a couple of more q's for a newbie
    #4110533 - 04/29/05 12:20 PM (13 years, 26 days ago)

i have my cakes in a tank with perlite now, and i notice that they felt dry in contrast to when i took them out of there jars. its been about 4-5 days in the fruiting chamber now. i was wondering if the cakes should be wet like they were when i took them out of the jars. could them be drying up be a result by stiting them to close to the perlite?

Are they directly on the pearlite??

sounds like a humidity problem.

mist your cakes and the walls of your fruiting chamber.

yeah sorry for not replyin sooner, i was the comp. lab in the moring, and just got outa my classes. the cakes are not cracking and they arent directly on the perlite. they were for a day, but i put wire mesh between the cakes and the perlite. is just a flat pice of wire mesh it does not stand like in the MMGG. there is lots of "fogging" on the walls of the 10 gal tank as well as water droplets. when i open for fanning is smells like moist fresh mushrooms. i just wasent shure if they were drying or not casue this is my first gorow and ima ll out of spores and would like to get some from three cakes i have.
