Good evening. My pf cakes are just about fully colonized. I was wondering if before mixing with the vermiculite, if i should dunk, and or cold shock.
Or if i should just cold shock it after the myc starts poking through the casing layer

Hey, mine are too. Actually 2 jars are done.

1. WAit a couple of days after fully colonized so the inside is completely colonized, too.

2. Don't dunk it, you dont' need it, and just case it. Don't cold shock it because you need the mycelium to grow some more.

3. keep patching the aggresive growth so you can have a even pin set.

4. After you get a fairly even growth through the casing, cold shock it and lots of air to induce pinning.
