Dunk and shock or let them keep growing
    #3499056 - 12/14/04 07:57 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

i'm on my second flush, using cambodia straint and verm/brf cakes. i harvested most of the shrooms, now i've got some more pinning going, should i let those pin and grow, or take them off and dunk and shock the cakes and go for another flush?

You don't want to cold shock them thats done for the initial pinset only, now it will just retard growth. Dunking is always beneficial but doesn't need much time under water on later flushes, 6-8hrs. is more than sufficient. If you have more pins I'd let them mature and go for as many flushes as possible. GL

Yep only after the first flush..dunk after every flush. Cold shocking after every flush wont really hurt..but it will probably slow things down a day or two.
