watering my myc
    #2772614 - 06/07/04 07:54 PM (14 years, 16 days ago)

ok, i FINALLY have 3 pins, and i want to add a little water, because i think it may or may not need it. anyway, it is a case consisting of one pf cake, nothing more. the myc has colonized 97% of the case, is it bad for water to be directly on the myc? how can i do this?

if the cake is showing pins this is good, means conditions are right. you should probably leave it alone now. misting can be used but usually before pins are formed. mist/dunk after this flush if you think the cake needs it. squeezing the cake lightly (and as cleanly as possible) can give you an idea of moisture content.

actually, conflicting information is throwing me off... i thought i've heard that water directly on myc is bad, but then what in the hell is dunking?!

Standing droplets of water are bad (breeding grounds for bacteria). Watering can also harm the mycelium (forceful watering, like a spray), so a gentle mist is usually recommended. Add only enough, do not over-saturate it.

And I would have to disagree with littlenemo about squeezing your cakes lightly to check water content. Bad idea - don't touch them.

it's not a cake anymore, it's a cake broken up into a case
