Your jars can be as full or not as you want. If they're very full they're going to be impossible to shake up is all

^ this is a good question.

Also, fruiting a jar for 5 days now. No pins. Am I doing something wrong? I waited five days after full colonization, birthed, rinsed, applied new verm layer (1/4"), misted, bagged. Indirect sunlight. Temp is good.



Its only been 5 days.

Pick the cake up if it feels light or feels dense will tell you.
If you dunked it and put it back in the jar it will have plenty of water, and only will need a surface misting now and then

It's pretty meaty and dense. Feels heavy. But I was sure not to put it back in completely soaking or anything. For future reference, how long do pins typically take to start showing in a brf jar when put into fruiting stage?

I have been doing shoeboxes, and have never done the PF tek. I started with PastyPlates and Violet's in vitro tek before moving onto bulk.

But I became interested in trying this method when my friend gave me two jars of pf tek. The whole reason I never wanted to do PF tek was making a shotgun fruiting chamber seemed like such a pain in the ass. I sure as hell wasn't going to make one for two cakes and I didn't have enough cakes to go bulk. Then I saw this thread.

SO, here I am. Fruited on 6/27, thin layer of verm, misting 1 or 2 times per day and I've got pins. I'm also not sure what variety it is. I dunked one for 24 hours and didn't dunk the other, not sure which is which:




Thanks Bod! :thumbup:

First BRF jar ever!

Should I wait any longer past veil partial break, or pluck?


Thanks!

Well I was told that if I pick before veils break I can get multiple flushes. Is that true? Something about spores touching the mycelium tells it to stop fruiting?

What would you do, bod? Wait longer?

I harvest mine right after the veil drops or tears.
And I've Always gotten multiple flushes

I've had it spore on my substrate before and the second flush came in just fine!

Spores just make them taste worse!

Harvesting left a bit of the stem base in the jar. Is that a problem for the second flush?

I Usually Twist And Pull(Gently) On My Cakes.

Shoeboxes I'll cut and leave a stump.
(I cut as close to the substrate as possible without damaging it)
It hasn't given me a problem yet!
