Cakes birthed, 1 shroom, no pinning.

Ok. This is my first try on cultivation. See pictures below.

The cakes were sucessfully colonized, althought it took very long, 4-5 weeks, I believe due to some low temperature I got during the period.

I have birthed them into a rubbermaid container with lid, moist perlite layer in the bottom. Well, this has been 4 days ago.

Problem: I don't see any sign of pinning. There is 1 mushroom growing in each of the cakes, from a pin that was formed when the jars were (suposedely) still incubating. And that's it.

Any suggestions? Should I still have hope?

I'm using room temperature, I'm in the northeast USA so temps now should be very appropriate, thermostat shows (72-76) around the day. Humidity seems to be very high; there is condensation in the inside of the rubbermaid box and the perlite feels moist (how should I check humidity?)

you can check your humidity with an RH monitor, which you can get at walmart or other stores like that. Did you originally cold shock/dunk that cake? If not, you should, and that might be the problem to your low yields. Good luck!

did you coldshock/dunk em before you birthed em?
they look dry,get a air pump and difuser like the one magash did(pmp),it helps heaps with freshness,humidity and do what gpwebbler said....dunk em for 12 hours.
