Dry Cakes (Maybe)
    #3032102 - 08/21/04 12:24 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I birthed my fully colonized cakes and dunked 'em for twelve hours four or five days ago. The temp has been maintained between 74 and 78, and the humidity has been at a solid 100 percent. I have had the cakes on top of a piece of tin foil to keep them from soaking up water from the perlite and have kept a light on them. (I've had the light on about twelve hours a day, from what I can gather the amount of light doesn't seem real set in stone, so I just randomly chose twleve hours a day.)

Looking at the cakes however, they appear to be really dry. I have avoided touching them so as not to damage them. But this morning I inspected them by lightly running my finger over them, and the outsides seem really dry. I am wondering if this is par for the course, and if the insides are still doing mushroom stuff to eventually pin. Or should I be spraying the cakes every now and again? Any thoughts?

Right on - that is sort of along the lines of what I was thinking, so I am going to experiment with it. I have half of the cakes on the foil, and the other half on the perlite. We shall see how it goes. Ciao and take it easy.
