gonna lose my pf cakes??? 1st time grower
    #1048091 - 11/13/02 12:54 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

ive made it this far but i'm starting to lose hope. :frown: all ten of my jars have made it to the fruiting phase but no shrooms.

cakes are finally pinning but not growing.  my first cake birthed about five days ago had five pins and all aborted.  now it has way too many pins to count but none of them are longer than a half inch.  all my other cakes birthed two days ago all had pins within 24 hours but they seem to be aborting too.

here's my setup:
-10 jars via pftek / 1cc per jar (colonized 1 month )
- large sterlite terrarium with perlite and fish tank bubbler
- have been misting daily
- 4-5 fannings a day
- temp is lower 70's
- spores were pc

I can't find out what my problem is.  but until then i can only assume its humidity cuz i've been fanning a lot and the temps right.  but with perlite a bubbler and misting i wouldn't think i have humidity problems.  i'm completely stumped.  are these pins just stalled or what???

pick the aborts,and dunk the cakes for 12 hours in the frig.,,they may not be holding enough water to produce a good flush,,and i'd lose the bubbler and stop misting,unless you cant maintain humidity, cause the perlite should be enough,gauge it and find out,,i dont know if the humidity would make them abort but to much isnt good,,
just my opp..

I have never found a problem with high humidity and cakes. Cakes are tough. I like to break them up and then fruit them. They are easy to fuck with.
This is PR cakes broken up and left to grow together after the first flush was taken. Also it usually takes up to 2 weeks for cakes to fruit full swing.
