Day 8 and no signs of pinning
    #4103760 - 04/27/05 07:35 PM (13 years, 28 days ago)

Hey there,
It's day 8 and I can see no signs of pinning...I'm trying to be patient, but this is my first try and everything seems to have gone by the book until now. I'm giving 3-4 hours a day of flourescent light a day (best I can do) and 87% to 90% humidity (with my cheap ass meter...who knows if its right but the chamber seems pretty moist..good condensation on the sides of the chamber and the temp a pretty constant 70-74 degrees) and to my eye I'm not any closer than when I birthed them. I dunked, cold shocked and rolled in verm but the bastards are starting to make me sweat !

Can someone offer some good advice ?

here are a couple of photos:



note: 2 of these just end cased, not rolled.





Needs some help here...Thanks !

it's just a fact of life when using cakes.
they are going to take a little time.
in the meantime, i would reccomend trying to raise the humidity
a little.

before it pins, you will see little white knobs (primordia)

good luck

the blue writing - not rolled, only double end cased.

Primordia = they look like little white pimples.

It was put into the picture with photoshop or some similar application.
