Forgot to dunk my PF cakes before casing them
    #3656031 - 01/20/05 11:38 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

DOH!

I realized it about 2 hours after the fact.

I sprayed them w/ water and some h202. Maybe like.. 4-7 pumps.
Is it gonna take my myc a long ass time to grow? Is there anything I can do? Cased in 50/50+

Thanks a lot. I hope I'm not too screwed.

Dunking is not required if your casing.

keep the casing layer very moist, almost wet, you should be fine

the top layer? But wont that make them take longer? How about if I just put the casing in my terrarium where its nice and humid? Or should I bring the top casing layer to "near-saturation?"

see the casing in my sig....

the substrate made them crap but that pinset was acheived by maintaining near saturation, patience is the key, do you want a nice yeild or a fast one????

Why would keeping the casing layer moist slow them down? The casing layer NEEDS to be moist...how else you think its gonna grow?
