Arghh nothings happening!
    #3168857 - 09/23/04 05:37 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I've recently put two largish cakes into one of those heated propagators. They were 100% colonized when I returned from a trip, I left them a few days and put them in there where they have been for nearly a week. Nothings happened at all and whats more there are a couple of blue spots that have appeared. I know this is because of the water, I only misted inside twice because the perlite was keeping it humid enough. Are these cakes still gonna produce any decent mushrooms despite a small bit of bluing? I've got two other cakes which I haven't yet birthed cause they didn't look that great but I may be forced to if nothing happens with these. Its rather annoying having gotten to this stage, and realising that it may have been a waste of time and money. I had to use all my spores so if these cakes don't work I've reached a dead end. I've been draining out the excess drips and fanning at least twice a day. Anyone know if theres something I can do or do you think I'm being too pessismistic and should wait it out?

First off, sometimes it takes a while, so be patient!

Secondly, what are your RH and temp. measurements for the chamber?

Thirdly, are they getting light?

and lastly, have you cold shocked?

Answer these questions, and more will be revealed.

Definitely wait, man. Patience is a big part of mycology. Have faith.

id say up the fanning to about 5-6 times a day, induce a temp dropif you havent already, for cakes keep the humidity up around 90-100%, and expose to 12 hours of light a day till you see pins then drop it down to about 6hrs a day. oh and the best advice i can give you is be patient these things take time.

Well I feel a bit stupid now because I have no way of measuring the temp and I have no idea what RH stands for! Also I have no idea what temp the propagator is heated to, although I remember hearing before of people on here who have used the same one (from B&Q) but cannot find more information on it now, except the measurements (H 19cm, W 38cm, D 24cm).
They are next to a small window and so are getting as much daylight as there is. Is this a bad thing?
Unfortunatly I had not read about cold shocking until after I put them in, although I might try it with the other two cakes.
Lastly, I just realized that the propagator is plugged in at all times so maybe unplugging it from time to time to reduce the temp may help a little. I guess I shouldn't lose all hope just yet!
