Now, I'm a relative newbie to the shroom world, and have had some good success with my cakes, but this time around I'm am having a little trouble. I've followed the parameters on the cult.faq and in my mush.cultivator book, but can't seem to get my cakes to pin,can anyone give me some problem solving ideas? Here are the parameters.
--- 95-96% humidity (form my electronic humidity gauge)with perlite
--- 73 degrees F temp.
--- 4 small pots of rye grass for the CO2/as well as some fanning
--- air pump for fresh air/as well as some fanning
The FAQ said no pinning is due to high temps and too high of humidity, but my cakes are within the range of the parameters!!!
Also, one of my cakes is turning brown, is it drying out? It doesn't look contaminated,slimy, or moldy.
Please give me some ideas to work with.

ok try upping the temp a little more. Temperature perameters are typically 75*F - 80*F...

Maybe try dunking your cakes as well...if you are concerned with them drying out doing a dunk inbetween each flush will theoretically increase your fruits per flush and fruit size.

Hope I've helped.

you need 4 things - humidity, fresh air, correct temps, and light. unless they're in pitch blackness, you have all four covered.

keep these up, and they'll come if it remains uninfected. how long you been waiting - it can be anything from about 9 days all the way up to about 25 days. pain in the ass, but the best bit is just around the corner. good luck :smile:
