Is it good to dunk the cakes in between flushes (is it worth it)? What about an exhausted cake?

Thanks.

Yes i would reccomend it. This cake i have right now is on its second flush, I dunked after the first one and there are lots of healthy pins coming up. Dunking is the shizznit definitely. Peace.

Alright, should I dunk before the first flush then too? And if so, when should I? Right after I take the cake out of the jar (When I see the primdoria)?

Please take into consideration that I will probably be using perlite for humidity as well.

Dunking between flushes? Yeah, for sure! And enjoy the bounty of your hard work and research!

Take those exhausted cakes and throw them under a tree in your backyard. One day you might have some mushies at your house.

Yes I know between flushes...but what about before the first flush starts to grow? Should I dunk before then (Right after the cake is fully colonized and I take it out of the jar)?

dunking rehydrates the cakes, coldshocking stops the growth of mycelium and induces pinning, rollin them in vermiculite gives the cakes an added source to draw moisture from
