Re: upside down cake - what should i do?

You should be able to let it grow as long as their is visible mycelium growth. It is probably too late to flip the cake since you may have pinheads forming. Im not an expert thought so if anyone knows diffrently please correct me.

I flip my cakes "upside down" after each flush. So you should not have any problems. I also set my cakes directly on the perlight so as to abosrb moisture. Which my cakes always seem to enjoy, but your mileage may vary.

In any event, you should be fine. I've seen cakes pin on the bottom, travel the length of the cake "undergroud" and pop their heads up next to the cake, then proceed to mature normally.
