Flip my cakes?
    #2076782 - 11/06/03 01:13 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I started my PF cakes in beakers right side up, and then ended up putting them on their sides to let the air get at the bottoms, which were slow to colonize.

Fast forward to a couple days ago, when I noticed some shroomlets poking out, and birthed the jars. The weird thing is, all the pinning as at the bottom of the cakes, originally the top, where I filled in the dry vermiculite. The shrooms are growing straight out like spokes on a wheel.

Is this because of the way the jars were situated, or is this just because there's only enough moisture near the bottom of the tank, where the wet perlite is? I mist them 4 times a day with a very fine mister (but no mist shield in the tank). Would flipping the cakes and brushing off some of the dry vermiculite help them in any way?

I don't know whats going on with the shroomies but it sounds to me like you are misting to much. You don't need to mist every time you fan. Sometimes you only need to mist once a day or even less.

Instead of taking off the verm moisten it so the shrooms have some water to draw off of. Makes for bigger shrooms.

But what do I know about cakes
