What are some fruiting times y’all had with this method?  Also, am I supposed to dunk my cakes before I start fruiting with this tek? Thank you!

Don't roll the cake is going back in the jar.





Glad I read through the thread.  wasn't sure if I needed a 14-24 hour dunk either. 

I used my garden hose to carefully wash off whatever old verm came off easily (a good portion seems to be in the consolidation so I left it alone), put them back in the jar, put about half inch of verm on top - put plastic baggies on the jars like hats and put them in a sunny window.

This is great. Just knowing that this method is available makes it more enjoyable. Curious why they need to be removed from the jar and why the verm replaced. Does the birthing and replacing stimulate growth?

The initial verm layer acts as a filter during colonization, so it could be full of bacteria/contams, which is why it needs to be replaced with fresh verm

I came upon a post about Fruiting Conditions from 11 years ago that clears up a lot. I'm assuming it wouldn't hurt to cook or PC the new verm if contams are a concern.

After the first flush.

Do I remove the cake from the jar and dunk it like normal?

Then.

Put the cake back in the jar,
And replace the verm layer?

Thanks for the write up! This is my first grow and I had one jar that I had to wait to birth . I went with this tek tonight ! Can't wait to see the results ! Only question I have is do I need to mist the entire cake the first time or just the new layer I added to the top ?

When adding the new verm layer, do you fill it to the rim again? The cakes kind of shrunk during consolidation and I feel like there's a solid inch of verm on top again. I moistened it, but I'm wondering if it's even necessary to have. Have any of you tried it without the new verm layer?

You don't need to case it but a little verm sprinkle helps.
