Changing Gravity
    #924402 - 10/02/02 09:09 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

For the first two PF cakes that I birthed, I didn't remove the verm. However, the mushies all seemed to want to grow out of the verm, and since the cake was sitting on the verm, when I turned it over - BAM ! - there was like 40 pins. So I left it turned over, and its fruiting (the mushies are pretty small when dried tho). Anyway, I was going to leave the second cake alone as a control to see what would happen if I did nothing. Well, the mushies started coming out of the bottom, and before I knew it, it was starting to lift the cake up, revealing tons of mushies on the bottom that were getting squished. So this one I turned onto the most mushy-free side last night, and already they all seem to be doing ok (especially the guys on the bottom). My question is this - does anyone have any information to support the idea that changing the cake's perception of gravity mid-fruit is detrimental to the overall fruiting cycle or the health of the cakes?

verm holds water.
when the verm is on the bottom, pins mostly form there because water is abundant.
when you have a top layer of verm, the water can seep throughout the cake, giving your cake more even hydration..thus improving pins all over. try giving both top and bottom a hefty sprinkling of moist verm.

the only effect gravity has is puling the water towards the bottom of the cake.

Real botanists laugh at HPS systems, we do however use high pressure sodium in the parking lot. - artthug
