PF problems
    #1617940 - 06/08/03 10:44 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I'm a newbie, I did the PF tek, and I birthed the last of my 24 cakes about 3 weeks ago. Put them in an ultrasonic-humidified chamber, 90-100% RH and about 70 degrees on average. To date, I have 1 mushroom growing on only one of my cakes. Some of the cakes have a blue tinge to them, including the one with the mushroom. What am I doing wrong?

The blue-grey tinge sounds like your cake is drying.

Are you certain the accuracy of your hygrometer? Most cheap ones do not hold an accurate reading. The sensors become saturated and hold a higher reading than accurate.

Try misting your cakes occasionally if you are not already. After your first fruiting, a dunking may be beneficial.

Yup, sounds like dry cakes. Add damp perlite to your fruiting chamber.

Give your cakes a double end casing " vermiculite on top " to hold in more moisture

Sounds like your cakes are dehydrated.

I'd dunk them in sterile water....or inject some sterile water into them with a sterile syringe.
