> Do i place the cakes directly on perlite/water mixture?

basically, you want about an inch and a half of perlite in the bottom of your terrarium, with about half an inch of water (so the level of the water comes up to just under half the level of the perlite. a lot of people recommend sitting the cakes on jar lids, but i have found that i get much bigger flushes if i sit the cakes directly on the perlite.

the shrooms will have a higher water content, but i find that even after completely drying them out, i still get a large dry weight.

this depends a lot on the conditions and the strain of cubensis you are growing. it's usually about 2 to 3 weeks. (my golden teacher jars have taken a lot longer though, four weeks and counting!)
