no pins, could i switch to a casing?
    #4430027 - 07/20/05 09:21 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

heya its been about 7 days since cold shocked and put the cakes in the fruiting chamber. the temp is a good 73 to 78 deg (more in the 75 to 76 75% of the time. they are getting 12 hours of flourscent lighting about 20 watt, using aquarium full spectrum lights. a good 98 to 100% humidity

the cakes are BRF, and get 30 mins of air exzchange every 90 mins, prolly about 6 to 9 ccf per min in a 40 gal terrium.

heres the thing, i couldn't birth at the time, so they hibernated for about 7 weeks, after full colonization. there were no contams in the jars, they looked good to go. i cold shocked em in the fridge for 24 hours.

primodia is forming on the cakes, but its goiing slooooooooooowwwww. three of 5 cakes have about 50% to 60% of the cake with promidia.

i think two things could be happening here, the cold shock slowed down the pinning down alot, or the myc eat up alot of the nutrients in the hibernation period.

do you think its one or the other, or a lil of both, or another reason.

you think i should throw an ice pack or two in there to cold shock again. or jus tbe patient.

would it be possible to remove the cakes, and case them. if so what tek could i use for this that would be well suited (prolly one with good nutrient supply to rejuvinate the colony)

thanx for your time much help would be appreciated

Nonsense.  If there is primordia, you are good to go.  If they grow slowly, they'll just be stronger.  Don't be so impatient (only I am allowed that luxury  :smirk: ).

That is of course if what your seeing is actually primordia, and not hyphae (rhizos, ropey strands)...
