Help please....whats wrong with my cake???
    #2555369 - 04/13/04 05:42 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Ok I need help I dont know what the hell Im doing wrong or if Im just freaking out because my cake isnt doing anything but sitting there. Will try to give as much info and pics as I can....
(substrate used-verm/brf)
March 22nd I inoculated 5 jars (small drinking glasses) with B+ strain
March 27th I noticed mycelium forming in the glasses
April 1st Still waiting colonization, growth of the mycelium coming along very well
April 5th All of the glasses have a lot of mycelium formations in them and one of the glasses looks almost completely colonized
April 6th I birthed the one cake that looked almost completely colonized, not a good idea I know but patience got the best of me
I dunked it and put it in my terrarium where I have air pump and water/peroxide mix with perlite in the bottom of the terrarium
April 7th Noticed white fuzzy shit all over the cake in the terrarium.
The remaining glasses that were not birthed are flipped upside down in the incubator so the myc can colonize the bottom of the substrate.
UP UNTIL NOW= The cake in the terrarium has these little white spikes coming off of it. The whole thing is white and its humid in there and I fan in there like five times a day and I spray the lysol on everything in here before I do so. I know I birthed this cake early but is it normal for it to take this long? I would be so happy if I just seen a pin, or anything would be great. And it gets plenty of light so what else can I do? I will be birthing the rest of the jars probably at the end of this week and I dont want to go this route if theyre not going to fruit, might try casing. I think I can find some cow poop around here but not sure what kind of poop to get lmao.
Heres some pics of the cake and its living quarters.....






Any ideas??

Yeah, looks good. I fore see pins in days.
Some times cakes go a bit fuzzy like that, it's
due to high humiderty.

p.s as you seem to have an air hose going into the fruiting chamber, you prob dont reallyneed to fan. As long as it is on 24 7

I must be getting lucky then. I just birthed my b+ cakes 1 week ago exactly. All are showing pins, some just one, but tons of hyphal knots, and one has like 20-30 pins on it. I have heard people say around here it can take time, even up to 3 weeks. I guess patience is the key.

I wish you the best of luck.

ninjashroom, dunk your cakes and then stick them in the fridge over night, then try again, a good cold shock should do you some good...

and to the original post... like previously said, its the mycelium reacting to light, it should pin soon, u could cold shock if it sits like this for a few more days unactive... but i suggest leaving it alone... its going to pin soon so it seems.. nice cake.. HAPPY SHROOMIN
