Question about my cakes
    #25033394 - 03/02/18 01:19 PM (3 years, 2 months ago)

Long time lurker, I finally got around to making an account. I have four cakes of Lizard King cubensis, and they just started fruiting. One of them has a big cluster of shrooms growing from the bottom, and the cake is tilting really bad. I am worried that possibly with increased growth the cake will fall on its side. Is there anything I can do to ensure it stays upright, or will it be alright and eventually balance out as they mature. Thanks in advance!

Wait and see. I wouldn't worry about it. Just try to keep the cake level. If it falls then lean it up against another cake.

you want airflow around your cakes. you want the entire cake to pin, not just the bottom.

you may also be slightly dry if pins only come out from the bottom(where the micro climate is better against the foil)
