quick question...
    #2446052 - 03/18/04 04:44 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I've got a couple of cakes in shouldered jars.  (They are whole brown rice cakes and pretty dense - like me :wink: ).  I'm gonna have to birth them in pieces.

I'm intending to case them with straight verm (Gonna test out automan's 'solo cup terranium') and want to dunk with water and h2o2 before birthing (especially as I have to mutilate them beore birth... figured that must be an extra contam risk).

Can anyone tell me if I should dunk 1st and cut the cake after or cut the cake 1st... (also couldn't find any info anywhere regarding this)

I?ve done this before and it works good. I just made big cakes out of the pieces.
I did the dunk first.

OK... So you suggest to dunk 1st (in the jar with some h2o2 added), then cut the cake and recombine in a tray and case...??

Should I cold-shock while dunking (before cutting the cake), or should I put the whole - reconstituted - cake in the fridge (in a baggie) for the cold-shock?

Also... I'm assuming that it's a good idea to treat the casing (100% verm in this case) with a little h2o2 in the water. Am I on the right track?

Sorry for all the questions folks (I've spent more time reading the FAQ's than I have speaking to my wife the last month, but I still am a bit hazy on a lot of the details... This is my 1st grow)

Dunk whenever you'd like. As far as cold-shocking, don't do that until after you have cased and the substrate has colinized the casing layer. The purpose of a cold-shock is to bring the mycelium into the fruiting stage, so you wouldn't want to do that until it is ready to fruit.
