Problems pinning...
    #2388764 - 02/29/04 01:39 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Alright, well about a week ago i birth my brf cakes, one was dunked, one was not dunked, and two were dunked and rolled.

Well they all look nice, especially the two rolled ones, but theres no pins on them yet, just mecelium comming off everywhere.

The temp is at a constant 78-80 degrees, and i give them an hour of light everyday w/ lots of fanning.

The only one pinning is the dunked one, is it odd that none of the rest are pinning? its been 8 days since birth.

is there something i can do at this point to induce more pinning, or just let them be and see what happens?

Also, the tips of the mycellium are turning a little dark, not alot, just the tips, is this a problem?

sorry for the long post, thanks for any info!

Doesn't sounds like a problem to me. Often a rolled cake will take longer to pin than an unrolled one since the mycelium partially colonize the added verm. I would expect the rolled ones to follow the un-rolled one by a few days.

Sounds like your doing everything correctly. Perhaps make sure that your RH is above 95%. Usually this is quite evident if there is any condensation on the sides or top of the terrarium.

If another week or more passes by without any signs of pins, I would start worrying.

Hope this helps.

Well i know i have a whole lot of humidity... maybe too much?
Theres streams of water on the walls and the lid is drenched when i take it off, does this sound like too much humidity?
can you have too much humidity?

Ehi Magic I had some cakes that either after their birthing
continued to show a great rizomorphic growth tending to
the external, with no pinning for max 2 weeks... I guess
this was cause (and maybe also for you) byt a sort of
"premature" birthing: the cake seem fully colonized, but
it was better wait 3/4 days more before dunking (and
rolling).
Take care of the RH, give a little more light for pinning
to come and avoid touching / turning around / checking /
opening the terrarium / bla bla... You would just increase
the chance for a contam to get in :wink:

Wait and in a week you might have some great fruit bodies
:thumbup:

... and keep us updated!

ime, i would give it more indirect/low wattage light, and WAIT.  Patience is key   man.  When i did my first cakes i gave em 4 - 6 hours light a day fanned 4 times a day, and pins showed up 2 weeks later.  It can take a long time to pin man, even up to a month  :shocked: but always worth the wait :wink:
