need some advice
    #3730550 - 02/04/05 03:32 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I am on my fist cycle of growing these beauties and have a few questions regarding the state of my cakes. First, I've read through a lot of FAQ's and guides and haven't found a suitable answer. I am using the MMGG for my first endeavor. I'm also using the US humidifier on a timer set for 6 min./4 hrs. As of yet the RH hasn't dropped below 90%, which just shows up as HI% after 90(so I'm literally guessing as to the actual humidity with +/-5%. I have had the cakes in the terrarium for about 7-8 days and only white and fuzzy mycelium growth, no pinheads. What could me issues be with this; to high RH, High temps(73-77), or just need more patience? Any additional info, or references would be greatly appreciated. Second issue is I have a blueish hue on the cakes after they were set in terrarium. I've read that this could be from a lack of RH, but I just want a second opinion. There are also some areas that seem more blue than others and it seems to subside when the RH is dropping(in between cycles). But words are cheap so here's a pic



and



any info would be huge. Again thanks

Did you let them fully colonize? And it looks like you have contaminated cakes.

I often wonder about the hours when a man sits alone, watching the smoke of a cigarette, thinking. I wonder what great things have come alive from such hours. When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind---and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."

I agree with Skippy. They appear to be bruised. Did you handle them alot? They could have gotten bruised from dunking, if you did that. I had this happen, too. Otherwise, I think they look fine. :thumbup:

Bruising is when it turns a little blue. Contams are usually not blue and the bruising should be isolated to the area that was actually bruised. So it shouldn't look like its spreading.

Once you see green in person...you'll know it everytime from bruising..

Your cakes look slightly bruised, but not infected; handle with care!

Cakes can sometimes take a while pin. Keep the humidity up and fan a few times per day; fresh air is one of the triggers for pinning. Patience is mandatory.

A cake with an overall blue tint indicates that it is dry; too little humidity.
