BRF cakes on perlite, good or bad.
    #798455 - 08/05/02 07:28 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I have 4 BRF cakes that are fully colonized and ready to birth but I wasn't sure if I needed to put them on some kind of stand(the lids of the jars) or something, or if it was quite alright to just let them sit directly on the perlite. I have around 1 inch of perlite and its 3/4 full of water, will the cakes be alright sitting on the perlite or do I need to put them on some kind of stand.

Thanks

If you're SURE your jars are FULLY colonized... Open them, fill them with spring water, re-cover 'em and put them in the fridge for 12 hours. Then birth them to your terrarium on top of squares of aluminium foil on top of the perlite. NOT directly on the perlite.

1. Get turkey baster
2. Suck out excess H20
3. Birth jars
4. Set cakes on perlite
5. Watch shrooms grow
6. Harvest
7. Chew, chug OJ, swallow
8. Smile...

Happy Harvest!

You're telling him to put his cakes ON THE PERLITE?????

BAD INFORMATION!!

Good idea to suck the excess water out of the perlite though.

yes, when I put my chocolate cakes on perlite it made to damn waterlogged!

I recommend not putting on perlite. Aluminum Foil, plastic or glass all work good.

Just don't stick on perlite. I also recommend dunking before the first flush and dunk after each flush!

i've read of a few people that leave the cakes directly on the perlite until they start to pin, then they remove them (by placing on a rack or tin foil or lids) and have had great success with this method. the reason they do this is to help rehydrate the cakes from the perlite.

however like everyone mentioned here it may not be the best idea so if you dont, be sure to dunk, dunk, dunk!!! sorry i dont have any links to other posts demonstrating this, but you could try a search. good luck!
