pinning, colonizing question......wtf
    #4501193 - 08/05/05 08:36 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Alright from what i saw when i first started, cakes in the fruiting chamber, where white as hell, like paper white.  When I thought my cakes were done they were pretty white, but not white enough.  I waited about 4 days after they looked done colonizing and then cold shocked, dunked and birthed in the fruiting chamber.  Now I have read some things saying that if you are trying to pin, and your cakes aren't all the way done colonizing they still have to finish colonizing before they will pin.  Well since my cakes have been in my fruiting chamber, (4 days so far), I have noticed my cakes became kind of fuzzy and bright white rhizomorphic growth which i figure is good, but my question is...

1.  Did I mess up in putting them in the chamber too early?

2.  And is the bright white mycelium a sign of pinning about to start or what does it mean?

Thanks in advance guys  :laugh:

1. Most likely no.

2. Bright white mycellium is an indicator the cake is healthy.

This may help if you have any other questions on the pf tek... http://www.shroomery.org/index/par/23588
