Quick dunk question
    #3123688 - 09/11/04 10:21 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Is it a must to dunk the cakes when birthing? If they seem hydrated is it wise/profitable to dunk anyway? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Usually the cakes will be dry at least on the outside, and there is nearly no way to tell what's on the inside.  Dunking just about always is good for yields/health even if it may seem they are already plenty hydrated.

In other words, if you dunk always then you won't wonder later if dunking would have helped your lame yield. :smile:  But not to say you will certainly have a lame yield without...

If this is your first grow don't dunk. If you want the exact same results that thousands of other people get with the PF tek, then follow it exactly.

You certainly don't need to dunk to get three good flushes and anything extra you do to the cakes increases your chance of contams and failure. Dunking is very helpfull if you want to get more than three flushes, but you should have some new cakes ready by that time so unless you have a lot of extra space it is more efficient to simply replace the cakes rather than try to fool with them.
