you're funny; look at your fc, no holes!

im gonna go ahead and call that aerial myc and tell you not to worry.

BUT

you should REALLLLLLLY increase your FAE. if you can imagine (just for the mental imagine), the myc is in a moist cake, and CONSTANTLY surrounded by very humid air; how is it to know that the humid air is not a colonizable substrate?

this is ONLY for understand purposes, please dont go around telling folks you can grow mushies in humid air, cuz you can't.

ok, so, firstly, i highly suggest you build a proper Shot Gun Fruiting Chamber. your mushrooms will thank you, and you will thank you, once you see how self sufficient it is. just use the search, ya know.

secondly, in the mean time, or id you dont heed my words, you need to fan more, A LOT more. you need to let those cakes know, "HEY, its time to pin! breath all this fresh air? we have growing to do!"


in the mean time, keep doin what your doin, just switch it up a little.

I had the same kind of thing happen to my last tub of BRF spawned to HPOO, I blamed it on the humidity as well..the balls after so long, hardened and yellowed..no pins..just those balls..sucked, but you live and learn.

yeah, that'll happen. imagine, if you will, growing myc on a substrate, then, exctracting the substrate completely, leaving behind just the myc. over time, it will dry out and die (for multiple reasons)

that is kind of what is happening here; the myc is reaching up and out toward all the humidity, but once you get the humidity correct (not so intense), and it no longer reach up and out, it dies.

i would, again, say a proper SGFC would be in order, AND go on to blame the uber high humidity on that air pump in the bowl of water. that tek is very outdated. it works, but needs dialed in. a SGFC comes pre-dialed (thanks physics)

So what should I do I don't want to lose all my hard work and I don't know how humid it is I don't see to much water on the grow chamber walls and should I take the air pump out of the chamber I already got rid of the bowl of water and also the grow chamber is in the closet because I have the cold air on in my house and it warmer in there should I take it out. And u said drill more wholes if I did that would it fix alot of the problem's Im not home to much that's the reason for the air pump I heavily  mist probably about 2/3 times a day.

Are your cakes sitting directly on top of the perilite?

im gonna go ahead and agree, maybe theres  some waterlogging going on, but that is not the cause of your aerial myc. every cake could use to be set up on wire, but i like my foil. wire is helpful, but not a fix all.

START HERE http://www.mushroomvideos.com/
watch these.
all of them.

its ok if it doesn't make sense right away BECAUSE k00laid has a great write up on the theory of the whole thing.
www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/14514604
this is it^

the shot gun fruiting chamber is gonna be your best friend, please believe me, so make one EXACTLY like the instructions say; 1/4 inch holes, 2 inches apart, on all 6 sides, 4-6 inches of perlite.

in the mean time though, your cakes will be fine. im not promising a killer flush, but with more fanning you'll be fine.
(with no holes in your fruiting chamber, how is new air gonna get in?)



watch the videos.

So this is what i did made a new chamber still need to put holes in the top took away the air filter added foil under the cakes and i also moved the grow chamber to my bathroom it was in the closet because of the warmth but now its in the bath room its more humid in there and plus every time i or my girlfriend takes a shower it will up the humidity heres some pic comment i need all the hlep i can get there are holes on the bottom of the chamber that's why i have it sitting on the bowls hope this helps because i dont want to fail this far in i waited about 3 weeks  from colonization till now.

very nice! wow dude, you'd be amazed how many people want to argue; "NO! that'll never work! im gonna do it my way!"

so now, even if you dont get fruits from those cakes, you will have the fc to fruit others. im VERY proud to see how well you can follow direction.

keep that up and you'll be very successful.

only one way to find out, fan and mist often and you will probably at least get something
