If you dunk the cakes in sterilized H20 after birthing won't the water that touches the cake restict in from fruiting?

I thought I read somewhere in PF TEK that any water droplets or (water at all) touching any surface of the cake will cause that spot not to produce fruits.

By all means correct me if I am wrong. In fact I hope I am because I would love to use this dunking tek

Thanks
Sarah

fill jar to the top, if you have some left over then lightly press down a little to make more and fill back to top, then put a lid on it and slam in in your palm a couple of times. take lid off and lightly press down till it is even with the ring on jar it is about 1/2 inch wipe down the sides then fill with verm replace with a lid and your set.

for best results, don't pack it down. loose and airy is fastest.

I have been wondering about this for a little while. Instead of dunking your cake or using the drinking-straw-reyhdration tek couldn't you just sterilize a syringe tip and inject the cake with sterilized water?? Also I have seen posts of people who's cakes have become dry in the jar before full colonization, couildn't they just do the same thing and inject water into the dry spots??

Er, well, no, the water you inject will immediatly squirt right back out, or it just wont go. Mycelium is pretty solid, it has to sloooowly absorb whatever it is absorbing.
