Light blue shade to Myco parts (Pics + Video)

Oh, and for some reason my cakes are still growing and not pinning even though I've exposed them to 6-9 hours flourescent light everyday for the past 5 days - I even cold dunked one of them (the one with the least myco) for 18 hours and it's still growing. Do they need to be covered completely with myco in order to start feeding?

Thanks in advance for your time,
Fospher

Then what's the point of having the perlite to begin with? Thanks for the advice, can I get a confirm on that though?

Also, Im having plants grow out of the perlite for no apparent reason. Should I just pick them out, is this a threat to the cakes?

The perlite is in the bottom of the chamber to absorb and then slowly let water evaporate to raise the humidity. Im not too sure on the plants , i would take them out , but i dunno if they would harm your cakes or not.

plants might accually help.
I've read some teks that include putting some plants or other "natural flora" inside your chamber, or around it, to remove the need for fanning, or at least lessen it. The only concern i'd have is its obvious contamination risks.

Just food for thought, you can try it if your feeling brave, or you could take them out, no big deal.

I would put your cakes on the lids that came with the jars your started your cakes on, maybe put a little sprinkling of moistened verm at the bottom to hydrate it a little without waterlogging anything. Just, i second the idea of moving your cakes off of the perlite, its not a good thing.
