Pinheads aren't appearing...
    #2467685 - 03/24/04 03:10 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

After my first PF cake was fully colonized it was placed in a terrarium that is kept at 70-80 degrees and kept moist with an ultrasonic humidifier. It has been a week so far and there are no signs of pinheads or any other growth. Small water droplets formed on the cake if the humidifier was kept on for too long, so I didn't know if this could be the reason. Any thoughts/recommendations?

-At least a few hours light a day!

-At least 3 air exchanges a day!

-Optimal fruiting between 70*-75*F!

-Humidity for cakes, 95%-100%!

-Dab off the water droplets with a clean soft paper towel!

If you're just doing cakes and not casings, how about trying Hippie's invitro method, and then putting the cake in a taller jar when you're ready to make a print on a later flush (to give the mushrooms enough room to expand their caps)? It's less work, and because the container is small and enclosed, you have better chances at keeping the humidity level high enough for pin formation. All without fanning. Sure, they don't look as pretty, but a dry shroom looks the same regardless of how pretty it was when it was fresh. And from what I read, Hippie's tek yields just as much as if the cakes were in a terrarium. I read about a guy here at the shroomery who had great difficulty getting cakes to pin, until he started using the invitro method.

Or if you insist on a terrarium, then maybe leaving the cakes in the jars until you see small red pins would be a good idea.

You may also want to look at the coffee dunking posts, as this apparently creates pins like crazy.
