Usually, cakes run out of water before nutrients. I've rehydrated them in every way conceivable. By far the best and easiest is to simply set them directly on moist perlite after the first flush. They will soak up the perfect amount of water, and pin again. As soon as you see pins, take them off of the perlite, or you will get fat asses.

I've injected cakes with everything, and plain water seems to be all that is necessary. Unless you build a non-nutritious resevoir in the middle of the cake, you can't inject more than a cc or 2. I've made cakes with middles of moistened water absorbing crystals (found in nursery stores, Agrosoak is a brand at Lowe's). The non-nutritios center doesn't get filled tightly with mycelium, and the BRF doesn't glue it together. You can inject a good deal of water, but the perlite is much easier and more effective. Resevoirs can also be made in the middle of the cake from pure moist verm, again perlite method is much better. The MMGG covers these resevoirs in the optimizations section.

I've gotten up to 5 flushes from the perlite method with Ecuador cakes.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

Is injecting water into the cakes always necessary, if so is it necessary for cake fruiting and casing?
