Well I give up............
    #1723110 - 07/16/03 11:21 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Ok well I give up on my pf cakes. I did 12 of them with a EQ 12cc mycelium syringe. The jars colonized great. But they have been birthed for 18 days, and no pins. I am doing everything right, all the cakes have no contams and look healthy they have furry bumps of growth on them, but still no pins. I got the syringe privatly and I guess I got some bull shit. EQ is one of the easiest strains to grow and mine arent doing shit for me but being little assholes, and they put a hole in my pocket. So I ordered PLANTASIA MYSTERY from TLG and I'm gonna try again. I'll still leave these cakes in the fruiting chamber if they ever decide they want to grow but I'm fucking fed up with them. I'm cold shocking and dunking one just to see what will happen, I'm pretty sure nothing will happen. I think I just got some shit that wont fruit. So whatever I got screwed, time to start over. I'm wondering if i could inoculate some jars with half the syringe i'm getting and use the other half to make mycelium syringes so I can do more jars. This time I aint fucking around I'm doing 24 jars. And I sure hope they grow. I know you all tell me patience but I've had plenty and this shouldnt take this long so obviously there is a problem. I'd like to thank you all for all of your help, I really appreciate it. I learned a whole lot from this board, I'm thinking about maybe just doing popcorn and doing casings with it but seeing how I have barely any experience I guess I will pf some jars when I get my syringe. Any suggestions or comments are always welcome. Thanks

did u dunk and coldshock ALL of them before birthing?
IMO EQs are kind of slow (comapred to some other strains ive grown)
18 days is a bit long, but who knows, it may take a bit longer....
the syringe u got was obviously viable... since the cake colonized, so u cant blame that....

check your methods,
u sure u have enuff air exchange?
are they getting enuff light?
is humidity high enuff? (99%)
are temps ok? (under 80F)

2 weeks isint that long of a wait....
heh, wait untill u start doing casings...
and u start worrying about overlay...
u sit and watch as the mycellum tears up the casing layer...
till theres NOTHING left..
then your alll like 'OMG is it gonna ovelay'
then a week later it explodes with pins....

now thats worrying..

Well I actually cased 3 of the cakes with plain sterilized vermiculite. As for dunking before birthing them no I did not do that. All requirements inside the fruiting chamber are correct. I do not know what i am going to do. As for WBS that seems a lil too fucking involved if you ask me. I am going to study up and select a new methos of growing these since this is not working out for me.

Don?t give up. Do the tek, just ad the dunk and the cold shock before birthing the cakes. Not the greatest tek but it does work.

This pic is for fun.

Don't give up.

Ok well I Kindda got 2 questions, 1st is i order plantasia mystery strain has anyone tried this strain b4? I was going to go with the b+ but I see all strains as the same. There is barely any information about this strain, and I need something that provides large yeilds, and is easy to grow. Thats why I went with the EQ, but this is day 19 and they still have not pinned. They have furry almost cotton like raised patches of growth some almost seem like balls. They have had these since day 5 but they seemed to get larger in area. Here are some pictures below of the lil sons of bitches. I ordered 1 PM syringe and right now I am using the honey tek to make some more mycelium syringes of this EQ. I got a mycelium syringe by accident and he let me keep it and sent me a spore syringe so I figured I'd put it to use. So I used the one he sent by accident and did 12 jars. I am still deciding how to grow the next time because I got the pftek down its just not growing fruits, I am ready to move on to something more worth while if you know what I mean. Thank you all for your help and here are the pictures of my stubborn bitch ass little cakes. The last cake its hard to see cuz my cam sucks balls, but is bruising i believe a light blueish gray some of the cakes have this from me handling them. The 3rd pic is of some balls of furry mycelium which all the cakes have some are really large like the size of a nickle some pop out like a ball.
