So I am down to four cakes from twelve, after enduring poor sterilization (the non-PC'd jars), cobweb mold, green mold, but successfully growing and harvesting my first flush.

Well, say what you will about Bleach Tek, but all four cakes were cleaned, bleach dipped, dunked, then bleach dipped again (30 minutes for the dips, 24 hours for the dunk) and stuck back in the freshly cleaned terrarium a few days ago... and now there are pins on one of the cakes and they all look good.

This without fanning them because I don't want to introduce more contams. I'd planned on going to the hardware store today, because I'm going to hook up a filtered coolmist and be done with it. So I peeked at them today and noticed the pins. Block-rockin.

I had been ignoring them, because every time I looked at the terrarium, I cringed: "Do they need oxygen? What about all the freakin mold in this house? When am I gonna have time to hook up that humidifier? Do my cakes hate me? God there's only four of them left."

Just proof that mushrooms grow best when you're not futzing with them.

Remember Shrooms only grow when you are not looking at them, thinking about them, handling them, or talking to them. Don't mess with them, go make up some new jars. - Nan

Cool guys ... my friend's paddling up that same stream.
Since he put the terrarium out on the closed patio a couple of days ago, the pins have started! :smile:

Good shrooms to both of you!

did you already have green mold on the cake when you bleach dipped it? how did you bleach dip it exactly?
