ive got a weird cake
    #1863719 - 08/29/03 09:25 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

ok. I innoculated some 8 cakes on june 28th, 1 passed away of the cobwebb, 6 were birthed betwenn 20 and 30 days and did a great job. And one didnt get birthed untill about 7 days ago, It took that long to colonize, almost 60 days. So now it overgrew half of the top double ended casing tech with hypnal nots. It has rhizoplazmic growth out the ass and hasnt had any pins. Its odd, has anybody ever had this problem? Im talking about spooning a thin layer of moist verm onto the top of the cake and in about 4 dats, half of that was overgrown with these big mycelatic bumps, rhizo fingers covering this thing and I dont think any of them are pins. Is this bitch about to make the fruit of a life time? Or not shit? :confused:

Well if it has tons of primordia/hyphal knots then I would think that you should just wait it out. Just make sure you got the right temperature, air exchange and humidity. It will most likely be fine.

edit: btw did you dunk it after birthing it? I'm sure it could be mighty dry after colonizing for so long.

Thats a pretty long time, and like Wizz said, "..make sure you got the right temperature, air exchange and humidity.." All these are a factor that could slow things down. Also make sure that the hyphal knots are not aborts which maybe in the way of the others primordia forming.

good luck, =)

This is something I've been wondering about for a while: is there a way to test if the air exchange being provided is adequate? Too much air exchange, and it becomes impossible to keep humidity up, so is there an air exchange test to ensure adequate oxygen is being provided?

Cheers :grin:

Don't sweat it. PRs do this all the time. Do the growths look something like these?

Don't sweat it the shrooms grow right threw the growths. Takes a little longer to start but are pretty much normal.
