I birthed a rice cake about three weeks ago. As yet I have but one small ball which I think is a mushroom but it has grown very little. I am using a tupperware container with perlite for humidity. I am having trouble keeping the temp high it ranges from between 18 C to about 22 C over the day. Part of the cake is blue - this has not spread.

The humidity is high ( i think - there is lots of condensation on the container. I fan it twice a day. I did drop it in the vermiculite when I birthed it so it is covered in some vermiculite.

What should I do to get it to produce the goodies? Is the temp to low? Or should I just get rid of it and start again?

before you get rid of it, if there are no sign of pins, you might give the dunk tek a try. if the cake looks basically clean, except for the bluing mycelium, you can also safely give it another week or so. check that humidity--you want it up in the 90s until the mushrooms start to grow.
