arrrggghhh!! having trouble with my flat cake.
    #574396 - 03/09/02 06:48 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

hey everybody alohas from hawaii.....
im having some trouble with my flat cake. its been 7 days since incubating my flat cake. i followed eatyoualive's tek to the "t" but its not fusing together.
-is the flat cake supposed to be "completely white" when incubation period is done(6days)?
-how tight do you pack down the substrate and wet verm in the pyrex dish? packed down really hard?
-the substrate does not look like its fusing together but it is getting more and more white but in blotches. it doesnt look solid white too much but still looks pretty crumbled up but white.
-can i keep it incubating for a while longer? or should i just try and birth it anyways?
-if not then what do i do to help it out? its been 7 days so far.
thanks a lot guys peace. and smoke ganjah.

dude 6 days aint long enough for it to colonize........

just leave it a while longer check in on it in 2 more days........

if possible maybe give it a light spraying with some distilled water........ if able to sterile like

good job so far; and yes you can (and will need to) leave that cake incubating for more than 5 days. thats good progress for 11 days at room temperature. but its too moist in there if you could be very sterile about it i would replace the plastic wrap over the top to get rid of all the water thats on that- and maybe even wipe off the water from the inside of the glass.
if it were me i would just wait until it colonizes all the way and throw a casing on it right as it; incubate for another 2 days or so then birth it into your terrarium with the cake still inside the glass dish.
but either way removeing some of that excess moisture should help; but i think it will colonize completely either way.


--------------------
Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!

you also need to cover the sides with duct tape or something, light should only come from the top, the mushies will grow out from the sides and you dont want that. next time use a non translucent container.

hey guys thanks for the input. its really appreciated me and my friendly ogres are happy we are progressing in this.
-so i should incubate my pyrex dishes for another 2 to 3 days then i can birth?
-when birthing should i just take it out of the glass pyrex so the mushies will have more sides to grow off of?

dude, my dog used the exact same trays as that. you need to get some duct tape like buddy said in a later post and wrap the sides. for the bottom, i just take that pretty white cap, and put it underneath.. set the clear thing on it...
that way it works pretty good.

i had one tray that the guys started growing underneath.. i just lifted it right up in one big lump and pulled em out..
but next time i covered the sides so that wouldnt happen. the pins just like to form everywhere

if you leave the bottom open, and just sit hte top under it.. its kindda cool cause you can see whats going on .. rather than use like a soilid container..
they work fineanyhow

I think these guys are giving you instructions for a casing and it seems you are working on the "Flat cake" tek by eatyou.......although I'm not too familiar with the tek I don't think you need to cover the sides of the dish because when you birth it you are taking it completely out of the dish anyway. Keep it incubating until it is solid white and then birth it, sometimes it takes a little longer then the teks say (all depends on moisture levels and temperature)......You can go ahead and poke a FEW holes in the plastic to speed things up a bit, just put some tin foil loosely over the top to keep foreign spores and what not from getting in..........

Vote Jonnyshaggs in the next election for GOD...Its the responsible choice
