Hydration is key. Shrooms are thirsty buggers.

Next time you may want to try the "Reservior Tek" or "Straw Tek" where you make a water reservior in the middle of the cake with vermiculite, and add water thru a straw sticking up from the top. Works great!

see, thats how all my cakes looked on the first flush, its total bullshit for all the money and time you invest in mycology. once i saw how shitty my cakes were doin, even after i dunked them for 10+hrs, i cased them all and the results were great! fuck cakes, it was my first time, and i did a plain verm casing, i got around 1/2 zip dry from a 1 and 1/2 cakes. i dunno, some people get some kick ass flushes with cakes, but i sure as hell didnt, they looked like yours do. pick of all the mush save the one or two big guys, toss the pins and aborts and make yourself a casing, you'll be happy.

yeah your cake looks a little dry.

I inject sterile water into my cakes....with a syringe.
10cc of water at birth.
Then when I start to get pins......every other day....10cc of water.

Either dunk them or inject water.

I would if I was you....they look dry.

If you have any pins whats so ever......try injecting water instead of dunking.

IMO the straw tek causes less leakage than the injection method, once there are a bunch of holes in the cake the injected water squirts out.

not if you have the straw shoved too far down.

IMO if you shove the straw too far down....your not getting the top of the cake hydrated...just the bottom.

I'd rather inject the cakes.....sure they are going to shoot some water out the sides.
but at least you can hydrate the whole cake.

But I might be talking out my ass.....naw.....6.3 grams dry per cake is pretty damn good.
I think I'll stick to injecting.....enjoy your smaller yeilds.
