dunk and roll question
    #4245523 - 06/01/05 08:50 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

i'm on my first grow right now and am planning on dunking and rolling one of my cakes to compare the growth to non dunk n roll cakes. I had a few questions about it.
How long do you dunk the cakes for and will i need to dry them off at all or let water drain from them?
Is there any additonal contamination risks? Does the vermiculite need to be sterilized and do i use the vermiculite from the top of the cake or new verm fresh from the bag?
How covered should the cake be in vermiculite? Should it be completely covered or should some mycelium still show?
What temperature should the water be that i dunk them in?
any other dunk and roll info would be great. Thanks for any help i get!

dont bother sterilizing the verm
dunk for 12-24 hours but NO MORE THAN 24
cover the whole cake in verm for best results

I just did the 24 hour dunk and rolled in Verm for the first time last Friday, and 5 days they are starting to fruit already. The cakes are sitting on rubber plastic lid openers on 2" perlite with 1" water. I have an air filter line blowing in fresh air at the base of the cakes. The scary part is I dropped one of these cakes on the floor and the other in the garbage (bad night, huh?). I washed them off with sterile water, but honestly thought they would get their ass kicked by the green mold fairy. Ain't happening...good kharma thus far. Do the dunk, Dingle. The tek I read recommended draining them for 30 minutes....I drained them for like 5. So far so good...pics coming soon for you.

thanks for the help. do you think i should just do this to all of my cakes? I don't want to fuck up any cakes that would've grown shrooms.
it sounds simple enough

You will not fuck them up....you will give them the extra moisture and cold kick in the ass to fruit faster, bigger, and more fruits.  :smile:  But Hell...this hobby is all about experimenting, so do half dunked and half not......that would be an excellent experiment for you to measure the difference.  Just remember the four golden rules:

1.  Patience
2.  Sterility
3.  Reasearch
4.  Patience (yes, it a repeat)

Half fun man....keep me posted okay?
