Slow, almost no growth...
    #3890155 - 03/09/05 12:55 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I made a PF cake following their guide.  I inoculated :syringe: it with a spore syringe filled with B+ purchased from sporebank.com

The rice cake has been in a glass terrarium for more than 3 weeks and the only growth is two small bumps.  It has now stopped at that point and it has not changed in size.

heres my setup:

10 gallon aquarium
ultrasonic humidifier *modded with 15k ohm resistor*
humidity at a constant %85-95 never above

I really have no idea what can be wrong, but what do I know? I'm still a newby  :smile:

How are you measuring your humidity? Most hygrometers are notoriously unreliable unless you lay out the $ for a good one. Cakes like 99-100% humidity. The cat suggests that you put a layer of damp perlite in the bottom of your terrarium, and maybe put a timer on the ultrasonic so it's not blowing constantly.

did you pack the verm/brf into the jars or did you lightly sprinkle it in?

*Edit*
Wait a sec...it has been in the fruiting chamber for 3 weeks? Did you incubate it? If it only has a couple patches of myc in it you should still have it in your incubator. Right now u should be worried more about temp than humidity.

Are your cakes still in the jars? You shouldn't remove the cakes until they are fully colonized. Any pics? If so post them.

The cake is already fully colonized, sorry I forgot to mention that.
Also my humidifier is also on a timer.

What are your temps?

If it's too warm or too cold it wont want to fruit.

The temperature is usually at 73 degrees, but once it climbed to 81 degrees.

*The temperature is currently at 73.2*

Also, what is the highest temp for them to fruit? In the summer my room can get about 81 degrees, and in the terrarium it could possibly go to 90!

73f is pretty good. Hows the co2 level? Are you giving enough air exchanges per day? Light?, ect.

The timer (humidifier) comes on 6 times a day, I think that should be enough CO2 exchange...

if temps are getting high in summer you can get two small plastic bottles of water and freeze them. put one in your terrarium and swap them over when they melt.

Also, how much light per day are they getting? What kind of light? And is it timed to be the same time of day each day?

It gets natural sunlight as long as my window is open so I'd say about 6 or more hours of indirect light/shaded.

About dunking...  Just dunk the cake in water for 24 then roll it in verm?  Hmmm..... :smile:
