I thought I might spice up this thread a bit by sharing some pics from a recent dunk of 12 half pint cakes (cambos).
All 12 cakes were innoculated with ~1cc per jar from an old syringe that was sitting in the refrigerator for nearly a year.
Cakes were incubated for 1 month and appear to be fully colonized.

Verm barrier is rubbed off with fingers, jar birthed, then rinsed clean in kitchen sink.

Cakes are handled with care, and show no obvious bruising before entering container.

Straight tap water is used when dunking cakes - I figure if its good enough for me to drink then its good enough for my cakes (and cheaper). Also, I choose not to completely submerge my cakes when dunking - they still absorb plenty of water this way and avoid the extra shock from being weighed down.

Finally the container is covered with tinfoil and put in the fridge for ~12 hours.

That's it! Hope you enjoyed my "simple dunk". :rasta:

Thanks Coyote - they're kicking off some serious knots right now in the fruiting chamber. I keep asking myself - when are these gonna pin? Then I remember what Buckaroo told me my last grow - Patience. Ah, yes.
I'll make sure to post some pics when they come.
