Not sure what's wrong here
    #1138129 - 12/13/02 10:54 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

Well my cakes have been in the terrarium for about two weeks and I don't have pins yet. The cakes have growth all over them. Huge bumps, they look like the elephant man. The bumps are starting to turn brownish. Is this a sign of pinning. The cakes are resting on wire abount an inch above wet perlite. I fan about 3-4 times a day. I have been giving them adequate light. I wish I had a digital camera. Also, one of the cakes has been secreting a small amount of brown goo on the top. Now I do recall that these cakes were very wet when birthed. Could my lack of pins be related to to much moisture in the jar while colonizing? Also I have noticed what seems to be small brown balls of moisture forming on some parts of the cakes. Maybe they're getting too much humidity. I know its hard to get a good idea without a picture but anything you could tell me would be appreciated. And yes, I am fairly new at this. thanks.

good luck, man. I'm only on my third grow, so what do I know, but for what it's worth...

I'd suggest using a paper towel to soak up the droplets, whether they're water or 'mycelium piss'.
And 2 weeks isn't all that long. Probably they'll start to pin this week?

What temperature are they at?

I went ahead and soaked that brown stuff up with a paper towel. And guess what, I tasted it and it tasted just like a shroom! So of course I chewed the piece of paper towel like it was a piece of gum. Who knows, it's worth a try. Anyway, I'll let ya'll know if anything happens, here's hoping.

My casing looks like the elephant man too. Are your lumps like little lumps of shroom matter? Poke them, and see if they turn blue. If they are, then I have the same problem/situation. Anyways, keep me updated on your shroom tumors, and I'll do the same for you. Peace, KEG

Gives whole new meaning to the phrase "Drinking Piss".

Anyway, I feel for you dude. I'm in the middle of the fruiting stage of my first grow and am waiting very impatiently for something to happen.

Wow, I do something a little off and look at all the replies. Hey, trial and error, that's how we learn. And no effects, but now I know, and knowing is half the battle. . . G.I. Joe!!!!!!
