dunk tek
    #556864 - 02/20/02 12:19 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

I put my first pf cakes into my terranium 2 days ago after cold shocking them but thet don't seem to be doing anything
the humidity is at 95% but the cakes seem to be shrunk like they are dehydrated
would doing a dunk tek on them at this time be advisable?
there are no pins showing

don't dunk them.

Try injecting them with 10cc of water each.

2 days.....lol
Some people have to wait a week for fruits.

Give it some time. :wink:

are you sure the RH is at 95%? if it is, your cakes should be nice a bright white and probably fuzzy, definitely not shrunken

and yeah it should take a lot longer than 2 days especially if you did not wait for invitro pinning before you birthed them

The cakes naturally shrink away from the jars as the mycelia
consumes the cake.
My friend likes dunking and has seen pins two days
after dunking. I also read the it can take 1-3 weeks after birthing. There are a lot of variables that can expidite or prolong the process. My friend's cakes have always been so dense that they couldn't force water into them with a syringe.
But I think they may have been on drugs.:cool:
:peace:

ok so to inject water should i
1. microwave it for 5 min in a jar
2. cover with saran wrap and let cool
3. rub alchohol on saran wrap and inject needle to bring in water

does that sound like it would be taking enough precautions against contamination?

sorry about the stupid questions but better safe than sorry

You could do that.

Or you could take a shot glass put it in a coffee cup full of water.
Nuke that for 5 minutes.
Drain the water out.
Fill the shot glass back up with cool sterile water or spring water.
Then just take a sterile syringe and fill that up.
Then inject the water into the cake in a few different places.

I think hippy made a Voodoo tek like this.
Sorry brain dead.....going to bed....lolz

Your way would work too.

I would wait ten days at least and then dunk. I had very little action for almost three weeks and my cakes were looking like you describe yours. I thought they were goners but man did they take off after dunking. Be patient but don't wait too long to dunk.
