Doesn't sound like sufficient lighting to me

Well I have a nice plug in LED but I can't draw attention with wires and what not.If I can just tape the light to the top lid it should be fine correct?

Alright guys this is an update of how things have been going. I changed everything I could still have that same led light I'm using. Anyway here is a couple pictures of the cakes. The oldest cake in the FC is only a week old. I'm starting to get a little nervous though as I havent seen any pins forming on the oldest one yet should I be stressing? I fan multiple times a day still, and i only mist when gently when the cakes aren't shiny. I really hope someone can say I'm fine not to worry I feel like I'm worrying too much about it.

You definitely worry way too much. Stop stressing they will pin when they are ready. I had cakes in my FC for almost two weeks before they pinned.

I know I worry too much, it's just when you go to look at them everyday each day and you're anticipating seeing the first ones and nothing is there, it sort of makes me feel like i did everything wrong or something. And I can't remember if cakes can go bad with time or not or how any of that works.

You can't make them grow any faster sorry. Let it do its thing. Nature always finds a way.

Starting to get really frustrated as I still have no pins. Not even on the cake that's been in there almost 2 weeks. This is it's 2nd week. The other 2 cakes have been in there almost a week now tomorrow actually. I'm constantly fanning to try and cause evaporation. I don't let the cakes get too dry before misting again. I will mist when that shiny coat of water is no longer there. What the hell is going on?

Fanning is pointless. The tub has 100s of holes. You're only supposed to fan after misting. The sgfc is nearly automatic don't make it a hassle. Mist it a couple times a day and be patient

I know that my end answer is just be patient, but I also wanted to know if it were possible for mycelium (cakes in particular) just end up never growing anything but yet staying white and healthy looking?

Yes these is change your cakes don't produce at all, after three weeks if nothing then dunk again and wait a couple more weeks. Be patient man :wink:

oh okay sweet so i can still have another chance if the don't do anything the first few weeks? I heard about scraping with a fork then dunking to stimulate the mycelium. Is that still a thing? If so should I do so if these guys don't produce in the next week or 2? If so that's a relief to me because in my head it was like if these guys don't pin after 2 weeks I'm screwed.

By the way I'm still using that push on and off stick to the wall LED light as my light source. It's a bit of an issue to find a way to use a regular CFL without drawing attention. I'd have to have it kick on late night and shut off early morning or something, plus I need to find an extension cord that I know has to be laying around here somewhere, in order for me to even put that light in anyway. The LED I have in there right now is actually a nice little light source. It's extremely bright, expect the only problem with it is that it get dimmer throughout the night. It's starts out real bright, then within like 30 minutes its really dim. Maybe this is why I haven't seen anything yet?

Ya they do need proper light.  Amibent sunlight works fine. 

But a few hours a night of led dimming aint cutting it broh.

Okay I will try and change it asap because ambient sunlight isnt possible unfortunately. Only thing is, I won't be able to set the light on top without melting the top part of the tub. I'm going to have to like lay it down pointing up at the cakes. It might look ghetto but will it do?

You might melt the tub?

If I only have one tub I just lay a four foot floro light on top of it.

Go grab a 2 foot daylight floro (6500k) and a timer set to 12/12 and take a nap :rockon:

Okay, and the holes will allow  enough light to pass through? My tote lid isn't clear it's white.

okay here the kit i bought came with 2 Grow Lights- 3 diode 5000k LED & 3 diode 2700k LED. Im guessing the push on LED is the lesser of the 2. Last time I did this I just used a standard light bulb and it all worked out fine lol.
