Ready to pin BUT is the humidity OK?
    #315457 - 05/12/01 07:08 AM (16 years, 2 months ago)

My first two PF cakes are waiting (6th day already) on perlite in their terrarium for first signs of pinning. They are covered with irregularly thick, wavy-landscape-shape layer of fluffy mycelium, here and there with small white dots of more dense growth. My question is whether it seems OK to you. Perhaps you can tell from what you have read whether the humidity is too low, too high or just right. Temperature: 72-74 F. Please give me an advice if you feel like it.

It sounds more like the humidity is a little high. That's when you'll see lots of fuzzy surface growth and little strands reaching up/out from the cake/casing.

Make sure you're fanning and/or exchanging air enough. That'll take care of slightly high humidity and carbon dioxide at the same time.
