Dunk for 12 hours (not longer than 24) and roll again. Most of the verm will come off when you dunk. It's there to hold moisture for the cake to draw from. Post some pics of your harvest. :mellow:

hay dub, the whole process took no longer than 30 days. once i got the cakes into the fc they sat for a few days. than the pins started. i went to a friends house over-nite. when i got home the next morning, BAM. i couldn't believe it. they grew several inches in 24 hours.

Yeah, when everything lines up and the conditions are right, the little fellas can grow like mad. Glad to see that you had success. I'm about a week behind you on the popcorn grow. Post some pics of that when you get results.
