I birthed my cakes about 2 weeks ago using the perlite technique into a small chamber with a transparent baggy over the top of the opening, but noticed no pins whatsoever. Taking some advice from some fellow growers I dunked the cakes overnight using the dunk tek and then put it back into the chamber. That was about a week ago. I notice new mycelium growth occasionally but other than that there are absolutely no pins. I fan atleast 3 times a day but I haven't been misting the perlite, instead I add some h20 directly to the perlite. Could my inablity to mist but directly add water to the perlite be the cause? Or should I just dump this cake out? Any suggestions on what I should do next time???? (Besides PMP, I'm kinda without money heh :smile:)

Umm...did ya cold shock it? whenever one of my casings is being a bitch, i just shove the recalcitrant fuck outside (it's currently below freezing here) for an hour or so. When it comes back in, it's usually more cooperative. And cold shocking is necessary (supposedly) with some strains. PUt it in the fridge for a few hours.

MIST. a spray bottle at Home Depot cost $1.69. Also try misting with diluted h2o2. What's your lighting situation? start with 12/12 (if possible) or something close to it. make sure your humidity and temps are in the correct parameters.
