man I am so bummed right now
    #2574709 - 04/18/04 08:21 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

So finished building my fruiting chamber, I've got three perfectly good cakes that incubated for three weeks (no contaminants, either), and now I can't get them to fruit at all. They've been in the fruiting chamber for an entire week with no visible change whatsoever. They are being humidified with a layer of perlite and lighted with a cold-cathode light from a computer case (is this my problem?). I was really bummed because I thought I in the home stretch. I guess not. Does anyone want to point out something that I'm missing, or something that I could do to help them along? Any help would be greatly appreciated... this is my first time growing. I've read a number of FAQ's, and I still don't have any idea of what to do here. One idea I had was puting the cakes back in their jars and puting them in the freezer over night (bad idea?).

Again, thanks for any help.

Peace and love... kungfu

What are you doing for gas exchange? If conditions are ideal, it may still take up to two weeks to see pins.  Do not put your cakes in the freezer; cold shocking should be done in the fridge where the mycelium won't freeze. Hope this helps :grin:.

Patience dude. You have cakes and a terrarium. It won't be long now. Please do not love your cakes to death.

If you give them what they need they will do something. Give them half a chance.  :wink:

Its hard kungfu, to patiently sit by and wait, especially your first time and in the home stretch.

Just chill out, distract yourself 1 day from them. Don't even look at them for 24 hours, let them cook up a surprise for you.

Hmm... okay. Thanks for the support. Hopefully I can wait another week before I do something drastic... I'm just so damn excited!

Thanks again... kungfu

Colonized cakes will only lead to shrooms unless you kill 'em.

Patience...

The first grow is ALWAYS the slowest... the mushies fuck with you....

Patience.

Mushrooms cultivation  really tests your patience.  Less attention can actually be better for your shrooms in the long run. keeping things consistant makes for happier  :mushroom2: :mushroom2: :mushroom2:

One other question that I'm not completely clear on... do I still need to be really anal about keeping things completely contaminant free?

Thanks again... kungfu

Well, not so much... once colonized, keeping them in a terrarium keeps 'em moist and safe. Cakes are pretty resiliant. You shouldn't touch 'em or anything but you can. There are many things you can do to help with sterility after birthing (H202 in the mist can help)... but it really isn't vital until you start having contamination problems.

You can wipe with used cakes. Dry 'em out first for more texture.

Chill out, you'll be fine.

Did you roll the cakes? AFOAF thinks this helps pin formation. There has been some comments about certain types of light getting better responses, for instance that fourescent might be better than incandescent.

AFOAF usually uses flourescent and sees his first pin or two at 4-5 days, with them really starting to pop out on the 6th day.

What do you do for air exchange? IMO, poor air exchange can delay pinning.
