Yes, I am new at cultivation and using the PF TEK, with brown rice flower and an ultrasonic humidifyer. After my failed first attempt, I have about 4 cakes with 10 full shrooms a piece, and about 20-30 pinners per cake. They were looking dry so i dunked em in sterilized water, with the pins. Now one cake is really starting to take off, but the shrooms are not breaking thier viels. In other words, the caps wont open up. The stalk keeps getting thicker, and taller, but the caps wont open. I was wondering if this had to do with the particular strain i am growing, PES Amazonian P. Cubenis, or if it may be my humidity or terrarium setup. I am using a cooler with a drip shiled and modified plexiglass window. Can anyone, help, I would like my caps to open up to at least the size of a half dollar before cultivation....????

dunking pins is supposed to cause them to abhort. I wouldn't advise that. just let em grown till they stop growing or the veil breaks.

It's usually when they keep bulking up they stay closed.  They get fatter, just slowly, though.  They should be getting really fuzzy all along the stem too with hint of bruising below the cap and bends.  You should harvest your cakes and start working on the next flush.  Growth is minimum at this point.  The problem could be many, but most likely the it's short on nutes or water.  It could be also be that cake was too dense and the inside wasn't fully colonized, thus lack of nutes.

I say move on to next flush. :wink:
