Newbie who needs advice **pics**
    #3786038 - 02/15/05 11:09 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hi,
This is my first time trying this and so far i think im doing everything OK. But im not sure when i need to fruit the jars, a few of the spore injections didnt catch on and grow, so some jars took a little longer to fully colinize.

These are my 5 jars.



This one has what i think is a pin head.


dosent this mean its time to frut the jars? can i frut some now, and add more to my tank a few days later?


Lastly, i am fruiting in a 20 gallon tank, should i use a spraysheld, or just go with perlite on the bottom? what about both?

Thanks in advance for helping a newbie with some questions

You want to birth them a few days after complete colonization to ensure all the substrate is run through, but don't wait too long after that. You don't have to birth them all at the same time, yes you can put some in your tank now and some later.

Your humidifying questions can be answered here:

I don't know if thats a pinhead or not, its hard to tell from the picture alone. In either case, as long as the cakes are completely colonized and have had an extra day or two after that, its okay to birth/fruit. I use straight pearlite for cake fruiting chambers. For cakes you don't have to be too precise with how high the humidity gets. Usually i take some pearlite and put it into a strainer used for noodles or something. Then i take my strainer with pearlite in it and run warm water over it from the faucet. Run the water all over the surface until a steady runoff can be seen from the bottom of the strainer. Then i just let the pearlite drain until steady dripping has subsided and dump it into the fruiting chamber. You'll want about an inch to an inch and a half of it on the bottom.

hope i helped. good luck

I think you can see the stripe off to the right side of the cap.
