A few n00b questions... about to birth..
    #3239353 - 10/10/04 04:34 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I appologize.. I'm just so nervous about fscking up, since this is my first time.

Ok, so I'm about to birth a few of my cakes.. Cambodia & Ecuador, to be exact.

Should I just open them up, dump the dry vermiculite layer out, fill with distilled water/H2O2, put the lid back on and put the jars in the fridge for ~12 hours?

I plan on placing the cakes in miniature aluminum pie dishes with a layer of damp vermiculite on the bottom. Should I also pile some ontop of the cake?

That makes it easy to add moisture to the cakes from above, right?

Thanks for your patience.. heh :smile:

So does that mean I should put some verm on the top of the cakes too? :wink:

Oh, another question.. what is the recommended strength for H2O2?

I've heard a few figures thrown around.. is 1:20 Ok? So in 20oz of water, I'd add 1oz of H2O2?

Right. 1oz of 3% H2O2 solution to every 10-20oz of water.

you dont really NEED to put verm on top. just roll them and mist them every now and then and keep humidity high.

Only 3 cakes were completely done. About 4 more need another couple of days or so. They're soaking in water/H2O2 as we speak.

I found one cake that has been contaminated with a dull grey fuzz. :frown: Oh well, I guess 1 out of 12 isn't too bad.

What can I do with it? I can put it outside and see if anything comes from it, right? Is there any way I should prepare the ground?

Although, it is supposed to be rather sunny here for the next few days... not particularly hot though.
