Fruiting/Pinning
    #371585 - 08/14/01 04:50 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

My friend put three cakes in a terrarium three days ago. The terrarium is a plastic cooler (red and white variety) with 2" of moist perlite with a very small amount of water, about 1/4 of an inch. The temp is between the high 70s and low 80s. The cakes get 2 hours of incandescent light a day. (He puts a flashlight in there) He fan them about 5 times a day. His two B+ cakes (from a 99 spore sprint that was mislabeled as cubie/azure hybrid) have wite fluffy mycelium on there but no visable pins. His mazatapec has a little less fluffy mycelium, but bascially the same thing. He birthed the cakes about 5 days after they were fully colonized. He wants to know when the cakes should start pinning and if his progress is normal. Thanks!

They should pin on anything from 5-15 days.

leave 'em out over night in the cold and maybe get them some sunlight for an hour or so - they'll pin in no time at all

"The cakes get 2 hours of incandescent light a day. (He puts a flashlight in there)"

I'm of the same thoughts as Bluemeanie. That flashlight may not provide the right light spectrum to induce pinning (320-510 nanometers?). A little indirect sunlight daily may be just what they require?

Its possible (but not probable) that the one cake is made up of soley monokariotic mycelium, which will not fruit. You need dikaryiotic mycelium to bring about fruitition. Uhmmmm, the mycelium has to 'mate'... This mating would have occurred on the petrie dish culture (if it did occurred) before you inoculated the substrate with it. If the secctor you used to inoculate was monokaryiotic, the mycelium could be ropy, colonize fast and still not fruit :frown:

Maybe the one thats not pinning yet and also has the best growth is because its still not finished establishing a network yet for some reason...

Tell me something good then I might agree with you..
