I think I'm making a world record... slowest pin formation
    #2278150 - 01/27/04 05:39 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

I am losing my patience. It has been 3 weeks, if not more from when I first birthed one of my cakes, and around 1 1/2 weeks for my other. Both have been dunked in a fridge for 20hrs, and rolled after as well. About 5 days ago the little tiny white bumps/pimples appeard (pins I guess?) but that's as far as they've gone. I can't see any progress on the cakes whatsoever. I fan three times a day, spray, etc. all in a properly set up terrainuium. It's room temperature. argggghhhh. I started these in fucking september and I'm nowhere near my first harvest. (this is my first time) I'm guessing that the slowass colonization will only carry over to a slowass fruiting.

What was the longest it took you guys to get pins?

Oh eyah, the strain Im using is "Shooting Stars" from shrooms.ca
Shrooms.ca (scroll down a bit and you'll see it)

I thought that was the problem at first. In the terrainium's first location, there was enough light that if you looked in you can dimly see everything. I moved it now to where it is in plain view of the window (moved about 3 days ago). But where the little white pimples formed, they arent growing at all. They've just formed and are just sitting there.

Your problem lies in the site you chose to buy your syringe from. That place is ridiculous!! upwards of 35$ for a syringe???? Look at the advertisement they have at the bottom for a "Gulf Coast Texas" strain:

"Dear Keeper,
I send you these pictures and spores so you may pass on this wonderful strain to the world! My cat accidentally ate a spore print and washed it down with 'Keepers Brew' when I wasn't looking. He took a 'DUMP' in your Kit A and before I new what had happened I found these monsters!"

Yeah, right. Stick to the real vendors. I reccomend http://ralphstersspores.com next time, or http://sporeworks.com

Other than that, what are your growing conditions? What is your setup? Tell us more. Pictures would also help.

Well I ordered from this site because it was being advertised on Hightimes.com, and it was also in Canada which is where I live. You also have to rememeber that those prices are in Canadian dollars.

Here's my setup. I have the plastic covering pulled down really tight, then I secure it with duct tape to make it airtight.

For the far away picture, where I am standing to take the picture is where the window is, thus where the light comes in, so I don't think lighting will be a problem anymore. I suppose they get about 12hrs of light a day? A little less? I use a fine mist sprayer, spray/fan 3 times a day. The shield in the terrainium is just a tin foil pan. Temperature is ohh about room temp, if not a tad bit higher.
