Fuzzy cakes?
    #1331219 - 02/24/03 10:45 AM (15 years, 25 days ago)

My friends cakes were birthed 4 days ago and they are getting pretty fuzzy with mycelium growth. The temp is set at 70f according to a heater but if the seting is wrong it may be hotter I'm not sure. But according to the faq it says this is mostly caused by high temperature and somewhat by too high humidity. If he lowers the temp, would it still be possible the humidity is too high? I thought humidity can't be too high while in the fruiting chamber. He is using 2in perlite, soaked and drained before placed in 10 gal chamber. Thanks for replies.

You're right, you can't have too much humidity with cakes. That fuzziness is normal and just means that your cakes are healthy. You should see pins soon.  :laugh:
