Ok I know you drill about three holes in you cakes after birth. Can u post a link with more specifics (have you made an official tek for this yet??) How often do you fill with water, how do you sterilize the drill bit, what size drill bit, exactly where to drill...etc. Thanks man

Hey Ron, You drill thru the sides, about an inch down from the top. Drill bit is sterilized in pure bleach and ammonia then superheated with an arc welder, drill bit is 2" wide, good luck! Uhm, I was just kidding around, don't believe any of what I wrote above, slow day in the porn world and all...
Sure quote will be along shortly :)

i just use a 3/8th inch bit, and drill about an inch into the top of the cake, 3 holes roughly equidistant.
i fill every other day if it's needed. i don't bother to sterilize the bit, just wipe it clean.

Fill three 3/8" 1" deep holes to `the top? They'll use that much water Quo?...

firstly, THANK YOU ALL. I've been lurking in the shadows for the past month, absorbing everything I can. what a uniquely coherent site.

just yesterday this first time myco-pop birthed ten of ten jars that had been shot up with hawaiians. excited and nervous is how I'm feeling. and oh, that delicious smell when I opened up the jars...

I'm using a rubbermaid/perlite setup. and quote's voodoo tek. drilled three 3/8 holes in each cake (the hawaiians like edges right?) and have the tops uncased and the bottoms sitting in verm. filled each hole with water up to the top. today the water has completely absorbed into the cake. I'm going to let them be (no more water) until they start to fruit.

I know, I know, as a first time grower I should have just done the straight PF double ended casing...but my curiousity was too damn strong. and sometimes, you just gotta follow your intuitive lead.

so I'm hoping that quote might give us an update. it's been almost a month since the last wave of voodoo tek updates hasn't it? is all still going/growing well? any new insights to share with this fresh father?

thanks and thanks.
did I say thanks?

it works great, you'll be pleased.
nothing new to report, though,
it's a rather simple tek, hard to improve much.

thanks for the reply, quote.

currently the holes are all filling with white fuzz.

I'm so freaking excited that I have a hard time concentrating on anything else.

Ok, I didn't use a bit...I used a sterile knife and cut what looks like a cone shape in the middle of a few cakes, and boy, did it pin around those areas! It really worked great, giving the shrooms more room to grow without crowding eachother out...I took pics, but can't upload them for some reason. I did not inject any water, yet still had pins galore around these cone shaped areas, so who knows? Thought we'd let quote and those others who are trying it know how our little experiment worked out...

what was the diameter of your cones? and how deep did you cut?
