pf tek question
    #4141191 - 05/06/05 09:27 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

would you cold shock / dunk / roll the cakes even before the first flush, that is at birthing, or you only dunk and roll and cold shock between flushes, that is after the first?

what about cold shocking without dunking before birthing, that is putting the jars in the refrigerator for 12 hours before putting it in the terrarium?

i think that cakes before the first flush have no need to be rehydrated, because they only lack water after having grown fungi, but last time i did the pf tek the dunked cakes had a better performance, so this is just a question about what you do.

and, what about rolling in peat instead of rolling in verm?

at birth...dunk cakes in water while in the frig for 12 hours...then roll...then put cakes into the fruiting chamber.

then after each flush...repeat.

cakes that are dunked...or straw tek...or Voodoo tek...do better than cakes that don't get extra water...at birth.

peat is acidic...you would have to buffer it.

do you also cold shock casing?
i mean cold shock the colonized grains before casing?
and then, cold shock the whole thing between flushes?

I do...some people don't.

no

after casing.

when the mycelium is just reaching through the casing layer...I cold shock for 8 to 12 hours...then put the casing in the fruiting chamber.

I don't cold shock inbetween flushes with a casing.
