Cakes not Fruiting**Pics**
    #11233729 - 10/12/09 04:57 PM (8 years, 13 days ago)

HEy all.  Well here's the deal I have 2 fc, both pf tek with brf cakes.  My smaller fc held six cakes and I'm on my third flush.  Went away for the weekend and my friend ended up misting them for me.  THe veil broke on all of them, so there were spores everywhere, I'm hoping these mushies are good.  Anyway my other fc I started 2 weeks ago. 
This one is quite bigger and holds 8 cakes.  I have had no action.  I thought the mycelium was still consolidating it's hold on the cakes, but now I'm pretty sure it's way past 100%.
Any idea why my smaller fc has fruited but not the bigger?  Humidity?  I am misty twice daily and fanning 3 times daily.  I'm sorry I don't know the humidity, but I'm just guessing since the bigger one has more area that is the case.  THe cakes look the same.  temps I'm running at 75.
Thanks

PICS

Fan more and mist at least 2 more times a day. Put holes in your FC shotgun style if you haven't already. Temps are good. Remember fresh air is a big pinning trigger. Also, keep humidity at 98% and you will see pins.

Do you have the bottom filled with Perlite?
if no, get some if your not using a humidifier. You really don't need to mist with it, its a volcanic rock with micro-porous wholes in it that can run the humidity up to 100%, cool stuff :laugh:

the problem with perlite is the fact that it's very easy to miss-use.  Perlite is more effects when it's just damp vs. soaking wet.  You have to find the perfect medium of how wet to keep the perlite, not too wet but not too dry.

Even I know this and I still have a hard time maintaining it.

I don't think so at all. I thought it was super easy to use form the first time. Just rinse it really well, let all excess drain in a colander, then dump into the tub. If there is any standing water in the bottom of the tub, it's too wet. The humidty stays constant for 3-4 weeks...not very hard at all.

Your perlite looks very chunky. Didn't they have finer perlite at the store?

All you do is soak it, drain all the water off, and make sure it's in a container with clear sides. Then you mist and fan, and when your humidity thing (cheap walmart) drops at all from 95%+ you pour a bit of water in, watching the sides to make sure there is none pooling at the bottom./

I currently put all my perlite in a sperate container in the fruiting chamber, to keep it clean, (along with a bubbler) after the first time I used it I got verm all over it. I'm planning on reusing my perlite quite a while. I might even bake or pressure cook it after this grow.
