Dunking with 90% colonization
    #2286973 - 01/30/04 01:56 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Hey all :wink:

I got one of my PF Cakes that it's 90 / 95 % colonized,
it's 4 days that growth of mycelium is almost stopped.
Do you think that I cannot dunk it if the mycelium didn't
cover all the substrate? Will it be working anyway?
Or you'd say better to chuck the uncolonized part?

Thank youuuu :smile:

Does it hurt to dunk right after complete colonization of a cake? Is it cool to dunk between each flush?

Afoaf would like to know if you can birth/dunk before
seeing pinheads? PF says to wait until you see primordia,
what says you?

Wait until it is 100% colonized. How has the growth been up until it seemed to stop?

For the hijackers of this thread :laugh: >

Yes, of course you can dunk a 100% colonized cake as well as in between flushes. In fact, it is recommended.

Birthing a completely colonized cake before primordia formation is completely OK. I honestly don't know why PF suggests to wait. *shrug*

just because a cake is almost completly colonized on the outside doesnt mean that it is entirly colonized on the inside.why risk it,youve waited this long,is it really worth taking any chances now.Wait a few days,it will be worth the wait.

after it's 100% colonized wait another week, then your babies will be ready. patience is the key.
