Still nothing after two weeks. Very confused.
    #3143018 - 09/16/04 12:10 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Previously, two weeks ago my cakes were not growing. I was instructed to dunk them in water for a 24 hour period and then place them back into the chamber and they would grow in another two weeks. Well, its been another two weeks and there is nothing happening in there. It is very frustrating. What should I do, there is ample water and I fan at-least twice a day???

They are so wet that there are little droplets on some of the mycelia. It is really really wet in there. If you feel the tops of some of them they feel really damp.

Have you covered them in vermiculite since colonisation? The pictures look as though the cakes are not fully colonised.

12-16hrs. initiates pins nicely when coincided with a drop in temps and fresh air exchange. Also make sure RH is high and your verm is moist. I also recommend fanning twice as much as you are now with a fanning duration of 20-30 sec. GL

Could you take a larger pic for us? Its just really hard to see from this distance, just pick a few cakes and take a segmented picture that shows the detail of the cakes?

If the humidity is too high that may be your problem.

Yes, they were covered in verm. after they were colonized.

Okay, so I should turn the ac down to 64F tonight (i had it there for most of last week with no success), and shine a 40-watt light on them? and I should fan a lot more?

For RH should I stick a hydrometer in there for a few hours and then post what the humidity is?

IMO too much verm so the myc doesnt get the light. so its not getting the last most important pin trigger.

i dont think buying a light is nesscary. i would remove some verm.. i usally just roll my cakes in dry verm and call it good. ive double ended cased 1 time and didnt really see a huge benfit. however i would say with out a dbout you have WAY TO MUCH verm. wait till someone else comments on this idea about removing the verm. i am unsure. but make sure your giving your cakes plenty of fresh air exchange/high RH/and a constant temp of 75 degress and 16-18 hours of light for a pin set!!
