Cakes.. so wet?
    #736136 - 07/10/02 10:37 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Hello all!

this is somewhat urgent as a question; my cakes are one day prior to FULL colonization inside the glasses and thank God no spots not anything, they look soooo healthy and they are fast too i thought that i should leave them at least 4 days or a week more. But tonight that i inspected them, i saw that the cakes inside are VERY wet, to the point that one of them [the fastest and strongest of them] has drops of water on the bottom of the glass...

is this normal or should i do something before its too late?
i wish i had one of those webcams...

specs:

cakes: rye flour + vermiculite
open mouth small jars - thick layer of dry vermiculite on top - closed with double alu foil as 'lid'
strains: GT + EQ
temp: 25-26 C inside a closed box, all sit quietly there

Thank u 4 spending time on reading my post, if u happen to know anything, reply!

Peace,

Kykeon

If you put a light layer of vermiculite on the bottom of your jars, the water will be absorbed and the cake will come out healthier, colonize faster, and give you overall better results!

are you sure about that verm in bottom deal.

i think the mycelium would just colonize it too.

Thats why i love shroomery... i may post my thoughts about the personal occupation called mushroom cultivation, this particular forum and the entheogenics mushrooms, but this isnt the right time nor the right forum

to Frog31337: thanx... btw, nope, the mycelium is healthy white, even on the bottom where it has just learned swimming lol actually, i think that my mycelium will be affected somehow, eg being yellowish, a week later...

to Mr Mushrooms: thanx...

to Jdttwelve: your idea seems cool, but i think that walt is right. As i see my cakes now, the mycelium seems sooo strong that it had started 'eating' the upper layer of vermiculite!!!

Thanx once more... feel such a relief...
