of water that are sprayed directly on a cake can and will kill the mycelium on a cellular level, aka drowning. Now if this so, then how the Hell can you dunk the cakes? I know "everyone" dunks there cakes and I never see a shield in any of the terrarium pics, just wide open space.... so what's the deal?

keep looking, alot of people use a shield, OR just clean your top lid with alchol very very good. people use them just not much because they clean the lid with alchol..

you can dunk the cakes to rehydrate em. then they do something??

Thats a good q, i was thinking u should get water droplets of the cakes cuz it would cause contamination, but now that i think about it that doent seem right, u can try it w/o a drip shield and see i guess, the bird outside my window said he just uses perlite though and doesnt spray or have a sheild

u know it aint funny when u aint got no money and the clock strikes 420 and u wanna get high

The only thing I can think of water droplets doing is causing contam. I had MAD water drops last time and it didn't do anything but, well, cause massive contamiation. I've wiped down everything with bleach, then iso alochol, then hydrogen peroxide. now it works great :0


As I felt the soft cool mud squish between my toes, I thought, Man, these are not very good shoes!
