my cakes are subborn
    #1613401 - 06/06/03 01:02 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

my cakes are subborn. first i kept them in the jars with the tops off. nothing happened after 2 weeks. so i took them out of the jars with the verm towards the light. normail growing conditions. perlite method. one cake grew a mean looking shroom and another one barely started but it is growing fine. so slow, another week an a half has gone by. should i be doing anything? i misted them today with distilled water. not too much though. my friend did that and it seems to be working for him. cool white flourencent tube being used.

im still learning much about this (for my dog of course)
so dont take what i say as gospel

the normal things people would say are to make sure your humidity and temperature are within the correct ranges, and your cakes might be a tad on the dry side. once again i cant verify any of this, but if the cake does seem dry (light-weight when held seems to be the easiest way to tell)..you might try dunking it for 12+ hours for rehydration, or even misting with sterile water might help. a top layer of vermiculite might also help retain water, if you havent got one in place already.

im sure more experienced people will have more reliable information for you, this post is merely to offer ideas and get you on the right track.

put them in a ziplock bag full of water, in the fridge, and dunk them overnight... then proceed to double end case those bitches  :grin:
