question on dunk and roll tek
    #6531067 - 02/04/07 08:35 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

what does the vermiculite that you roll onto the cake, do? and do i have to do it? does it make fruiting take longer to begin? what if i just dunk it for 12-24 hours and put it in the FC without rolling in vermiculite?

keeps a little moisture on the surface of the cake so that it can pin from the sides easier

You don't have to add the verm but it helps.

It serves as a casing layer and really helps. Roll the soaking wet cake in dry vermiculite. After you get it into the terrarium, mist heavily a few times over the next several hours to hydrate the verm, which then helps supply moisture to the cake.
