a question about pinning
    #4322717 - 06/22/05 12:20 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I used the PF Tek to make brown rice flour/vermiculite cakes, which I fully colonized with mycelium, but now I'm having difficulty getting the cakes to start the pinning and fruiting process. The cakes were 100% colonized, and I put them each in individual "poor man's growth chambers" (resized soda bottles). I air them out twice a day, and give them some light at each airing.

My problem is that I've been doing this for two weeks, and while the mycelium is continuing to grow and make the cakes very fuzzy, there is no pinning or fruiting that I am able to see. I have tried putting them in the refrigerator overnight, but have had no success with that. Is there anything that anyone here can think of that I'm forgetting about or failing to do that might account for this? Thanks in advance for any advice,

what low said and you also need to have a high humidity and do some misting. pinning triggers: light, air exchange, temp drop, and with cakes an rh up to 100%.
good luck

so you did everything except misted them. Cakes Love To be WET!!!! Mist them so that there is water on the cakes at all times. Mist them 4 times a day. If you dont believe me, do it to just one cake and leave the others alone or mist them 2 times a day. The one with the 4 mist a day Will Do Better

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.


I need to proofread
