casing will not get going and i am perplexed!!

hey all, its bin ah waal..

my mate has a casing of yipa lai strain that was made from one cake and crumbled. the cake took almost a month to colonise due to a cold house. the casing has now been in its fishtank with perlite for almost the same amount of time, and still not pinning!!

its been in high humidity, then conversely fanned and low humidity... a computer fan has been installed in the top with some cotton wool above it, to increase the O2.. its been blasted with light consistently.. turned upside down, because the top was doing nothing ( even though it was not stringy growth).. now there are little pimples allllll around the edges everywhere, but they are staying white and the same size after a week or more.

hmmm.. can anyone help? oh yeah and the cake was dunked into a ziplock bag with water and refrigerated for 12 hours. then a day or two later put outside in 1 or 2 oC air for 3 consecutive nights....

any help would be muchly apreciated... because now the naughty little flies are starting to move in.. they cant all be freed!

from what i've heard, you need high C02 levels to induce pinning... you might want to try fanning a little less
