Pins/Knots/Abhorts? Input Please (Pics)
    #4185862 - 05/17/05 11:48 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

OK so I just got my first 2 pins off one of my 12 cakes which were dunked, rolled and double-end cased, then birthed exactly one week ago. It's a PMP setup, RH is 96-97% and temps are 74-75 degrees. I had a flourescent light on a 12-on, 12-off cycle but now I am changing it to 1-on, 23-off.

It looks like there are hyphal knots everywhere on all cakes which will hopefully turn into pins. The only thing I am concerned about is that the cakes (mostly the verm) look dry. I am thinking this should be a normal thing. I have condensation on all 4 walls all the time and the hygrometer is reading ok. So is there anything I can do now except wait? I will have some pics up this afternoon.....

OK here are the pics:

I got your pm...tonight.

sorry I was away from the computer.


Your cakes look great bro!~

As Mag said...take the cakes off the lids...they can sit on the geolite and suck up some more moisture that way.
There is no reason to use lids on geolite.

You can use a fine mist sprayer to mist the cakes even with pins on them.
I have never had a problem doing so.
Just don't leave puddles on the cakes.

everything looks good to me.
you have lots of knots and pins...fruits are on the way.
