cold shocking necesary?
    #4272717 - 06/08/05 06:48 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

i've already got 2 jars in the fruiting chamber that were cold shocked in cold water for 24 hours. I have 2 others that were slow colonizing and i'm wondering if cold shocking is necessary or if it will help my cakes grow my shrooms? any help would be great. Would setting them in the fridge for an hour cold shock?

don't think it is so much the cold shock as it is the dunking part. hydrate them cakes then roll them for a much better flush.
peace

One vote for not necessary, and probably not worth the bother.

i've heard that alot around here, that dunk and rolling will increase my flush size, i'll go ahead and do that if i can get an answer to this one question that has been on my mind
Is there any way to fuck up a cake that would've grown a fine flush by dunking and rolling?, it is a simple process and seems there is no way to really fuck it up, but will contams may be a problem? I really appreciate the help guys, this site fuckin rocks!!! :twirlyface:

Yes and No. Adds moisture. Mushrooms are 92% water, don't want to lack any. Verm. adds no nutes...:shrug: lol

Contams shouldnt be a problem...As long as your tap water isn't to harsh w/ minerals.
