cakes, to put on lids or to not?
    #3460955 - 12/07/04 07:45 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I have not found anything saying DO IT THIS WAY OR I WILL CUT OFF YOUR BALLS....so maybe you guys can help me? When you birth a cake do you set it on the lid of the jar/a peice of tin foil? Or do you stick it right onto the verm....i have had mine sitting on the verm with no problems as of yet, but they have not pinned yet ether....I figured the cake would stay hydrated better without sitting on the lid, but now I am starting to question myself. Any input would be great, thx

You said you have your cakes sitting on the verm? You're not using vermiculite to regulate the humidity in your fruiting chamber are you? Give me a little more info about your setup and I'm sure I can help. In the meantime, check out this link. It is what I would advise and I'm sure you will find it quite helpful. http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23593/pag/9

sorry, not verm perlite, my bad. I notice in there it talks about sitting it right on the perlite. But it makes it sound like that is only for the second flush? Am I taking this the wrong way?

I personally never place my cakes directly onto the perlite layer. Some people suggest doing this in between flushes to re-hydrate the cakes but since I dunk between flushes this isn't necessary.
