first time grower here. rh in my fruiting chamber is 90%. hope it goes up a little but ohh well. i got my cakes that have been colonizing for about 4-5 weeks. no pinning yet, im gonna dunk them and cold shock them for about 20 hours. just put them in a water container with a little h2o2? roll them in dry vermiculite when i pull them out and spray the vermiculite a little with water. place in the fruiting chamber.
i see little dark spots on some of my cakes, looks kind of blue but it hasnt been growing. i suspect its a dark piece of vermiculite with a layer of myc over it. some of the pieces of vermic. i have are almost black.

hard to tell w/o a pic but i would trust your instinct (any way time will tell). definitely dunk and roll... oh and i have never gotten pins while the cake was still in the jars and i had let a few sit for quite a while (2 months) b4 birthing them.
one other thing about the humidity - check to see if your hygrometer actually gets readings above 90% my first one didn't -- it went from 90 to saying hi (wtf its talking to me now???) gl

those may be pins... looks like youve got it covered. just make sure you clean the jars and seal them well before you put them in the fridge.
