Hi, I've been in the process of fruiting my pf tek cakes, and am 6/7 days in (I did one a day earlier). Still no signs of pins, but they seem healthy.
I was just wondering, since I am fruiting them in bags, I have noticed that the perlite is getting swamped with water (As in a pool of water has become noticeable underneath it and if I squeeze it, it's pretty clear it is going up into the perlite quite a bit but isn't getting soaked up.)
I haven't misted it at all for 24 hours now to see if it'll soak up into the perlite and it has remained humid, but there is still a lot of water in there, and I'm getting a little concerned that much of it sitting inside might attract contamination. Also due to what I presume is the water making it uneven, one of the cakes is starting to tilt.
Would it hurt to take out the cakes, pour the perlite into a strainer to get the excess out and put it back in, or is it best just to do minimal misting (like once a day when I fan if that) until enough of it evaporates away?
