dunking, adding honey or dextrose?
    #2628265 - 05/02/04 04:43 PM (14 years, 23 days ago)

when dunking, would it help to dunk into a dextrose/honey solution? would this amount to larger flushes?

With the honey or karo on the outside of the cake it will result in a contam farm.

thanks. is there any good way to add nutrients to a cake after the first or second flush? would this result in weak shrooms? does it still significantly increase the contam risk even if you can get the nutrients inside the cake? is it worth it?

Dunking is for the sole purpose of hydrating the cake after it has been in incubation,or between flushes. If you prepared the substrate per the pf tek there is plenty of nutrients inside the cake for sustaining healthy fruiting. If you are really interested in cultivating your mushies with a nutrient boost you should look into using horse or cow poo and straw to spawn your cakes into. It really isnt that hard to do and there are many good teks to read up on. Using these methods should greatly increase your yields and fruit size when used in conjunction with a casing layer.

Good Luck

Also, your really only adding sugars, carbohydrates and such. In case you didn't know, they require much more than that for proper growth.

There are 3 things that tell a cake to fruit.

1. We all know this one. Light.

2. C02 being flushed out more, or the introduction of fresh air.

3. Lack of colonizable substrate or not being able to find nutrients.

Yes, I know sometimes it only takes light to start pinning or people wouldn't post about cakes pinning it the jars. Most of the time it takes more then just light. (Most of the time)

By adding anything to the outside of the cake or inside it for that matter is gonna contam it, or if it somehow doesn't it will just slow things down.

In otherwords if somebody found a way to feed cakes or myc they would have found a way to keep cakes alive like plants. Just keep feeding them and they keep growing, no need to start new cakes or casings.  Nobody has pulled it off yet.      :goodluck:
