To dunk or not to dunk?
    #530551 - 01/24/02 11:56 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I have a question for all of you very knowledgable people. I have some cakes that I birthed about a week ago. They seemed kind of dry and shrunken when they were birthed but I negelected to dunk them then. I planned on dunking them between flushes and I probably should have dunked them when they were birthed, but I figured that being in a humid terrarium with damp perlite would help them enough. Now some of the cakes are showing dry patches. The primordia is still developing and some of the cakes are showing the first signs of pinning, but no dark pinheads yet; just small shoots coming off of the primordia. My question after all of this is: can I still dunk these cakes to get some moisture into them, or should I wait until after the first flush at this point? My worry is that there will not be enough moisture to produce a decent flush. Any advice will be much appreciated.

Don't dunk em now....don't dunk on the first flush.
Get a syringe and inject like 10cc of water into the cake.
Or sit the cake on wet perlite to soak up some water.

sounds like your problem stems from your substrate formula...can you tell us how much water you put in?
