Really? Awesome, cuz ijust picked the last one's from the other tub, now I'm thinking it might have a bunch, I haven't re-hydrated it at all and it's produced more than I thought it would from only 2 1/2 cakes in each tub, maybe it will have as many pins underneath as the other tub, hopefully they're not all rotten.
Would you flip it and re-hydrate it at this point? There's a couple tiny pins on top that look like they aborts, I'm gonna pick em off, so would you re- hydrate AND flip it, or one or the other?
That's what we call a personal decision ... I've done all kinds of silly shit with subs, including breaking them up on purpose after or before dunking with great results, but ... that's a personal decision ( = do what you will, but that's on you) :)
Generally the bottom fruits more because the top isn't getting the proper fruiting conditions. Some cubes / strains / ? perform better with a casing layer. Some perform better with a thin layer, others with a thicker one ... really, if you're using multi-spore syinges, it's a total crapshoot and you sort of have to read the results and do what you think is best, which can lead to massive success and utter failure.
I mentally prepare myself by only planning for one flush from any substrate, and anything after that is freakin' gravy. Low expectations = massive success should your sub produce "normally."
Once I have enough dried shrooms to last a year or so ... which doesn't take much, I generally start giving shit away to random strangers (I'm too paranoid to give shit away to anyone I know ... twisted logic, sure, but I'm still standing) and experimenting with things. Sometimes the experiments perform wildly well, and other times much, much worse.
That's the fun of the hobby - for me - and if you're not growing shitake or some such stuff to pay the bills, and it makes you (me) happy, then ... why the hell not?
So there's your long-winded not-helpful, not-answer.
