Drop your temps by 10 degrees and raise the humidity as near 100% as possible.

You give them light right ? :smile:
Try to cold shock them before you birth, and don't birth early.

You can dunk at birth for about 12 hours or so. Introduce light at about 80% colonization next time. I would put a top layer of verm and wet it down in addition to the dunk. Keeping it moist but not saturated with good water. Like the pf strain I have great results when I let the cakes show primordia invitro before birthing. If no primordia show with the first week of 100% I would birth them anyways. If you havent already given them light I would right now like bc said...

After you lower the temp,I'd try fanning more often.
Maybe install a filtered vent.

Sounds like the temp is your problem. 88 degrees is even above reccomended colonisation temp, let alone fruiting temp. Good fruiting temp for cubes is 70-75 degrees. Do what the other guys said. Don't worry about putting verm on the cakes, this isn't the problem, it's temp.
