Is there enough space?
    #842410 - 08/25/02 04:50 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

Hi. My cake is fruiting in a 4 1/2 inch wide container but the cake itself is 3 inches. This leaves less then 1 inch on each side for shrooms to grow. Is this enough space or do I need to put it into something bigger. It's equadorian. Also there is fuzz growing on one side...it is pure white...but the shrooms aren't coming out of the fuzz but from the very bottom of the cak. Shouldn't they be growing all over?

Should be wide enough. If the mushrooms grow into the side of the container, they will follow the path of least resistance. Don't worry about the fuzz. The reason the mushrooms are growing from the bottom of the cake is probably related to moisture.

Yeah the wet perlite is on the bottom. But isn't this wasting the rest of the cake? How can I make them grow all over it?

If you're having issues with dry cakes, you can dunk them to rehydrate.

And for this do i just take the cake and dip it into water? How clean does the water have to be? For how long? And will this effect the already growing shrooms(only 1cm long) in a negative way?

Ok...well none of the links in the FAQ worked except the Humidification topic...but to my surprise the dunking wasn't in there. So can someone please tell me? Or are you gonna make me search google?

I hope you realized that was a link to mycotopia's main page. The dunk tek is here. There is a link in the FAQ, too...

Lol...it's ok I found it fine just from the main page. And actually by now I'm done dunking (put it in the water yesterday 9:40 and took it out today 10:20) so it was dunked for a little over an hour. Now just wait and see what my cakes really capable of.
