hey pf cake growers, Which way do you set your cakes/Which way is up?
    #4363171 - 07/02/05 03:31 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I was just wondering what way you set your pf cakes in the fruiting chamber? When they are in the jar colonizing there is the little layer of vermiculite on the top, once the cake is birthed there is some of the vermiculite that the mycelium grew through that you can't scrape off. Do you put the side with the verm.  facing up or do you have it resting on the jar lid? This is my first grow and for the first flush I had the verm. side on the lid. My second flush just started on one of my cakes and I seen 3 shrooms poping out from underneith the cake, I turned the cake over and noticed there was quite a few shrooms growing out of the vermiculite side that was pressed up against the lid. So is the vermiculite side supposed to be facing up? Or  does it not matter? What do you do? :mushroom2:

Doesn't matter. even if you want to flip it like the second flush cake, it's all good. Just be sure that you don't miss shrooms on the underside, they could rot and cause contams.

Enjoy  :mushroom2:

UPSIDE DOWN SHROOM



This is the second flush from this cake. I originaly had the verm side on the jar lid and seen that 3 shrooms popped out from underneith the cake. After I saw that I flipped all my cakes and they all have shrooms popping out from the verm side. I think from now on I'll put em verm side up. Do you think that affected the growth at all, having them grow upside down?
