help!
    #4106889 - 04/28/05 02:20 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

for some reson, the coloniztion has taken forever with me. fruting seems to be the same as well. i havent dunked the cakes only cold shocked them. ive had a light on them 24hrs for three days now and no pins! and recently i notcied those nast black pins(the ones trha like carbohydrates) gorwing on he bottom of the fully colonized cakes. still i want to fruit them, at least for spores. help! what can i do to speed up the pinning!? since the cakes are coverd with mycelium and there are only a few spots where the black pins at the bottom of the cake are will they still be safe?

still a newbie here, so correct me if i'm wrong, but first thing I would think that dunking would have helped because they need hydrated.

Second, you need some time of darkness. Not all light in fruiting chamber (FC) Like 12hrs on, 12hrs off.

but wait for more help to be sure

Pinning can take over a week.

Cold shocking w/o dunking = dry cakes IME.

If thats mold you have growing on your cakes, and you cannot remove it - then it will spread - it will mature, release its own spores and you wont be able to get a pure spore print from your grow. I would make a few karo jars and try to isolate your good growth and plan to start over.

I havn't dealt with 'black' mold myself. But I wouldn't play around with it. When I cut off mold I use a knife, then I pat down the newly cleaned area with a papertowel that has some diluted bleech water (10:1). Then a semi-light misting of h202\h20. Then either clean your grow chamber, setup another chamber or both.

i shocked them while still in the jars and taped the holes shut, as well as sealed them in a ziplock back, so they were still moist when i took them out of their jars and placed them in the fruiting chamber. do they need darknes as well? ive herd that it does not matter. i just got an idea for saving the cakes too, let me know what you think. cutting off the contaminated part, and using a moist papaer towel that is mosit with h202 and water intead if water/bleach, then setting the cakes on them, the fungis will obvioulsy not grow there wich is fine casue its only a small portion and its at the bottom wich is mostlly vermeculite. im all out of spores and live in california(where they are illegal and hard to get) and absoultly need some spores from thease cakes, any other suggestions on saving them?
