Do you harvest all of them off the cake at once, or do you keep taking the cake out periododically clipping of mushies as they grow?

all at once, then you can either fruit normally in a terrarium, or dunk and put it back in the jar... i don't recommend dunking... everyone I know who's tried it says its bunk, though i never tried it myself...

most people i know who grow do one flush invitro then birth normally.

Dude you should try it before you knock it!

With dunking I get massive flushes. With so many shrooms the frikin cakes fall over. They sometimes look like a giant pincushin!

The trick is not to dunk them to long. 24 hours is going make them mushy not good. When I first birth I dunk for 3-4 hours. After every flush 12 hours. I don't worry about pins when I dunk ether, they like the bath.

I used to get about 5-8 dry grams out of a cake even after all the flushes

Now after perfecting dunking I get 12-20 dry grams!! That's like twice as much or more.

I have developed a good test to tell me how long to dunk a cake. Although it is not science and will take a little practice it works good for me.

What you do is pick up the cake between your 2 fingers and give it a good squeeze. Don't worry about brusing it. If the cake feels very hard then dunk it for 12 hours. If the cakes fells very soft don't dunk it. If it feels somewhere in between then dunk it for 4-8 hours.

The whole point of dunking is to keep the cake a maxium moisture levels. And I think the fungus gets tricked into thinking it rained. Ever see shrooms growing in the cow field when it hasn't rained in a week? NO, But when it rains a day or two later ,presto SHROOMS!

It is the same with dunking

I might as well add one more good point.

After you dunk them the first time you open your bag of verm. or potting soil or what ever you got and roll the cakes in it. If you can see any myc thru the verm them, then pack it on by hand.You want to end up with a fully covered cake.

What you have is a great big fluffy cake making huge flushes so big you have to prop up the damn thing to keep it from falling over.

Sometimes I will do this after every dunking depends on how many pins it has when I put in the water. If you dunk and roll after every flush to a maxium of three. The cake will reach the size of a extra large softball but, that 4th and 5th flush will be huge!

Good luck and happy farmin!!!

are you talking about dunking and putting back into the jars, or are you just talking about simple birthing in a chamber?

Well if It's the size of softballs I doubt he goes through the trouble of ramming it back into jars.

No into a humidity chamber.

You know I have only done Invitro a couple of times and I did pick after first flush and dunk then put them back into jars for a  great second flush. But I think it would work as well to dunk between every flush mabey only a hour or so.

I think you probly should watch out on how long you dunk them though  because cakes invitro dont need as much moisture as cakes growing out in a humidity tent.

I wish I had done more Invitro to better answer your question.

Just experiment on any extra cakes you may have

YEAH LIKE ANY CAKES ARE EXTRA LOL LOL LOL :smirk:
