No pinning?!?
    #3818000 - 02/22/05 07:12 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

AFOAF has grown mushrooms for several years. After some time off, some cakes were prepared and after a normal gustation period, born. That was two weeks ago and still no pinning. I'm at a deadend. The cakes look as good as any I've seen, with no trace of contams. The humidity is near 100%. The terraium is the same one used countless times. The spores are a bit old but have been refrigerated since day one. Any suggestions?

Are you providing light? Fresh air?

There is a small flourescent aquarium light (it has not been functioning, we just installed a new bulb today) and air is provided two ways:
1) twice daily, a hair dryer is held near the floor of the terr. for 30 seconds or so;
2) an air pump (fish tank type) comes on with the timer that controls a ultra sonic fog maker that is in it's own container, which is connected to the terr. via 1" tube. The air pump forces the fog into the terr. with some fresh air.

In the early days, air was provided with just the hair dryer or by fanning but we had many contam problems so cooked up this design to cut down on openning the lid.

The light bulb problem wasn't detected until a week ago so not sure how much light it has been getting because it comes on while at work, for most of the "on" time. Maybe the new bulb will help.

Thanks!
