Are My Cakes In Trouble?!?! (pics)
    #3270310 - 10/24/04 04:07 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

this is my first grow, and it's pretty exciting seeing the cakes starting to pin. next grow I'll try a casing, and then the double tub tek. this is such a great hobby, I know I'll be doing this for many, many years  :smile:

anyway...

I know that bruising results in blue mycelium, but I swear I didn't touch these cakes. I suppose they may have bumped against the glass jars when birthing, but could it be anything else?

also, in a couple of the pics you can see all those white dots, which I'm guessing are very young pins, but I'm wondering if most of them will become aborts or just stop where they are. there are so many of them I can't imagine most of them maturing. is this normal?

unfortunately I don't have a gauge for RH. humidifying with perlite and the FC is kept at the right temp by a 72F water bath. this produces enough moisture that everytime I fan (every 3-4 hrs) there's enough condensation on the glass lid to completely saturate 1 paper towel.

Well once you have pins your only talking days till you will know if you have mushies from the pins, so in a few days if no mushies something is off.  If you get mushies then something is right hehe  :cool:

where's the moist verm, blueloon? You might want to dunk/roll that baby before next flush. And put like 1/2" of moist verm on top.

Good job, though. Keep you RH up higher if it keeps bruising.

I only double end cased two of the cakes, just for the sake of comparison since this is my first grow. I also only dunked one of the cakes, but the dunked cake is looking really good so I'm planning on dunking them all after the first flush. I'll put moist verm on them after dunking too. but are there too many tiny pins there??

Some will probably abort. I didn't have any aborts before but I made sure the cake had lots of water available to them. Don't worry for now. If you get abort, just pick them. you'll get few nice sized ones if you get a lot of abort. Overall, each cake will produce whatever it can handle.

Good Luck!

:wink: yea, just don't want them to compete with eachother for the limited water supply of the cake...  so when I dunk the cakes after the first flushes, do I have to strip the cakes of every pin?
