Concerned about my cakes. First time grower needs direction
    #3123419 - 09/11/04 09:14 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Well, its been 9 days now since my cakes have been birthed with no signs of pinning. Accoding to the tek pinning should occur 5-7 days after birth. Ive got myc growing in strings coming off of the cake but they dont seem to be forming into anything, they just seem to be stragling off the cake by themselves.

Sorry for the craptastic pics, its the best my camera can do.

I feel like Im on the wrong track here and somethings gone wrong and I dont know what to do. Could some kind hearted experienced Mycologist throw a beginner grower a lifeline and share some wisdow about what direction I should take to save my cakes?

Fruiting chamber:
90% humidity
Light 6 hours per day
temp ~76F

Does Kramer get those stragling myc hairs growing off of his cakes too? All the pics of growing cakes Ive seen dont have those things. I thought maybe those hairs would turn into pins but nada. Do the cakes look right?

its probably just slower growing than other cubensis substrains (technically each jaris its own unique strain). give it a cold shock if u want to initiate pinning quicker.

oh, and move on to casings, i think theyre easier than cakes(u can technically just leave a casing out anywhere for it to pin, i learned that the cool way)and they give u really fucking sweet yields quickly.

And the other stringy stuff is either hyphae or sclerotia and are fine.  Quit disturbing them and handling them.  Patience!  :smile:

Basically it's like they are just a bit late for 'work', and you are being a real dick of a 'boss' by hassling them about it. :smile: :smile: :smile:
