Fruiting?
    #1113895 - 12/05/02 03:10 PM (14 years, 1 day ago)

I have a cake that was birthed 9 days ago after it was dunked for 12 hours. I fan 2x a day and since I don't have a humidity gauge, I rely on the fact that water condenses on the inside of the lid of my fruiting chamber to decide when its humid enough. I figure when the water does form, the humidity is ok. I use perlite for humidity and give it about 2 hours of light a day. I always add water to the perlite to keep it damp but not flooded. The chamber is a large 14x8in. non-see through tupperware and its airtight except for around the lid. My problem is that the cake has developed mycelial "spikes" but nothing that looks like pins yet. I birthed the cake 3 days after full colonization. Should they take this long?

Refer to my grow log for any other details: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Growlog&Number=1016283&page=0&view=collapsed&sb=5&o=&fpart=all

Rawtoxic is got this one right. You'll have pins soon, just stop worrying about it.

I'll stop worrying when I find out if this is taking too long or not. I just need to know if its weird for a cake to take this long.

Yes, I've had a cake in the terrariu, even after I dunked it, that didn't show signs of pins for two weeks.  So now stop worrying.  :tongue:

sounds like they're imminent!
My first casing took five days to colonise, then 10 days in the terrarium to pin. 25 pins within 24 hours.
