A newbie with a question
    #536217 - 01/30/02 08:07 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I was just wondering...when I make the cake and I build in the reservoir...can I drop water right down onto it? Like..when I make the cake the reservoir will be vermiculite almost all the way down to the bottom and after the entire cake is colonized I take it out and put it in the terrarium....And how often should I water it? I plan on putting it in a simple coke bottle arrangement.

Don't use a resevoir, either employ the dunk tek after the first flush, or use it in conjunction with the double ended casing tek.

MrNobody,

You might wait til the cake is birthed.
Then sterilize a drill bit.....then drill a hole down the center of the cake.
I am going to try this.....i have seen good results.

I have used a syringe on cakes.....10cc of water injected into the cakes.
I have have been getting good results.

:smile:

why not use the reservoir tek? it can be as fruitful as dunking. I have a few jars colonizing where i made a reservoir. this is my first time with a reservoir but i have sen great results. Ii know that you inject 10ccc after birth and about 1-2 cc per day. though i have had great results puting a cake on a lid full of verm right after birth also.

roadkill, you dont inject straight in the cake without a reservoir do you? can you do that? the water wouldnt have a place to rest without a reservoir, right?

Yeah pleezr......i do.

I inject 10cc of water into my cakes after i birth them.
Then every few days i inject more water.
I have been getting good results......doing this.
I inject into the sides in a few places.

you also have one more option, the "taurus" tek, where there is a tube placed into the center of your cake before sterilization, which later makes for a great way to rehydrate your cake.
Search on it, and you will find.
