Yeah pick them when the veil breaks but I would keep the temp. right where you got it. I stay around 85 and get monsters. Most are 30-60 grams. Sometimes you just get a few smaller ones especially on cakes.

Yea, when the veal breaks its time to pick'em. But i would lower the temp to 74-76. When you say your hummidity is fairly high, how high?
If your hummidity is around 80 you'll tend to get smaller fruits, due to the lack of moisture in the air. You need to have 95-100 hummidity for fruiting cakes.  Good luck!

:smile:

my humidity is around 95-100%.  the temps are normally around 78f but yesterday it got a bit hot.  so i woke up this morning to go to work and i checked them.  they were all torn away so i picked them.  i got 26g wet from that one cake and a shitty 8g wet from another (it wasnt dunked).  so now i have a few questions.

1 - why were they so small?  they looked like they were going to be monsters and then the veils just tore away.  it was a little weird too because they were in the shape of a thumb instead of, umm, ball-ish at the top.

2 - what can i do to get bigger fruits next time?

3 - do you guys cold shock again or just dunk in room temp water?

4 - how much should i take for my fist time ever?


thanks to everyone that helped me along the way.  ive still got a bit to travel but im well on my way now, thanks :smile:

1. Luck

2. Dunk, Case your cakes,  spawn them to poo or straw

3. you cold shock your casing and you dunk your cakes in cold water (frige)  http://www.mycotopia.net/teks/dunktek.html
