Is it ok to dunk ...
    #2661750 - 05/11/04 03:47 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

1 week after birthing if the cakes look dry ? my buddy wants to know but I dont know the answer, his cakes were birthed a week ago and dont have any mushies growing yet, just a few pins here and there.
And if its ok, for how long is it ok to dunk without killing them ?

yea i think domey has the idea. Either keep the verm super moist or put the cake directly on perlite for a day or two. Plus if theres pins already and you dunk they might rot(i think?).

Ive dunked with pins alot and they actually thrive.last time I did this I had a cake that was full of tiny little pins,I dunked it and withen 3 days of dunking those pins had grown to be some of the biggest I got from that strain.Dunking with pins is fine as long as you dont overdo it.I wouldnt dunk a cake with pins for more than 12 hours.I wouldnt make a habbit of it,but if you have to they will be fine.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

yes,I mean ideally it should be for about 12 hours,but 9 should be ok,its alot better than nothing.You certainly didnt overdo it.Now watch how those pins take off.

Put the cakes right on the perlite...? Really? I thought that suppose to be really bad for them. Or was that the mushrooms themselves... :mushroom2:

I've heard putting cakes on perlite between flushes refreshed them nicely. thats why it was suggested

Some of you said that if you dunk the cakes 1 week after birthing they will rot and bruise to hell, well thats wrong, the cakes are fine and look very moist and healthy, not even one blue spot.
