getting a second fluch out of cakes
    #399120 - 09/20/01 02:41 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Just getting my first shrooms from some PF cakes (using a legal strain of non-psilocybe mushrooms of course).
How do I best provoke the second flush? I am using the inner resevoir tek as well.
Do I need to clean all the little shroomsters off first, or are the tiny ones that appear during the first flush the beginnings of the second?

a couple things i've heard..

dunk your cakes. put them back in their jars with water for like a day.
this works cause the reason cakes stop flushing seems, to me, to be the fact they really dry out afterwards.
though, some people theorize dunking with the inner reservoir may drown the cakes. personally i have seen cakes soaked for 48 hours or more ( no res. tek) and i have yet to see an actual drowned cake.

also putting cakes in the fridge for a day, or cold-shocking, is said to force flushing. this seems related to the way mycelium grows all summer on cow dung, then fruits explosively at the beginning of autumn, right when the temp. cools and mist covers the fields.
thats all i can think of now.
