Cakes- Which way should they be birthed???
    #683243 - 06/17/02 07:42 AM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Alright, quick, simple question. I've read through endless amounts of teks and feedback from fellow cultivators. I'm still new at this (one cake birthed so far), so, I ask this: When I birth the cakes, which way should they be facing? Should they be sitting the original way (while they were colonizing in-vitro) or should I reverse that when I birth them? I only ask because 1) I made a booboo and I think I birthed mine upside-down, and 2) It doesn't state really in the teks (although I suppose I could have overlooked it all 2 billion times I read through. THANKS!

Thanks bassplayer, I did indeed birth upside down. My conditions havn't been up to par and it's been almost 4 weeks with no fruits, yet healthy looking cakes. Could it be because of temperature or is it because they are upside down? Should I flip them?

>Could it be because of temperature or is it because they are upside down?
What is your temperature? What is your humidity?
They are not upside down.

>Should I flip them?
No.

75 is very good, but 55 is very low.
It can take longer at such low temperatures.
And the humidity?

i agree with anno, the jars should be fruited in the same position that they were colonized.

This is what I do - I birth them the same exact position they were when in the jars colonizing.. so when I take the cake I flip it in other words so its the position it was in the jar. And I birth it just like that resting on foil.

I wait till primordia form and when the pins are visable I flip the cake so the pins that are formed on/if the bottom are now on top.
