Could someone please bless me with their cake wisdom?
    #4297480 - 06/15/05 01:30 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I have about a dozen cakes in two diffrent containers, they are all fully colonized. I'm using the perilite method for moisture retention. Its been about 8 days and only two very small ushrooms have grown on one cake. However the rest seem to be getting really fluffy and white, but no pins and nothing like the cakes posted in the gallery. I 've been fanning them 2-3 times a day. Could someone please guide me . thank you

You didn't mention lighting. A 12/12 cycle should be good. Try more fanning. Cakes need plenty of fresh air for pinning. Perlite is good for humidity. You want between 95%-100%. You can mist the sides if you don't have any condensation on the walls of your chamber after fanning. Temps should be between 70-76 degrees. The growth you are decribing is a very good sign and I would think you should be seeing plenty of pins shortly. Good Luck.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.

The temp is about 75-78 degrees Fahrenheit, and as far as the light they have only been getting very brief shots. I'd say about 10- 15 min a day.

Lighting could be the problem. Try giving them 12 on, 12 off. And a little more fanning. Temp and humidity are good. 78 is a little warm but should be O.K.

You don't have a problem. Way back when I used to do cakes, about day 9 was the START of when I might see pins. If you don't see pins on day 14, then we'll talk, but you are right on schedule for now.
