Can I birth yet?
    #3455476 - 12/06/04 05:47 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I checked my cakes today, and its been exactly 2 weeks since I put them in the dark. I have about 5 cakes that look ready, but im not sure if the mycellium has colonized throughout the cake. Should I wait a few more days just to be sure, or does it really matter?

I like to let my cakes colonize 5 days past the outside is 100% cause then you know for sure the middle is colonized.

LOl here the one and only expert talking who birthed his first cake today! :grin:

Actually after it is all white and mycelium has covered everything it possibly can, then I waited 2 days (maybe 1 is enough) and today GEBURTSTAG! :laugh:

Amazing how it is everywhere trust me the inside is mycelium packed too... :wink:

Good luck! :thumbup:

I let my cakes fully colonize, then begin giving them light. I then birth them at the first signs of pinning. Its always a good idea to wait a day or two once your cakes look fully colonized. You don't want to give contams a chance to ruin your work.

I don't dunk until afetr the first flush. That's because I let small pins form before birthing. Dunking won't hurt small pins if not done too long, but I've dunked some cakes with pins a little too long before and had the pins turn to jelly. Then I dunk in water/H2O2 for 24 hours, roll in verm, place them in the terrarium and mist them down with water/H2O2. This is done after every flush.

I don't, but it wouldn't do anything but help the flush, so I don't see why not. I'm just forgetful sometimes and don't like risking waterlogging my pins, but thats just me. I don't think its a bigger contam risk really, especially dunking with the peroxide water. Once fully colonized the myc is pretty good about protecting itself.

Yeah but birthing earlier (and dunking it) is more contamrisk, since that is the reason why you birth later? :confused:
