Purpose of rolling after dunking?

Simple as that. What does the vermiculite roll do to aid the fruiting process? does the vermiculite need to be moist or dry? :mushroom2:

roll in dry verm, verm holds moisture for the cake to use during fruiting.

Roll it in dry verm so it sticks, then mist the hell out of it.

The verm acts as a casing layer so to speak, providing extra moisture content for the cake, for bigger flushes.

don't forget to put about 1/2" of very very very moist verm on top.

I'm going to try this out for I've got some cakes that have done ZIPPO pinning. They were dunked and cold shocked for about 20 hours in the frig with distilled water and then placed in a perlite terrerium. NOTE: Other cakes that I didn't dunk/cold shock have pinned but were of a different strain and I kept them in the jars until invitro growth occurred.

The cakes that are doing nothing are "creeper" strain and I'm having GREAT success with casings with the same strain -- picked 130 grams off a casing earlier. This is sad, for the casing cakes were made at the same time as the cakes in the terrerium that were dunked.

I'm going to focus on casings, but I'm going to give the dunk,shock, and roll a try too.

Do you mean to just pile it on top of the cake when it's in it's final fruiting place?

yup yup.  and spray it down to saturation.  It's really hard to over do it on the first spray down. :wink:
