I'm not necessarily complaining, but does anyone know why my cakes only form -2- mushies each, each and every time? I've got 2 cakes, and -always-, it's 2 mature mushies per flush... Are these pictures I see of 6-10 just the cream-of-the-crop type situations? BTW, I'm using B+ with PF Tek...

Thanks all!

it is probably due to lack of air. if you are going to grow cakes, i suggest building a PMP. they work wonders with cakes.

enough water? SInce mushies are 90% water, you may want to dunk your cakes to get water in them after colonization.

Dunking will not guarentee a better flush. Ive had cakes that i dunked half just after birth and not dunked the other half. Dunking before the first flush is very much overated. Both sets of cakes dunked and undunked flushed almost identical except the dunked cakes took longer to flush. You may just have a week strain or like above your not at optimal settings on humidity and air exchange. if all this is good then what you see is what you get from those cakes. Start some new ones.

BTW: Double end casing works wonders. Dunk after first flush if you want.

Thanks for the replies..

I've got a standard PF terrerium (10 gal aquarium, 45 degree drip shield) with 2 inches of perlite, 3/4 inches of water, and a sealed lid. I open & fan about once / twice a day, and the temp / humid. seem to hover around 70 deg & 95-98% (according to my cheap-ass radio shack instrument).. From what I read in the Perlite Tek, there should be little need for fanning & air circulation.

Thanks again!
