Cakes not fruting. Confused!
    #11258619 - 10/16/09 10:58 AM (8 years, 2 months ago)

Hey all. I'm new to this forum. I got a question, that I am sure has been covered, and I have searched all subjects on here, but nothing covers my question. OK....my jars were completely colonized, I stuck em in the fridge to cold shock, and then I got arrested and spent a month in jail....don't ask =) Anyways, I got out, and started them without dunking and rolling, but they were plenty hydrated. I FAE'd and Mist atleast 6 times a day, maybe a lil less depending on how busy I am. The cakes have been in for 2 weeks now, and there are no pins what so ever. All conditions are optimal 72 degrees F, and using SGT my humidity is at 96%-98% constantly, but still no pins. So, I took them out 5 days ago and dunk and rolled them, just to make sure they were well hydrated, and create a more suitable environment for them, but still nothing at all. Did the 1 month cold shock, stunt their growth so much that they will never grow, or is it just going to be a really long ass time til they pin? Any help is appreciated.

I have never cold shocked.. I can imagine that long had an effect on them. I also imagine that the myc would survive as some keep petris in the fridge and do fine. I think that the dunk and roll and new environment is going to help, 5 days is too little to tell from that point. I would also consider starting more. Fan more to cause the trigger...?

First of all, don't cold shock.

That said, it's good they were in the refrigerator for 'storage' during that month.  You didn't mention your lighting or air exchange procedure.  Those are the two most important factors at this time.

Thanks for the quick comments. I use indirect sunlight, and I am in a pretty much always sunny state. I fan for 30 secs, and I am using the shotgun terrarium to get rid of stale air. I also have a fan on constantly in the room they are in. They are elevated off the ground on a shelf right under the window I am using, so they get about 10-11hrs of light a day, and there are no contams.

well.. if that all is correct, it sounds like a more direct lighting source is all you can manipulate further.. and wait some more.

*Edit: How often do you fan?
