fruiting temps should be in the mid to low 70's F.

Might be bruising.

You should see even small signs of mycelium growth (at the least) on the cake after dunking and/or putting into the Terrarium.

you could still roll in verm now,just mist the cakes then roll in dry verm,then mist the whole thing.

so basically they are bruising since they aren't moist enough? would it hurt for me to dunk again with 1/100 bleach before I roll them in verm? by the way they are not in shapes of a jar since I used the casing 101 method. Its in a tin rectangular tray.

well this is my 2nd batch if it works out so its been cased for a while now, I'm experiencing some cob web now I think. Very little but does this mean not enough fresh air or humidity? Oh and the cakes are no longer blue they are normal now just seeing a little cob web, they look like trool hair coming up (is this cob web)? :confused: :stoned:

sounds like bruising. be careful how much you're handling those cakes.

it isn't necessary to recase dunked cakes. but you'll get better results if you do.  my foafs method has been, after 1st flush dump cake in a big bowl cover with tinfoil place wieght of some sort on top to keep cake submerged and left in fridge for around 24 hours. then dump the bowl into a colander let drain a few min then gently place back in the fruiting chamber. A few days to a week later you'll start to see pins



This is 3 pf cakes crumbled/mixed with high mtn compost 2nd flush about a week after dunk
