    #4115341 - 04/30/05 06:21 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

HI
these are my cakes been under 24! hourse fluresnt light
from now and on they will be under 12 hours 400 HPS but well covered.

for some reason all of them are coming out from the bottom side.




this erea is getting a littel dark.. more like deep blue,
do u think its bad?







look at this the shrooms lifting up the cakes from the glasses.. i use it to keet them off the ground cause the bottom is not wide enough.




this is the other cake that dosent go so well.
i think i took it out too early, what do you think?





thats it for now.
when do you think i should hervest?

Hey Baker,

First off that bluing means that the cake is drying out. You can easily fix this by dunking after your flush.

I have heard a few different strategies with harvesting. Basically, one says to harvest right before the veils on the caps break, the other says let them grow to maturity and then harvest for optimal weight. Id do the first.

Your other problem is probably that you are using clear glass cups. Light can get through these glasses and mess things up. I used duct tape to keep the light out of where I didn't want it.

Hope this helps,
Argo

Your cakes are pinning from the bottom because that is where most of the moisture is. Try double end casing or the dunk and roll technique.

I'm sure someone can provide you with a link but I couldn't find a thread explaining it.

Dunking is placing your cakes under water to fully hydrate them before you birth them into your fruiting chamber. After dunking you can roll your cakes in vermiculite.
