Cake still usable?
    #4574071 - 08/24/05 09:47 AM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Uhm... ok so now the myc pulled away from the glass about 1/4 of an inch, and pulled the vermiculite with it... is it like part of the cake forming by contracting like that? its not drying up is it?

My plan is to take it out scrape whatever vermiculite is on outside of the cake (cake i am assuming is in the center cuz that is where i shot it), take it out and let it fruit...

is this sensible?

thnx

I think you are asking if the cake should shrink a bit during colonization? Usually it does, and pulls away from the glass a bit. This makes it a bit easier to come out.

Ya cakes shrink after awhile, it might be a sign you should be misting more. Remember to use the dunk and roll tek between flushes to rehydrate the cakes.

well its definitely colonized as much as it is going to - cuz it has been in the jar for a while (while!), and I am thinking of taking it out, and as long as it doesn't smell I was going to get rid of the excess vermiculite that has no mycelial growth, then try to grow with the small cake that is left (after ridding it off excess vermic.).

Oh, not to mention I injected the spores incorrectly (5cc's into the center of the jar).... instead of the correct method of against the glass... so.. ya... lookin' kinda dry too... so I think i need to take it out
