Pins and the Wait
    #1551541 - 05/15/03 05:01 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, I had twelve cakes innoculated and all 12 had full colonization with no contam.  (1/2 pint BRF PF Tek) The strand is EQ.  The cakes were cold shocked for 20-24 hours and then birthed into my terrarium where the temp has been 75-85 degrees and the humidity = 100% always.  I have one air stone running under water/H2O2 in the bottom of the terrarium to help displace CO2 and a vent hole drilled into the bottom of the terrarium to allow for CO2 escape.  I still fan the terrarium 4x daily to get good air exchange.  There is a piece of plexiglass on top of the terrarium and they get around 8-10 hours daily of indirect sunlight / normal room lighting.  Now for my problem:  No pins.  The mushrooms exhibit a fuzzy white growth right now that earlier posts have said is a sign of their still being in the "vegetative" mode.  How do I stop this and get them to pin?  Any help is appreciated.  :smile:

Don't let the temp get up to 85 degrees. Recently, a cold shock didn't work and my betta had to put the terrarium in front of his air conditioning unit. Since then the cakes have continued back onto the right path. The hum. is fine, therefore it is the temp. Also, sometimes if the terrarium is to wet, meaning that the perlite is soggy the fuzzy happens.

I think that I read sometime ago that a person was sick of waiting and ate the actual cake.

I didn't think that worked until after they had produced mushrooms. I also spelled inoculation wrong in my original post. Sorry Anno...

mycelium has goodies in it but I don't think it would be worth the wait to get one trip out of what could have been many.

Well, this is my first attempt at this on my own. I am not sure if I'm ready for casing yet. Got to make sure I can grow shrooms before I worry about whether or not I can grow lots of shrooms.

That's good for you. I'm an idiot so I started with the supposedly easy, idiot proof stuff.

Yeah, started with cakes and get a good supply of spore prints and then you can try different situation without spending very much money

If you are going to do cakes, then do pint jars instead of half pint jars. You will find that the pint are about the same cost to do as the half pints and you get better spore prints.

Come on fugu, you and I both know that kits are a huge waste of money. They are so over priced. If you put a little effort into keeping a clean area and not putting all your eggs in one basket, then you can make pounds upon pounds of shrooms for less than 50 dollars.

No. My pints colonized in two weeks and I did some half pints 3 weeks ago just to see if that was true. The half pints colonized about one day quicker.
