One thing you might do is to use 3/4 cc's of sterilized water
and pump it with a syringe into the cakes....
or also you can use the dunk method.
I wouldn't throw the cakes in the garbage, this situation should
be easily resolved.  :smile:

Just hit them up with a simple dunk and roll before birth. They will be fine.

IME, most cakes that get burnt..cannot be saved...youll most likely have to toss em..and start over

I fucked up cakes with strong ass salt water (like 50% salt) the first time I grew because I was paranoid and thought the fluffy myc was cobweb and wanted to get rid of it for sure, the cakes turned blue as hell and dried out really bad, I dunked them in water/h2o2 mix to get the salt off and get water back in them and they fruited though it took abit longer.

are they grain? I thought your were talking about brf/verm. IME there's not to much to do about dry grain, if they're fully colonized you can use it to spawn, if it isn't fully colinized chances are it won't or take forever and I would toss it, if it is brf/verm then yeah dunking would help before the spawn run.

I'm sorry I gave bad info but I got the first flush from them and next I set them into the incubator for myce to colonize the new casing layer I added because the last one had been destroyed after I picked the flush and it has stayed there for 3-4 days at 30'celcius and no colonization ;that made me think they had dried out and also some jars remained lids loose had lost water compeletly in my opinion that the colonization stopped by them.Thanks for advices! And I think I can still dunk the casings or spray frequently as Anno does...what do you think?

for your cakes, try searching the forums for a Straw Tek. It's what i used the first time around and it's very good for keeping those cakes nice and moist.
