Dunking Question -- Thank You members for your advice --
    #3887231 - 03/08/05 02:38 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I am on my sencond batch of PF jars. My first batch is in the terrium and hasn't started to fruit yet but have more colonized jarsready. Do I expose them to light until they pin and then dunk or do you just dunk and put in terrium when fully colonized With double end verm. tek. Please help. Thank you and Peace.

after your jars are done colonizing you should dunk them. dunking makes larger flushes, and rolling in vermiculite afterwards makes even bigger flushes.

this is how i do it. once colonization is done i scrape the dry verm layer off the top of the cakes, and then put bottled spring water into the jars with the cakes in them. then i put the tops back on and put all the jars into a plastic bag and put em in the refridgerator (this is called cold shocking, it initiates pinning, but isnt neccessary). you can also just dunk the jars without cold shocking, but i recommend it. you should dunk for 12-24 hours, i usually go for 24.

once dunking and/or cold shocking is done i then pour out dry vermiculite onto a dinner plate and pour the water out of the jars. i CAREFULLY handle the cakes then, and roll them in the dry verm and immediately place them into my fruiting chamber. then take a spray bottle (i usually use bottled water) and spray the cakes with the dry verm on them until the dry vermiculite is wet.

so... dunk first, then roll in verm, and then place in fruiting chamber where pins will develop. after your first flush just clean the cakes of all pins and dunk/cold shock again.
