I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

Everyone keeps forgetting about dunking and rolling. Maybe people should say that in their original post to avoid confusion.
Just a thought.

The Cakes looks awesome.
But the casing... Well I think the humidity might be high by looking at the condensation. Because casings don't need as high of a humidty as cakes.
Good question...
What is that black stuff.

Cakes look great! Casing looks like it could use some patching IMHO :wink:

the cakes were dunked and rolled. When I put the casing (50/50+, peat moss, verm, oyster shells, hydrated lime) on after sterilizing it, I missed a piece of peat moss. I guess I broke it up and that's why it looks like that in that one spot. I'll do some patching if you guys think I need to. What humidity should I have the casing at? I've got another terrarium I could put it in.
