birthing cakes in a water resevoir
    #1885726 - 09/05/03 05:23 PM (14 years, 7 months ago)

if mycella will still live when submerged in water, if when birthing cakes they were places in a 1/4 inch of water/h202, in the terranium, then the cake should have a good sterile source of water for it to consume as it uses more

am i missing something here?

it seems like a very simple way of keeping cakes in full hydration to me

This is the concept behind placing the cakes directly onto perlite. Do not submerge them for extended periods, the mycelia under the water will die and rot. Setting them on damp perlite does not kill the mycelia but it does give it a water reserve.
