A note to fellow newbies.
    #3188772 - 09/27/04 11:39 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

This is for the benefit to anyone who is following the PF Tek. Dunk and roll your cakes. After you birth the cakes, dunk them underwater (in a 10:1 water/h202 mix) in a tupperware container or something similar for 24 hours, in the fridge. Then after 24 hours has expires, take them and roll them in sterile, dry vermiculite. As Geaorge said, spray them down until the vermiculite is moist. Then place them in the fruiting chamber.

This extra step only takes 3 minutes work and 24 hours longer, but compare the results. These are my last two cakes to begin fruiting:


The cake on the left has been dunked and rolled, while the one on the right was birthed directly to the fruiting chamber.

Edit: Spray the cakes. Also, thanks to MycoCat for the more comprehensive methond.

For those of you who don't know The Dunk and Roll Method, these were the directions as given to me (with minor grammatical adjustments) when I was a newbie (though some may say I still am).

The Dunk and Roll Method:

1. Birth your fully colonized cake into a zip-lock bag then add water until cake is fully submerged.

2. Place in fridge for 24 hours.

3. Remove cake and roll in clean vermiculite.*

4. Fill a shallow lid with dry vermiculite and spray with water till nice and damp.

5. Place cake on vermiculite.

6. Add dry vermiculite to the top of the cake and mist the entire cake, vermiculite and all.

7. Place in terrarium and wait eight days on average for pins.

* To sterilize vermiculite put in microwave safe container (spread out evenly) for ten minutes, then stir and use. Also make sure to wet the vermiculite to target moisture before microwaving.

No question is so difficult to answer as that to which the answer is obvious.

Thanks.
