So one of my cakes is bluing and I'm sure it's because it's dehydrated. 

 

It has groups of pins, I could take a pic if you really want. 

I rolled it in verm but it colonized part of it during its time last week in the FC.

I've added another layer of verm on top that I can drop water droplets onto to 'feed' the cakes.

 

My others ones aren't drying out like this and continuing to grow on time. 

 

What is the best way to one to rehydrate the cake? Am I pretty much out of luck until I dunk for next flush?

 

 

Thanks so much.

Pictures are just about the best way for us to help you troubleshoot this.

It looks like it is actually doing extremely well. The bruising may have occurred during the roll process. It does not look dehydrated or shriveled from what I can tell. Its going to get a considerate amount of moisture from being next to that perlite, as long as you're misting the sides of the tub. Also it appears to be double-end cased. Meaning there is verm on the bottom, and top but not on the sides. Which is a great method as well. If I were you I would bottom water it. Just add a little bit of water at a time, on the bottom layer of vermiculite. Just be careful as it seems like you have a lot of pins lining the bottom of the cake. You do not want the water to come in contact with them. You should only have to do this once because in 48-72 hours, maybe sooner, those pins will should be fully developed mushrooms.

Thanks Cybele.

 

I hope they grow up fine! They are just moving a bit slower than the rest.

If you inoculated them with a multi-spore syringe that's more than expected.

A way i used to hydrate my cakes was to stab a straw into the top about an inch or so into the center.
And then fill the straw with water
