Q about dunking & rolling.
    #3307320 - 11/02/04 12:59 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

OK so I have 1 fully colonized half pint jar...I want to dunk and roll but I wanna make sure im doing this right so correct me if im wrong...some tips would be nice too.

I understand I first remove the dry layer of verm, then fill the jar with cold water until its fully submerged...then I leave it in the fridge for ~14 hours....then I roll the wet cakes in dry fine verm, then mist a lil bit.

Just waiting for the green light guys! thanks!

yes. but I'd give it a really good misting at this point. You won't get a chance to go near saturation on all the verms once fruits form.

I also prefer to keep it in the fridge for a bit longer... 20-24 hours... but that's just a preference, I think. My jars have a huge growth momentum when they get cold shocked...

Also, make sure you pile on about 1/2" of verm on top and bottom. And soak that up well.(don't let water stand, just saturate the verm completely) Myc will grow into verm like roots and use that water for growth/fruiting.

Good luck

Sam

Yup, that's the basic procedure.

I use a 20:1 water:h2O2 solution, though. 2tbsp(1oz) 3% H2O2 in 2.5 cups(20oz) of water.

I also sterilize my verm in the microwave on high for 5 minutes and let it cool thoroughly before working with it.

I've found that the verm sticks OK whether it is wet or dry(It needs to be wet for microwave sterilization to work).

Thanks sam and discman.
I have another concern. Wont the layer of verm block the light that the cake needs to initiate pinning? how does that work out?

I should just tell you to try it and see. But I'll ruin the fun for ya. First, the verm won't cover all the myc unless you use glue. Second, the myc will grow over next few days right through the verm layer. You don't need a lot of exposed myc to get pins.

yes kramer does get his cake completely covered in verm but not to worry because the myc grows right through the verm in a day or so....make sure you get verm soaked good (as water is the mushrooms best friend)
:goodluck:

Thanks alot dudes, you guys are awesome.
I made sure I soaked the verm pretty good. cleaned out the terranium. verm is pretty fine..some fat chunks. Everyhing is looking pretty good except that I didnt strain out the perlite so the water is probably kinda foggy..I dont know if this is bad? humidity is 99% temp is 75. looking forward to some giant fruits for my first grow
thanks.
