No pins?!?!?!
    #2784840 - 06/11/04 02:38 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Well.. I've had my cakes in my cool box for 2 weeks (minus half a day or so in which I dunked them)...
And yeah there's nothing to be seen... temperature has been kept between 74 and 78 the whole time... humidity is pretty high, it only takes an hour for the plastic bag over the box to fog up... I'm using wet perlite... been fanning regularly at different intervals. ATM at usually twice a day...

So what could be wrong? 2 things come to mind, some of my jars were infact a bit smaller then 1/2 pint + I don't think I specifically used BROWN rice flour but just bought rice flour from a organic health food store place (thats the closest I could come) but still I don't think that these things should make it so that pins wont show... or? Is it possible that my spores are just fucked up and don't produce fruits or something??!?

Thanks a lot

of course theres no set time for them to pin.. its usually between 7-14 days so your at the end of the average time.... of course averages are just that... averages. It could also be that you didnt let the cakes finish colonizing cause humidity soudns fine and temp is good. They wont pin unless theres no more food for the mycelium to grow over and also needs other things like light, drop in temp. You didnt say if your giving it light i bet you are tho. Id just wait longer... growin shrooms takes a lot of patience.

Patience son, patience, I was just like you, waited 3 weeks for my cakes to pin and nothing, when I just lost hope they all started fruiting up the ass, now I have about 9-10 cakes full of shrooms that are growing by the minute :smile:

thanks a lot

*being patient*... ahh still nothing *sigh*
Its now 3 weeks and counting... what if I still don't see anything after another week... just give up or what? Perhaps try casing my cakes instead... hmm, oh well.. I guess I'll just wait some more...

Ok is it like possible that my spores are just fucked up?!?!?!
Its been: I don't know how long... but about 5 weeks... definetly more than a month and there is nothing to be seen... the mycelium grew perfectly but now nothing is happening...
Has anyone ever experienced this? Is there any hope?

Pictures would help a lot. 5 Weeks does seem a bit long for your cakes not to be showing at least some signs of pinning. Primordia, knots, etc.. There is a slight possibility you wound up with a non fruiting strain, however if you got the spores from a sponsored vendor that is highly unklikely. Are you giving them adequate amounts of light, humidity, and air exchange? If they do not look dried out and still appear fluffy and with rigorous growth, I would suggest waiting it out a bit more, or dunking and giving it another go.

Well I did buy my spores from a professional vendo... it was http://www.shayanashop.com/ a shop from amsterdam...
And yes I have been giving them enough of everything... air exchange regularly twice a day... enough light... and perlite humidification. It takes a little under an hour for the plastic bag over my cool box to fog up...
But as a matter of fact they do look quite dried out, though I dunked them before putting them in the box... should I try dunking them again.. do you think that would help.
I'm getting very frustrated cause I#ve used up all my spores...
thanks a lot

PS: and I'll try to get up some ppics this week... I'll have to borrow a camera though, I think my neighbour has one...
