I believe u can't spray CASINGS once starting to pin.. or i jus might be a rambling fool

As for cakes i never had to use a spray bottle except to spray alcohol or h2o2 to sterilize shit. I would suggest getting a coolmist and a ultrasonic, works perfect for me :smile:

I agree; it sounds athough your humidity is too low (blue cakes). Is your perlite submerged? Too much water will hamper it's wicking properties and the humidity will not reach optimum levels. The perlite should be wet but not submerged.

Misting will not damage pins if done correctly.

hmm.... then spray bottle with cakes should be fine.. how much perlite u got in there? is the perilite wet enough? dunk roll and double end case is always good for cakes.. maybe if she dont have luck growing cakes maybe she'll find fortune casing?

on another note, maybe the spores she got arent from a realiable source? like from one of the sponsors here?

about two inches of pearlite and maybe 3/4-inch of water at the bottom.

the spores are from sporesource and not one of the jars got contaminated

Hmm, everything sounds good. *ponders* Maybe try getting an aquarium air pump and a bubble-wand. That should up the humidity a little bit, although the perlite should be doing it's job and I don't know why. You do have enough exposed surface area of perlite right? IME, I've found you need about 50% of the bottom of your terrarium in exposed perlite. Maybe that's the culprit? *ponders once more* Nope, that's all I can think of right now. Best of luck to ya though.

yeah, an air pump/bubble wand won't cost much and might be in order. You're right, tea-saucers were used to double-end-case the cakes which cover up alot of the pearlite... Let's say we were going to cull a couple cakes to make more room... would you toss out the cakes that are fruiting alot or the ones that haven't put out much yet? (you know, cuz they might fruit better after another dunking and still have lots of nutrients left)
