Help with cake pinning?
    #3752967 - 02/08/05 10:59 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Mmk, well a foaf birthed his first cake, and then he dunked/cold shocked for about 8 hours and then rolled in verm and placed in a terrarium. (85%rh and 74%temp) and the cake has not started to pin after 2 days. The mycellium is actually spreading onto the verm....should I put the cake into fridge to try and trick the mycellium into fruiting?

Also I have a mini casing which I made from a tiny chunk of mycellium. I spawned poo/straw, let colonize, and then cased with jiffy/verm. The casing has an even pinset...but i wonder if i should let it chill in a fridge also to induce pinning? thx guys

Give the cakes more time and the casing too. If the casing is pinning, its coming along good, the cake will take maybe a week or so.

Yeah, this will teach you patience in a hurry. But it sounds like your setup is pretty nice, so good luck :smile:

Cakes do best at >95% humidity.

If it already has a pinset what's to induce? Putting it into the fridge will only slow the process.

haha sorry about the misuse of terms.  By even pinset i mean i think it will have an even pinset.  The mycellium have come up totally evenly and i dont think patching is necessary.

Ok, patience, got it :smile:  Time to start lovin the hobby :smile:

but is the mycellium supposed to start growing onto the verm that i rolled it in?  thx

most definately.

you could have dunked for a bit longer, i always leave mine in for 24 hours. the myc will sort of cover some of the verm on your cake... and you'll get pinning between pieces of verm.

raise your humidity for those cakes, they'll be so much happier if you do... but how are you measuring your humidity? describe your hygrometer for us.
