help please.......
    #11170282 - 10/02/09 04:41 PM (8 years, 2 months ago)

it's been 4 weeks in the fc and there still arent any pins. the humidity is always above 90, i fan and mist 2-5 times a day, they get light just from where they sit in the room... i really don't know what to do anymore. if anybody could help me it would be nice....i also re-dunked the cakes 2 weeks ago cuz they were turning blue but it didn't seem to do anything. 2 of the cakes have only been dunked once but don't show anything at all, they're all just blue...please help. it's a shotgun type fc with perilite...

sounds like you have done everything right...are you sure the spores were viable? but if you have myc then you should be good. without knowing more info i'd say just wait. kind of a crappy answer but thats about all i could tell you. did you follow the PF TEK to a "T"??/

well it sounds like all is good except lighting
get a 6500k "daylight" bulg (a small CFL will workas long as its daylight) and run it 12 on and 12 off above the FC

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

Yeah, I think lighting may be your answer as well. Do you have strong mycelial growth? If so you should be able to fruit them, I wish you well and hope you have many sucessful flushes:)

Proper lighting is an important pinning trigger. :thumbup:

i agree with the posts above, but i have to date NEVER HAD ARTIFICIAL LIGHTING, and i pin like crazy. I'm sure i would have just the same or better luck with a CFL but i do it without and am happy with the results. I'm not disagreeing with anybody but just representing the "natural light crowd"

Even if there is no light pinning should happen, just not as densely.

is there such a thing as too much light? i live in a studio apartment and it kinda just sits in the corner getting light from the window or the lamp in the room...other than that i guess i'll just play the waiting game...when you said start fruiting them, what do you mean by that? thanks for all the answers

Fruiting is the stage at which mushrooms start to appear. Usually this is induced in the high humidity environment of the fruiting chamber but it can happen outside of the FC. It sounds like they are getting enough light though, inspect your mycelium and see if the cakes are solid, perhaps they didn't incubate long enough. Good luck.:tongue2:

A pic of the cakes might help.

How much sunlight are they getting? Is it direct or indirect? There is such a thing as too much direct sunlight.

A guess at your problem:
One cause of cakes turning blue is dehydration. I know you said that you're misting multiple times a day, but if they're getting more than a few minutes of direct sunlight a day, it could be drying them out, causing them to turn blue, and keeping them from pinning.

What are your temps like? Is there anything else that might be causing excessive evaporation from the cakes?

Cheers.  :beer:

the temps around 73 most of the time. that's about as warm as i can get it without causing the humidity to shoot down. as far as direct sunlite, i don't think it's getting too much. i only have one window in this place and it sit's like 10 feet away and in the corner kinda...i wish i could load pics but my camera got stolen a few weeks ago out of my car...thanks again guys
