adding water to the cakes
    #4162729 - 05/11/05 06:28 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

would it work if i injected sterile water into my fruiting cakes, they seem kinda dry and i dont want to dunk them. i fiqured that injection would work; of course not as well as dunking but it should be plenty for my needs. any ideas?

your best choice is to just get your flush and dunk them. ive never injected water into my cakes or heard anybody doing it so i dont know how it would work

The only time injecting water into a cake will work is if the cake has an inner resevoir made from vermiculite. You know what I used to do before I started dunking? I cut a drinking straw in half and inserted it into the cake about an inch. Then fill the straw with H20 with a syringe as the cake takes the needed H20. Use a clear straw so you can see when to refill it with H20. Works great!

If you cut the straw in half at an angle, it will go into the cake easier.

might want to consider using a bit of h202 in your water to avoid contamination. also people have been injecting coffe with h20, make sure its cold. and had good growth. the caffiene does the same thing to mycellium as to use. since it doesn't have any organs to fail it is less stressful on the being itself from what i understand. so try like 10 ml H202(the 3% kind) and 90 ML of cold coffee. Use hot nutz straw tech. it would be fun to try no?
