No pins on PF cakes
    #1239707 - 01/22/03 01:07 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

so it has been 5 days since the birth of 9 pf cakes. They are sitting PF Tek style on top of pearlite, in sets of three inside tupperwear containers. After three days one set of three was dunked for 24 hours in a fridge, and then placed back into their container. Those ones turned blue and are slowly turning back to white over the course of the past 6 days. The other 2 sets havn't chagned much either. In fact, the only change i can see is perhaps a few tufts of mycelium spreading away from the surface of the cakes, like little Q-tip ends. They arn't any different color though, so I hesitate to call them pins. Perhaps if i knew better what a 'knot' looked like I could tell you if tha'ts what they are.

I worry that these cakes will be contaminated before they show any signs of fruit.

The room is currently about 60 degrees.
I am fanning each group about 1x per day.
There is plenty of moisture inside each of the containers.

What should I do?

cubies? i would jack up the temp to like 70. at what temp were the incubated? you want their fruiting temp to be approximately 10 degrees below incubation temp.

how much light are they receiving, 12h per day is optimal.. really you haven;t been wating long at all yet. In fact, only the real lucky ones have pins in 5 days or less. it can take up to 2 weeks though usually it only takes maybe one.


those Q-tip things are hyphal knots and yes they'll probly be turned into pins by the time you read this.

Woah there buddy, gotta be patient.  Five days is nothing.  It took me 2 weeks until I saw pins on my EQ cakes.  Calm down  :wink:

It's very unlikely that your cakes will contaminate during the fruiting stage of the growing cycle.  From what you've said already, the mycelium network sounds well established.

Raise your temperature to at least 71.

I'd fan at least 3 times a day.

Be patient.  Read, smoke pot, create, destroy, etc...
