Slow Colonization
    #3212942 - 10/04/04 04:40 PM (18 years, 1 month ago)

My cakes are colonizing very slowly. It has been 5 weeks since inoculation and several cakes are at about 90% and the rest are at about 60-70%. Should I keep waiting or is it ok to induce fruiting and cauterize uncolonized areas on the cakes?

Take off the tape(If you have tape) and flip the jars upside down.

don't take them out of the jars. even if you cauterize the uncolonized part, chances are the middle of the colonized part ISN'T colonized, and it will contaminate from the middle outward.

flip the jars, make sure your temps are optimal, and wait. patience is the #1 thing in this hobby.

Will the fresh air exchange induce fruiting without light?

It will not give enough air exchange to introduce fruiting that quickly. It will just lower the co2 levels so the rest of the cake can finish, and then be fruited.

not likely. pinning is one of the strongest pinning trigger IMO. the pinning triggers include:
reduced CO2 levels
light
temperature drop (from incubation:80s to fruiting:70s, esp. with cold shock)
